Swiss Umbrella / Umbrella

Swiss Umbrella
Swiss Umbrella

SWISS umbrella changes the way of storage. The handle portion
becomes a storage space for the cover and ribs which are fully

The way of use is like Swiss Army Knife. When you need to use it
, just press the button and turn the cover and bones out of the shell.
