GustBuster Umbrella: 'Guaranteed not to flip out — even in 55 mph winds!'


From the website:

    GustBuster Umbrella

    This ingeniously engineered umbrella is a must have in windy regions like Duluth.

    Guaranteed not to flip inside out during hard gusts of wind — even up to 55 mph!

    The 2-piece canopy has a top layer of nylon that’s secured with elastic bands.

    When a gust comes up the top layer stretches releasing the wind before it blows the umbrella inside out.

    You stay dry no matter how bad the storm gets.

    Plus all the other features you’d expect from a top-quality umbrella like lightning-safe double-reinforced fiberglass construction, easy slide-style opener and classic hardwood J-handle.

    48" canopy for full coverage.

ONLY 3 feet wide? Flatterer!

Perhaps some sort of long rubber cover would do. Though buying a 3' wide 6' long condom might raise a few eyebrows at the supermarket.

I tend to agree with weasel, up there. I just now came in from attempting a walk in a gale force wind with torrential rain (don't ask) and I'd not want an umbrella resisting and blowing me all over east jesus. I just collapsed mine and ran-walked, soaked, to my car. Rain clothes are probably best. What are they called, nor'easters? Nor'westers? Sout'by sout'easters? Something. Oh yeah, raincoats.

Dunno about you, but I'm not sure I could hold onto an umbrella in a 55mph wind - nor that I'd even try.
I reckon a better solution is a brolly that turns inside out to avoid damaging both itself and the holder, but which everts gracefully later. I had such a thing once, but I left it on a bus.
