The dark rain clouds have us thinking about upgrading our umbrella game. While we prefer the compact models that slip easily into a day bay, our age is calling for a long handle, domed canopy option. The “elite’ model from the Davek New York collection may fill the bill. Featuring a leather stitched handle,zinc alloy accents and a fiberglass shaft, the Davek Elite will work well in any rain or wind storm. The unconditional lifetime warranty helps seal the deal as well. Available online in copper, navy, and black from Davek direct and other fine retailers for $149.
