    Link: World`s Strongest Umbrella - Umbrella withstands 80-mph gales from a wind tunnel. Hey, if you go out in 80-mph winds maybe you deserve to get wet.

    At 80 mph the rain is going to be horizontal, rendering an umbrella useless anyway.

    I thought he was going to tilt it over, parachute style. That`s how brollies get wrecked. I remain unimpressed.

    haha, that`s exactly what I was thinking. Maybe he`s supposed to hold it forward like a shield.

    Uh, that`s exactly what you`re supposed to do with it -- put it between you and the rain, from whatever direction it coming.

    People are completely missing the point. It`s not about staying dry in 80MPH rainstorms. It`s about not having to buy a new umbrella every time a gust suddenly whips up.

    It`s called a storm-umbrella and, hipster as I am, I have one. Pretty awesome, very light and tough. Quite expensive at EUR 50,- which is about $65,35 Monopoly dollars. Worth it!
