Over the years I have owned many umbrellas. Some have gone missing and some have broken from wear and tear. I hated when one of my favourite umbrella gets broken especially when it is raining cats and dogs. I am not the only one who is having the same issue. My daughter has this beautiful puppy dog umbrella and I noticed the fabric on the umbrella was tearing from the frame. The best people who know about umbrellas are from or living in our beloved British Columbia. Jen Zurowski, owner of Cheeky Umbrella, understood how important to own a good quality umbrella when she lives in a place that pretty much rain most of the year. I had a co-worker who had to fly over to Vancouver to meet some clients. He was there for 4 days and unable to do much sight seeing since it rained the whole time he was there. He had the umbrella pretty much glued to his hands.
I dont drive so I am very dependent on public transportation. When I am trucking my two girls around I have found one regular size umbrella is not enough to keep us dry. Then it occurred to me to purchase a golf size umbrella. I turns out they are harder to purchase than the regular or compact size, pricey and plain black.
I had the opportunity to try an umbrella from Cheeky Umbrella and so far it has done a wonderful job keeping me and the girls dry. Cheeky Umbrella sells high quality umbrellas that are built better than your regular ones. They believe in their quality of their umbrella so much that there is a limited one year frame warranty. It also comes with a 30 days warranty for the fabric and sewing. Can you believe that? That has never been heard of. I call that great customer service. They listen to their customers and strive to provide the best umbrella as much as possible. Cheeky Umbrella has raised the bar in the umbrella industry and I have not hear any others that could provide the same customer service. Get this! Can't find what you are looking for - you can customized with Cheeky Umbrella, pretty awesome.
I have chosen the Red Floral Golf Umbrella which I absolutely love. It came to the office and two of my co-workers was raving how pretty it is. When I purchase a umbrella I want it to be fun and pretty. I try to avoid black umbrellas unless it has cute cartoon motify or an interesting design. We all work so hard to try to match our shoes and purse to our outfit but why not the umbrellas.

Does this not scream a must have umbrella? This is one quality umbrella I have ever owned and would come in handy in the coming months. If you have someone who is hard to shop for, try purchasing an Cheeky Umbrella because I bet they never have owned a good quality umbrella before. There is another reason why I have chosen a Red Floral Golf Umbrella, my husband would not borrow it because it is mine...all MINE...bahahahaw.
