There’s nothing more important than packing appropriately. Checking the forecast before you leave on a vacation near or far is essential to making sure you have a good time while you’re there.

And when many travelers see rain in the cards, their hearts drop. But you don’t have to fear a little wet weather with these Hunger Original Tour Gloss Packable Rain Boots — and they just happen to be on sale right now.

To buy:, $100 (originally $150)

The boots, which are normally $150 but are only $100 right now during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, are made from a flexible rubber for easy packing and come with a drawstring bag to help keep them separate from the rest of your clothes. They’re easy to clean with just a damp cloth if they get dirty while you’re traipsing around, say, rain-slick London.

These rain boots are lightweight for comfortable walking, and they’re made from natural latex rubber, which is great for hot or humid weather (ever been caught in a summer downpour in Florida?).

The glossy back finish and buckle on top make these a classic look — pair them with tucked-in jeans and a bomber jacket for effortless style.

And you can channel your inner royal by wearing these boots as Queen Elizabeth II herself is devoted to the brand. Hunter was awarded a Royal Warrant from the Duke of Edinburgh in 1977, and another from Her Majesty the Queen in 1986.

And people who bought the boots say they’re a great way to not let a rainy day get you down (or even a snowy one for that matter).

Reviewer Judy wrote that she bought these boots after a rainstorm in New York City.

“They really do wrap up to a convenient size to place in the storage bag and travel with… Right now, I'm typically storing them upright in the storage bag (with the tops of the boots sticking out of the bag),” she wrote. “So far the boots are black and glossy after about [four] wears in lightly-sprinkling rain in NYC, without any effort on my part to clean them. Treads seem solid & substantial too.”

LAlady wrote she loved the boots, and they hold up even on a mile-long walk.

“I love looking down at my feet!” she wrote. “I also love that they are packable [because] I will definitely be taking them on the road.”

DJMB wrote the boots were lightweight and easy to fold up to take on a trip.

“They will be perfect for travel, especially for rainy days,” DJMB added. “They are comfortable and roomy, as well as cute to wear. As they are a little oversized, they are perfect to wear with the Tall Fleece Welly Boot Socks.”

Reviewer Floofy said they wear the boots even when it doesn’t rain.

“I can’t live without these boots. It never rains in San Diego but I have a few pairs and love them! I think the shine on the boots makes them a bit dressier so I don’t feel strange wearing them when there is no rain in the forecast!” they wrote. “I also go to the barn a lot and they are a must there. Worth EVERY penny!”
