Easy-carrying / umbrella


It’s very difficult to hold an umbrella in the rain when it’s very windy. Easy-carrying is an umbrella which has a hoop partly wrapped by rubber material on the pole and can be set in people's shoulder, it allows user to hold the umbrella with shoulder which is more powerful than hand. It has a thin pole below the pooh which you can use to adjust the direction. The thin pole can be rotated 180 degrees and be hidden in the umbrella surface when the umbrella has been closed. At the same time, the hoop becomes a handle you can hold or back on your shoulder like a bag. This design makes the umbrella easier to carry whether it is in use or not.
