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!

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.

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