Travel Gear: Umbrellas with great coverage

Special to the Los Angeles Times

Davek's travel umbrellas aren't cheap, but they're tougher than most mini-umbrellas and loaded with useful features.

The 9-inch-long Traveler ($79), weighing less than  1 pound, includes an auto open-close button system, a sturdy solid-steel shaft, reinforced seven-rib frame, a leather wrist strap, a built-in clip for attaching to a bag or belt loop, and a generous coverage diameter of 40 inches.

The 15-inch-long Duet ($149), weighing about 1.5 pounds, is an umbrella built for two, with a 55-inch-diameter coverage.

Info: On the Fly, (866) 880-8481.
