I am not an umbrella carrier, the fact that I lost the only one I had is besides the point….. so this is what I wear to keep as dry as I can on days that pour in my fair city of Vancouver.
Start with a staple waterproof or water resistant coat, look for one with a high collar or hood so you can bypass on a scarf. It’s also important for those who wear glasses to don a wide brimmed hat to stop pesky raindrops from landing on specs. Over my pants a skirt and high socks to soak up some of that rain and rubber shoes to keep toes dry. Unfortunately these shoes gave me a few wicked blisters today, so I should toss them out straight away.
This close up on my jacket may give a better idea of just how wet it was out!
McKinley Water Resistant Coat; great for concerts, camping and rainy days. Winners Angora Hat and Rain Shoes.
Do you go without an umbrella on rainy days?
