Due to its slim dimensions and special materials, this umbrella is extraordinarily light. It only weighs 115 grams, which makes it lighter than a smartphone. At only 21 cm in length, it can easily be carried in a coat pocket. The compact umbrella can withstand wind speeds of up to 100 km / h without suffering damage. This durability is made possible by flexible struts which ensure that the umbrella’s metal structure will not break even if the canopy is turned inside out.
Statement by the Jury
As a distinct lightweight with a flat packing size, the Knirps Ultra Light Slim Manual is a handy travel companion.
