Senz Storm Umbrella

By senz 

The Senz Storm Umbrella (¥5,250Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) is made to withstand the windiest of windy days. It is not only a flip-resistant umbrella for those gusty days that render so many lesser umbrellas useless, but also an umbrella for casual walks during tropical storms and Category 1 hurricanes. For proof, check out the video below of the development team racing cars and motorcycles with the Senz Storm Umbrella sticking out where it shouldn’t be.

In addition to hefty materials and expert craftsmanship, the aerodynamic shape of the umbrella canopy makes it really unique. The asymmetrical design prevents rain from drenching your backpack and extremities, while also parrying wind from all directions.

The Shiny Silver edition is a lighter, more streamlined version of the hardier original, but it still tolerates winds up to an astonishing 80km/h. That should be sufficient because let’s face it, you’re probably not going to be going for a walk to the coffee shop during a hurricane anytime soon. As long as you don’t forget it on the train, or let your “friends” borrow it, the Senz Storm Umbrella is the last umbrella you’ll ever have to buy.
