The Life Venture Trek Umbrella is compact, durable and lightweight. It's the ideal size to keep in your bag in case you get caught in the rain.
Life Venture says: Get a grip on your trek umbrella with its ergonomic rubberised handle, mechanised open and close system, durable ripstop canopy and compact design. With a touch of a button the umbrella will spring open or closed, meaning minimal time between the heavens opening and you being safely covered! Wind bellows help prevent damage to your umbrella in rougher weather.
It may be a little heavier than your average umbrella, but it's much tougher too thanks it's sturdy aluminium frame and durable ripstop canopy with wind bellows. The automatic open and close system is what adds extra weight but it's definitely worth it if you don't want to get soaked when the heavens suddenly open.
Of course if your packing a waterproof jacket then you don't really need to carry an umbrella but for those going to areas where it's also very sunny then it's UPF 50+ sun protection will come in incredibly handy.
