Title: rain gear
Post by: metalmechanic on February 20, 2009, 09:02:56 am
Hello all,

Does anyone know what type material and/or waterproofing process was used to keep the soldiers dry in inclement weather?  Our last event (Sudbury Colonial Faire) was held in a monsoon.  The skirmish was fought in a downpour, proved that a musket can fire under water (2" rain in as many hours) and all were thoroughly soaked.  Any help to keep dry will be appreciated.

YOS
