I live in Southeast Alaska, which is in an actual rainforest, so I know rain. There are two seasons here: the rainy season and the extremely rainy season, so I need a long raincoat to protect me fully from the heavy rain and mud on my dog walks. I’m a tall girl at 5’11” and 125 lbs, and I ordered a small and I’m happy to say that I’m fully covered in the rain with my long coat going down to my shins, below the tops of my knee-high tall rubber rain boots. Now I enjoy the dog walks during torrentially rainy downpours, where I zip and snap my long coat up to the top, pull on my tall rubber Hunter rain boots, and brave the heavy rains and deep mud with my dog. We were pounded with torrential sideways rain and splashed with mud, but in my long raincoat and tall rubber rain boots, I stayed protected and dry from head to toe!
