Hot on Taobao: Star Wars Lightsaber Umbrella

Hot on Taobao is a monthly segment where we feature a product from Taobao our editors think is cool.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... The planets of Guangzhou and Shenzhen are known for their subtropical monsoon climate. Heavy precipitation is common during the wet season, which runs from May to September, and in this galactic quadrant a well-crafted umbrella is essential for surviving the frequent squalls.

Equip yourself to battle the downpour with this lightsaber bumbershoot, which lights up with the distinctive red glow of Lord Vader’s laser sword (or blue, for those who shun the Dark Side).

The canopy, once open, is generously wide, allowing you to walk unhindered through the elements as if the Force itself is shielding you from the rain. The outside of the canopy prominently displays the iconic Star Wars logo, while the inside boasts long white streaks inspired by the films’ famous hyperspace scenes. A power button at the bottom of the lightsaber hilt illuminates the shaft, powered by two AA batteries.

This umbrella is sure to keep you dry while en route to catch the newest Star Wars anthology film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is... currently not impressing audiences across China. But whatever.

May the Force be with you on your quest to stay dry and look fly!

Star Wars Lightsaber Umbrellas are available for around RMB388 on Taobao.
