Rain is capable of ruining anyone’s day, even if you aren’t traveling. When you are traveling, it can feel malicious.


There are plenty of ways to deal with pernicious precipitation, whether at home or traveling.


The Rainrap is a hands-free poncho that keeps wearers dry and warm wherever they might be. It comes in reversible, button-down stylings, is machine washable and one size fits most. The poncho’s waterproof nature makes it, as its name implies, the perfect candidate to combat inclement weather.


There are two other varieties of the wrap as well. The first, Winter Rap, is, as its name implies, a waterproof covering to repel the cold rain and snow of the winter months. The outer side repels precipitation, while the inside is flannel-like.


Finally, Spirit Rap is designed for die-hard fans who are going to make sure they see their teams play, no matter what. These are designed in popular sports team colors so it is easy to show off team pride, no matter the weather.


Rainraps are readily available, too. You can find them on, at and in local boutique shops everywhere.


One Rainrap from the manufacturer’s website costs $65.
