As temperatures and snowflakes start falling, you’re going to want as many tools in your winter arsenal as possible. Coats, jackets, and gloves are essentials, but you don’t hear many people list umbrellas as a must-have — probably because most of the available options can’t stand up to winter’s harsh storms. These two innovative picks are worth carrying this holiday season.

Blunt Umbrella

This sturdy, aerodynamic umbrella withstands winds up to 55mph thanks to a 37” rip-resistant polyester canopy. Its Radial Tensioning System redirects the effort you use to open it, so it easily unfolds with just one hand. It’s GPS-ready with support for the Tile tracking system so that you can protect your investment, and it travels easily without poking anyone around you thanks to its blunted edges.

Sale Price: $59

SwissTek Double Layer Smart Umbrella

A one-of-a-kind, reverse-folding design sets SwissTek’s double layer umbrella apart from the crowd. It opens from the top instead of the bottom, making it easier to open, close, and store, and the ergonomic C-shaped handle fits around your wrist for hands-free use. Best of all, it stands vertically while it’s closed, so it drains more effectively for a drier experience the next time you head outside.

MSRP: $140

Sale Price: $33 (76% off)
