    Dyneema umbrella?

    Lots of rain lately in South Florida
    Would be nice to have a durable, lightweight umbrella
    Dyneema is strong enough for sails, how would it do in a rainstorm?
    Tom Bihn quality stitching and reinforcement would make it last.
    Just a thought....

    And a good thought it is. I'd love an ultraviolet one.
    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!

    I think it's a great idea, actually. Solar would be perfect; it' a shame it's gone :-(

    Add wind vents (Texas is gusty!) and I'm in.

    The compact size would be best for most to stick in a bigger purse or in the side pouches of a car door.
