Umbrellas have existed for more than 4,000 years, and are still extremely desired without much variation of the product. The more modern pocket- umbrella was invented in 1928 and is used by so many people today. It was originally used to protect oneself from the sun, and is now more commonly used to protect from the rain. This simple handheld gadget allows you to remain dry through a rainstorm, without the discomfort of a heavy wet rain-jacket or hat. Instead of wearing layers to stop your skin from getting wet, the umbrella instead redirects all of the water away from you- which is the ultimate desire of someone walking through the rain.
