Japanese Superstore Tokyu Hands has launched the Shoulderbrella, which is a umbrella that can be worn around the shoulders. Most people find carrying umbrellas and holding them a big pain, as they not only hurt your hands and arms, but may also result in repetitive muscle injury.
You could choose to wrap it around a shoulder or in order to gain more balance, you could wrap it around both the shoulders. When the wind picks up, it will not fly away, and you won’t feel tired or hurt if you have to walk long distances in the rain, as there is no need for you to manually hold the umbrella upright.
Most importantly, the Shoulderbrella is chic and stylish, and thus looks very good. You could stay in fashion, stay dry and also stay in relative comfort. The Shoulderbella costs $25 and is worth buying, especially with the rainy season approaching. It is an amazingly smart idea, and I would wish if they designed a manlier version too.
