Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've given up on umbrellas a long time, a good water proof coat, preferably long, with a hood and a pair of good shoes or boots provides all the protection i need. If it's windy my legs get wet anyway, with or without umbrella.

The other day there was a stormy afternoon in Lisbon with strong winds and rain. Guess what object was ubiquously featuring in all the news? Broken umbrellas...
