My Rain-dog arrived today and I am really impressed with it on initial inspection the build quality is even better than my Two-dogs if that is possible. I am just waiting for some wet weather now so that I can try it out.
Many thanks Cliff

I didn't want to wind up those who have dithered about getting one of these and are now waiting for Cliff to find more material, but mine arrived this week too and like you I found the material and construction to be first class. My favourite Barbours were always the unlined Durham and the Longshoreman and this is the perfect combination. Wore this out the other night in a real downpour and as a grown man I was almost embarrassed at the thought of being seen chuckling to myself.
When and if Cliff gets more supplies, don't dither - get one!

Inspired by this thread (and the lack of fabric at the moment!) i decided to have a crack at making something similar myself with some material bought off ebay. I used a WW2 windproof smock as a template. Wow - its a lot of work, and really quite challenging. I spent the bulk of the weekend on it, and its still not finished (and probably when it is, it will be no-where near as professional job as Cliff's). Makes you realise how much time and effort goes into making these things - and what a bargain they are for the price!

The "Rain-Dogs" weather shield...........Mark two:cool:

I have managed to get some waxed fabric however this is heavier in weight and dark green in colour.

It will gain a lot of character in use as you can see from the picture below , left has been crunched up



The hood on the mark two will be lined in Army grade boiled wool .( Or buy it with an un-lined hood )



I have made up a hood so you can see what it looks like ..:D





Price with lined hood £70 ,,,,,,,,,,,Unlined hood £ 65 ,

Made to your size and posted to your door in the UK

Payment via paypal

Thanks for looking

You ought to be banned, tempting folk who already think that they maybe have broken a basic law of the Universe and git "too many jackets" although there is naturally no such concept.
Great looking kit Sir !

Make some slightly larger "Polish" tipis with it! Simpler construction, slightly higher, bit more room inside, loop on the top....ideal!
