Not sure if you’ve looked outside lately, but it’s getting rainy. And if last year’s raincoat looks a little worse for wear, it’s time to kit up in some fresh rain gear.

Who better to design something to withstand the rain than a company with roots on the West Coast?

Here are some of the best rain gear companies with a Vancouver connection to keep you dry this fall:
