The nubrella is an Alan Kaufman invention which is "worn with a harness, and closes around its user like a clear, private cocoon, guaranteed never to turn inside out". Seems like a brilliant idea and it does make the wearer look sophisticated in it. And it is effective to avoid your hair from getting wet, or allows you to talk on the phone without having to hold an umbrella. However, it's not that effective to cover the wearer from head to toe. Expensive suits will surely be drenched in the rain and that brings about the question as to how convenient nubrellas are.
