Saiveina umbrella and Hanmir Mens Womens Umbrella

 

I often think the UK default weather setting is Rain, it seems so this year anyway, so a good quality umbrella is essential. this one fots the bill perfectly.

It comes in a choice of colours, red, blue or black. Its very easy to open, simply click the handle and it automatically snaps fully open. That’s really useful if you’ve briefcase, bags, dogs or children with you, leaving only one hand free. No more struggling to keep hold of them and open brolly! Once opened out its a good decent size to keep you and a friend dry. Then to close simply press handle again and it folds down. Tweak the fold in the fabric to ensure correctly folded, and its easy to roll up, then press down against the ground to retract handle and pop into the case provided.

The fabric feels very robust, a tightly woven material – pongee fabric. I had to look that up not knowing what it is – wiki told me :  Pongee is a soft thin woven cloth. In the early 20th century, pongee was an important export from China to the United States. Pongee is still woven in silk by many mills across China, especially along the banks of the Yangtze at mills in Sichuan, Anhui, Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces. Bit of history lesson there too!

I did think the fabric felt like a silk construction. The metal  framework is very well made, and looks set to last through the strongest gales. The description says windproof and I assume by that they mean it won’t turn inside out in heavy winds – that’s a real nuisance when it happens. The handle is very comfortable. Usually they are very thin and hard plastic or wood, either curved into a U shape or straight, and both are difficult to grip and slippery in the rain. This handle is wide enough to grip firmly and has a soft breathable section, making it very comfortable. The controls for closing and opening are here on the handle, and easy to flick with a thumb while holding it. There’s also a loop to slip over wrist to carry or hang up later.

Its a perfect brolly, smart and yet very functional too

It comes in a choice of colours, red, pink, blue or black. Its very easy to open, simply click the handle and it automatically snaps fully open. That’s really useful if you’ve briefcase, bags, dogs or children with you, leaving only one hand free. No more struggling to keep hold of them and open brolly! Once opened out its a good decent size to keep you and a friend dry. Then to close simply press handle again and it folds down. Tweak the fold in the fabric to ensure correctly folded, and its easy to roll up, then press down against the ground to retract handle and pop into the case provided.

The fabric feels very silky, and is a tight weave. The description says : Nano umbrella cloth, light and water repellent fabric, Nanostructures water repellent protective layer, water pressure resistance values up 10000 mm H2O, water-repellent 200% performance increase, really strong water repellent fabric,swing to dry. To be honest I haven’t a clue what that means, but it sounds as though its lightfast fabric so won’t fade, has good water repellent properties ( and the close weave will also help that) and is quick drying. What’s really useful too is the reflective edging surround the while, making it very easy to be seen in dim light. Safety is very important and ever little that gets you seen is helpful.

The metal  framework is a Aluminium-magnesium alloy, making it lightweight and the robust construction looks set to last through the strongest gales. The description says windproof and I assume by that they mean it won’t turn inside out in heavy winds – that’s a real nuisance when it happens. The handle is very comfortable. Usually they are very thin and hard plastic or wood, either curved into a U shape or straight, and both are difficult to grip and slippery in the rain. This handle is wide enough to grip firmly and has a  little “give” in the material, making it very comfortable. The controls for closing and opening are here on the handle, and easy to flick with a thumb while holding it. There’s also a loop to slip over wrist to carry or hang up later.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
