Challenge has finished
When was the last time you bought a 'good' umbrella? One that could withstand the wind, shield you from rain at various angles, and you didn't feel silly for carrying around? Considering the rainy weather in various global locales this time of year, I've selected umbrellas for the inaugural challenge of this series.
