Get The Best Umbrella Out There by Jessica Hodges
Here in New York, it rains a ton! I’m not used to this weather. You either need a hood or an umbrella almost everyday. Sadly I own a cheap umbrella from the Pay Half two doors down (one of those ones that doesn’t really curve down, it’s just kind of flat and when the wind catches it you are in big trouble) but I dream of having one of these beautiful and/or ridiculous umbrellas below.Help me pick which one I should buy. And if you say UFO Cap you have to pick again.
Option 1: The Light Saber Umbrella
Useful at night and will brighten up those gray, rainy days. Just don’t feel tempted to use it as a real light saber.
This is the easiest way to humiliate your self in public. This will make you look 50x dumber than one of those umbrella hats. The author of the article said how interesting it would be to watch someone try and itch their face. Like when dogs try to scratch themselves with one of those cones around their heads.
I don’t even know what to say about these. It’s hard enough to walk in high heels by themselves. I can’t image adding something else to the struggle.
Option #3: Nubrella
Yeah it keeps out rain, snow, wet, cold and all that but it makes you look like you have a fish bowl on your head. But if you don’t care about looks at all it’s hands free and it will keep your top half nice and cozy!
Option #4 Senz Stealth Umbrella
So the story of my life is the umbrella that blows inside out. I feel like I always look like an idiot trying to control an umbrella that is dragging me all over the place. This is supposed to stop that nonsense..it doesn’t look as cute though.
Option #5 The Pileus Umbrella
Wow an umbrella with a built in camera? What could be cooler??
Option #6 Umbrella Head
PS these have never been cool.
Option #7 The Twilight Umbrella
Gray skies no more. Make your own pretty stars..probably looks really cool in pics.
Option #8 Smokers Umbrella (gross)
Don’t worry. This isn’t a real option.
Option #9 The iBrella
I’m not always for the iPod combo but this one is hilarious. “This umbrella lets you play your iPod simply by opening and closing it. To randomize song playback, shake the umbrella wildly; volume is controlled by jabbing the umbrella in the air. The iBrella consists of “a pic microcontroller, a 2-axis accelerometer, hall-effect sensors, and a gyroscope.” You could injure a lot of people during your walk to work.
Option #10 Ballbrella
Yeah not a real option for me. I have played golf a few times and had my ball go in the water. I’m pretty sure it was more in the middle so this wouldn’t be so helpful for me, but it’s a fun thought.
Option #11 My Day Umbrella
Pick from 6 different images + music! This I would sincerely like to have.
Option #12 The Forecast
Oooh is it going to rain? You can tell by the glow of the handle.
So after you have lots of cool umbrellas, you’re probably going to need an umbrella stand. We have lots of coat racks with umbrella stands on our site! Check them out. Oh and enjoy the rain (as much as you can.)
