“It is the habitual carriage of the umbrella that is the stamp of Respectability.”—Robert Louis Stevenson

Our team at The Reader's Catalog searched high and low for an umbrella that was up to our editorial standards, until we found a company founded by a meteorologist. He had covered severe weather events for years but couldn’t find a dependable umbrella—a challenge we’re all familiar with—and he was shocked by such an obvious shortfall in an industry that’s been around so long. He used his unique expertise, merging engineering and design, to create a reliable, premium umbrella that won’t fall apart when you need it most. As the company says, this is “the best and last umbrella you’ll ever need.”

Now you can keep dry and show your love of the written word in even the harshest weather conditions with our sturdy and attractive The New York Review of Books Umbrella. 

Designed to withstand winds up to 55mph, this heavy-duty umbrella is no less convenient, collapsing to fewer than twenty inches. It expands from compact and slim to a wide, forty inch canopyenough space to cover two people comfortablywith the simple touch of a button. The industrial-strength fiberglass frame won't invert or break, and the vented canopy is cleverly designed to cast off any residual moisture. Our bright red The New York Review of Books logo pops against the chic black canvas, eye-catching but not ostentatious, with a 360° reflective trim for high visibility in the dark, a must-have for the stylish reader. 

No matter the weather, you'll stay comfortable and dry with our The New York Review of Books Umbrella, and you'll be the envy of your well-read friends and any passersby. 

11.8" length when closed; open canopy diameter 40" tip to tip; 50" full arc; 1.36 lbs.
