The sun’ll come out tomorrow. In the meantime, keep 'em high and dry this soggy season with some reliable (and cheery!) raingear. Bring on the raindrops! —Marianne Wisenthal

m&s mac. If anyone knows what to wear when it’s pouring, it’s the Brits. Marks and Spencer London carries a zillion fetching options for kids, but we love the simplicity of this transparent mac with easy-to-close snaps, giant pockets and colourful piping. Tickety-boo! marksandspencerlondon.com

bogs boots. I can’t say enough good things about BOGS footwear, with my wee ones wearing these hand-me-downables through sleet, snow, rain and (yes) even shine. They have grippy soles and Max-Wick technology that, unlike most rubber boots, means they never get sweaty and stinky. And this season’s crop of prints are as peppy as ever - frogs and pansies and dots, oh my! bogsfootwear.ca

k-way packables. I’ve probably owned a K-way since I was three and now my daughter does, too. These French classics are perfectly packable, layer well over spring jackets and come in a cornucopia of colours, from moss green to hibiscus (and everything in-between). Mais oui. k-way.ca

hatley umbrella. I had no luck getting my five-year-old to hold an umbrella until she spotted this tropical bird brolly from Hatley. The Quebec-based company is pretty much the expert in keeping kids both dutifully dry and irresistibly cute at the same time. Its umbrellas are sturdy and super easy for small hands to open and close. hatley.com

hunter backpack. Sick of soggy knapsacks? So are we. Protect all and sunder with a bright, water-resistant bag from Hunter (the Royal Fam’s go-to bootmaker). These nylon beauties have velcro pockets, padded straps and, hey, if it’s good enough for George and Charlotte ... ca.hunterboots.com

aigle rain boot. Is there anything cuter than tots in galoshes? Nope. French heritage brand Aigle handcrafts its teeny boots from natural rubber meaning they’re PVC, lead, formaldehyde and phthalate free. They’re also wide enough for chubby toddler legs, lined in cotton jersey and have washable insoles. Quelle merveilleuse! minimioche.com
