In summer, all parts of the country have entered the rainy season, and the southern region is affected by typhoons from time to time. It is windy, rainy and sunny. The problem of bringing an umbrella or not is particularly embarrassing. How can I choose a good umbrella? How can I use my umbrella more comfortably? How can we maintain etiquette when using an umbrella? Nihon Keizai Shimbun wrote an article and gave suggestions for purchasing umbrellas by Hiroshi Sanada, the vice chairman of the Japan Parasol Promotion Association.
Hiroshi Sanada, vice president of the Japan Parasol Promotion Association, pointed out that when it comes to umbrellas, there are many types: long umbrellas, short umbrellas, two-fold umbrellas, three-fold umbrellas, etc., which are commonly used in daily life, but which umbrella is more specific. Appropriate is determined by your actual situation such as height and whether you often go out and so on.
Long handle umbrella is more suitable for tall people
In the days of typhoon or heavy rain, long umbrellas with a total length of more than 70 cm will make people feel more reliable than the short handle umbrellas and mini umbrellas used daily. This kind of umbrella can better protect in wind and rain. The human body is not wetted. But if you walk in a crowd, this kind of big umbrella is easy to fight with other people’s umbrellas, and the water dripping from the umbrella can easily wet other people’s clothes, causing unpleasant friction. Therefore, the long handle umbrella is more suitable for tall people. Recently, a birdcage-shaped umbrella with deep drooping umbrella eaves came out. It is favored by many people because it can better shelter from wind and rain.
If you walk with a long umbrella and always feel exhausted on your wrists and shoulders, you should consider the possibility of a mismatch between your height and the length of the umbrella. At this time, you may wish to change to a shorter umbrella or a folding umbrella. Oh!
Sunny and rainy dual-purpose umbrellas are more convenient to use in summer
In the summer when the sky was still clear and the sky was full of clouds, and the rain was pouring in an instant, it couldn’t be more convenient to carry a rain or shine umbrella with you. The so-called rain and sun umbrellas refer to umbrellas made after UV protection processing on umbrellas, or umbrellas made after waterproof processing on sun umbrellas. Comparing these two umbrellas, the latter is not very resistant to heavy rain, and it will leak when the rain is strong. If it is used in places with heavy rains or typhoons, it is best to choose the former.
In addition, the “shading umbrella” that can block 99% of the light is popular among the rain and rain umbrellas. It has a stronger effect of preventing infrared, ultraviolet and visible light than general sun umbrellas. There is also a “heat shield” that can block heat, which is suitable for hot weather or people who often go out for business.
How to choose a good-looking umbrella according to your actual situation?
Don’t underestimate the decorative effect of the umbrella on the human body. Under normal circumstances, people who like to wear gray clothes are best to use dark blue or black umbrellas; people who often wear dark blue clothes can use beige umbrellas; people who wear brown clothes can choose green umbrellas; people who wear simple clothes You can choose a printed or gorgeous umbrella. If you want the color of the umbrella to match your clothes, you may wish to open the umbrella and take a photo in front of the mirror when you buy it.
Umbrellas are dangerous in typhoon days, raincoats should be chosen when the wind speed reaches 10m/s
When holding an umbrella on a rainy day, in order to prevent the rain from getting wet, generally people will face the umbrella in the direction of the rain. It is not easy to splash water and get wet on a small walk. However, if the wind speed is above 10 meters per second, it is not suitable to use an umbrella. Not only the umbrella is easily damaged by the wind, but also the use of an umbrella on a windy day will increase the risk. At this time, it is best to choose a raincoat with a hood instead of an umbrella.
When you enter public places such as buses, subways, shops, etc. after using your umbrella, you should pay attention to the etiquette of using the umbrella, and do not drastically throw off the water on the umbrella to prevent the rain on the umbrella from splashing others. At this time, you should use the umbrella cover, roll up the wet umbrella and put it into the umbrella cover. If it is a long-handled umbrella, you should buckle the umbrella with an umbrella buckle and hold the umbrella vertically to prevent the umbrella from being pierced by others.
In addition, the umbrella is assembled from 40-50 parts. As long as one part is damaged, the umbrella is basically scrapped. Therefore, you should be careful not to turn the umbrella while holding it, or open it all at once. After using the umbrella, it should be dried and stored properly after rolling, so as to increase the use time of the umbrella.
