If you’ve dropped a bundle on a beautiful bag, the last thing you’ll want to happen is watch it get destroyed in a rainstorm. So here’s the workaround: The Handbag Raincoat.

It was Invented by Morgan Sarner, who got her start in fashion at Rebecca Minkoff. The New York City resident grew tired of seeing her favorite bags damaged by rain and snow, and that was her light bulb moment. If a raincoat could keep you dry, why not make one for your bag?

The clear plastic covering basically works as a poncho for your bag. Openings for the bag handles secure it in place while also allowing you to still comfortably carry it.

It’s available in three sizes: mini, medium and large, so your entire wardrobe of handbags can stay protected from the elements. When not in use, it folds up into a small pouch, so you can always keep one on hand should the forecast take an unexpected turn for the worse.
