As exciting as spring can be you know it’s going to rain. There’s nothing wrong with a few showers as long as you’re prepared. The right gear to face the elements on a hike or camping trip is easy but getting your kit sorted to carry you from home to work is sometimes more challenging. You don’t want style to suffer but you need your gear to be just as tough as when you’re strictly in the outdoors. We’ve put together the ultimate commuter EDC for rainy days — everything from your phone case to your watch and backpack, all to keep you dry without missing a beat on style.

Nixon Regulus Watch

Nixon’s Regulus is a tough, super functional chronograph watch made to withstand whatever you throw at it — so it most assuredly will stand up to any rough, rainy commute. Designed with input from current and former U.S. Special Operations personnel, the high-functioning and element-proof watch was made with purpose and no excess. It’s both shockproof and water resistant up to 100 meters and made from durable, fiber-reinforced TR90. An adjustable LED backlight will let you choose your optimal brightness depending on how dark and dreary it might get and the hefty battery life will last you five years.
