Brollytime created an umbrella with a handle that frees the user's thumb.

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.
