I normally am not afraid of rain if I have something such as a columbia men’s watertight jacket to wear. I used to avoid spending time outdoors in the past fearing that rain might make me wet and sick. It seems that this is not the case anymore. I invested heavily in some anti-rain protection and now I know that I can go outside any time I wish to do so. I need to take my dog on his walkies every day, so having a watertight jacket is a must in my case.
