The Blunt Umbrella Lite  is the most useful urban stick umbrella you can ever own - it's their smallest stick umbrella. It won't blow inside out, and the leather hook handle makes the Blunt Lite nice to hold too. 


Because of its moderate size, and light weight, the Blunt Lite seems to be just right for getting in and out of cars, and on and off public transport, and negotiating busy footpaths  - and keeping you dry in between. 


The Blunt Lite is a small-ish stick umbrella. Next largest size is the Blunt Classic -which is great for walking the dog. If you need an umbrella for two people standing in torrential downpour, we recommend the Blunt XL or (Blunt's largest umbrella) the Golf G2 

  

Blunt Umbrellas are a unique new approach to umbrella design. They won't break, tear, or turn inside out, and are beautiful to use and behold. They're named because of their blunt edges which are bereft of sharp pointy bits that snap and poke people's eyes.


There's a different strut structure, and telescopic ribs which distribute wind force evenly along the edge of the canopy. 


At the end of each bendy strut there are little springs rather than the usual vulnerable threads. It all leads to a lack of stress points and it offers safe shelter in winds up to 100km/hr. As the Wall Street Journal said (2/4/2011) : "structurally the Blunt umbrella somewhere between a suspension bridge and a NASA space probe."

  

This umbrella is a constant joy to open. It's a manual umbrella without the normal little annoying metal locking clip. There's an ergonomic plastic collar which glides easily and positively to open and close. It feels good. 


New Zealand engineer Greig Brebner invented the Blunt after getting sick of being poked by umbrellas whilst working in London. That was in 1999. It's taken this long for successful mass production. He's now based in his native Auckland.   

  

The Blunt Lite Umbrella is a pro environment statement against junky umbrellas that break and get thrown away. It's an umbrella for a long term relationship.
