Sometimes, while putting on a raincoat, we get an unpleasant smell due to not being able to air dry completely from the last time used, developing mold and some other bacteria. Spring Cape has a spring steel frame running through the edge of the coat, which spreads the fabric and increases its exposure to air circulation; therefore allowing it to dry quicker and more thoroughly. Furthermore traditional raincoat doesn’t have a stationary way to fold, resulting waste too much time and space. The steel frame allows a faster way of storage, reducing the time lapse up to 3 seconds. The cap of raincoat becomes the packaging, so it doesn’t need an extra bag.
