This wiki has been updated 26 times since it was first published in December of 2017. An outdoor umbrella will protect you and your friends from the harsh rays of the sun, but it will need a sturdy cover to prevent it from fading and protect it from the elements when it’s not in use. Our selection features durable options that come in neutral shades to complement any backyard decor, as well as vibrant choices that will add a touch of flair to your patio. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 16, 2020:

The Classic Accessories Ravenna joins our list today and, like the Classic Accessories Veranda, it features self-supporting vents that ensure proper airflow throughout. It’s made of a tough woven polyester with a durable laminated layer underneath to protect its contents. This one is designed with handles to help make installation a breeze, and its dark color ensures dirt won’t show easily. For a design that looks quite different from most of the others on our list, we added the vibrant Nest & Nook Striped, which boasts an attractive chevron zigzag pattern that will add a pop of color and some style to any backyard environment. It’s conveniently available in two sizes, so you’re likely to find one that accommodates your patio umbrella. You can purchase it with confidence, thanks to a money-back satisfaction guarantee.

For a lightweight, yet tough, design, it’s hard to go wrong with the Island Umbrella Winter, which is made with a high-quality spring-loaded cinch that closes securely around the bottom to hold it in place, as well as a breathable build that helps prevent mold and mildew from building up on the inside. It comes with a handy storage pouch. From a company also known for its sturdy car covers, the Duck Covers Elite repels water as effectively as its namesake animal does. This one comes with an attached wand that helps people of all heights attach it easily to an umbrella. For a model that can be left outside year-round, check out the Petask Patio, which can stand up to all sorts of inclement weather like a champ, including rain, frost, snow, and more. Its tightly closing drawstring helps keep it from blowing away in the wind. In this update, we removed the Scorpiuse Banana, the material of which is rather thin, and also the C-Hopetree Deluxe, the bottom cinch of which can come loose easily.
