Rainshader-The helmet umbrella,on a windy day it can’t blow inside out .
The traditional umbrella turned inside out
on a windy day but the Rainshader didn’t turn inside out and it could be used to sheild person face from the wind and can’t poke people in the face while walking down the crowdy street.
It protects users from wind and rain without obstructing their view.
The Rainshader has fibre glass spokes covered by a customisable polyester canopy with a black aluminium shaft and rubber grip handle.

The Rainshader costs about £24.99 but the company insists it will last longer than normal umbrellas.
