If it isn’t already obvious, it’s a good idea to pack a small umbrella—one that fits in your camera bag—whenever you travel. I use an inexpensive ($16) Totes Raines collapsible umbrella that folds down to 7 x 1 3/4-inches for stuffing into camera back, messenger bag or even cargo pocket in your pants or shorts

Travel tip: To keep my camera dry when I’m shooting in the rain, I always bring along a protective cover that hotels provide for free but for some reason are always labeled “shower cap.” Something more dependable, rugged and almost as affordable is OP/TECH’s 8-inch Small Rain Sleeve, that costs $8.25 for two of’em.
