Recently, we’ve seen a modern take on the umbrella, and one made especially for dogs. Now there’s the Dualbrella – a clever twist on the traditional umbrella that provides ample cover for two and can be held with one hand. It’s also an ideal way to befriend that cute person at the bus stop when there’s an unexpected downpour – without having to think of a catchy (and possibly ineffective) pick-up line.
The best thing about the Dualbrella is there’s no need to jockey for a position underneath the canopy. It measures a massive six feet (1.83m) wide and is three feet (0.91m) deep. The lightweight dual side tubes, ribs and stretchers ensure the umbrella remains rigid and make it strong enough to last more than one season (or girlfriend/boyfriend).
