I have not tried the Blunt performance umbrella yet but look forward to buying it! I have recently moved from the suburbs into the city...Chicago, The Windy City. I was walking in the rain with an umbrella...one of those smaller collapsible ones..and I had forgotten what close quarters the sidewalks can be. I was terrified I was going to poke someone in the eye with my umbrella not to mention the flimsy quality of those collapsible jobs. What a great invention...an umbrella that's not going to invert in the wind plus no danger of poking someone with the spokes! Thank you, Mark Duffin, and thank you Daily Grommet for bringing the Blunt to us!
Much as I liked the durability of the , its shape (which forced up to 70mph wind to slide off) was exceptionally weird-looking. That's why the Blunt Umbrella, which can withstand the same strain, seems a much better solution - there's no aerodynamic abomination with a few useful updates to boot.
@Michele S. Oldfield: And thank YOU for stopping by today and taking the time to post. I think the Blunt umbrella would be perfect for you. Have fun exploring your new home.
A nice gentleman stopped by our office today to get a closer look at the Blunt Classic Umbrella. He had it in mind for his wife. It takes a manual motion to open the umbrella. To open, you have to give a pretty firm push until you hear a “click” (It is not an automatic/push-button mechanism). To close the umbrella, you twist to release and then pull it closed. He was impressed with the durability of the umbrella design, but because of the manual aspect it was not right his wife. Let us know if you have questions. We are happy to help you decide if this or other products are a good fit for you.
