    It has a Teflon coating, so when it's wet all you have to do is give it a thorough shake and the water simply drips off – meaning no more soggy hallways! It is *slightly* on the heavy side (which is justified by the super-strong windproof structure and powerful opening mechanism), so I keep mine in the car for emergencies rather than in my bag for day-to-day drizzle.
