Which umbrella is right for me?
Posted on 25th February 2022 at 17:21
Different styles of umbrellas are better suited to different lifestyles, that’s obvious enough!
But that said, we all have several aspects to our lives, probably with a few contrasting hobbies and sides to our personalities...
For example, on Monday morning you could be hotfooting it to the office in the big city, but on Saturday you could be on your way up to the Lakes for a day of unbeatable fresh air, views and hiking.
To help you decide which Lake District Umbrella Company Umbrella is right for you, or which are best for certain activities and lifestyles, we thought we’d put together this handy blog.
We’re pretty confident that our small yet perfectly formed selection of quality classic umbrellas lend themselves to most eventualities and events, so they’ll definitely be one (or two) for you. And as we have new stock arriving within the next few weeks, now is the time to decide which brollies you’d like to buy.
All our Lake District themed umbrellas have slightly different features, and we understand how important it is to know what you’re getting before you purchase, so keep on reading to find out…
The busy bee
If you’re someone who leads a busy lifestyle where travelling light is important, The Coniston is ideal for you.
This compact yet sturdy brolly is our telescopic umbrella, which sounds complicated but simply means an umbrella that can be made shorter, and therefore be conveniently stored in a backpack, handbag or briefcase.
Due to its handy design, The Coniston has the smallest of our umbrella diameters (except for our children’s range). This means that while it is a sturdy brolly, it’s best suited for showers and using while you get from A to B, rather than protecting you from a torrential downpour for hours on end! But this makes it perfect for the school run, for commuters, students and many more.
The Coniston will be available in classic navy and radiant orange, each with a subtle nod to the beautiful Lakes with our jetty logo.
The suave stroller
For those who are style conscious and prefer the most classic things in life, The Derwent umbrella is just right.
This is our most traditional offering here at The Lake District Umbrella Company, as it features an elegant birch crook handle design and a metal tip.
Slim, sleek and suave, The Derwent umbrella looks seriously at home on leisurely Sunday countryside strolls and during coffee shop visits. It also looks fabulous on hallway pegs (as seen below by The Green Cumbria) and in an umbrella stand, although rest assured that this strong yet sleek umbrella is by no means a prop.
The Derwent has a generous diameter of 103cm, and will be available in understated grey, cobalt blue, zesty bright green and hot pink, all with our signature jetty logo.
The athletic adventurer
If you’re an active person who is partial to spending hours outdoors in all weather, look no further than The Windermere golf umbrella.
This is our biggest brolly, with a huge diameter of 130cm, so it can definitely be relied upon for keeping you and your equipment nice and dry.
The Windermere’s design is slim and sporty depsite its impressive size, so it’s never a pain to carry around. It also works well as a walking pole on flatter hikes, and the automatic button means you’ll be sheltered in seconds when the heavens inevitably open.
The Windermere will be available in classy black, bottle green and rich burgundy - colours that won’t date to go with a reliable umbrella that will keep you dry for years to come.
The mini meanderer
Finally in our collection of Lake District themed umbrellas is our children’s range.
The Puddle Duck umbrellas are cute child sized brollies with crook handles for easy grip, and curved ends to protect little fingers.
Although made for your small explorers, the Puddle Duck umbrellas have a generous 89cm canopy, and are functional as well as fun.
These children’s umbrellas come in sky blue, bright red and hot pink.

We hope we've helped you decide which umbrella (or umbrellas!) is/are right for you and each facet of your lifestyle.
Whichever Lake District Umbrella Company brollies you pick, you are guaranteed well made, stylish and totally functional umbrellas that will give you a little nod to the beautiful Lakes, wherever you are in the world.
