For those of us who live in a stormy city or just have this burning desire to simply carry this eye-catching umbrella, the SENZ storm-proof umbrella ($60) is the savior of all products. This simple and very necessary piece of equipment can withstand winds of up to 70 mph (hmmm...we're not sure if we wouldn't be blown away first with winds at that speed...). What we find most endearing are the "eye-savers", designed to protect your eyes as well as the eyes of passers-by from being poked out. Ahhh, how thoughtful, right? So for all you storm chasers, newscasters, or storm loving maniacs out there, this can take the place of any other futile attempt to keep the rain (and wind) off you. Who'd ever thunk it? Also comes in sophisticated black and 3 different sizes.
