When comes into Spring shower season, umbrella becomes something you need to carry around. In most times, a small fold-able umbrella is ideal since you can easily put it in your bag when not in use and don’t need to worry about losing it. However, most of those small umbrellas have a problem – they preform pretty badly in winds. Maybe many of you have the same experience as me, having an flipped umbrella in windy day. It isn’t nice at all.
Thanks to the designer behind the Hedgehog Umbrella, now we have a small yet strong umbrella can withstand gale force winds over 70 mph. Hedgehog was created by automotive engineers, who have designed cars emphasizing performance and reliability and wanted to do the same with umbrellas, which historically break often. A core feature is the patent pending WindFlex system, which is inspired by the automotive suspension system that allows the umbrella to withstand gale force winds over 70 mph.
With a price tag over 100 CAD (buy here), this umbrella isn’t quite cheap. However, if you were frustrated by the endless cycle of broken umbrella after broken umbrella, this might be a worthy investment. Features include:
- A fully carbon fiber frame architecture that is 10 times stronger than next best competitor
- A patent-pending WindFlex suspension system that can divert incoming winds and prevent the umbrella from flipping inside out and able to withstand winds of over 70 mph (Hurricane Category 1 windspeed)
- The first umbrella with fully interchangeable canopy capabilities
- An integrated outer enclosure design for loss prevention
Last but not least, this 15oz weight umbrella has Lifetime Manufacturer guarantee! So instead of weak and disposable umbrellas, why not consider a lifetime umbrella?
