After spending all my life in Mumbai and now moving to Dubai, I miss Mumbai rains enough to even dream about them. But they say till you are not in the shoes of the person you would never know the reality of it.
If you have traveled to Mumbai during monsoons, you might find it extremely difficult to go for meetings or any activity you would like to.
Either you have been a hero and stopped betting bothered about the state of your clothes even in the rains or you have managed to be away from those horrid splashes right when you are heading for an interview.
As they show in Bollywood movies, that Mumbai rains are romantic enough to find that girl standing nearby by you and you can fall in first sight, the next thing you know you are trying to close that unmanageable umbrella and you have fallen downstairs trying to balance.
The only way I enjoyed Mumbai rains is by enjoying them the fullest that I can. The downpour, which continues for two to three days at a very timid pace, might delay your schedule and your plans. But, believe me, as I say this if you know how to enjoy the monsoon rains, you will learn to enjoy them and adapt with it.
How you can get acquainted with the city’s love story instead of cribbing about it while you are there and missing it?
Get yourself rainwear then umbrella so you can move freely around the places to experience the Mumbai city. I am telling rainwear like raincoats and not umbrella because you would also need rainwear footwear (I prefer gumboots always) and waterproof bag and mobile covers. Comprising on rainwear will result in fever, cough, and cold and I have experienced the same during the start of budding years of enjoying the rain.
Now some rainwear and raincoats have been a blessing to me and I have carried them with me to Dubai purely because I can enjoy the rains here as well (this year as blessing there has been enough)
So pick up a raincoat if you want to enjoy Mumbai rains if you want to keep yourself dry while riding on your bike on Nariman point. They have a collection of basic shades to vibrant colors to suit your personality.
The material that Wildcraft raincoats have is a strong, classy and waterproof to 5000mm. They prefer to be honest about the waterproof quality than giving wrong claims. I have always found myself completely dry even after being in rain for long hours while my friends would always complain of the splashes.
Now the most important part of any raincoat is the part where to keep the precious things than even gold? That’s our phone. The reason you need the cell phone would be clear to click the cliché monsoon rain photos in Mumbai. Now the best part of the Wildcraft raincoat is the zippered pockets are shielded with flaps which keep the cell phone dry even in extreme rains.
Now, what makes the Wildcraft’s unisex raincoat free from the water? It is the PU coated Nylon fabric which also helps in having better breathability so you don’t sweat within. Hood plays the most important part of keeping your rainproof and fever proof.
The best part is nowhere. You can pack the entire seat of Hypa Dry Unisex Rain Pro-Smart Rainwear is that it can be rolled into a small pouch when it is dry and keep it in your bag. They have an online store so they can deliver to your doorstep without you moving from your chair in the office. Go for it today 🙂
I hope this interesting tip on the right outfit for Monsoon rains help you to enjoy while it is there. So no more struggling with umbrella and asking others to help to open them.
