Unnecessary for ninjas
by Toby Garcia (5 out of 5 stars)
January 16, 2014

The idea of an umbrella is useless to a ninja, where typical training regimens begin with dodging raindrops. But for the average person, it does serve to keep water off of the body under the mysterious guise of a katana. The only problem that an average person will likely encounter is the dark alley mistake of assuming they possess greater martial prowess than kraft macaroni and cheese diets have provided them, and in a fantastical bout of imagination, attack any and all who look shady or dress like pirates. Maybe this would prove fruitful to nearby old ladies and children were the blade not made of fiberglass, shrouded in umbrella, and, not a blade at all but more closely resembling a padded stick. There is a hilt though, so cheers to wrist protection...but then again ninjas probably have seamless muscle and bone masses rather than wrists, so useless to a ninja once again.

No, the power of this item, much like the power of a ninja, is in it's appearance. If you maintain your composure and exude confidence as you walk into Walmart, through dark alleys, or any shadowed precipice suited to house evildoers, the Samurai Umbrella's sleek hilt will do all the talking for you.

Cuts through the rain like a rabid Samurai
by Amazon Customer (5 out of 5 stars)
July 10, 2015

Cuts through the rain like a rabid Samurai! Probably my favorite purchase from Amazon. Every time I take this out for use in public (where it rains), I always get curious looks and sometimes a question or two. Everyone leaves happier. I don't see too many umbrellas out there improving people's moods.

Aside from the looks, the product itself is durable and effective. I've had it for a couple of years now and have not had any major issues. The only problem I had is that the tip near the top broke off at some point, probably because I was leaning on it or smashed it into something in the subway. For the price, some would say that's unacceptable, but whatever. The way I see it, I would have gone through 5 or 6 $10 umbrellas (probably more) during the time I've had this so it's giving me more value than I'd expected. It's also large enough for two people to get under it so that's an extra umbrella saved right there.

The carrying case it comes with is also handy - just throw it over your shoulder and everyone automatically gives you respect as if they fear your life-taking skills. If only they knew.

Love it. Absolutely love it.
by Timothy M. Daniel (5 out of 5 stars)

This umbrella is amazing. Simply put, I could not be happier.

Pros:
1) When it's on your back, from a distance people always think it's a sword. I've had two police officers so far ask me about it. They're typically pretty cool about it, and one even said he was gonna buy one himself.
2) The umbrella itself is quite sturdy. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and right now we're gettin some nice stormy weather. Lots of wind. So far in roughly a week of use it hasn't turned inside out once.
3) On BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) people will glance over at me and inch away. Amazingly useful for morning and evening commutes on packed trains.

Cons:
1) The sheath. It's holding up OK so far. But it's going to come apart, it's just not made to last that long. But that's not that big of a deal, because I've already come up with a solution.

My solution to the sheath: Essentially it's a hard rubber tube that fits the umbrella snugly. It did take some machine work to make it the perfect length and to drill holes to attach the strap, but I'm happy with it.

Also, it adds to the look of a sword with a hard sheath.

Plastic okay, fabric not
by TurdFurgy (2 out of 5 stars)
August 31, 2012

Upon receiving this umbrella the first thing I noticed is that there were many loose threads. What that tells me is that the product will not last long and will probably start to leak in the near future.

The hilt is made out of a decent plastic. It feels cheap, but is sturdy enough and looks good from a distance. I feel that the hilt is too long. The hilt-to-umbrella ratio is off making it look a bit awkward in person.

The open release button is not on the hilt. That means you have to reach over the big hand guard to open the umbrella which isn't that big of a deal.

The opening mechanic feels nice and has a satisfying feel when you open it.

It comes with a little fabric sheath that you can put the umbrella in and carry on your back. I do not recommend using it as it is too snug for the umbrella and it appears that repeatedly putting in and taking out the sword would wear down the poorly put together fabric on the umbrella.

One thing you need to decide before you buy is whether or not you are confident enough to carry around this umbrella as it feels somewhat like a toy.

That said, it's a neat idea and I can't wait to test it out.

Great for White elephant
by NightFallBishop (4 out of 5 stars)

You ever seen men past their prime fight over who would get an umbrella? Do you want to? If so, this is the product for you! I originally bought this for a family white elephant exchange, thinking no one would want this and that I would be able to get this. Yeah....that didn't happen. So this year I'm looking to order another one in hopes of making it mine again.

Seriously!!! this is the 2nd of these and each had the same issue ... after a few uses they would not close correctly then the frame tore the material itself; then ready for the dumpster (again)

Great as a gift for those who enjoy Japan Culture.
by Hayak (5 out of 5 stars)

Probably the intention is to look as one of those Japanese Ronin back from the Edo period, but be careful when showing this to people!

The Umbrella is as it is described. Compared to some feedback, it is not as difficult to handle; i would like that the straps were longer so it would be easier to put this on the back or that it would be practical enough to be put on the waist, but overall it's great.

I have had no issues with the umbrella not being resilient enough thus breaking and can stand relative strong winds without bending.

Fun, but...
by Evan (4 out of 5 stars)
July 17, 2011

Maybe it's just me. But when are you seriously going to use this? As a wall ornament, great, as a product you go out in public wielding, kind of strange unless you're looking for trouble.

Regardless, it seems to be a quality umbrella, although I suspect the hilt design may not last an incredibly long time. The carrying case on the other hand is very cheap, the cloth doesn't hold straight without the umbrella holding it in place, making this a little awkward to pull out, and fairly awkward to put away if you're wearing it over your shoulder. And I'm not sure where else you would wear it.

Awesomeness
by Christopher Baker (5 out of 5 stars)
January 28, 2014

I already had one that I lent to a friend who lost it. So I bought two more. It's sturdier than most umbrellas considering I can hold on to it with a vice grip in extremely high winds and it gives no hint of folding upwards. You can even feel the strength of it when you open it (the force of it makes it tug away from you). Great quality inside and out. And it looks cool.

I'd also like to mention the first one I had was thrown out of an 8 story window because I was too lazy to go back upstairs and it was pouring. Only thing that broke was half the guard (then i took the other half off) and the locking part got kind of wonky. And yet it was still completely usable (I kinda liked it better without the guard actually. considering breaking it off one of my new ones).

Needless to say, this thing is pretty damn durable.
