Today On Better TV: Stay Dry With Practical, Pretty Rain Gear
October 30, 2008
Rain can put a serious damper (ha?) on a morning commute or a Sunday shopping trip. Today on Better TV, we show you how to stay prepared for a sudden downpour with some stellar rain gear.
For Your Feet
The Shuella ($50) – which comes in four colors – is like a raincoat for your shoes. These Velcro-on shoe covers come with a drying cloth and a carrying case, so you can stash them in your bag when you go inside.
Both these London Fog Wales ($130) and the Aquatalia for Marvin K. Varsity boots ($498) are quintessential Rain Boots That Don’t Look Like Rain Boots – chic enough to wear all day long, even in sunny weather.
The Umbrella for Two ($44.50) is enough umbrella to cover two people, with just one handle – perfect for couples or parents walking with a child.
If you want to make sure your head and shoulders stay bone dry, the Nubrella ($50) is the product to try; the clear domed umbrella covers all angles, and you can even use it hands-free.
Protect Your Purse
If you’re carrying a suede handbag on an overcast day, throw a Rain Couture bag ($69-$85) inside. It folds into a little pouch that will fit in any decent-sized day bag, and opens into a waterproof handbag cover.
