Backpack Umbrella: For hands-free rain avoidance

275x250.jpgWe've seen some pretty odd umbrellas in the past, but even when compared to the samurai sword brolly, the the self defence umbrella and (possibly) the Nubrella... this one is a little strange.    

The Backpack Umbrella is, as you might have guessed, an umbrella that is worn on the back and can be used without having to hold it.

Makers say the odd umbrella is ideal for use when you are burdened by packages, a dog's leash, or doing other activities that require both hands.

And a spokesperson for Hammacher Schlemmer, where the brolly can be bought for £25 online, added: "The Backpack Umbrella helps pedestrians stay dry while leaving their hands free to carry groceries or luggage."

The rain shelter is stored in the included backpack and when wet weather approaches, it attaches to its integrated support rod, providing instant, mobile, hands-free (and slightly daft looking) shelter.
