I don't like to get wet when I'm not supposed to be. I would make a good cat. Expecting a rainy spring season, I was prepping my rain boots and rain coat. But I found my umbrella lacking. I found this one at Target for a very good price. And I love the design... it offers so much more protection, is more windproof and I can see where I'm going when I use it. Plus I love the name - bubble umbrella. Win, win, win.
