With few exceptions, most umbrellas will blow inside out, an
that usually renders them mangled and next to useless. The
shafts, however, remain perfectly intact, and in the case of the
Doublebrella usable as a vital component.
When Doublebrella blows inside out, one simply
canopy along with its supporting struts, destroyed by the wind, then deploys the second one, which
until now been tightly furled in place on the shaft, waiting
for such an eventuality.
What I thought this idea would be from the title. +

||//but what happens when the second canopy also gets mangled?// see subtitle for hint.
||why the negativity? just curious
||I was expecting an umbrella that could survive
inversion, maybe with two handles, when I read
the title of this idea.
||There are many umbrellas that survive inversion... this one gets born again instead.
