Product Review: Däv Rain Products

Dav AboutProduct: Däv rain gear;  including umbrellas, boots, shoes, sneakers, handbags and socks for women and children.

As Seen In: Vogue, Redbook, Style, Everyday With Rachel Ray and more.

Company’s Claim:  Däv product’s aim to offer hip and sophisticated rain apparel using special materials such as a stretch panels and a comfortable PORON® footbed to create a fashionable ensemble durable enough for anything the weather throws at you.

Fashion Quotient:  With a dazzling array of boots and shoes to choose from, Däv has every fashion personality covered.  From downtown trendsetters to the sassy-cowgirl—including your little fashion-bug-in-training—you’re sure to find something to suit your fancy.

Däv offers really unique umbrella’s to coordinate with your boots as well.

Quality:  Däv sent me a pair of Karma Victoria rain boots and a Starburst umbrella similar to the one above in cream/black to review.  I think the quality  of the products is excellent.  The umbrella is large, has a sturdy handle and features a spring-loaded button so that it will pop open on command.   For $30, I thought the Däv umbrella was definitely worth the price.  I recently purchased an umbrella from Target for $15 which broke after just 3 uses.

The boots are constructed with durable materials and were quite warm and comfortable when I wore them.  I would also say that the sizing it true-to-size.  Further, the boots came with a black nylon backpack to store them in.Dav flats

Con’s:  Really I didn’t feel that there were any cons. 

Bottom Line:  Däv offers a wide variety of stylish rain gear at a broad range of prices.  If the $90 rain boots are out of your budget, you can opt for an adorable pair of leopard print ballerina flats like these for only $29.99.  

All I can say is, I can’t wait for the next rainy day.
