"Rain Gear"

By Amy Stewart

"Winter is on the way, and all I care about this time of year are boots and gloves.

For long days of hardcore gardening, nothing's better than a pair of Sloggers boots or (other) boots, both of which are available in nurseries and feed stores around town. Both come in a half-calf length. They're incredibly warm and waterproof, they hug your legs to keep grime and water out and they're comfortable enough to wear for a walk in the woods or on the beach in winter. They're expensive -- 50 to 80 bucks would buy you a lot of daffodil bulbs -- but mine are well on their way to lasting a decade.

A friend in Oregon once told me that the trick to gardening in the Pacific Northwest is to ignore the rain. Don't wait for it to stop, or you'll never get anything done. Just throw on your rain gear and get outside. As I write this, the rain is pounding so hard on my roof that I can hardly hear myself think. My boots and gloves may be up to the task, but I'm not. The garden will be just fine without me until the rain stops. Until Atlas or Sloggers comes up with a full body suit, I'm staying inside."

But check out some of the latest apparel and you may discover you can upgrade your gardening wardrobe with just a few judicious finds. All the pretty needn't be in the garden. Some of the good-looks could be yours.

"Garden Wear that Mixes Fashion and Function"

Special to the Courant

"Spring is finally here, which means it's time to start dishing the dirt - literally. But before you throw on your old clothes and head out to get growing, there's something you should know. Fashionable gardeners have traded ratty sweatshirts and stained gloves for stylish "garden attire."

Visit the Sloggers Garden Outfitters website (, for example, and you'll see a full line of active wear, accessories and footwear designed exclusively with the garden in mind. Featuring such items as pants with interior kneepad pockets, multipocketed vests, sun hats and waterproof clogs in a range of spring pastels, Sloggers' apparel is designed to go from the backyard to town without a change.

Though much of the Sloggers' line is designed for women, male yardsmiths can choose from unisex pants and vests in olive or khaki, and garden clogs in olive or black."

"Slogging through new stuff"

It's time... to see how this year's crop of new gardening products fared under semi rigorous real life conditions (also known as my backyard). Here are the results, with 'Two Green Thumbs Up' being the top rating and 'Two Green Thumbs Down' being the worst:

What a great year it was to test this new line of waterproof gardening shoes and boots.
I slogged around in rubber Sloggers boots most of the season, and they were so effective and comfortable that I'll never return to soggy sneakers.
The rubber in this footwear is firm enough to hold its shape like leather, but soft and pliable enough that it doesn't feel like you're wearing recycled tires.
Two other things I liked - the ankle-height boot version that I tested was surprisingly easy to put on and take-off, and a quick hosing got rid of all traces of mud.
Sloggers come in several sizes (men's and women's) and sold at garden centers or online through
