It is quite frustrating when it's windy outside and the rain is whipping you in the face, but it's almost unavoidable. With the submarine umbrellas, users can indulge in a little fantasy by imaging life under water, temporarily escaping from the terrible weather they are currently experiencing.

The quirky umbrella comes with a subtle periscope, a spotting mechanism for the underwater ships, at the top. Available in the typical submarine yellow and cement grey, the umbrella lets the users duck from the falling droplets, keeping their heads up high instead of bent while walking under the dome.
