The weather has been lingering in that 40-50 degree rainy and windy season and I'm just about sick of it. However, if I had an umbrella like this, perhaps I wouldn't complain as much. Super awesome, Brelli umbrellas look like the pretty Asian paper parasols but have useful features such as UV protection, biodegradability, wind protection, and transparency. My favorite is the standard clear variety, but I'm starting to like the grey as well. Putting it on the wish list.
