Raincoat survey

I love almost everything about my raincoat. I love the zip out lining, making it useful for much of the year.
I love the nice big pockets with room for my mittens.
I love the hood which helps me stay dry when we walk in the rain.
The only thing I don't like is the way it makes me look like a bag lady. It is eleven years old, and fit me 45 pounds ago. I am thinking about replacing it. What do you think?

I dont think it needs replacing at all. You can get many more layers of clothes underneath so can be nice and warm as well as dry.

Ladydi, I'd keep it and just get another when and if I saw one on sale that I really liked. Then you can use the old one when your working in the yard and it will continue to serve you . Ginny

It's nice to have such sensible friends! I like the way you think, Suzanne and Ginny, and I will definitely take your advice!

Diana, as long as you are smiling like that, nobody is going to notice your coat. All they will see is your smile. :-)

I think the coat looks fine anyway, and if it is warm and keeps you dry and you like it, I think you should keep it!

What a nice thing to say, Daisy! Another bit of good advice from a good friend!
