Fashion Friday: Shield Yourself from the Rain

L321_mgntgreyblackverryberry_model_3qNo need to sing the song, “Rain, Rain, Go Away!” when you are equipped with rain gear from Summit Group! An umbrella is an obvious choice, but what about some essentials like a coat and non-essentials such as a backpack and blanket?  Just because you don’t need these items in the rain, doesn’t mean you aren’t carrying them and want to keep your items dry!

J321_magnetgreyblackchargegreen_model_side_012014There are so many waterproof jackets on the market, but I think Port Authority’s ® Ladies and Men’s Colorblock 3-in-1 Jacket provides the best value for your money.  With a quilted zip-in liner jacket, this water-resistant Colorblock 3-in-1 Jacket quickly adapts to the elements in the mountains or around the neighborhood, so you can wear it virtually anywhere. Simply zip the shell jacket and liner jacket together for maximum protection or wear either piece alone as conditions dictate.


423009_greyblack_proppedTo go along with the theme of wearing certain outerwear in all elements of weather, there is a bag we recently introduced which fits that mold.  All Elements Pack by Ogio® is ready for everything, from sprinkles of rain to a deluge.  The bag employs a roll-top design to keep the water out and also features the following:


  • 420D nylon with TPU film laminate
  • Waterproof main compartment with roll-top construction
  • Easy-access removable laptop/tablet organization sleeves
  • Removable high visibility liner
  • Organization panel with two zippered pockets
  • Quick-access, water-resistant front zippered stash pocket
  • Ultra-padded air mesh back with Air Flow System
  • Off-center removable hip belt
  • Dual Density shoulder straps
  • Two-way adjustable sternum strap
  • Strap containment system to ensure all straps are secured423009_greyblack_front


    The final item I’d like to highlight is a waterproof blanket, which everyone could use!  Perhaps you won’t be enjoying a picnic this winter or sitting on the lawn during a concert, but you could certainly use one of these blankets while tailgating or wrap it around you for extra warmth at a game. It’s also a great item to hold on to for warmer days when you will be sitting outside again!  This Fleece and Poly Travel Blanket comes with an elastic band to roll the blanket up, making it easy to tote around wherever you go. 

    Of course we don’t want you to be stuck in adverse weather conditions, but if you are, at least you’ll be prepared with rain gear from Summit!  If you’d like more information on these items, or other ideas, please contact your Account Executive or send an email to
