Dunlop Golf Umbrella
Advantages: STURDY, PLENTY OF ROOM, PROVIDES GREAT SHELTER.
Disadvantages: NOT VERY SMART TO LOOK AT. A BIT OF A PAIN TO CARRY AROUND WHEN IT'S NOT RAINING.
I was caught out a treat last week. I had gone to visit my sister but hadn't bargained on the sudden change in the weather and the torrential downpour that occured. My sis, ever the organised presented me with a huge dunlop golfing umbrella. I was ever so impressed and grateful as walking home without it would have made me transform into a great impersination of a drowned rat!
What I loved about this umbrella the most was it's strength. It is really durable and despite the wind being quite strong, the umbrella held it's own and did not turn inside out like some of the more flimsy umbrellas. It also had a long handle, which had a great grip accessory on the bottom. This was very useful indeed as I felt I had a great hold on the umbrella. Which in turn made it easier to keep under control.
This umbrella, is very smart. It can be used by both male and females. However, I would have to say that it is not my usual style of umbrella. I am more a girly girl and so found the plain striped umbrella held no status in the fashion stakes. Saying that, all the fashionable umbrellas that I have bought always turn inside out and within two minutes of use. So on this occasion, I will let fashion and accessorising go out of the window.
One positive on the style stakes is that it is made by the sports brand dunlop. Dunlop is a great retro brand and is seen by some as real cool and on trend.
The umbrella itself has a 62 inch width. Which I found not only big enough to keep me dry but also gave me great protection and shelter from the wind. There was plenty of room underneath this umbrella for another person. The only concern I did have regarding it's large size is that I felt concious that I was going to get in people's way or knock another walker with this brolley. This is certainly not an umbrella to be used in a busy town centre as it would be almost impossible to navigate.
All in all I was very pleased with this umbrella. I was even more pleased when my sister said I could keep it. I now keep it in my car for emergencies. However, I was quite suprised at the amount of space it requires when collapsed. This umbrella is never going to fit into your bag. ( unless your Mary Poppins!) It does indeed take up quite a bit of room and I have on occasion found it to ba right pain when carrying around when dismantled.
So this is the Dunlop umbrella. It will most certainly keep you dry and well protected. It wont win you any awards from the fashion police, but when it keeps your hair dry who cares!!!
I believe that these umbrellas can be purchased from sports direct. The retail price is £9.99 but if you are lucky enough you may get a huge reduction on this price as they are often slashing prices to create amazing bargains.
Summary: DUNLOP HAVE DUNGOOD WITH THIS BROLLY.
