The UZO Umbrella

We haven't exactly had April, May (or so far June) showers, but thanks to Tootsies, whenever they do arrive we will be prepared! Tootsies is now featuring the UZO umbrella, a masterful combination of functionality, art, and fashion. Who knew precipitation could be so glam?

The UZO designed by local engineer Ronald Obmaces, has an asymmetrical configuration, keeping the classic feel of an umbrella, but while providing new advanced coverage. So what does that mean? Well, my big umbrella pet peeve is that they always cover your top half, leaving your legs soaked. No more my friends. The design of the UZO keeps more of the body covered, so no more wet jeans. As if that wasn't cool enough, the frame is made with fiberglass reinforcements to make it strong and flexible, thus no embarrassing breakage when it's extra windy.

We just might get out of this draught one day, and when that day comes, I sure hope I have an UZO close by.

yeah I always seem to buy umbrellas that end up flipping inside out and being more of a pain than a help. I'll check this one out!
