    Synapse 25 Umbrella Packing

    Ive purchased a new Synapse 25. What would be the best place to store an umbrella? The dimensions are 12.25x3.5x2.5, and I carried it in an exterior mesh water bottle pouch on my old backpack (from which it was constantly falling out).

    It fits in the bottom front pocket, but I was also thinking about keeping a 2 liter water bottle there. If the interior pouches are watertight, though, that might be a good bet. Alternatively, is it feasible to somehow strap it to the exterior of the bag?

    I’m able to slip my umbrella in the loop at the base of the bag, where you might otherwise hang a light. Usually I carry my umbrella in the main compartment but when it’s wet, I often slip it in the loop,

    I LOVE this umbrella. And they stand behind the lifetime warranty. After about 3 years of use (including 2 in windy Chicago), the auto close mechanism failed (it still opened w the spring and could close manually, but just didn't auto close...which is important once you get used to having the feature). I was going to buy the same umbrella as a replacement. But then I saw the warranty, shot them a quick note via Amazon where I had originally purchased the umbrella, and they sent me a new one no questions asked. So it's definitely my recommended umbrella now.

    Back to the OP question, I put mine in the middle water bottle pocket in the S25. (I usually do not carry a water bottle.) I usually shook it dry before packing it, or kept it in an umbrella bag if it was particularly wet so can't speak to the waterproofness.

    I'm not seeing a link to an umbrella. Seems like you had intended to add one.

    Hi @CaptJoe,
    I thought the last poster was referring to the umbrella that was the subject of the storage query in the original post of this thread and that post did contain a direct product link. Does that link not work for you?

    ETA: The product page refers to this as Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating - Black Repel Umbrella*
