Review + Giveaway: Lavsuca's Pink Label Umbrella Wet Bag

After many years of guessing when it rains, I have surrendered to nature. It's always the same: when I bring an umbrella, it doesn't rain; when I don't bring, it rains. I should have known. I would never win. So now, I bring an umbrella everywhere I go, even though it may be a tad heavier.

That would make thing better wouldn't it? Not really. Now the problem comes when it rains and the umbrella gets wet and as a result, my bag, clothes and shoes get wet. And not to mention, the floor and the seats if I'm on the bus or train.

I don't always remember to bring an extra plastic bag to keep it in. How about those free bags that shopping centers distribute outside their main doors? Well, I don't always head to the mall when it rains, so I don't always have access to them.

So what can I do when it rains and I haven't a single bag to keep it in?

You know those wet bags that are used for diapers and other baby stuff? They are designed to keep the wetness in while keeping all other things in the bag dry and clean.

Well, recently I discovered a similar wet bag that is designed just for umbrellas.

This umbrella wet bag is shaped to fit most foldable umbrellas. It measures about the length of an A4 book, is narrower at the base and wider at the top to suit a variety of handles. As the image on the right shows, a drawstring keeps the umbrella in place while it is in the wet bag.

Wet bag 1
The bag is made of cotton while the inside is lined with Procare lining, which gives the bag its 'waterproof' quality. The seams are heat sealed, so there's absolutely no leaking.  Best of all, it's machine washable and reusable, so no more environmentally unfriendly plastic bags! The umbrella wet bag comes in a variety of designs, so it is easy to find one that suits one's taste and style.

Wet bag 2
Together, they fit well into any bag. It is extremely handy to have a wet bag around as when it rains, I no longer have to worry about a dripping wet umbrella, or go in search of bags to hold it. I just need to keep it into its very own wet bag, then when I reach my destination, I just need to take the umbrella and wet bag out to dry. Extremely convenient in keeping the wetness out.
