Everyday we are out and about in the elements. Perhaps heading to work, going shopping or off to a meeting. Undoubtedly at some point you also will have been caught in a Spring downpour. Sitting in damp clothes for the rest of the day is certainly no pleasure but it is avoidable with some preparation. My recommendation, the new Tornado umbrella from Fulton. A stylish, functional accessory, it’s perfect for keeping you protected from any Spring shower that appears by surprise.
Established in 1956, Fulton are the largest supplier of quality umbrellas in the U.K. They use only the highest specification materials, designing them to top engineering standards before hand finishing. Personally it is a brand I’am very familiar with. In particular, iconic models such as the Chelsea and Stormshield are instantly recognisable. They provide a range that is varied and strong, catering for the city worker to the avid golfer. Fulton really are specialists in their field so for me it was a pleasure to check out the new Tornado umbrella.
The Tornado is the latest technical development from Fulton, using high specification components to produce a robust, practical item. Picking up the umbrella it felt fantastic in my hands. At approx 545g it has a strong presence yet is easy to carry around. In addition, it’s compact yet sturdy size is equally as impressive. At 37cm long when closed, it fits neatly under ones arm and conveniently into most bags. As someone who also travels for work the Tornado is perfect for putting into a weekend bag. It doesn’t take up much room and is ready to go when you are.
Holding the Tornado I found it very soft due to the EVA comfort grip foam handle. Speaking of the handle, here you will also find a button. With a simple touch it opens and closes the umbrella quickly should you be caught by a surprise downpour. This is a feature I love as too often you can’t get the umbrella up. Once fully open you get a true sense of why this item is exceptional. A 120cm span canopy delivers maximum protection. Inside, durable polycarbonate joints in Fulton brand green add reinforcement. Additionally these are supported by eight reinforced polymer ribs for extreme strength.
Add in a vented canopy and you have as much wind resistance as technically possible. Indeed these design features also ensure that should the umbrella turn inside out, then it will do so without damage. Simply pressing the button on the handle will return the Tornado to its original shape.
For me the Fulton Tornado also looks as great as it works. It’s sleek minimal wrap cover in black and green trim looks sharp. Easily securable it is finished with the brand crest. Indeed there is no need to worry about what you are wearing either. From jeans and a leather jacket to a three-piece suit, the Tornado goes with everything. Just stick it under your arm or in your bag and your good to go.

Hard work and research which clearly comes through in this latest creation, one geared towards keeping you dry. Furthermore it is an umbrella which is great value for money. At £32.00 you are getting a high quality item. A little piece of engineering perfection. One that will last. Whether you are attending a festival, commuting to work or going sightseeing, the Fulton Tornado is the perfect accessory.
