Rains Coat in Shiny Grass
This raincoat’s trimly cut shape falls just above the knee and features two welt pockets, adjustable cuffs, and a drawstring hood. $140,

Freeman F.C.O. Jacket
Handmade in Seattle, Freeman’s new F.C.O. jacket employs an organic, ripstop waxed-cotton fabric from Scotland that’s quiet and comfortable, with an extended hood brim and high zipper to seal out mist and slanted rain. The brand’s first unlined raincoat packs light. $265,

Hunter Rockpool Camo Chelsea Rain Boots
The fun Hunter Rockpool Camo Chelsea has a 360-degree rand to protect feet, a curved back to help hold down heels, and a striated outsole for superior grip. $98,

Muck Boot Company Chelsea Rain Boots
Muck Boot Company’s Chelsea keeps feet dry with an oiled leather upper that patinas with age. The boot’s blocked outsole enhances traction, while an interior Achilles lock prevents your foot from sliding around. $155,

Filson Shelter Cloth Dog Coat
Filson’s dog coat repels water and keeps best friends comfortable with a virgin wool lining and suede moleskin around the neck. Reverse it  for a high-visibility buffalo plaid. $95,
