The Handbag Raincoat


Ever been caught in the rain with your favourite handbag? I have! Now you may think this is crazy, or you may think this is genius. If you are a handbag obsessive like me then you will probably think it is the best thing since sliced bread. Let me introduce you to the handbag raincoat - it does exactly what is says on the tin (well, box) and is effectively a teeny tiny little poncho for your handbag. I know, I know, seems weird...but hear me out.

Living in London means it rains, a lot, and on many occasions I have been caught in the heaviest downpour whilst at work or out and about. Now my bags are my babies, and I will do anything to protect them in the rain, even if it means sacrificing my own dryness so that my bag can have the majority of the umbrella. I've even carried my handbag home in a Sainsbury's carrier bag before during a torrential downpour just to avoid it getting wet! I have a reputation of being a little bit crazy when it comes to the welfare of my bags.


So when I discovered The Handbag Raincoat I was like duh why has no one ever thought of this before! It comes in 3 sizes - small, medium and large and closes with velcro at the top which means it's suitable for lots of different handle shapes and sizes. I bought the small as the majority of my bags are on the small side. The bag in the photos is my Victoria Beckham Quincy which is a perfect fit. It folds up into a little waterproof pouch so you can carry it in your bag at all times in case of an impending shower.


Unfortunately you can't buy this amazing invention in the UK yet so I bought mine from America and the shipping was ridiculously quick - I ordered it on Friday night and it was delivered Monday morning! If you want to find out more then check out the company's website here, and if you're interested in buying one I bought mine from Shop Bop. It was £27 including shipping which might seem a bit steep, but hey it's better than ruining an expensive handbag in the rain!

What do you think of the handbag raincoat? Would you buy one?

    1. Yeah the bag in the photo doesn't have a zip closure so the raincoat is perfect for it as whenever it would rain all the stuff inside would get wet :( x
