The Warwick Dark Blue Windproof Walking Umbrella
Take a look at this windproof umbrella. When something this special comes along it can cause quite a stir up here in Umbrella Heaven. And that’s exactly what happened when we discovered the Warwick range. This is one of those wind resistant umbrellas you have to see and feel for yourself to really appreciate it.
Apart from the colour of the canopy, the first thing you notice about this windproof umbrella is the smooth, lacquered, laminated wooden handle. It also sports a wooden shaft and end tip, which is topped off with a graphite grey metal ferrule, matching the metal open cap and rounded spoke tips.
The Warwick boasts a powerful automatic opening mechanism, thanks to the 8 spring system. You need to take care when you press the button as it’s more than capable of knocking a pasty out of the hand of a nearby tin miner. WHOMP!! The strong, light fibreglass ribs are mated to a steel 8 spring frame, with additional nylon cantilever system for increased flexibility and longevity.
The canopy is “pongee”, widely regarded as the only choice for a serious umbrella. Canopy width is approximately 105 cm (37″) and overall length 89 cm (35″). Weight 440 g approx.
Available in a choice of colours, the Warwick Windproof Walking Umbrella is equally stylish and practical for ladies or gents.
Perhaps a poem praising this umbrella would have been appropriate. Leave it with me…
Oh Warwick thou art mighty fine
Umbrella something something mine
To keep me dry when there is wind
They are quickly binned…
