A Whirlwind of Rain Gear
With Hurricane Earl churning its way up the East Coast of the U.S., we thought it was a good time to take a look at what is new, notable and nifty in the world of rain gear. While there probably isn't time to do any Earl-related promotions (no matter the turn-around time), it's always good to be aware of just what is out there.
These storm pants from Charles River Apparel are waterproof, windproof and breathable. They are made from HydraLyte nylon with graphite mesh and taffeta nylon.

They come with an elasticized waist with a drawstring, as well as zippered front and back pockets.
The Stormtech Packable Poncho from S&S Activewear is a poncho that packs a punch and folds into a self-fabric pouch for instant rain protection. It's made of durable 100 percent Nylon Taffeta and is wind- and water-resistant. The poncho features an adjustable hood with drawcord and button-down sides
