A splash-resister / umbrella

A splash-resister
A splash-resister

An umbrella is a hand-held portable device designed to protect against rain. Traditional straight umbrellas have a defect in that the raindrops can splash on the user’s body when closing the umbrella downward. This product is a special windproof umbrella whose ribs are 2-folded design. When closing the umbrella, the stretchers drive the outer ribs to fold up the outer canopy upward so as to prevent user from splashed rain drops. In addition, since the specific mechanism of rib, stretch, and stroller, this umbrella will not fold up or turn inside out on the user during high wind events.
