Have tried a similar approach when testing my Birdiepal umbrella for 
BackpackGearTest.org. I could never get my head around using the umbrella 
whilst bushwalking but.

I think Shane (one of the testers) came up with a pretty good arrangement 
which allowed him to use the umbrella hands-free.  I think he wrote it up 
in one of his reports. Details at <http://www.backpackgeartest.org/birdiepal/>.
