It's finally spring and that means the rainy season is about to come for us commuters at full force.

Make your morning and evening commute easier with products designed for travel and unpredictable weather.

Below are nine useful items, from wind-proof umbrellas to bike lights, that every commuter needs in order to combat those impending April showers.

Spring has finally arrived and that means it's time for flowers to bloom, temperatures to rise, and birds to start chirping again.
During this time of year, we get inspired to do our spring cleaning and home renovations— but that's not all we are gearing up for.

As we settle into spring, we brace ourselves for the rainy reason — you know ... April showers bring May flowers.
Getting through a month of rain isn't so bad when you're snuggled up in bed, falling asleep to the sound of water dripping on your windowpane.
On the other hand, combating April showers while you're running late to work and trying leap through the train doors as they close is its own beast.

Make your life easier by commuting with products that are designed to keep you — and your expensive company-owned laptop — dry during a downpour.
You'll need more than just a wind-fighting umbrella to keep you from getting soaked — that's why we've pulled together the best and most practical rain gear and water-resistant products that every commuter should have.
Here are nine products you need for your rainy work commute:

A wind-defying umbrella
Amazon
Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating, available on Amazon for $23.95
Don't let your umbrella fall victim to 20-mile-per-hour winds (like mine recently did).
With this Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella you'll not only be protected from the rain, but you'll be confident that it won't turn inside out due to its nine resin-reinforced fiberglass ribs.
This umbrella is made with "Repel technology" that was designed to literally repel water and other elements so that your umbrella dries instantly.

Also, the dimensions of this umbrella are perfect for commuter travel.
When closed, the portable Repel umbrella measures just 11.5 inches in length and weighs only 15 ounces.
It also has a rubber handle and wrist strap, as well as a travel sleeve.
The Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella has all of the specs to make it perfect for commuter travel in any purse, briefcase, or backpack.
As an added bonus, Repel offers a lifetime replacement guarantee.

A commuter backpack
Everlane
The Nylon Commuter Backpack, available at Everlane for $68
Nothing is worse than when your backpack just misses the protective radius of your flimsy umbrella, causing all of your papers, gym clothes, and tech to get soaked.
Everlane made sure you never have that issue again with this
Nylon Commuter Backpack.

It's made from nylon and polyester, the combination of which is lightweight and durable On top of that, it's also water-resistant with a waterproof backing.
The zippers are bonded and taped so you never have to worry about water leaking in
The Nylon Commuter Backpack comes with eight different pockets for your keys, wallet, umbrella, etc. and a laptop compartment big enough to fit a 15-inch MacBook or equivalent.

A lightweight rain jacket
Backcountry
Basin and Range Spiro Rain Jacket (for women), available on Backcountry for $64.97
Basin and Range Spiro Rain Jacket (for men), available on Backcountry for $77.97
Spring showers can be coupled with humid and muggy weather, so it's important to have a jacket that not only keeps you dry from the rain, but keeps you dry from your own sweat (gross, but true).
Backcountry's in-house brand, Basin and Range, makes a lightweight, durable
nylon rain jacket that every commuter needs, and it's been Insider Picks tested
Thanks to its nylon shell and vented underarms, the Spiro Rain Jacket not only keeps you dry in weather as calm as a mist or as harsh as a down pour, but it also helps regulate your body temperature when you go from outside to inside to underground
On top of that, it's light and compact so it can easily fit in your backpack or purse should the rain stop half-way through your commute ... because that's the game Mother Nature likes to play.
