An umbrella can protect you from rain and sun without obstructing cooling airflow. Lots of outdoor adventurers use umbrellas but few standard umbrellas survive more than a few treks – they're just not designed for rugged trekking use.
Eberhard Gobel has been making the world's best umbrellas for more than 90 years. Helinox has added some DAC TH72M technology to their iconic design resulting in a very durable umbrella for trekking.
Umbrella One is the original Helinox trekking umbrella. The DAC alloy shaft provides great strength while keeping weight down (just 220 grams).
Useful for more than just rainy weather, the canopy features UPF 25 sun protection to keep you comfortable in direct sunlight.
Umbrella One features simple button-free operation, a packed length of just 63.5 cm and an open diameter of 97 cm.
For those hikers wanting a bigger shelter, Umbrella Two has a coverage diameter of 114 cm.
The larger area keeps you drier and moves perimeter drips further away from your pack.
Featuring the same UPF 25 sun protection as Umbrella One, Umbrella Two has a single large button to release the canopy and a packed length of 75 cm.
