It is undeniable that some of the world’s most exciting cities to visit can sometimes be subjected to some unpredictable weather – London, Paris, and of course New York. Great cities, not so great weather.
The important thing is not to let a little rain interrupt your exploration of the city or from pursuing your plans for the day. In this article we take a look at three top tips to help you maximise your city adventures even on rainy days.
The Rainmap Umbrella
When the rain starts to fall I never seem to have enough hands to juggle an umbrella, a map, my phone, or my camera. The Rainmap umbrella is such an obvious solution it’s a wonder that no one has thought of it before! Combining those two essential items for your city adventure – an umbrella and a map.
The Freecut Raincoat
This is a great product from Japanese lifestyle brand Muji. It’s inexpensive, practical, and not completely without style. It’s called Freecut because you can cut the sleeve and hem of the coat to suit your size and enhance the fit. It folds into a small pouch and has a removable hood. Super-handy to have tucked into your bag in case of sudden downpours.
The Rapha Backpack
Cycling brand Rapha have a great range of products, but I’m particularly in love with their waterproof backpack. You don’t have to be a keen cyclist to benefit from the stylish design and functionality of this backpack – keeping all of your essentials dry no matter what the weather.
March the band out, beat the drum, with these top tips up your sleeve no one is going to rain on your parade – whichever city you find yourself in!
