The Monster Factory



Leading gift company The Monster Factory presents the Down Underbrella, the must-have accessory for those in sunny climates who occasionally miss a cooling downpour.

Feeling the heat? Burnt out? Well, as a global pop songstress once (nearly) sang, ‘you can stand under my Down Underbrella –ella – ella.’ Featuring a light-weight chrome shaft, ergonomically shaped handle and wood-effect tip, the Down Underbrella acts as the perfect parasol and portable sun shade, but when a heatwave strikes and you find yourself dreaming nostalgically of a grey day in Grimsby, at the touch of a button results in a personal and perfectly contained rainstorm, to instantly refresh and reinvigorate, without splashing your surroundings. With three settings – light drizzle, heavy rain and monsoon the Down Underbrella will never disappoint.

The Down Underbrella has a 92cm deep nylon canopy designed to protect the user from the elements, come rain or shine. It is available in six stand-out colours including bright white, caramel and flamingo pink and has a powerful automatic opening mechanism, activated at the push of a button.

The Down Underbrella makes the perfect present for ex-pats, globe-trotters back-packers and sunburnt Brits abroad – or indeed anyone with a tendency to overheat the moment the mercury starts to climb, so whether you’re soaking up rays on the beach, having tea in the sunshine, or braving a hellish commute, the Down Underbrella means you can effectively manage your own micro-climate making sweat patches and red faces a thing of the past.
