Rain Check

When it comes to staying dry, it's only polite to be blunt. Designed with rounded edges that eliminate sharp run-ins with passersby and a radial tension system that makes for easy handling in strong weather, this high-tech umbrella helps you take on rainy days with grace. Its thoughtful design stands up to Force 12 winds (the maximum in wind tunnel tests) with a low profile and tensioned canopy that defies tearing and resists flipping inside out. Engineered to be aerodynamic and durable, the Blunt Umbrella's lightweight, polycarbonate canopy is designed to stay strong and taut after years of stormy weather.

Aluminum frame. Polycarbonate and pongee polyester canopy. Made in China.

    Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

    I love this Blunt Umbrella! When the company said it could withstand 70mph winds, they weren't kidding! We have strong gusts of wind in the Seattle area, plus it rains buckets, and this umbrella handles both with ease. Very glad I made this purchase!

    Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

    Got this for my father who works in NYC. While clearly would be very effective and strong against storms and bad weather, he and all of his work colleagues found it very challenging (exhausting) to open. Don't know if that was just ours or if it is a more universal issue. Very good otherwise.

    GOOD UMBRELLA

    Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

    I have yet to use this in a real windy situation but it seems very well suited for the rain. Some may be better off with the larger size as this one seems more appropriate for a smaller/leaner person.

        Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

        This umbrella is awesome, I received one as a holiday gift from my friend and rarely did I use umbrellas before however over this last week in San Francisco I got to use and it was great. I love the smooth edges when walking down the street and it handles the wind incredibly well. Definitely a quality product if your on the look out for an umbrella.

          Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

          Very sturdy and well-made but has one fatal flaw: material it's made out of has a nasty chemical smell. Gave me an instant headache every time I went near it. Had to return even though I didn't want to.

          Comments about BLUNT UMBRELLA:

          This umbrella is well thought out and the quality is excellent. I've used it a few times and even in windy conditions I haven't had any problems. The only flaws this umbrella has isn't noticeable unless it's closed. The t-shaped tips don't fold as compact as they can unless you do it manually and the close strap could be placed better to give it a neater appearance. These flaws won't be a problem for most people but the umbrella would be absolutely perfect if they were addressed.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was very fast, I think it arrived in a day or two. The box this umbrella shipped in was huge. The cardboard tube it comes in was bent in the middle and one of the plastic caps was cracked. The umbrella itself was in good condition.
