when I was a boy of 10 in the mid 60s, I loved wearing my black see through plastic mac.I would go to my bedroom "to read", but it was an excuse to wear my mac in private. If I ever played out in it, I used to ask one girls down the street to give me a good, hard shake! Dont know why even now,but I loved to be shook violently in my plastic mac, and she always obliged. I also shook my mac dry after a shower, but I was always still wearing it! I wish I coild get hold of a plastic mac now in a local shop.

Pakamacs are simply lovely, and it is always a pleasure to write about them-indeed, I could write books about them and people who wear them. Although I am a fully committed rainwear enthusiast, enjoying nylons and rubber macs too, it is always the basic grey-black, semi-transparent, unisex, lightweight, roll-up plastic vinyl mackintosh that is so central to my enjoyment. and I wear them more than any other rainwear item. How about forming a Pakamac Society?

great shame these are no longer made, they are a pleasure to wear both outside in the rain or inside for a bit of fun

There was nothing like wearing see-through plastic Pakamacs at school on wet days. We boys were simply blown up with pleasure and excitement by these beautiful macs, especially when we rolled them up and smuggled them into our bedrooms!! More to follow....

Plastic Pakamacs are more than a convenlent way of waterproofing the wearer-they are even more than beautiful and exciting garments to wear-they provide a wonderful way of ENJOYING rainy weather!!

To a rainwear enthusiast, "Pakamac" is almost the sexiest word in the English language, surpassed only by the two words, "Plastic Pakamac". Let's have more waterproof "cameo2 remarks in this space, and let's try to get these macs in production again!! Who knows!!

Nothing like them they started my interest in Rainwear in my teens in the 50's

These lovely grey-black see-through macs started my mac enthusiasm in the fifties-and I have never looked back!!

Still the best plastic macs ever made, beautifully see-through. At school, we boys loved them, some of us having two or three. Please let's have them back!!
