Nubrella Ultimate Weather Protector: Love It or Hate It?

We've all heard of an umbrella, but a Nubrella? Welcome the umbrella that is more like a canopy, shielding you all around from the wind, rain, and snow — the elements. The Nubrella ($70) is nifty, but I wouldn't carry it. I'd rather be cold than be the girl in a dorky bubble. Would you wear it?

Gee the designer thinks this is something new? Worth $70? UH...we had these in the 60's or 70's...they were see thru, same material, shaped just a tad different..more height above head but then did come down over you like this one...ya know what? THEY ARE NOT practical...the design caused the wind to blow RIGHT UP IN there and create a mini tornado- there went your hair...they were worthless. DO NOT buy one for 70 bucks, please. Unless they have some hidden aerodynamics I can't see, you will be sorry. Been there, done that. FLOP. IF on the occasionally stormy day it wasnt windy (right) it still seemed to create somewhat of a vortex, sucking the air (AND moisture) up into the "bubble"; was nice being able to see where you were going though. LOL

I think it makes much more sense than an umbrella, especially since the wind tends to change the angle of the rain (and not in our favour either). However, it's design being so unusual, it will either take a while (and a couple of celebrities) to make it the next best thing, or it will quietly leave the runway altogether. I like it, though. Good gob, inventor-people.

Wouldn't it be awkward for her to walk in crowded areas? People can barely go near her; thanks to the width of that Nubrella

This should NOT be in FabSugar, it should be in GiggleSugar. That thing is kinda funny.

I think it looks really wierd, and doesn't seem to cover fully from rain.

I'd so wear that! I'll be laughing at all the people who are fighting the wind and trying to hold their umbrella straight while I walk freely. It's the future baby, get with it!

I wouldn't be caught dead wearing this. I'd honestly prefer freezing my ass off and getting wet than being a laughingstock.

Interesting idea, poor execution. Lord knows it'd make walking the dog easier (it looks to be harness-held), but in a good Chicago wind gust, I'd probably topple over backward!

if you have two umbrellas coming towards eachother in the street, you lift yours up to not bump into eachother, whats this umby's plan on not getting bumped?
