OK, so you know those nights where you’re going out with the girls — you’ve copied Alix Earle’s makeup routine, consulted your friends on your outfit and ordered the Uber — but it’s raining? Besides getting soaked, the rain will ruin all that work you put into your final look. It will especially do a number on you if you have to stand in line for the club or plan to barhop. Carrying a chunky umbrella is annoying, and don’t kid yourself: You’ll forget it at the first spot. That’s why you need a teeny tiny umbrella, like this one from Amazon, to stash in your handbag.
Seriously, the ESUFEIR Mini Travel Umbrella is really small, like only 5.5 inches long. But when it’s open, it’s 34.5 inches in diameter, so it’s worth carrying to keep at least your head and shoulders dry.
According to the product description, it’s a UV-protecting umbrella first and blocks 99% of the sun’s rays. However, it’s also waterproof to keep you dry in the rain, like a regular umbrella. Not to mention, reviewers say that it’s sturdy and durable.
If you don’t want to stash it in your purse after it gets wet, it comes with a small carrying case with an adjustable strap you can swing over your shoulder or across your body. Outside of the bar scene, it would be great for stashing in your backpack to use between classes or in your work bag so you can show up at 9 a.m. and still look completely fresh.
This mini umbrella comes with a small price tag, too. It regularly costs $16.89 on Amazon, but it’s currently on sale for $14.65 and $15.20 (depending on the color), and there’s a 5% coupon you can clip to save a little more at checkout. It comes in beige, black, light green, dark green, pink, lavender, blue haze (dusty blue) and sky blue, so you can get one to match your overall aesthetic.
If you’re the mom of your friend group, you’re probably already adding this to your cart. But if you’re not, do yourself a favor and think ahead: How great would this little umbrella be for the next rainy weekend?
