It’s easy to leave your umbrella at home when your only option is a three-foot-long behemoth that doesn’t fit in your work bag. But any time an afternoon thunderstorm rolls into town, you probably find yourself wishing you’d brought it — or had bought one to keep in your office as well.
That’s the real joy of a compact and lightweight umbrella: you can drop it into your briefcase, backpack or messenger bag and forget it’s even in there (until the next mid-day storm, anyway). This specific model from Snow Peak — one of our favorite brands — measures only nine inches folded, weighs just under five ounces and is designed to collapse during heavy wind gusts rather than breaking or ripping, meaning it’ll get you through the season and many more to come. Best of all, it’s on sale at Nordstrom for just $34 today — that’s savings of more than 30 percent.
