There’s a joke that every walker knows, which sometimes actually turns out to be a fact. When you carry an umbrella, it won’t rain, but if you forget to carry one, it’ll rain. On the other hand, it usually feels like a total waste when rain is predicted and it fails to rain. So, to be on the safe side, you need to carry an umbrella whenever you suspect that the weather could change, which also means that you need to have comfortable walking umbrellas.
Of course, if the weather takes a turn for the better, you might be better off spending the day lounging on one of our branded deck chairs!
You need an umbrella that won’t collapse or invert during a stormy rainfall, otherwise you’ll be drenched. For these reasons, choose a walking umbrella that is wind-proof, especially vented umbrellas that’ll balance the pressure out, preventing an umbrella from collapsing.
For a seamless and comfortable walk, you’ll need to invest in an umbrella with a great grip. Usually, such umbrellas have non-slip handles with the traditional crook handle grip or other ergonomic designs. Although classy, little knob handles tend to be a bad choice for walkers, since they become uncomfortable after just a few minutes of holding them. This is why printed golf umbrellas work so well - they usually have a moulded or rubberised grip.
Golf umbrellas have larger canopies, which offer maximum protection, and better grip for a comfortable walk. Unfortunately, they are harder to carry rolled up due to their size, making them ultimately inconvenient to carry when not in use. On the other hand, compact canopies are very easy to carry around and easily fit into small carry-on bags, but often have tiny, uncomfortable grips, and small, shallow canopies that aren’t effective enough when shielding a user.
Walking umbrellas should be made of high quality materials that are scratch-resistant, and have lower wear-and- tear value. This is because they’re constantly placed on surfaces when we rest, hence should be made of tough material that can withstand the environment. An example of our high quality material can be found on the printed parasol range at Umbrellastore - they last for years!
With these facts in mind, you can buy customised walking umbrellas for anyone, but specific groups mentioned below would appreciate the promotional items more than others.
We’ve definitely had sporting activities within our estates, which most of the time only require a walk to a field that’s a stone throw away. We’ve also noticed people within our neighbourhoods who stick to their evening walks no matter the weather. In both situations, a creative business can take part in the activities by supplying customised promotional walking umbrellas, as they market the business.
Large corporations often have offices based across multiple buildings, where employees sometimes need to move from one wing to another in order to access their colleagues’ offices. Your business can be a part of these campuses, especially if you’re an associate, by gifting these employees with customised walking umbrellas that they can use to shuttle across offices within the campus.
