Protecting your bags in Rainy Weather

The rainy season has come upon us and bag lovers are in a panic! How do you keep your bags from getting wet? While some bags are made of waterproof material, that protection may not be enough. It's time to check out possible rainy day bag solutions!

When it's raining hard and the winds are very strong, having an umbrella will not be enough. In all likelihood, your umbrella may not be able to withstand the strong winds. You and your precious handbag will end up getting drenched! I actually saw a girl in Rockwell with this dilemma. I pity her Neverfull's drenched state.

The cheapest way, of course, is to always bring a plastic bag along where you can slip your bag in when it rains. Understandably, this is not the most stylish solution.

A Multiply store called Saccessories sells bag raincoats. Here are some pictures from the website:

HOW TO GAUGE THE RAINCOAT SIZE TO BUY: Simply measure the width of the handles' base from left to right. Available in 3 sizes: Small -opening is 7 inchesMedium-opening is 8.5 inchesLarge- opening is 10.5 inches

Anyone tried this already? Let me know!

I remember that time when got caught in a downpour and had to seek shelter in Ministop. You asked for plastic bags for your precious LV instead of buying an umbrella for the two of us! HAHAHA!

@mrs. g - the umbrellas were overpriced!
