Stylish Birdcage Umbrella by Fulton (actually a big deal)

In England, it rains nearly every other day. So, when it comes to brollies, the British need the best. Since 1956, that means umbrellas manufactured by Arnold Fulton (the largest supplier of umbrellas and rainwear accessories in the UK).

Their stylish and iconic Birdcage design is a favorite amongst the Royal Family. The large canopy completely covers the head and shoulders while still providing clear visibility with its transparent PVC covering.

The Queen of England loves this thing!

Fulton supplies the Birdcage Umbrella to the Queen of England and is allowed to officially promote and advertise this relationship as "holding a Warrant to Her Majesty The Queen". This is the royal equivalent of a product endorsement and is a really big deal in England.

So, when we saw the Birdcage Umbrella and the fact that it's good enough for the Queen (who probably spends many a day greeting people outdoors), we decided to check it out. This ain't no cheap plastic umbrella. The Birdcage Umbrella is tough, sturdy, well-designed, and stylish.

You shan't be disappointed, old chap!

No more devoured thumbs!

Fulton invented and patented their Easy Glide Open & Close mechanism. Instead of impaling your thumb on a thin piece of metal to collapse your umbrella, you simply slide the canopy open or closed. Because the action is so smooth, the whole umbrella doesn't jerk closed (threatening to take out your eye), but instead is easy, quick, and safe.

Durable, long-lasting, resistant to wind damage

Every Fulton umbrella is engineered to minimize the risk of damage in wind. By creating additional flexibility in the frame, stress on the ribs (as well as the potential for damage) is greatly reduced.

The adult version of the Birdcage Umbrella employs heavy duty fiberglass ribs. The child's version uses metal ribs.

Rounded ferrules = safe!

The caps at the end of an umbrella are called ferrules (learn something new everyday, right?). To prevent cyclopsing (yeah, it's a verb now), Fulton smartly made their ferrules from soft and rounded plastic.
