Unbreakable Umbrellas Break Wind
New wind-resistant umbrella
Thursday, March 18, 2010 17:16 GMTDALLAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) If the wind starts howling, one tough umbrella has you covered.
A strong wind is usually the victor in a battle between Mother Nature and an umbrella, but with Windbrellas, humans and their umbrellas finally stand a chance.
The gust-busting accessories are specially-designed to handle even the strongest winds, and according to spokesperson Devin Kirk, they serve as more of a shield of armor than a regular, old umbrella.
Windbrellas are able to withstand winds of more than 50 mph because theyre made with tougher 190-count nylon. Theyre also enforced with sturdier metal rods, and are larger so they provide a greater area of protection.
Kirk says that a Windbrella can mean the difference between life and death should someone get caught in the middle of a severe storm.
Windbrellas can also protect people from robbers, since one rough swing is enough to knock a person out cold.
