Bad Weather Reenacting Clothes

I realized a week or so ago that many new reenactors do not know how to handle bad weather. To me, having the right clothes is of utmost importance for two reasons:

  1. An event is more fun when you’re comfortable
  2. Authenticity and public education

Surprisingly, the two are not mutually exclusive. In fact, often the authentic clothing is just as, if not more, comfortable than modern clothing in bad weather. Below is a list of items that can be acquired or made to make your experience more enjoyable in all sorts of weather.

Rain
