As autumn  comes to blow down our hopes of late summer warmth, so too comes the cold, wet mornings. But there’s nothing wrong with a few showers so long as you are well prepared. This means the right gear to face the elements. On a trip through nature or camping that is easy to find but getting your EDC sorted from home to work is usually more challenging. You don’t want style to suffer but you need your gear to be just as tough as when you’re out in the great outdoors. We’ve put together a small guide featuring our favourite EDC for rainy days — everything from your phone case to your jacket, all to keep you warm and dry (and not like you are off for a hike).
