Rain cover or galmo composed of oiled paper folded into a v-shape with accordion folds on either side. The closed pointed end is wrapped with a small piece of oiled paper, and tied with fibre. A length of twisted cord runs from the tip, through the centre of the folded paper, and out the open end. It is tied together to form a loop, with several smaller loops within. The paper opens like an umbrella, and is cone-shaped when open.
