Mary Poppins would not have gotten far with a Senz umbrella. Her umbrella, like yours probably, catches wind gusts and pulls whatever arm is holding onto the umbrella up and away. And if the wind gust is strong enough it will turn the normal umbrella inside out.
A Senz umbrella is different. It is designed to play with the wind.
While a typical umbrella is like a parachute the Senz is like an airplane wing. The Senz angles airflow around the umbrella, making the Senz usable in gales up to 70 mph (100 km/h). The Senz also shields your eyes from the rain and comes with an opening mechanism integrated in the handle. All of which has earned the Senz umbrella numerous accolades including a Red Dot Design Award, a selection for TIME Magazine’s invention of the year and, of course, Spot Cool Stuff’s endorsement.
Check out the video below that shows the Senz in a wind tunnel, held by people skydiving and used by a passenger on a speeding motorcycle.
