Here we have our new style helmet shaped umbrellas. These umbrellas look a bit like American Football helmets, don't you think? Shield yourself from the elements with one of these quality umbrellas. These amazing helmet umbrellas have been designed with an open front for maximum visibility but deep sides and rear so you can still get your whole head and shoulders inside. A helmet umbrella is the perfect umbrella for watching football, rugby - well any outdoor spectator sport really - also great festival umbrellas - safer (the spoke tips are pointing downwards) and you can keep dry and yet still not excessively impede the view of those behind you. Helmet umbrellas - they're practical but they're also just a cool umbrella that makes a great gift.
