Bizarre ‘umbrella jacket’ on sale for £11 – but you’d have to be bold to wear one

Everyone hates having to wrap up and carry around a soggy brolly when it’s raining outside.

Umbrellas are a nightmare to be honest. They go inside out in the wind, and it’s basically impossible to hold on one for long before you lose it.

Now Britain is set for more thunderstorms with “intense downpours” predicted in some areas – so you better make sure you’re prepared.

Luckily for you, some absolute genius has come up with a solution that doubles up as an umbrella AND a jacket. Amazing.

Would you wear this?

Ah, the British summertime

This is the very eye-catching “Umbrella Jacket”. It would definitely attract some looks.

Going for a bargain price of £11 from Blue Crate , the two-in-one brolly and jacket claims to be the “ultimate weather protecting product”.

To avoid the abject misery of getting soaked, it features a waterproof hood and large flying saucer-style shield across your shoulders to protect you from raindrops.

You simply pop it over your head and have nothing to hold on to. The only downside is you’ll look completely ridiculous.

Very handy indeed

There’s different colour options to suit your preferences: pink and blue.

According to the Blue Crate website, it leaves you “hands free”.

This is ideal for reading your book or looking at your phone while you’re on the go.

The umbrella jacket is available in small, medium and large and is rated with four and a half stars on the website – according to over 2,000 orders.

That’s right, over 2,000 people own the umbrella jacket.

Maybe a regular umbrella would attract less attention…

In other umbrella-related news, a British holidaymaker was impaled by a beach umbrella while sunbathing in Jersey Shore, US.

A gust of wind lifted the umbrella and it speared the 67-year-olds ankle, pinning her to the floor.

Emergency crew had to cut the woman free with bolt cutters and take her to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Police say she is “recovering well”.
