"The Ultimate Rain Repellent"
RedEye - May 12, 2008 - Pg 39
Rainy days in the Windy City mean endless bobbing and unruly black umbrellas. Well, Chicagoans, here's a new product to aid in your multi-tasking walk to work. No longer do you have to shuffle your umbrella with your Blackberry and your briefcase and Venti Chai Latte.
The Nubrella seems like a good idea, though I have to admit it looks strange. Perhaps just because they're new and different. I think its kind of odd to harness your umbrella to you, but if it keeps you dry and allows you to accomplish more on that soggy morning walk, more power to you.
