The Find: an asymmetrical umbrella that’ll stand up to wind tunnels
In a world dominated by flimsy round umbrellas, the beautifully asymmetrical Senz is your best bet for staying completely dry this fall. Designed specifically to combat the annoying features of traditional brollies (which have a tendency to turn inside out at the slightest breeze and take out the eyes of unsuspecting pedestrians), the streamlined Dutch model can withstand 100 kilometre-per-hour winds and has eye-saving patches at the end of each point. It’s also won a ton of international design awards. If you’re not convinced, check out some of the demo videos online. The red ikat print makes for a chic autumn accessory, but you can also hunt down some other snazzy variations. $85

Would be great in Iceland where the rain tends to come at you sideways. Still, it’s 2014. We can put a man on the moon but when it rains we’re still holding a stick with a piece of cloth above our heads. There’s got to be a better solution – and I don’t mean one of those
little hats with mini umbrella on top.
