WHAT OUR CRITICS SAY

"Structurally, the Blunt falls somewhere between suspension bridge and NASA space probe"

The Wall Street Journal

Real Simple "We Found It: An Umbrella for the Long Haul

When I think back on a decade spent commuting to work, I shudder to recall all the flimsy umbrellas I've bought, used a handful of times, and left in crumpled, broken heaps in Manhattan trash cans. (All that walking amounts to 2,600 morning slogs alone—not to mention dozens of sudden downpours.) So it felt like the skies parted when I came upon Blunt's Metro umbrella, which keeps me bone-dry in rain, sleet, and snow without hoggingtoomuch sidewalk space.

Condé Nast Traveller says Blunt is the "Most Durable umbrella"

This heavy-duty umbrella stands up to even the strongest rainstorms, and offers supreme coverage thanks to its patented wind-tip rounded edges. It’s built with a 360-degree spinning canopy which prevents it from breaking when dropped or knocked over. It’s extremely wind-resistant and has been tested  by the brand to withstand the winds and rains of a category one hurricane (not that they recommend you put it to use in those conditions).

Dame Traveller says "No umbrella out there is better made than a BLUNT umbrella"

No umbrella out there is better made than a BLUNT umbrella. We love the Metro, a small compact umbrella for easy travel.
