The Unbreakable® Umbrella works just as well as a walking stick or cane but does not make you look funny or feel awkward. Whacks just as strong as a steel pipe but it weighs only 1 lb. and 9 oz. (710 g). And yes, this umbrella resists the wind and will keep you dry in rain just like the best umbrella should.I wrote about this remarkable device as long ago as 2010 (Icons passim), but it was not until last June that Funes the Memorious (my brother John) bought me one - to my surprise and delight - for my birthday.
This week I can confirm (after carrying it with me as a month's worth of rain fell in a few hours) that - for all that it is also weaponized - it is the best and most robust umbrella ever keeping-you-dry-for-the-purposes-of.
I tried balancing on it between two stools (as illustrated on https://youtu.be/bO8G5zsQohg) in the Standard as a tribute, but that was kyboshed by the bar staff because "fell off umbrella" would not have seemed credible in an insurance claim or Health and Safety statement.
I am a unique and special snowflake who must not be put in harm's way.
