Walksafe Umbrella by Shed Rain Review and Giveaway

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

How many of you like getting caught in the rain. Me, not so much but I’d much rather get wet going home than going to someplace and for that reason I like keeping an umbrella in my car. Now speaking of cars how many of you when driving in the rain can see that great in front of you at night. Picture someone walking across the street with jeans or dark pants and a dark umbrella over their head. Do you think you’d be able to see them. Now put yourself in the role of the pedestrian, would you hope someone could see you. Short of dressing in white or there’s not much you can do until now.

I recently reviewed the Walk Safe umbrella. This thing is so neat, it’s got 3M Scotchlite reflective material built into the umbrella at each spoke so you can be seen at night. How great is that. Not only is the umbrella great for night time use but it folds up small, it closes so easily.

The style I received was Style 2012 that has some neat features. Press a button and the umbrella handle lengthens and it pops open. But wait, there’s more. Press the button again and it shuts. Well, there is one little bit you have to do on your own and that’s to push the handle into itself so it gets back to that nice small package that will fit in your purse or coat pocket.

Now for a feature I was really impressed about. The case it slides into opens wide enough to actually get the umbrella into without a lot of pushing and pulling. OK I’ll admit it doesn’t take much to impress me but that was just one more thing I liked about this umbrella.

Now for the best part of all. Shed Rain, the makers of the Walk Safe Umbrella has offered not one, not two but seven itmes for me to give away. I’m going to be running this giveaway a bit different as it will only run for 1 week as opposed to the 2 most of them run. When 1 giveaway ends the next will be posted to start. Of the seven items to give away there are 4 umbrella’s, 2 poncho’s (1 youth, 1 adult) and 1 wind and rain bonnet. These will be given away in random order so you’ll need to check back every week to see what it will be.

The first giveaway will be for the style I received. Style 2012,

  • AUTO OPEN & CLOSE
  • 42-inch arc (111.8 cm), 3-section shaft,
  • automatic open/close
  • Closed: approximately 12 inches (30.48 cm) in length
  • Steel shaft and ribs

    Have had relatively poor experiences with umbrellas. Purchased the “wind” proof ones designed to not collapse or turn inside out which did not work and the arms broke easily.
    Do a lot of walking after dark and would enjoy trying this umbrella
