The Shield Umbrella is Light, Convenient, and Packed with Features

With a nickname like the 'Air Umbrella,' this inflatable umbrella has a delightfully surprising set of features that make it far superior to the ordinary model. This concept, created by Kevin Lee, encompasses a variety of capabilities that improve the comfort of a user on a miserable, rainy day.

First of all, the simple push of a button on the aluminum handle instantly initiates the inflation of the thin and durable shell. The GOR-TEX and transparent PVC materials act as a protective barrier, through which the user can still see what's ahead. Plus it integrates hidden ventilation to reduce condensation and prevent the pressure of the wind taking control over its position. Just adjacent to the valves of the inflatable umbrella are LED lights that illuminate a gloomy walk at night. It's got everything.
