Christmas is rapidly approaching and we all know what that means: it's going to rain. So what better way to survive a Kiwi summer than with a Blunt umbrella, the Kiwi invention developed by Greig Brebner that's designed to stand up to Wellington-esque conditions, won't poke anyone's eyes out and has been coveted by the likes of Wired and Men's Health. We've got two of the virtually unbreakable XL numbers in blue valued at $110 to give away to a couple of lucky StopPressers and, because New Zealanders love nothing more than talking about the weather, all you have to do is tell us about an occasion when a bad dose of it ruined something, be it a wedding, a shoot, a bar mitzvah or maybe even a base jump.
