Knirps

Maker - Mary Hunter

Knirps

Maker Story

High and Dry

To tote or not to tote? Umbrella strategy is tricky. Full-size models aren’t worth carrying except when it’s really pouring rain, and the compact versions are never really compact enough to keep in your bag at all times. Plus, after a rain shower, there’s no ideal place to stash a drippy umbrella. Until now. The X1 Pod is changing our perception of the compact umbrella.

Created by Knirps, a German company, the X1 Pod is a truly compact umbrella -- without sacrificing quality or functionality. When it’s closed, the X1 Pod measures just 7 inches long and fits into its own sunglass-style case (no more drips in your handbag). When it’s open, it has a generous 37-inch canopy that stands up to the rain and the wind.

Over the last 80+ years since founder Hans Haupt created his first compact umbrella, Knirps has earned a reputation for solid German engineering. The company also stands out for its unique graphics. Vibrant, colorful prints turn everyday umbrellas into design statements.
