It started on a rainy day in Seattle, watching person after person walk by with an ugly umbrella, a boring umbrella, a broken umbrella, or no umbrella at all. How did the umbrella fall so far that it was barely more stylish and functional than holding a newspaper over your head? So, we decided to change that by designing an umbrella that’s stylish and durable. An umbrella that helps you look great and stay dry. An umbrella you’ll actually be happy to carry as long as you like getting compliments.
We’ve since launched a series of other products meant to accessorize your life — pouches, leashes, mugs. And all follow our design approach of creating things that sit at the intersection of style and utility. No compromises. We get there by focusing on the details that matter: premium materials, high-quality craftsmanship, custom color combinations. Things that look great and work great. Fashionable and tough. Sleek and durable. That’s the new definition of luxury.
This is my second Certain Standard umbrella. I loved the first so much that I decided to invest in a second. I initially bought the small umbrella because of the size - I wanted something a little smaller/easier to carry etc. And, I never thought I would say this about an umbrella, but I sort of just fell in love with it. The cork handle is ingenious. It's very well made. I have yet to use it in really high winds, but it seems much more durable than any other umbrella I've had.
I first bought a Certain Standard umbrella last year for myself and was very pleased. It's a high quality product and I've used it for a year with no problems. It's lightweight, looks great, and of course most importantly keeps me dry! I especially love the cork handle. After my cousin commented on how much she liked it, I bought the large yellow version for her birthday and she loves it too. I plan to keep it in mind as a great gift option for anyone who loves a stylish accessory.
This is a REALLY well-made umbrella! Not only do I feel super stylish carrying it, but it honestly has changed my opinion of umbrellas - which I always thought were just cheap and almost disposable. This umbrella is top-notch. The cork handle makes it great to carry. The wind doesn't blow this sucker away. And the size is awesome. WELL worth the money. I LOVE it.
I've been loving my new umbrella, from the design through to the form factor. The color is unique and vibrant, and I frequently receive comments from strangers about which company makes the umbrella. I really like how Certain Standard has set the bar for this quality accessory and I would enthusiastically recommend this product to others!
I've been looking for an umbrella that goes beyond the drug store options and this fits the bill. The color is beautiful in person and goes well with all my rainy day jackets. It's a fun pop of color on dreary days. I
Its such a nice easy to carry lightweight umbrella! Great in bad rain and crazy windy weather..def recommend!
High quality of construction and materials. I love the cork handle! The scale is perfect - large enough to provide good coverage/protection yet still light weight. I'm very happy with my purchase.
Where I live it is likely to rain at any minute. Great to have an umbrella that is large enough to keep you dry but also allows you to be of help to someone else too. Love the design and the fact that it's easy to let up and down. Classy and stylish, too
I've been in some very heavy rain with this thing too and it completely held up. No questions about it, FIVE STARS!!
Really great product, highly recommend!
