Romance is definitely in the air with the Tandem
Umbrella. Designed by Jasmine Rasnahan,
this umbrella promises to let couple cozy in together while walking in the
It is a great idea, but has a few inherent flaws. What if a couple is mismatched, in the height
department? Suppose the guy is a towering 6 feet and over, while the lass is
closer to 5 feet? Would pose some serious problems...

companionship, of shared moments, of shared human contact, the umbrella would, I
think, put in more distance, and not less.
A standard umbrella forces the two people sheltering under it to lean

you get to be closer to a friend. The tandem
umbrella sadly, takes away this inherent characteristic of an umbrella.
Still it's a great idea, for lovesick couples. You can buy this at Amazon.
