Showerproof Champions 2017: Spring Umbrellas Edit
With UK springtime officially starting next week, it’s time to start losing those layers in the hope of warmer temperatures. But while we’ve got our fingers crossed that things will heat up, we’re not so optimistic about the clouds. So shelter from the inevitable spring rains with these showerproof champions!
Ted Baker Umbrella
As with everything Ted Baker, this umbrella oozes class and sophistication. With its signature colourful Ted printed lining, this classic style brolly is perfect for any urban Joe who need something reliable and stylish. It’s branded on the outside and comes complete with a wooden-look handle.
Impliva Golf Umbrella

We think accessories are one of the best ways Joes can really show some colour without turning too many heads down the High Street. So if you’re looking to add a little more brightness to your look, we love this Impliva Golf Umbrella in Yellow/Navy. Coming with a wooden handle and polyester canopy, it’s also extremely good value at just over £15.
Falcone Golf Clouds
For something nice and playful, this Falcone golf umbrella will have you seeing Blue skies in no time, literally. The Black double canopy umbrella features a printed clouds pattern underneath its roof, and is sure to brighten even the dullest of days. It features an automatic open mechanism and a Black rubberised crook handle, as well as lightweight fibreglass shaft and ribs that ensure strength and stability in strong winds.
Blunt XS Metro + Tile
While we’re not overly keen on the style of this Blunt XS Metro umbrella, we don’t half love the USP. With the added Tile device, you’ll never lose your umbrella again as it will track it via an accompanying app! The umbrella itself is also well designed and is suitably aerodynamic, collapsible and strong thanks to reinforcement by the 4mm fibreglass ribs.
King of Clubs Umbrella

The London Undercover King of Clubs umbrella is a brolly which should make it easy to ignore those dark days. This premium double layered wet weather warrior comes with a traditional Beech wood shaft and handle, an engraved plate with the London Undercover logo and a King of Clubs design on the inside for a bit of added class.
