We have covered some very cool umbrellas here in the past. If ninja or samurai umbrellas are not your thing, you may want to give the Color Changing Umbrella a look. It has a water-activated canopy with hydro-chromatic ink that appears white when dry but turns colorful when it rains. The canopy is made from 170-thread count polyester pongree fabric treated with a water-repellant coating.
The Color Changing Umbrella makes you look cooler while walking in the rain. I still prefer my sword umbrella to this.
