Pandana Multiplex Headwear
This colorful piece of fabric can perform a number of functions including neck gator, scarf, facemask, and earwarmer. Perfect to have along should the temperature dip or the wind starts to whip up.

Secret Sweater
This soft 3/4" sleeve half sweater hides under a coat or blazer for those times when just a little more warmth is needed. The sweater comes in its own pouch so it can easily be stowed in a tote bag when not in use.

AquaO Rainwear
This incredibly lightweight raincoat only weighs 11 ounces and comes packed in a pouch. While it takes up very little room in one's tote bag, this raincoat unfolds to reveal a knee length raincoat study enough to keep one dry in a rainstorm. This coat comes in five colors (Flame Red, Sun Yellow, Electric Blue, Khaki and Black) and ranges in size from small to XL.

Aquapac Messenger Bag
The new Stormproof Messenger Bag comes in gray and orange and designed to protect a standard 15.6-inch laptop computer. Your computer and belongings are guaranteed to be kept dry, enclosed first with a water-resistant zipper, followed by a rainproof roll-seal and Velcro closure, and finally with a Storm-flap and buckle.

TOKYObay Bean Watch
This small size watch has a museum minimalist look thanks to its graphic white hands and an hour index. The band is made of soft silicon for a comfortable fit. While this watch is not waterproof, it works well on those misty days when one needs a watch that's dressier than a waterproof sports watch.

Wallaroo Hats
These crushable and washable fabric hats offer UPF 50+ sun protection come in 42 distinct styles in neutral colors for a more polished look or brightly colored fabrics and tropical prints for those looking for a more playful look. Depending on one's preference choose from a hat made from canvas, loose weave, microfiber, cotton twill, poly-braid, and polystraw. As each hat has an internal or external drawstring, it can fit most women.

SummerSkin's Endless Summer Scarf
Upon initial glance, this item looks like a cotton skirt that can be dressed up or down. But pull out the drawstring and one finds a very versatile item that can be also worn as an infinity scarf, shoulder wrap, or an instant hood. The fabric made from 93% Bamboo viscose/7% spandex offers UPF 50+ sun protection and is sized to fit most people. Choose from pink, yellow, white, brown, black, or gray colors.
