Here’s a better way to weather bad weather: the Blunt Metro XS. This sleek, chic umbrella keeps you dry and won’t poke anyone in the eye. Stylish and compact for easy transport, the sturdy Blunt holds its shape in blustery conditions. And, true to its name, it has rounded tips, not spikelike points, so it never transforms into a windblown weapon.
