#1667: BrollyBurst

When it’s raining and blowing a gale, the streets are quickly littered with the fragmentary skeletons of inverted umbrellas.

Today’s invention is an umbrella which, when it is about to blow inside-out and wreck the frame, has panels which simply separate, as shown.

Since these would be held together like the lips of a resealable plastic bag, all the user would then have to do would be to retire to a less gusty doorway and reseal the edges.
