Cubbyhole Umbrella

The cubbyhole umbrella offered by the Porsche Driver's Selection seems like a great solution, but I've always balked at its high price (over a hundred bucks!).

There's lots of mini umbrellas out there, but until recently, I couldn't find one that utilized the entire area.

Picked this one up at Marshalls, an off-price department store, for less than ten bucks.




Weatherproof style: WP-M-540. Dimensions: 13" x 2.5". Fits snugly in the cubbyhole, has a sewn in handle in the cover for easy removal. Complete with carabiner so one can fasten it to a belt loop for hands-free carry.

Just sayin'...........

FYI, it was given three (100%) 1-star reviews on Amazon. You might want to make sure it opens before you're caught in the rain.

Awesome! I’ll order one.

If it doesn’t work right, I’ll fix it. The main thing is that it fits (and it looks like a near perfect fit).

Used the umbrella in the rain for the first time today. Just watch out when you press the release button. The frame shoots out like a rocket. Best to put your hand over it before it explodes. YMMV.

Just sayin'.........
