5 Umbrellas That Cost More Than $25

And no umbrella should ever cost more than $25.

If you leave your house this weekend only to get caught in Hurricane Joaquin, you may want to make a pit stop for an umbrella. If you do, though, we don’t recommend ducking in for shelter at these shops–an umbrella from these retailers will cost you quite a bit more than $25. You’re better off stopping in at a CVS for a cheap umbrella to do the job, or just embracing the weather in all its misery.


While they may be the king of outdoorsy apparel, this umbrella’s $108 price tag at Filson isn’t very wallet-friendly, even with the fancy maple wood handle.


The bamboo handle on this may look like a relic from an estate sale, and the $140 price might have you thinking that this is a worthy antique. It is, however, just an umbrella sold at Massimo Dutti.


Though this Longchamp model has been “created for braving the rain,” according to the product description, so have other umbrellas, which don’t cost $210.


We cannot deny that the available patterns for this Hermes umbrella are pretty. But are they $640 pretty?


This $805 Louis Vuitton umbrella may not be made of solid gold, but the handle is made of cowhide and the canvas material blocks 93% of UV rays, which will be extra handy when sky is filled with rain clouds.
