warning

On strong windy days, do not, I repeat do not take your umbrella out because it will not survive the walk.  I've seen people walking bent over, leaning to the left or right, and suddenly they're trying to adjust or hold on to their umbrella.  It either blew inside out or just blew away.  This is one example how umbrellas stand up to the wind on the shore walk.  It didn't survive, instead got tossed away like a bad fish.

  3. They could have at least tossed it in the bin! That is littering!

  4. You are giving me some good examples as to what happens when you have a storm there. Nice catch on the umbrella.

  5. At least one should have the consideration to put it in the trash. I have one, but I haven't used it in years. On a rainy day I just tuck my backpack under a jacket and wear a baseball cap.

  7. We have the same here in Bergen. Umbrella is for nothing. Only the special rain protection cloths. Greetings

  9. I just received a Titan umbrella that claims to withstands winds up to 70mph. I don't plan to be out in that sort of wind; it would be a hurricane!
