April Fool? No, bullet-proof umbrella is for real

Here are Large Parasols we get excited by anything in the world of parasols and umbrellas. So imagine our enthusiasm when we heard about French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s bullet-proof umbrella. Yes, you heard us right. We couldn’t believe it either. The Para Pactum is coated in Kevlar, with some silver and kevlar thrown in the mix too. The end result is an umbrella that can, resist amongst other things, knives, acid, rocks. Unfortunately it can’t help Mr Sarkozy improve his popularity in France which is currently at an all-time low. See the full story about the bullet-proof umbrella. If he’s after just a simple giant umbrella to protect him from the weather, we’ll give him a shout.
