Saving For a Rainy Day: 10 Umbrellas To Get You Through The Storm

We figure that if we added up the dough we've collectively spent on flimsy $5 umbrellas (that always freakin' break), we could probably buy a modest sailboat, and take off for distant, rainless shores. Alas, we're not the type to run (or sail) away from our frustrations: instead, we're solving our parapluie problems by plunking down some extra cash on one of these sturdier styles—each of these will definitely last you more than ten city blocks!
