The weather — it's everywhere! Seriously though, with the cool temps blowing through at warp speed and flood-like rains coming quickly, you're going to need some protection from whatever the sky decides to drop on you. You could take cover in your house until spring like a hermit, or you could just grab the A.Brolly Tube, which is marketed as the world's lightest umbrella. It's on sale this Black Friday for just $18.99.
Sure, you've got the go-to umbrella you've been using since college, but let's try leveling up with the A.Brolly Tube. Not just an umbrella, this baby uses popular aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports technology to keep you warm and cozy when it's raining cats and hat stealing dogs (which, considering how terrible global warming has been to us, would be a dream comparatively). The carbon fiber ribs construction makes it 17.5 times stronger than steel, but at least five times lighter.
Speaking of the windy elements, The umbrella also features a WindBrace durable structure, which allows the ribs to bend upward when the wind is too strong. This way, you won't end up like those embarrassing businessmen just trying to get to point B from point A with a crappy, useless, overturned umbrella (you know the ones).
Need more high-tech bells and whistles? The AquaRepel nano-treated fabric repels water off in a New York minute, which is essential when the weather changes just as fast. Using this bad boy to block the sun? No sweat (literally), It also protects you from UV UPF50+, so you never have to worry about harsh rays.
The best part? This lifesaver is totally portable and comes with a super compact tube carrying case, so you and your umbrella are protected n matter where you end up.
Still not sold? There were a lot of people just like you, but they took a shot, and 245 backers pledged $13271.11 on Kickstarter to fund this handy dandy tool. They never regretted that choice for a second, and neither will you.
