Rainy days are not write-offs, and this exercise umbrella will motivate activity amid even the drabbest of weather. Mikhail Belyaev worked to reinvent the portable shelter for showers, striving to improve the way the user interacts, for both practicality and productivity.

What sets this parasol apart from regular models is its looped handle, which was thoughtfully designed with ergonomics in mind. Unlike cane-shaped and straight handgrips, this one can be comfortably held in one hand with no crook or strain to your wrist. But going a step further, the Impulse Umbrella features an 'espander' hand strengthener, thanks to the slightly pliable material where it's grasped. While you walk in the rain, this exercise umbrella can help you build muscle in your forearms, your hands and your fingers.
