Who would have thought that by just making the simple addition to an umbrella it would change everything? A second grip could make an umbrella more than just a frustrating mess of metal and nylon during a windy rainstorm? But from the looks of it the sublimely genius Grip2 umbrella could make maelstroms easier to manage.
Besides a double-layer canopy that helps prevent the blowing wind from turning your umbrella into a personal sail, the GRIP2 has a repositionable second grip on the shaft that provides more leverage and control against gusts. At around $65, it’s a little on the high-end as far as umbrellas go, but if you actually add up the cost of umbrellas you’ve lost to storms, it could very well be a worthwhile investment if it actually lasts longer than a month.
No more grabbing the skinny shaft, which causes fatigue in the fingers, hand, and wrist. The GRIP2 umbrella provides control in windy conditions. This innovative dual-grip design has been patented and provides unmatched performance in heavy wind and rain.
