It's Always Fair Weather

Items designed to brave the rain

By: By Anne Burke

 As we in the West wring ourselves out from last month’s deluge, right now is a great time to remind clients that spring showers are just around the corner. Clients can stay dry with this packable rain poncho, enjoy worry-free road trips with this flashing traffic cone and snuggle up next to the fire in these comfy slip-ons.

Feet First
Arcopédico Slide

It may look a little like a bedroom slipper, but it’s the comfort that counts. The folks at Magellan’s travel store tell us that this slide and its
sister slip-on are favorites among women travelers. An innersole of cork and latex supports the arch and evenly distributes body weight. Woven nylon uppers are breathable and mercifully elastic for foot-swelling flights. Various colors. $49, Magellan’s.

Shower Insurance
Magellan’s Rain Poncho

This breathable, waterproof, nylon rain poncho is big enough to keep you dry but folds into its own zippered pocket that fits easily into a pack or large purse. Khaki and black, 43½ inches long, with drawstring hood. Generous size fits over a backpack.
$45, Magellan’s.

Orange Alert!

Vehicle breakdowns are scary, especially during low-light hours. These flashing-orange cones will give clients peace of mind, whether they’re traveling across town or across the country. Opens to 16 inches high, collapsible to 2 inches thick. Uses two AAA batteries (included). $24.85, Magellan’s.
