An umbrella can protect you from rain and sun without obstructing cooling airflow. Lots of outdoor adventurers use umbrellas but few standard umbrellas survive more than a few bush trips – they're just not designed for rugged use.
Eberhard Gobel has been making the world's best umbrellas for more than 90 years. They've added Advanced DAC Alloy technology to their iconic trekking umbrella which is now available to the Australian outdoor adventurer.
Features a comfortable foam grip and strap, UPF 25 sun protection (blocks 96% of UV radiation) and the super strength of advanced DAC alloy in the shaft.
These umbrellas are one piece and not folding like other "trekking" umbrellas. Helinox found on field testing that folding umbrellas are more compact for stowage but the added complexity reduces the robustness. Helinox believe that first things must work reliably and they recommend the solid shaft umbrella where reliability is the prime consideration.
