Strong Umbrellas

It's been windy for the past rainy days and my umbrella is having a hard time not being flipped inside-out. Could someone recommend where I could get a reliable umbrella?

Preferably not the huge ones that look like it can fit 3 people underneath.

i have one. generally wouldnt recommend it.
best thing to do is wear a hooded raincoat on a windy, rainy day and not try to fight the wind with an umbrella.

Fulton makes the best umbrellas. Super small, super light and never goes inside out. You can get them at Sears and actually the Shoppers Drug Mart in Yaletown carries them as well.

if ordering online isn't an issue


if you dont mind spending a chunk of change you can check these guys out http://www.swaineadeney.co.uk/ (damned good umbrella)


I recently stumbled on this brand though that also makes all wood umbrellas too for a helluva lot cheaper, a bit more than Fultons though

in case some are interested, they ship worldwide for free too

Support local! Besides, their umbrellas have very robust ribs!

I actually saw this one at the London Transport Museum: The Commuter - London Undercover x Transport for London Tube Seat Umbrella

It's a REALLY NICELY BUILT umbrella....if it were not close to $100CAD, I would have totally picked it up.

Don't think there would be duty, but surely tax since its way above $50cad.

"Tax" is basically in effect for anything you buy...including items shipped from abroad.

"Duty" is a charge on top of taxes that is applied onto specific products, with rules governing which kind of products will be charged duty...i.e. tires made in China.

According to this: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/trade-com...6-2012-eng.pdf

Duty is 7% for "walking stick umbrellas". This is in addition/on top of the 12% HST.

Again, taxes and duty does not work this way. See my above response to LIKEABOSS.

Was looking around for a Fulton umbrella, wanted the jumbo compact size but it's 35 bucks before taxes.

Are there usually deals on the fulton umbrellas?
