Can't Leave Well Enough Alone: Umbrellas Get Weirder (And Better?) By The Minute
March 10, 2008
The rain has an uncanny ability to rear its ugly head every time you're either having an exceptionally good hair day (that is before you step outside) or you have an exceptionally hot date in which that good hair day would undoubtedly come in handy. With the torrential downpour that pervaded my fair city this past weekend, I decided to go on the hunt for umbrellas that would rise to the occasion and protect me from looking like a wet dog whenever it rains. Below are my top picks for the quirkiest – yet most efficient – umbrellas out there today.
When we first discovered the Nubrella, this bizarre invention freaked us out quite a bit. But like your eccentric third cousin, after some initial awkwardness, the little guy kind of grew on us. And if you can stomach the weird glances from passersby, this no-hands umbrella might become your new best rain companion.
The Earth conscious might enjoy the Brelli – a 100% biodegradable umbrella that's both fashionable and eco-trendy.
The GustBuster is the mother of all umbrellas. It's packed with more amenities than a small car, and is sure to shield you sufficiently in the soggiest of occasions.
