In Vancouver (and perhaps in other rainy cities?) it seems like there is some sort of real or imagined snobbery against umbrellas. Apparently if you're a "real" Vancouverite all you wear is a Gore-tex jacket with a hood. Well, I wouldn't be caught dead in Gore-tex outside the dog park or ski hill, so I happen to like umbrellas.
If you lose or break umbrellas easily, these might not be for you. But if you guard your umbrella with your life like I do, check out these beautiful options. I've had my Pare*umbrella for around 6 years and can vouch for its quality. I like to think of an umbrella as an accessory, not an afterthought.
