Ditch your aging Totes and step up to the style and class of the Davek SOLO Umbrella ($95). As well engineered as it is good looking, the SOLO features a WindFlex Frame System that is reinforced with flexible carbon polymer ligaments and has a solid steel shaft to stand up to high winds. Its microweave, 190 thread count nylon canopy and water-repellent coating keeps you dry, and the terrific handle, made from nickel-plated zinc alloy, features a built-in clip for attaching to a bag or strap. Add in the 3-action button system and unconditional lifetime guarantee, and you've got one truly great umbrella.
Here's some more non-black luggage, this time from Oakley. The company's Tiger Camo Roller Bag ($180) comes in both khaki and black tiger camo, (it comes in all black as well, but who wants that?) and features an 18-inch telescoping handle, outer cargo pockets, lockable zipper pulls, an alloy ID badge, and more. Funky, functional, and affordable.
