Spinning a cheeseburger on an umbrella sounds like a ridiculous and unnecessary endeavor. But after watching juggler Michael Rayner balance one on edge, spin it around, and separate its pickles, we’re all for the concept. The only thing better than this video is watching it at 5x speed.
This compact umbrella weighs just 87 grams – or about 3 ounces, making it lighter than most smartphones. Despite its weight, it’s durable, using a carbon fiber rib structure, and it repels water faster than most with its AquaRepel canopy. It measures 8.1″ x 1.6″ when folded.
Modern umbrellas are mass-produced from synthetic fabric and a metal frame. On the other hand, Wagasa umbrellas are painstakingly handmade from bamboo, string, tapioca glue, washi paper, and linseed oil. Business Insider visited artist Kotaro Nishibori to see how he carries this beautiful Japanese tradition.
Keep dry on the course no matter how heavy the rain is falling with one of these massive golf umbrellas from Bagail. Made from high-quality micro-weave fabric, they come in 58″, 62″, and 68″ diameters, and offer a sturdy fiberglass shaft and dual-canopy design that prevents damage from wind gusts.
Hedgehog’s premium umbrella is equipped with ribs that pivot and adjust independently. This allows it to withstand winds up to 70 mph, outlasting other umbrellas with ease. It also has a carbon fiber frame, making it extremely durable, and an interchangeable canopy.
