GAX UMBRELLA G-1 is an innovative umbrella designed for comfort and convenience when getting in and out of cars in rainy weather. (An innovative umbrella that has removed discomfort) 1. The cloth on the wet side folds inside, so it does not make the car interior or room wet. 2. The umbrella can already be opened when the car door is only slightly open before getting out. 3. The umbrella can be closed after getting inside the vehicle. 4. It does not make the car seat or clothes wet. Reversing the cloth and stretching the cloth ˗ only GAX technology can accomplish the two tasks in one action. The ultimate umbrella designed with a complex mechanism yet in a stylish form.
