Spring has sprung. It’s time to ditch your winter coat, say goodbye to all those pockets, and get back outside. While the warmer weather is a welcome change of pace, it’s not always sunshine. Spring usually means rain, so it’s important that your EDC gear has some level of water resistance.

In this loadout we’ve curated with help from our friends at Huckberry, you can find some weatherproof gear and hi-vis essentials to cover your bases in style this Spring.

Lastly, a rubber strap keeps it comfortable even when wet.
