“The Inverted Umbrella folds ‘inside-out’ after use to prevent water from being transferred onto the user’s clothing.
When folded after use, a typical umbrella is wet on the outside and can easily transfer water onto one’s clothing or other belongings. The Inverted Umbrella folds in reverse, so the dry inner side of the umbrella becomes the outside. This revised umbrella functions the same way as a typical umbrella when used for rain protection. The strength of the stretchers allow it to retain its normal shape. However, its inner structure enables the ribs to turn upside-down when the runner reaches the top of the stem.”
