April showers bring May flowers—these items will ensure you enjoy both.

DOGGONE DRY We all know a dog who won’t step a paw out onto a wet sidewalk. On those days, the Push Pushi Rainbow Line Dog Raincoat will keep your pup dry and cozy (and keep the smell of wet dog out of your apartment). The raincoat’s water-repellent nylon shell is lined with soft fleece, and an adjustable chest and belly straps ensures a comfortable fit while a button hole opening allows for a seamless connection for either a leash or harness. The umbrella-style hood is detachable, and a magnet holds it down when it’s just drizzling. The raincoat is available in a multitude of sizes, from teacup all the way to XL. Push Pushi Rainbow Line Dog Raincoat, $75 at baxterboo.com.

CLEANING KICK Keep your rain boots clean from the most stubborn mud with this hand-crafted boot brush, which comes with an accompanying hook that makes the brush easy to hang by your doorway or in the mudroom. (The brush can be hung indoors or outdoors, so long as it is sheltered from the rain.) Each brush and hook is made in the U.S.A. and crafted from sturdy iron by traditional American blacksmiths, with natural cocoa fiber bristles. With its rustic, curved handle and hand-crafted rod, the brush is as much an interior accessory as it is a functional tool. Iron Boot Brush, $98 at shopterrain.com.

03 RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY—OR STAY The Cleverhood is in essence a high-performance rain poncho. Waterproof, durable, and made in the U.S.A., it’s a rain cape that will protect you from the elements whether you’re walking the dog, riding a bike, or just on a quick jaunt to grab your morning latte. With its thoughtful design, the Cleverhood is the antithesis of a disposable drug store poncho. What sets the Cleverhood apart is its top-notch manufacturing and elevated attention to detail: it is seam-sealed with a lightweight, talc-finished membrane, and features reflective 3PM piping, elastic thumb loops, and a hood that is fitted to optimize peripheral vision. The Cleverhood is available in a variety of styles, from corduroy to gingham to camouflage, and more. Cleverhood Rain Cape, $249 at cleverhood.com.

04 ON THE DOT One way to ruin your morning? Run to the train (jump over puddles, trudge through spring slush) only to miss your train by a millisecond. Well, the NYC Train Sign is here to change that, once and for all. Hand-crafted in Bushwick, the sign uses Raspberry Pi, a micro-computer, an LED matrix, and a 3D printed base to display real-time public data. You can customize your sign to display the station or train line of your choice, so the train sign can move with you. The train sign currently serves 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, L, M, N, Q, R, W lines, and you can also display personalized text or weather information. Inwood Train Sign, $499 at nyc.trainsign.com.
