Umbrellas do a good—not great—job at protecting you from the rain. On windy days, they flip inside out and tug you down the street. They don't fully cover your body like a rain coat does, and in torrential downpours you still end up drenched. When presented with the evidence, it's clear that we need more than just umbrellas in our rainy day arsenal. Aside from a trusty rain coat and rain boots, you'll need to arm yourself with a rain hat. They're compact, stylish, and protect you from rain drops flying into your face. Hats, too, offer you more mobility to go hands-free so you can hold on to your bags, coffee, and phone. Plus, most rain hats can pass for regular hats, giving you more chances to show it off when the weather is bright and sunny. Ahead, our favorite head coverings that outshine all the umbrellas.
