This innovative umbrella will keep you from getting soaked in a storm
Umbrellas are a lifesaver most of the time, but carrying them around all day can be a huge pain. They're bulky, sometimes soaking wet, and kind of unwieldy, especially if you have things to carry like a backpack, purse, or stroller. The SwissTek Double Layer Smart Umbrella aims to make your life easier by allowing you to use your hands while it protects you — rain or shine.
This windproof model from SwissTek is kind of an engineering marvel. It opens from the top rather than the bottom which means it's easier to open, close, and store. The C-shaped grip also goes around your wrist so you don't need to hang on to it while you use it. It also drains super fast because of its unique design so no more getting water everywhere when you get to a dry area and have to close your umbrella (and no dripping when it's shut).
A 2-pack of SwissTek Double Layer Smart Umbrella usually retails for about $140, but readers can get one on sale today for 76% off – that means you only pay $16.50 for a well-designed umbrella.
