Columbia Jacket with Hood and Fleece Lining

Gear Review

Columbia Jacket with Hood and Fleece lining

For the fall and winter I prefer my Columbia brand jacket with hood and fleece lining. The jacket is very weather resistant and stands up to snow as well as rain. The hood, wrist area and bottom seam all have adjustable pulls or Velcro to ensure that the wind and the rain remain on the outside of the jacket.

Totes Rain Slicker

Totes Rain Slicker


I also travel with a Totes brand rain slicker. They come in several colors, but since I like to stand out, I chose the bright yellow with a hood and an acetate lining of lemons. This jacket is more for a spring or summer rain. There are ventilation holes in the armpit area to help ensure that you do not have the sauna effect that is common in some rain gear.

Automatic Umbrella by Totes

Gear Review

By Gina B. Fairchild

Totes Automatic Umbrella

The rainy day item I can’t live without is the Totes brand automatic umbrella with the auto up AND down option. There is nothing worse than trying to quickly get into a car or through a doorway while you’re struggling with a manual umbrella that takes two hands and still doesn’t want to close. The ability of the umbrella to collapse at the touch of a button helps get into a dry area and stay  dry without fighting to close your umbrella. This model comes in several sizes and colors to meet your individual needs. They are also small enough to carry easily in a purse or backpack.
