All you need is an added gust of wind and your hood will be rendered useless, exposing your perfectly styled hair or expertly applied make-up to the worst possible weather.
Save yourself from such horror with an umbrella. Not one of those awful flowery ones that your Nan always has at hand or one of those massive golf umbrellas though, they really won’t do.
I’m talking about an umbrella that’s so good, that even the dark lord Vader would be happy to use it. It has a light-sabre style iridescent red anodised aluminium shaft and a jet black rain canopy with a white Galactic Empire emblem emblazoned on it.
It’s generously sized at 119.4cm in diameter, so no matter how torrential the sudden rain is, you’ll be able to stay dry. You can preorder the Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber umbrella now.
When it’s finally available, it’ll cost you $60 (£39.99). This if an officially licensed piece of Star Wars merchandise and even comes with its own carrying sheath.
So you can carry it across your back like a light-sabre even when it’s dry and bright outside. Geeky? Ahem, I think the word you are looking for is awesome! Bad news though, you’ll have to make any light-sabre sound effects yourself.
