Convenient folding umbrella for sudden rain.
However, folding umbrellas are small in size, and on wet rainy days, your arms and shoulders get wet.
There is also a large size folding umbrella, but it gets thicker when stored. It's bulky even in a bag. Another disadvantage is that it is heavy.
"Alterna Slim 60" was born to solve the disadvantages of a slightly larger folding umbrella.
The "Alterna Slim 60" is about 106 cm in diameter. Even if the height of 170 cm is large enough for use.
The area covered by a common parent 55 cm folding umbrella is 25% larger than the area covered.
The "Alterna Slim 60" has a slim style of approximately 35 mm when stored.
Since a general folding umbrella is about 50 mm, it has become 30% slim.
A common folding umbrella has a three-tiered structure.
The "Alterna Slim 60" has been redesigned to have a foldable structure, and by arranging a part of the umbrella frame in parallel, the storage thickness is designed not to spread outward.
The “Alterna Slim 60” weighs only 162 grams.
If it is an umbrella using carbon fiber material, there are about 140-150 grams in the same size, but carbon fiber is not suitable for large size folding umbrella because it is easy to break.
The “Alterna Slim 60” is a combination of aluminum and glass fiber, and has a large size and elasticity.
The fabric used in the "Alterna Slim 60" is woven from a thin thread of 15 denier that is also used in stocking. Because it is woven with thin thread, it is finished in a thin and light fabric.
Umbrella fabric is produced at the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified plant. We are producing in Taiwan with a global certification system that aims to eliminate the harmful effects and harm to human body.
The Alterna Slim 60 is not only thin and light. We conduct an inspection that blows the wind with a wind speed of 15 m / s against the umbrella and confirms the evidence of a third-party inspection organization that it did not break.
[Caution] Wind resistance inspection is conducted by gradually raising the wind speed. Unlike a very general natural situation, the umbrella frame may be broken by a sudden wind during strong winds or storms.
The long-lasting coating is "Easy-Dry". By modifying the water repellent into fine particles of nano class, the water repellent coating penetrates deep into the fiber, making it difficult to peel off.
