We are far enough from the equator to enjoy cool weather during parts of the year, but close enough to the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_of_Fire" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Ring of Fire</a> to be burned in its wake. We've been battered by heat waves, storms, floods, and earthquakes in our recent past, and the writing on the wall is that we're in for much worse. Today, July 30th, our country prepares for the inevitable Big One as we conduct a metro-wide earthquake drill. <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Pacific_typhoon_season#Season_effects" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Six big storms have hit the country in the past seven months</a>, and every day the weather is becoming increasingly unpredictable.</p><figure><img class="fr-fin" data-fr-image-preview="false" alt="Image title" src="http://cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-07-30/155ba626352f9d.png" width="100%"><h5 style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.nnvl.noaa.gov/MediaDetail2.php?MediaID=1721&amp;MediaTypeID=1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Recent tropical storm formations in the Pacific Ocean.

In this very real and personal edition of <a href="http://everydaycarry.com/tagged/carry_smarter" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Carry Smarter</a>, I take a hard look at my everyday carry and determine the features and adjustments I've had to make to address both the increasingly harsh climate and ill-equipped infrastructure of my city. My hope is that you’ll discover what you need to know to better choose gear you can depend on, no matter the weather or situation.</p><h3>The 3 Main Qualities of a Weatherproof Carry</h3><p>I had to take a hard look at the quality of my carry both inside and out. For example, a watch may be made of rustproof and waterproof materials, but if not reliably sealed, it will be rendered useless caught out in the rain. Similarly, a knife may be made of the hardest and sharpest steels on the market, but rusted out it's neither safe nor useful. I considered the following features when thinking about how to adjust my kit to better brave the storms:</p><ol><li><p><strong>Water Resistance:</strong> To be truly secure against the weather, your equipment must be protected against its most abundant and pervasive resource — water. They should be sealed against moisture and liquid entry, resistant to its chemical reactions, and able to&nbsp;survive extended exposure against it&nbsp;(especially important given how much of it we get in typhoon season).</p></li><li><p><strong>Enduring quality:</strong> As important build quality is to a product, even more crucial is how it retains that quality under and after duress. Will your flashlight still turn on after nosediving into the dirt, or will your phone stand up to dust kicked up by the wind? And if they do, can they continue that performance day in and day out?</p></li><li><p><strong>Internal Protection:</strong>&nbsp;External durability doesn't mean much if it can't sufficiently protect a product's core function. Unprotected, unsealed, non-padded, and ineffective construction will render your tools to trinkets with even light use.</p></li></ol><p>Below are ideas for EDC-worthy essentials that meet these criteria. These aren't necessarily for the hardcore survivalist, but they do possess reliable features to get you through constant bad weather. Also important is that they're both readily available to pick up as well as suitable for your daily carry, such as&nbsp;if you have to commute for hours in a downpour like I often do. Simply put, they're among the best weatherproof tools you can actually&nbsp;get your hands on without investing a fortune.</p><h3>8 Essentials Built to Brave a Storm</h3><figure><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0017UZJ9Y/?tag=bg999-20" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-07-30/155ba3655a3d0b.jpg" class="fr-fin" width="100%"></a></figure><p><strong>Spyderco Salt I</strong></p><p>The <a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0017UZJ9Y/?tag=bg999-20" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salt I</a> is based on Spyderco's venerated Delica design and features one of the most unique steels on the market. Japanese H-1 steel does not rust. That fact alone already makes the knife a strong contender for any outdoor activity, but in our rain-soaked metro in particular, that quality is priceless. Add in EDC-friendly specs, price, and build pedigree, and the Salt I is the easiest pick for this list.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0017UZJ9Y/?tag=bg999-20" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BUY ($69)</a></p><figure><a href="http://flashlight.nitecore.com/product/ef1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-07-30/155ba36034acaf.jpg" class="fr-fin" width="100%"></a></figure><p><strong>Nitecore EF1 </strong></p><p><a href="http://flashlight.nitecore.com/product/ef1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Nitecore's newest flashlight</a> may be overkill for this list, but it's a good example of the type of build quality to aim for. Designed for the most dangerous applications, it achieves explosion-proof tolerances with a body thickness of 3mm (thicker than most lights on the market) and a 10mm-thick epoxy resin optical lens to protect its emitter. It pushes out 830 lumens on either 1 x 18650 or 2 x CR123A cells, and uses an efficient single-action sliding switch for ease of use even while gloved. In the face of calamity,&nbsp;the EF1 is the light that lives to tell the tale.</p><p><a class="btn btn-primary" href="http://flashlight.nitecore.com/product/ef1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Learn More</a></p><figure><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DQYXKMM/?tag=bg999-20" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://cdn.everydaycarry.com/uploads/15-07-30/155ba366d350f3.jpg" class="fr-fin" width="100%"></a></figure><p><strong>Columbia Watertight II Rain Jacket</strong></p><p>Heavy jackets like parkas and windbreakers aren't <em>de rigueur</em> in a tropical country such as ours, but the ever-present chance of rain and floods means staying dry is still a priority.
