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.
