To assist you in finding the perfect umbrella for your personality, we at The Umbrella Shop have devised a list.  Are you someone who seeks practicality, or maybe you're looking to make a statement with your style.  Take a look at the list below to find out your archetype and see the umbrellas we suggest you carry.

 

THE OUTDOORSY TYPE:

YOU ARE: a dog walker, the soccer mom, a constant walker

You are seeking an umbrella that is light, durable and gives good coverage. You want to be able to use your umbrella daily without having to worry about a surprise from mother nature.  You generally have longer periods of use with your umbrella and therefore seek decent cover circumference to avoid the eventual soaking from heavier rain fall.
