China rain coats

I am finding that I am in need of a rain coat for riding to, and from, work. I do not change my clothes when I get to work; so, whatever I get needs to be worn over regular clothing.

Is there a recomended brand to get, or are they all pretty much all the same? is it one size fits all? (I havn't even started looking yet)

Where do I get one? I havn't seen them in the streetside shops or the supermarket, I may have just not looked hard enough, are they typically near the umbrellas?

Hey, Robert C -- I just saw your post. Do you mean the coats that cover the bike as well as the rider? Assuming you haven't bought one yet, you should be able to get one from a supermarket. Near the umbrellas would be a good place to start, but it will depend on the store. Ask for "zixingche yu yi" (自行车雨衣 -- Bicycle Rain Coat). I don't imagine there's a big difference between brands. They do come in different sizes, so see if you can try one on.

Thanks, yes I finally found where they were (of course, no where near the umbrellas). As things happen, after I got it the weather cleared up and has only had one morning of rain since. I am sure that it will eventually get some use.

Thank you
