You just never know when a rainy day is going to sneak up on you. Bogus weather reports can say it’s a 30% chance, so you risk going out without an umbrella and boom, absolute downpour while you’re half-way to your destination. Toting around one of those long umbrellas is annoying, and while the small ones are useful, it takes an uncomfortable minute of slogging through the rain to get it fully opened.
If you want to instantly escape the pitter-pat of raindrops, then the World’s Smallest Automatic Umbrella will be your saving grace. Measuring at only 8” when closed, it will instantaneously deploy a 40” diameter covering that will protect your head and torso from water with the simple press of a button. Whenever the rain clears up, press the button once more, and it will collapse the canopy. The frame is made of steel, the covering is 00- denier polyester, and the nub is plastic. You can keep this $30 umbrella in your bag so your can never be caught unawares.
