Umbrellas are one of the few pieces of gear that have been successfully perfected. Like koozies and cheap sunglasses, flimsy knockoffs are always given out at events or festivals. And while an umbrella is, in my opinion, an essential household item, I’ve never been fully satisfied with one. That is until I became acquainted with Weatherman. The umbrella brand has nailed the science of rain protection thanks to durable, long-lasting umbrellas that are built to withstand the bluster of a serious storm. Plus, with fast-drying technology, you can bring your umbrella inside and not worry about leaving puddles everywhere you go.
