What is the uniform regulation for use of umbrellas?

Female Marines may carry an all-black, plain standard or
collapsible umbrella at their option during inclement weather with the
service and dress uniforms. It will be carried in the left hand so that the
hand salute can be properly rendered. Umbrellas may not be used/carried in
formation nor will they be carried with the utility uniform.
