I'm making three kids raincoats: two of the modkids pattern, and one TBD for a boy. The pattern says it can be reversible but the idea of using laminate inside and doesnt appeal to me. Here's a link since my image isn't showing up
Modkids.

Anyway I would love any suggestions. I have no interest in lining it for warmth. I'm more concerned with sliding little arms in and out and durability. The last two purchased raincoats had shredded sleeves in a matter of weeks. I have a coupon for fabric.com burning a hole in my pocket...

I have fond memories of coats lined in fun fabrics..how about a poly charmeuse in a bright, bright print?? or a ctoon quilting cotton. I always loved when the lining was a wilder version of the fabric on the outside of the garment.

I'm afraid the quilting cotton wouldn't be slickery enough. I'd like to do something fun tho...

So what will hold up, not shred, and yet be slickery?
