Raincatch: A Jacket that Collects and Purifies Rain Water

It may never rain enough (or be cool enough) to wear a raincatch in Phoenix. 

The oversized, tubed rain coat is the brainchild of Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design students, Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble. 

When worn correctly (and when it's actually raining outside), the jacket collects, purifies, and stores rain water the wearer can drink through a series of exposed tubes. 

The design is currently a prototype, but you can see it in action in the video below. 
And while hydration has certainly seen more fashionable days, there's nothing like not having to take a water break after jumping in a few puddles. 

Happy rainy weekend.
