The Nicest Umbrella I've Ever Used: Davek
I was recently given a Davek Duet Umbrella as a gift. These are the Rolls Royces of umbrellas, and if you ever need to give a rather lavish corporate gift, they for you.
The frame is "Carbon WindFlex" -- made of a flexible carbon polymer ligaments to prevent breakage or rib distortion in strong winds. Handles are finely stitched, with a black and silver zinc alloy material and polished silver clip.
The umbrellas are extremely well made, very strong, and made with what appears to be high-end materials. They come with an unconditional lifetime replacement guarantee. Break it, you get a new one. Lose it, and the company allows you to replace it at half price.
The Davek Solo model, with a 43 inch canopy, currently retails for $99. The Davek Duet, with a golf-sized 55 inch canopy, retails for $149. They are carried at high end luxe stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and Takashimaya.
