You’ll never lose your umbrella pouch again.

In response to customer feedback, we’ve added a convenient strap allowing the carrying pouch to be attached to the umbrella. The pouch has a wide opening for easy access. Reflective thread in the elastic lanyard provides extra visibility in low-light settings.

Folding umbrellas are convenient, but I worry about their strength.

Strong aluminum alloy core. Durable, 8-rib construction.

The core of the umbrella is made from a strong, warp-resistant aluminum alloy. Ditching the conventional round core, it has an elliptical polyhedron shape for extra durability. Although conventional umbrellas are typically made with only 6 ribs, we provided a full 8 ribs for a more secure feel. We’ve also removed the sharp springs to make it easier to open.

It’s hard to find a good umbrella for windy days.

New wind-ready design.

The top of the umbrella spins freely with the wind. No more struggling on gusty days. This spinning motion is especially convenient when navigating crowded streets. If you happen to bump into another umbrella, yours will gracefully rotate out of the way.
