F*ck The Rain Umbrella

This F*ck The Rain Umbrella was made by Art Lebedev and lets mother nature know where to stick it. It’s a real product and will set you back about $55.

Water Gun Umbrella

Oh, i want one of these! The Umbrella Water Gun, from Alexy Woolley Design, collects water in the concave top, which travels down into the water gun handle — so you never run out of ammo as long as it’s raining! Really cool!

Light Saber Umbrella

a96678_a447_lightbrellaTake the trendy and illuminating properties of a LED flashlight, mix in a light emitting multi-coloured handle, throw in the terribly useful water repelling function of an umbrella and you’ve got a hip and wacky way to brighten up a dismal day in the city. The Light Saber Umbrella is $41.

Senz Umbrella

a96678_a447_senzAlso known as “The Storm,” the Senz Umbrella has an aerodynamic design and the manufacturer claims it can withstand storms up to wind force 10.

Cloud Umbrella

This inflatable cloud-shaped Umbrella is an unique model. In order to unfold it, you just need to push and pull the air drum built in the handle. It might that you are the only one with white clouds floating over the head.

Couple Umbrella

Nubrella

Polite Umbrella

a96678_a447_politeDesigned to avoid hitting others, the Polite Umbrella is a shrinkable umbrella that enables users to morph its shape in order to reduce occupied space and to increase user maneuverability. Users can easily adjust their umbrellas anytime by pulling a handle so that they can protect themselves from harsh winds or bumping into others. (Source)

UNbrella

Ca96678_a447_fecobrollyonventional umbrellas come with a fixed surface. Although it is changeable, you cannot replace it easily. This eco-friendly design is more flexible. It is actually only a collapsible umbrella skeleton without any surface, so you can put anything such as newspapers, plastic bags or whatever you want to serve as the protecting surface. (Source)

Brelli Umbrella

Bumpbrella

The Bumpbrella is convenient in the sense that it can be inflated easily with the help of a hand pump and deflated at the pull of a handle, so it doesn’t take up too much precious space. Even if you can’t help bumping into people, you can spare them the poke in the eye. This continues to be true even in the dark, thanks to the three bright LEDs which allows you to see and be seen clearly. (Source)

Huge Japanese Umbrella

Flask Umbrella

a96678_a447_fraskThis Brigg umbrella features a Malacca cane two-piece handle with a fitted screw-in drinking flask. That’s all well and good, but this thing costs around $880! Now correct me if I’m wrong, but if you have $880 to spend on a umbrella, you also have enough money to pay for your drinks. (Source 1 | Source 2)

Umbuster Umbrella

Ufo Umbrella

a96678_a447_ufocapSure, you could wear a raincoat if you don’t feel like carrying an umbrella, but does it really keep you dry? I didn’t think so. This combination of Umbrella+Cap does that. Sadly, the Ufo Cao is Korea-only for now, but I’m pretty sure they’ll be glad to ship one to you.
