For the cold weather it has to be coats, boots and macs for all occasions. A clear hooded mac over a fur coat for me and a long clear hooded mac over her winter coat for Shannon.

Four Fabulous ladies to be enjoyed. The beautiful Sara dressed in a lovely bright red trench mac with a matching rain hat and red Hunter boots and this was an outfit she loved so much. Posing and showing off her outfit with a big smile on her face is a delight to see and we want to keep this lady for a very long time. Imogen is in a bright purple hooded rain jacket and red Dunlop wellies over her patterned tights and lazing about on the chaise lounge is a perfect backdrop for her. Lilith is out in a long red cape on a sunny day, capes may not be necessary in the bright sun but it does make them look beautiful. For Violet is is a yellow heavy duty rain suit with black rubber boots and gloves. The suit having a big hood did mean it was used to cover her head and then tightened down over her face, for the fun of it, until just her nose was poking through.
We obviously have a lot of gas mask fans including Milo, Phil and now Justin who has said that having the ladies fully covered is such an exciting sight, especially when gas masked as well. Here we have Mallory in a clear red mac with a rain hat and gas mask with an umbrella to complete her outfit. The umbrella being something Justin thinks they should always have when gas masked. So then we have Sara double macked, gas masked and again with an umbrella. We do agree with Justin that umbrellas with gas masks does look wonderful.
It may be April but it has still been very cold so another chance to go out in coats and macs along with gold Hunter boots and gloves of course. I am wearing a favourite leopard fur coat and on the beach on a cold windy day. A clear hooded mac had to be worn as well which is perfect for a cold day. Shannon is wearing a clear mac over her camel winter coat and loving very minute of it as she hates the cold and loves to dress up against it. Being fully dressed makes her very happy and hopefully it does you too.

Luci is wearing waders for the first time and a black patterned rain jacket and enjoying her first time in the surf. Then spreading herself out along the fence she is happy to show off her legs, waders and lingerie. Elyssia is fully dressed in black and tightly hooded with long black rubber gloves and she adds a wet and short clear rain mac over her outfit after soaking it in the surf.

These three ladies are simply the best. They are all stunning and looking amazing in lingerie, boots and macs, what more could you ask for? Luci is wearing a very long clear mac over her beautiful red lingerie and is couple with short red boots. Showing herself off standing and then sitting with her legs spread and draped over the chair arms she is a very beautiful sight. Shannon is wearing blue lingerie and tights with heavy blue boots and a see thru blue trench mac. She fits the mac on herself and then opens it to reveal her body and outfit and after removing her bra moves outdoors with a blue sou'wester on her head. Lilith is wearing thigh patent high heeled boots, black pvc leggings, a clear mac and nothing else. All the art work you see is her own and this blonde stunner is always happy to create more art with us here.
Two requests for something similar. Jose has asked to see more of long and loose fitting macs as she finds having the ladies fully covered is quite exciting and ICK would like to see more long capes and both have suggested that the hoods should be tightened as much as possible. So first here is myself in a long oversize navy mac out on the cliff top in a strong cold wind (spring has not arrived here yet) with the hood being tied tight which was very welcome against the wind. Violet is wearing an ankle length long and loose purple see thru cape and looking quite lovely dressed this way and she has her hood tightened down over her face which is something she always enjoys.

Luci is playing about in the park in a white mac and then playing around in the mud and puddles in a beautiful maroon mac.

Imogen is wearing a beautiful gold trench coat with gold Hunter boots and taking her time while sitting in a revolving chair putting on a concertina rain bonnet that matches her mac. When on her head she pulls if forward down over her eyes and then her lips until her whole face is covered and then she wraps it tight around her face. Elyssia is out in a yellow 1960's mac with a shoulder cape and with yellow wellies. In her hands she has a yellow spotted bonnet and a yellow patterned concertina one, both of which end up on her head and you can decide which one you like the best.
Luci is so welcome here, she is stunning in every way as you can see here. In a shiny black mac and black shiny boots she was more than willing to show off her legs and stockings and her lovely genuine smile shows how happy she is to be here. With the mac fully done up around her and with a matching rain hat and umbrella, her appearance is wonderful. In a long white hooded mac and black and white boots she loved to play around in the park. It may have been a kiddies but she has had a ball trying out all of the equipment including pulling her mac up over her bottom as she bent over. Then it was the mud and puddles in a long hooded maroon mac with red boots and gloves. This was something she had been waiting to do and she found it just as much fun as she thought it would be. All of this means is that Luci will be back for lots more as she is so excited and happy to be her, which is very lucky for us as well.

First with Imogen in long macs and rain hats and then with Luci enjoying her first time in yellow Rukka macs.

Say hello to Luci who has just joined us and what a stunner she is in all ways. These are her first pics and she is down in the surf in a blue mac and boots after draping herself over the wave breakers. Her boots soon ended up flooded as she played around then sitting on the wave breakers she pulls up her mac to reveal her stockings, boots and lingerie while keeping her hood up. A very beautiful sight of a very beautiful lady. Sara is wearing a blue plastic trench mac with blue boots and a sou'wester and laughed her whole way through as she ended up soaking wet as the waves got bigger and bigger. Give this lady mud, puddles or water like this and she is in her element. She had to pour the water out of her boots by kicking her legs up in the air.
Being with my ladies is a great pleasure and when meeting and dressing up with such beautiful ladies like Luci I am a very happy lady as you can see Luci is a beauty with a body to match and a beautiful smile and we are happy to say that she is loving being here and will be coming back for lots more. Have had several requests recently for more photos and videos of us ladies together so here we are in yellow Rukka macs an yellow wellies with yellow rubber gloves and yellow tipped umbrellas for good measure. A full outfit has to be the way to go. With hoods up and umbrellas open, the only other thing you could want is for Luci to open her mac to show off her stunning red lingerie as macs and lingerie together is very difficult to beat.

Two sides to Lilith. First in a silver body suit with a clear spotted mac over the top and then on the beach in a shiny black hooded mac and out in he sun.

I am very lucky to have so many beautiful friends and being with Sara, the latest beauty to appear here, is such a delight and I hope we will be spending lots of time together from now. With us both in silver hooded macs and big heavy black boots, it was delightful to be so close to her and hooding each other was an experience to be enjoyed. Cuddling up to each other and then opening the macs to show off our outfits and boots had to be done as well. Then with us both in shiny black macs and high heeled boots it was another reason to b close even though we had to fight over who wore the hat. Then with Imogen and with us both in full length macs, boots, hats and with umbrellas. For Imogen it was a bright red mac and a black spotted white mac for me and both were tightly belted. Hats had to go onto our heads and the umbrellas were opened to cover ourselves in a way rainwear ladies should be covered.
Lilith has many desires and if the involve anything alternative or different from the 'normal' she is always up for it. This is one of the reasons why she fits in here so well. Looking stunning in a body hugging silver one piece hooded body suit and silver Hunter boots she puts on a clear black spotted hooded rain mac over the top, the two together looking wonderful with the mac open and closed. In a tightly belted shiny black hooded mac she is down on the beach on a sunny, windy and cold day. She loves the beach huts and would love one of her own and she makes her way across the beach with the hood up to keep out the cold wind.

Rainwear can look very pleasing when worn indoors as well as outside and here is Lilith in her flat in a long clear hooded mac and red boots, lounging around and wanting to show off some of her amazing art work. Then in her bedroom in a long pink hooded mac with gold Hunter boots she is laying on her bed looking quite stunning. Shannon has just moved into a new home and is very happy to be there. In a yellow Rukka mac and red Hunter boots she is happy to pose and lay onto her sofa where she is happy to hood herself and then puts up an umbrella to complete her outfit. I am in a full length rd mac and boots and wanted to put in on after cleaning it to see how it looked. I am very pleased now that it is very shiny again.
A cold wet day for Imogen so she is fully dressed in bright red rainwear with a long hooded mac, wellies and gloves and she is making her way through the mud and water at the village pond. Gettng a little stuck was inevitable and delightful to see at the same time. Lilith is down on the beach in a retro red mac with a matching rain bonnet. This 1960's style of mac is lovely to see on her and she could not resist showing off what she is wearing under the mac before fully buttoning it and adding the hat before venturing out into the sun, having a play in the outgoing tide and finding a little crab to keep her entertained.

Imogen taking advantage of the flood water to go wading in an orange rain suit with black rubber hip waders.

Water is a vital ingredient in the rainwear world, whether it is to protect you from it or to enjoy being out in it. So being close to water whether it is a river, lake or the sea is always a good idea. Shannon is dressed in a long clear hooded mac and down exploring the raging flooded river near her new house. Grateful for the hood against the cold wind but the cold did not stop her having a little paddle in her red wellies. This will be a great spot for wading when the raging torrent slows down a little. I was in a red rukka mac with purple boots and gloves when we discovered this little boat yard and mooring area. The outfit was perfect fro this sort of venue even though the ducks were not that friendly!
Beautiful ladies in rain suits are something that we have had a lot of compliments about over the years and especially from DJ Doug and Ivan H both who will admit it to being one of their favourite sights, with Dough saying the heavier the outfit the better the ladies look. Here is Violet in a heavy green rain suit with the bib pants done up over the top of the jacket which she removes to show off the delightful hooded rain jacket. For Shannon it was red rain suit with red rubber boots and gloves. This tight fitting outfit does show off Elyssia in a most enticing way.

White knee high socks and plimsolls and then putting on boots, always a lovely sight.

Shannon has moved house and is keen to explore her new area and what better way to do it than first in a beautiful long hooded navy mac and checking out the snowdrops. Then finding a stone wall and then a river bridge to climb about on after hooding herself against the cold wind was when she came across the flooded marsh land it was time to change into a yellow rain suit and waders. The marsh was not as deep as she hoped but still enjoyed herself as she waded through the muddy water and ended up crawling out of it, just because she could.
Knee high socks and putting on boots does look so very good when completed so thinks 'The Man from Dallas' and it something we are delighted to do as the final effect is very pleasing to see. In white knee high socks and white plimsolls and then putting on very heavy black and red wellies, the red to go with the delightful red trench coat I am wearing. Then a little chore of feeding the dog. The effect with the socks appearing over the top of the boots is quite beautiful. Then in patterned socks and black plimnsolls I put on black and white boots to go with the retro black and white mac and then added black and white gloves and umbrella before venturing outdoors to top up the bird feeder and close the gate.

Ladies in two macs and looking even better when the macs are soaking wet. Shannon is wearing a clear mac over a see thru black hooded mac and Violet has a red see thru trench mac over a black hooded one.

These ladies look just right in their rainwear outfits, as we are sure you will agree. Daisy is wearing a pink hooded mac and silver Hunter boots and she is playing around on the steps in the park. After hooding herself she could not resist showing off her shorts and bare legs on a very cold day, nut she was happy to dress like this. Sara is all in shiny black with mac, boots, gloves and rain hat and playing around in the muddy puddles, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Then it was off to the church and grave yard with her hair tucked into the mac and the hat in place. This beautiful lady is going to be a tremendous asset to this site. Then a few pics of a double macked and gas masked Lavinia out in the sun. Then a short haired and blonde Violet is gas masked as well as well as being delightfully dressed. Then followed by Ruby in a blue hooded mac wearing a blue full head Russian style gas mask out in the sun. Being fully dressed and masked in the sun is always a good thing to see.
Sometimes wearing wearing two macs at the same time can be a delightful sight especially when it is beautiful ladies wearing them Shannon has on a clear hooded mac over longer a see thru black hooded mac, along with boots and gloves,of course. Both of the macs are wet and when she is double hooded as well she looks and absolute delight. Then sitting on the garden bench and fully dressed like this is another reason we love her so much. Violet is in a black plastic hooded mac with red boots and gloves and after making her way across the park she pouts on a red plastic trench mac as well. Then hooded and with the red mac fully buttoned and belted around her she looks adorable and she thinks so too.

Violet is wearing a lovely camel coat (sent to us) with a white spotted clear mac over the top

This is Sara and what a delight she is who has so much enthusiasm for what we are doing as she is a great pvc lover and did not realise that rainwear like this was so popular with so many. This is her first time in macs and boots and the first thing she wanted to do after donning a bright red mac and boots was to kick about in the puddles. In an ankle length black spotted white mac she tried to friend the ducks and sea gulls without much success as they only wanted food. She looks gorgeous and says she felt wonderful dressing like this, so we will have many more macs for her in the future. Then double macked with a long clear hooded mac over a black one and with gloves, boots and umbrella she was a very happy lady and loved to be wrapped up like this with a belt tied as tight as possible. This lady is going to be a wonderful asset to this site and hope you all love her#r as much as we do already.
Gordon is very happy that the weather is cold as he wants to see more of the ladies in winter coats and macs, especially with this delightful camel coat (one of two) that he sent us a while ago just for this purpose. So here is Violet with white boots, gloves and belt, as requested with a clear white spotted hooded mac to go over the top. A very cold and windy winters day and even when fully dressed and wrapped up Violet could not resist showing off the coat she was wearing and loving it so much that she wanted to take it home..

Dressing up in several layers to keep out the cold and for the fun of it.

Shannon loved this outfit to go out and play in the field. It was cold so a red hooded rain jacket over red bib pants with boots and long black rubber gloves was a perfect outfit for her. She was in her element climbing over everything and looks lovely especially when tightly hooded as well. She then put on a bright red long hooded mac over her outfit and when fully dressed continued her playtime, finishing with tightening her hood down over her face to keep the cold wind. I had a trip to the boatyard where a friend works to have a look around, so a lovely blue hooded mac and purple Hunter boots were the order of the day. The hood coming in very useful as the wind picked up as it was getting darker by the minute. For Violet it was a green Rukka mac early in the morning so having the mac buttoned, belted and hooded was an obvious choice. Along the river to an ornamental seat and posing in the doorway before wrapping the mac and hood around as tight as possible against the cold weather.
When you run out of heating oil in the cold weather my husband thought having me dressed in layers of macs would be a great idea to help to keep me warm, how could I disagree! So in a clear rain rain suit with red wellies and red rubber gloves I added a long clear hooded mac and then another over that. When these were done up and I was belted and double hooded I put on an ankle length glass clear trench mac. Then when ready I did go outdoors in the dark as 'wearing something light' in the dark is always recommended. Then finished by laying around on the sofa a lot warmer than when I started.

A brief interlude for Shannon in chest high Bullseye waders making her way into the deep water.

The weather has been very cold of late with ice and sub zero temperatures so we had to make sure the ladies were properly macked and booted. Lilith is wearing a blue hooded mac over a silver coat and with red wellies and she found the icy lake very beautiful but was not sure about how safe treading on the ice may be. Shannon is in a delightful pink pvc trench coat with black rubber boots and strolling though the big puddles in the cold and icy wind. For further protection she puts on a pink hooded mac and ties the hood very tight around her face as she continues her way through the grass.
It was a very cold winters day but Shannon was still willing to go wading in chest high Bullseye waders over her orange rain jacket. The water was very cold and it was getting dark so this trip had to be short as her waders started leaking, but another trip is on the menu and next time we will make sure the waders do not leak so she can spend more time in the lake.
Soren reckons he is the biggest yellow rainwear fan there can be, it is something he has loved since being a young man in a fishing village and did not fall in love with yellow rainwear until he saw a young lady wearing yellow oil skins and he says that was a the beginning of his love. So here is a little more for you and all other yellow rainwear fans with Elyssia is a delightful yellow mac with a lovely yellow sou'wester which is a vital ingredient of such an outfit.

Shiny black macs and boots being the order of the day. Daisy is wearing a shiny black trench mac with black shiny boots and a sou'wester to help keeping the sun off her face. Then spreading her legs when sat down before wrapping the mac around her after the sun went in. Now fully covered she looks and absolute delight. Another delightful sight is Lilith in shiny black, in a longer mac she too does up her mac around her, and adds a sou'wester before going outside yo kick about in the first frost of the year. I was wearing a long black shit against the very cold wind and puts on a long black hooded rain mac over the top as a storm was brewing and it was getting windier and colder by the minute.
After posing some pics of the ladies who have appeared in the past Jacob said he would love to see m,ore of what he called to himself 'B & B' that is Becky and Bexy who he thought were absolute stunners and was sad that when he moved a long while ago he lost all of the images her had kept. Here are some of Becky fully dressed and then revealing her bathing costume and breasts which makes it obvious why she was so popular. Bexy was a stunner as well and with a magnificent body to match and again covered or uncovered she look wonderful.

Washing hip waders in the shower with a red rain jacket and then chest waders in the bath has to be one way of doing things.

Daisy delighted to wear a clear hooded mac over her long black padded coat, she thSimon T and Royce have been asking to see more Rukka macs and Simon is asking for more red Rukka's if possible. Of course it is possible and this gives us the chance to show off these pics of Maria and Tamara that we have been sitting on for a while. These two ladies are the best of friends and delighted in each other when dressed like this. With them both in red Rukka hooded macs and red rubber wellies they could not keep their hands off each other and loved hooding each other before cuddling up to and enjoying each other some more.inks this is a perfect way to dress for here and the winter, especially with her own new black wellies. With a convenient collection of anchors to climb about on she was in her element and particularly liked it when fully dressed, hooded and wrapped up against the cold. Then with the same mac over a beautiful white coat she wanted to visit one of her favourite place just so she could climb over the cannons again. Always happy to please when it comes to times like this.
Taking a shower in a red rain jacket and hip black rubber waders. Then adding black rubber gloves and being tightly hooded is a good way of cleaning the waders and having a little fun at the same time. Then in the bath wearing heavy duty chest waders and little else I gave them a good wash and decided I should wash macs and boots like this a lot more often.

A day Out for Daisy in the cold with sometimes sun and sometimes heavy cloud but she is dressed just as she should be. In a metallic hooded mac she adored the mine outside the Maritime Museum and while showing it some affection she loved to show of her own new shiny black wellies. Looking even more stunning after she had tightened the hood around her head before she ventured out across the road in the cold wind. In a bright red hooded and belted mac, red Hunter boots and red gloves she first posed on the steps before going out into the huge puddles left behind from the recent rain. Kicking about in the puddles, she then hoods herself and after taking a seat pulls the hood down over her face and tightens it around her face as tight as possible. Then in a yellow Rukka mac she makes her way to the sea front and to the most easterly point in England where the waves were breaking close to the promenade and did only catch her off guard the once. She did have two very impressed admires when posing in front of the wind turbine and they thought she looked fabulous.
It was a cold winters day but I thought this long and lovely black and white mac with keep me warm with black leather heeled boots and black leather gloves. The mac buttons up high around my neck and with a matching hat I thought all would be good. Did not expect the big strong wind to keep blowing my hat off, but I did have a matching umbrella to help to keep the wind off me.

Violet is looking particularly stunning in a bronze retro mac with a matching rain hat as she plays around in the parks. Sphynx adds a green hooded mac over her padded coat to keep out the cold.

The ladies appearing here are simply the best, they are all beautiful and look gorgeous when dressed up like this. Here Shannon is proving this once again in a yellow plastic rain suit with a yellow plastic trench coat over the top and with yellow rubber boots and gloves. Opening the mac to show off the suit only adds to her beauty. Elyssia is in a clear hooded black spotted mac and black Hunter boots and with the mac done up and then tightly hooded she looks marvelous. Our lovely buxom Barbie looks wonderful in a gold trench mac and pink Hunter boots and when the mac is tightly belted and her hair is tucked into the collar her appearance gets better and better. Fay is wearing a blue plastic trench mac over a leather coat and has on a Covid mask for good measure. The addition of a mask like this is a very good idea to stay safe and it does look quite appealing at the same time.
Gas masks can always look very cute and appealing but do come into their own when added to a rainwear outfit of macs, boots and gloves. Milo, AJ and Ian K have all asked to see more gas masks recently so here we are and their will always be more. With a big heavy rubber outfit a black rubber mask is perfect. A blue full head Russian style mask with a blue trench mac and then fully dressed in green and tightly hooded as well for a little car cleaning and then with a hooded and belted striped mac the gas mask is just wonderful.
