Weatherman Umbrella

Rick developed a line of umbrellas called "Weatherman," which launched November 16, 2017.[4] After years in the field covering severe weather events, Rick couldn’t find an umbrella that met his standards. The result after three years of research, sketching, testing and more testing is an umbrella that stands up to extreme weather.[promotion?]
