British summertime just isn’t the same without rain, puddles, mud and more rain. Luckily we’ve already got our eyes on our number one summer saviour for festivals, washed out barbecues and picnics, the cheesy, flashy and kinda sci-fi Ella-Ella LED Umbrella (eh eh eh, sorry).
Viewquest has created an umbrella that’s big enough to keep you sheltered from the rain but also has a flashing optical fibre shaft, which glows in six different colours, great for Star Wars or Blade Runner fan boys and girls. The base of the handle also has a really powerful torch that you can tap on and off, so it’s perfect for stumbling back to your tent if you find yourself lost in the rain, sleepy and in the dark at a festival.
