It has Feet! Stand Umbrella Review

We received so many page views and comments about Tsuboi’s Stand Umbrella, we thought high time to review it. 100% was gracious enough to send us one and it’s probably the classiest, cutest umbrella I’ve seen. Class and uber cuteness - is that even possible?

It’s a simple design. Imagine a typical umbrella made with high grade plastic and metal, oh and a little tripod foot too. Like its moniker indicates, the tripod foot stands the umbrella up. You might be thinking, “well that’s easy” but it’s not. And umbrella doesn’t have its weight evenly distributed from its center of gravity. I mean there’s a giant handle leaning to one side! The brilliance is in the engineering. Tsuboi and 100% made countless molds to determine how the support structure could attain perfect balance.

Aside from that, it operates just like any other umbrella. Push up to unfurl the super strong membrane and reverse to close. Standing under a hose to test what I call the “dryness factor - how dry I remain” scored the Stand Umbrella a perfect 10. It opens up to a huge wing-like mass making sure no drop hits you.

What we liked:

  • Minimal and clean. Comes in white and black.
  • High grade ABS plastic and aluminum construction.
  • Super lightweight.
  • Affordable - 4,200 Yen or $41 U.S. dollars.

What could be improved:

  • Nothing
