WeatherWear: Raincatch Water Purification Raincoat


Some among us predict shortages of clean drinking water on the planet Earth in the not-so-distant future. The Raincatch, designed by CIID students Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble, is a raincoat that collects and purifies rain water. The collar of the coat captures the rain which is then passed through charcoal filters and a chemical purification system. Voila, drinkable water, which is stored around the shoulders and pockets of the coat.
