I’m sure at one point or another we’ve all tried using our phones or gadgets while also trying to hold on to an umbrella in the pouring rain. It can be a challenge.
Chicago-based company Brollytime has redesigned the basic umbrella and fitted it with an ergonomic rubber and plastic four-finger grip that gives the umbrella a more firm and comfortable hold and even allows the owner to easily use gadgets with the same hand holding the umbrella.
The four-finger grip of the Brolly, named after the British term for umbrellas, frees up the holder’s thumb for texting or emailing while staying safe and dry.
The Brolly sells for $20 a piece on the company’s website.
