Premium Umbrella Corp Umbrella
Great Umbrella with Tons of Style
Even though the release date is set for "5/7", I actually own this umbrella (if you pre-ordered Resident Evil 6 - or one of the enhanced versions [i.e. I ordered "Resident Evil Anthology" for the PS3 so I could have d/l versions of RE1 - 5 Gold] from the Capcom Store, this was the bonus item). It's much stronger and sleeker than the smaller/cheaper Umbrella Corp umbrella that Capcom has offered up until now. You can actually see the criss-crossed weaving of the the fiberglass on the pole as well as the ribs of the umbrella.
Another nice feature that isn't mentioned is that in comes in an umbrella-tight sleeve that includes a strap on it (and also features the Umbrella Corp logo and name). This might not seem like a big deal, but when you move from a wet area to a dry one, you can simply fold up the umbrella, slip it into it's sleeve and it won't get raindrops everywhere. Plus the strap allows it to be hung over a chair or shoulder when not in use. With the addition of a well crafted handle as well as a solid end-piece on the umbrella (it could be used like a cane but I wouldn't advise it), it's great to see Capcom bringing this product to the open NA market.
