The Blunt Classic
This Umbrella Can Handle Rain and Winds up to 72pmh—and it’s on Sale
At some point in your life, you learn to quit messing around with cheap, easy-to-break umbrellas that bend and snap at the slightest puff of wind. If you’ve finally reached that point, we recommend pouncing on this excellent Blunt Umbrella deal from Massdrop, which has the brand’s Classic umbrella marked down to $50 (a $40 drop from MSRP).
The Blunt Classic has a solid, non-collapsing handle and a radial tensioning system that’s meant to keep the umbrella as taut as possible when open. Its manufacturers say it’s been tested at Force 11 (72 miles per hour) winds. That’s just short of a hurricane on the Beaufort scale. We’d really recommend not going outdoors in that kind of weather, but it’s nice to know that your umbrella can handle it, even if you might not.
A note on Massdrop:
Massdrop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Massdrop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Massdrop works, click here.
