If you're in Sydney, you'll know why I'm posting this article today. How's the weather - talk about batten down the hatches!!!
If you're on the hunt for an umbrella that not only keeps you dry, but won't turn inside out in the wild weather..... look no further. I've had my eyes on Blunt umbrellas for over a year now. If you've never heard of them - make sure you continue to read!!
Blunt umbrellas are a New Zealand company which have totally revolutionised the umbrella design! I think of them like the Bugaboo of umbrellas - perfectly designed. There's no chance of the fabric tearing, and no sharp edges through their patented BLUNT tip design. Blunt umbrellas also perform better and last longer thanks to its RADIAL TENSIONING SYSTEM.
The combination of their BLUNT tip and RADIAL TENSIONING SYSTEM redirects, transfers and distributes the effort used in opening the umbrella throughout the entire canopy surface, creating a strong, aerodynamic umbrella with no sharp points. It also withstands the strongest winds, up to 117km/hour.
Blunt umbrellas are not only structurally secure but fashion focused too! The canopy design is available in a range of models and colours, including:
- Mint Orange
The umbrellas are quick-drying, lightweight and also provide the ultimate sun protection.
The canopy is HAND-CUT from BLUNTscreen, which blocks 99.99% of the sunlight reaching its surface and more than 99% of the ultra-violet light. This umbrella is also coated with e-Dry, one of the most advanced and hardest wearing water repellents on the planet.
The BLUNT LITE + is less than 0.5kg - yip, it's like a feather in my hand.
The model I'm holding in the pics is $79 - a damn good price point for the quality and design. Also the ideal pressie too!
