The Blunt UV umbrella is your year-round defence against the elements. Featuring a 50+ UPF rating, the canopy blocks 99% of UV light ensuring you remain protected against harmful rays, while enjoying the temperature reducing shade under the canopy during the summer heat.
And when the weather takes a turn for the colder and wetter, the Blunt UV umbrella keeps you dry without compromising on style or functionality.

METRO is the go-to umbrella for days where you're not sure what's on the horizon. It conveniently fits in your handbag, tote, or backpack so you're always prepared, whatever the weather.

An auto-open button pops open the canopy for instant coverage at your fingertips. Built with unique 360° spinning technology, the Metro's canopy is designed to elegantly handle knocks when navigating narrow spaces.

Please note, due to the nature of the UV fabric on the Metro UV models, creasing does occur.

Warranty: Blunt umbrellas are designed and built with meticulous craft and care to ensure they stand the test of time. They have a global 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

Cleaning and drying your Blunt umbrella:
When cleaning your canopy, use a clean cloth and some warm water to clear any marks. Make sure you keep away from any chemical detergents and bristle brushes as these can damage the material. Blunt canopies are not machine washable.
Make sure you dry out your umbrella completely to avoid any mildew or water stains forming. The best way to dry your umbrella is to leave it fully open. But if space is limited (or you're a little superstitious), your Blunt can be dried by standing it with the handle up and the canopy tie released.

While living in London and dealing with rainy commutes, Kiwi engineer Greig Brebner noticed how unsafe umbrellas were - being so tall, the spikes often poked him in the eye. He also noticed how umbrellas had become a throwaway commodity, mainly due to poor-quality materials and flimsy, outdated design.

So to save his eyes and reduce the number of broken umbrellas that end up as landfill each year, Greig set out to do something no one had done since 1928 - to re-invent the umbrella. And he began by re-designing the mechanisms.

Going right back to the drawing board, Greig married engineering innovation with no-fuss design styling to create something that exceeded even his own expectations: a ridiculously strong umbrella that could handle seriously wild weather.

After pushing countless prototypes to the limits in wind tunnels and on the blustery hills of Auckland, Greig finally did it. He'd re-invented the umbrella. And it just so happened to become the best umbrella in the world.
