The Raincatch Raincoat Makes Precipitation Instantly Potable

With the Raincatch Raincoat you no longer need to travel with a water bottle in your bag, so long as there are showers in the forecast. It would be silly to feel dehydrated on a day that could quickly drench you, so a pair of designers have come up with a very economical solution to acquiring some clean H2O.

This peculiar poncho has been cleverly conceived to collect, store and purify rainwater all within this one wondrous garment. The falling liquid runs down the bulky hood and into the oversized collar, and proceeds to accumulate around the shoulders and inner pockets of this whimsical smock. It then undergoes a process of sanitation that turns dirty urban water into a safe drink. The accrued contents of the Raincatch Raincoat by Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble can be consumed through a network of long tubular straws.
