Cheeky Umbrella

Cheeky Umbrella founder Jen Zurowski never even owned an umbrella before she moved to the notoriously rainy city of Vancouver, BC on the west coast of Canada. After searching high and low for an umbrella that would stand up to the wind and rain, and yet still reflect her style and personality, the idea for Cheeky Umbrella was born.

Cheeky Umbrella's products are based on a belief in embracing and enjoying the rain. Each umbrella is designed to brighten a rainy day with: stylish designs that make you look and feel good, sassy statements that bring a smile to your face, and strength to keep you dry and protected.

I live on Vancouver Island in BC and the rain here is intense. It is always raining and is windy a lot. Its basically something that you just learn to suck up. I have never found an umbrella like Jens's Cheeky Umbrellas.

Of course, nothing puts a damper on a rainy day than a broken umbrella, so quality is a top priority for them. Each Cheeky Umbrella is made with an aluminum shaft and fiberglass ribs that make it light to carry, yet strong and flexible in order to withstand the gusts and downpours of the wettest cities. The umbrellas are also made with pongee fabric that is durable, fade-resistant and quick-drying, as well as soft to the touch. The simple pushbutton function on each umbrella makes it quick and easy to open, and the hook handle is comfortable and slip-resistant. We believe so strongly in the quality of our workmanship and materials that they offer a Lifetime Warranty on all our products.

How does a lifetime warranty make you feel? It tells me without even seeing the umbrella that its great quality. After seeing the umbrella I so agree. The quality is like nothing I have ever seen. Seriously I won't ever have to buy myself another umbrella. The best part of this umbrella for me, other than the quality, was the cute little saying on the inside. Mine said "This is shopping weather." They have a quote to suit everyone!
At just over $40 these umbrellas are a great investment. Its the only one you will ever need. Cheeky Umbrella has offered my readers 10% off of their purchase until the end of the year. Use code FUNKY to get your discount!
