Contest: Rain On Me Umbrellas
Rain On Me umbrellas marry fashion with function in a city where umbrellas are a requirement.
Some things are synonymous with each other: peanut butter and jelly, Bill and Ted, Vancouver and rain. “Liquid sunshine” is simply a fact of life on the west coast. We are, after all, in a temperate rainforest. Waterproof boots, Gore-Tex, and a sturdy umbrella are de rigueur in Vancouver as a means of survival, but the super-sweet gals at rain on me umbrellas wanted their gear to be more than just functional.
Quickly search Google for “umbrella etiquette Vancouver” and you’ll find page after page of blog posts. These articles are dedicated to the expected behaviour of the throngs of Vancouverites volleying for space on city sidewalks in the rainy season. As a tall gal myself, having received my fair share of umbrella pokes in the face, you can imagine my swoon when I spotted rain on me‘s #umbrellaetiquette brolly!
rain on me was created with individuality in mind. In a city where most umbrellas are considered a disposable, grab-and-go accessory, their umbrellas make a statement while coming in strong on the quality game. Many Vancouverites will spend $100+ on durable rain boots but maybe just $10 or on something intended to keep them dry. rain on me umbrellas let your umbrella be a fashion piece that makes a statement – literally. The umbrellas come in two sizes: the big one and the not so big one. The newly-released line of smaller umbrellas is perfect for on-the-go gals with umbrellas that are small enough to fit in your purse, gym bag, or backpack!
