Umbrella Hat $3 Free Shipping from Kogan

1390

Ladies and Gentlemen, the future is here. At least it would be if the year was 1880.

History lesson for those uneducated few:

The year was 1880 and while prospecting in Mexico, a handsome chap going by the name Robert W. Patten invented one of the most important pieces of attire in human history. I am of course referring to the Umbrella Hat.

Ever get annoyed because your normal umbrella is too big and jerks can get in on that action? Not anymore.

Ever feel as though you should be able to have your hands free to eat a hotdog that has been overpacked with relish, bacon and onion thus requiring two hands… In the rain? Now you can.

Ever feel as though when walking in pouring rain you are bombarded with men/women giving you their number because they want to as the kids say 'smack that'? That will never be a problem again thanks to this amazing Umbrella Hat for only $3 shipped from every Ozbargainer's best mate Sir. Ruslan Kogan.

    This should be the item of clothing worn at 'ozbargain meetups', so everyone can identify each other.

      But what about the Woodworm "3 for $26.99 shipped" umbrellas ?
      Surely we can have a meeting outside when its pouring down. I betcha we will get a huge discount on the food :D

        only 100 clicks? I can do it at 110 (with the officeworks 10% price guarantee)

      Good find. Seems exactly the same product, just different girls.

      •  

        The umbrella is bigger on the eBay girl.

        •  

          When on top of girls, Size matters..

        •  

          If you are talking about the size of the umbrella, the Ebay one is 21" and Kogan is 66cm which is 26".

    • +2 votes

      Thanks no_mercy, but not good enough for the veteran Ozbargainers. This one is cheaper!
      Also on ebay $2.67

    •  

      every1 I've looked at on ebay is 51-54cms. I bet Kogan have measured it across the arch rather than diameter and it will end up being the same size as the ebay ones.

      •  

        If you pay more, there are bigger ones like up to 74cm but was over $7. (Why am I wasting my time researching this??!!)
        I was thinking I could probably fold up my sombrero. It has a bigger diameter but just as colorful and effective. It also goes well with the fake mustachios for 95c from Meritline.

    Rain often comes with strong wind.

    Strong wind blows ordinary hats off. It'll surely blow an umbrella hat off. Design fail.

      Its held on with steel rivets fixed to your skull. A gale force wind might be sufficient to rip your head off, but otherwise you'd have very little to worry about.

        Or it could turn into a low tech helicopter hat (kite hat?) and turn you into inspector gadget. The future is here, and all for only $3.

    It is about time, we Westerners should STOP consuming these useless products.

    Another history lesson:

    • A month or so ago, Kogan had a price error on Samsung Galaxy S4 of only around $450, Kogan later corrected the error but not honoured the deal for people who have ordered it. Many OBers were pissed, beginning to neg Kogan and swear they won't purchase from Kogan forever ever again. Now Kogan started popping out cheap deal on cheap junks, some of these people appear to forgive and forget Kogan's recent sin. So the moral of the lesson is - People are greedy and dumb XD

      I really hope I never have to read a history lesson along the lines of "That sight OzBargain with the funny gag products on the front page? You used to be able to find actual bargains on there"

    Years ago, I bought a couple of these since they looked rather novel. Did draw a few laughs from others when I use them. But I found them really uncomfortable. Clamps on your forehead, and it weighs a bit as well. So I never use them again. That could be just me, and others probably find them ok.

    thanks for educating me now i can get a real job.
