Brave the wind and rain in confidence with the Helinox Umbrella range

Written by 

Umbrellas are not on everybody's kit list but there's no doubt they have more than a few fans and the Helinox Umbrella One and Umbrella Two have been built to provide robust protection from the rain in all conditions.

Helinox Umbrellas 002

Lightweight, tough and practical, both products feature cutting edge materials and have been developed in collaboration with Eberhard Göbel, a family owned company from Germany that has been making high quality umbrellas for almost a century.

The Helinox Umbrella One and Umbrella Two each feature a one piece, mechanism-free operation with foam grip and strap. The shafts are made out of extremely strong DAC TH72M aluminium (63.5cm and 75cm long respectively), while the canopies (97cm and 114cm diameter) provide comprehensive protection from the rain and the sun (UPF 25). The umbrellas are extremely compact when not in use and very lightweight at only 210g and 326g.

Available now from specialist outdoor retailers, the Helinox Umbrella One is priced at £65 and the Umbrella Two costs £75.
