No doubt when your child plays soccer on the west coast, you will get wet.  I’ve spent 8 years out here on the sidelines and this is my preferred umbrella!

Here’s why I love this particular umbrella:

  • it’s clear, so you can see all the action from underneath your bubble
  • it comes down lower than most, so it protects your face from the biting winds
  • it’s compact, so you’re not continually whacking others in the face

It’s also great for walking to school for these reasons!  You can get this type of umbrella just about anywhere!  Mine is Joe Fresh from Shoppers (bought with my points, of course).
