When we think about umbrellas our minds tend to immediately jump to rain, or in my case, lovely weddings. But sun parasols can be an incredibly stylish way to keep cool during the hot summer months, especially when you’re constantly clicking your heels across steaming city sidewalks.

Looking for something less fancy and more utilatarian? The compact or golf ShedRays would be perfect for you. These umbrellas have an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50 plus, guarding you against the sun’s damaging rays. You’ll actually be able to feel the difference as the temperature is estimated to be 10 degrees cooler under these umbrellas!

It’s time to stop saving your umbrellas for a rainy day. No need to pack your pretty brollies away during long hot summers. Sun is the new rain. Spread the word!
