The 10 Best Unbreakable Umbrellas
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in February of 2018. Many umbrellas are only capable of keeping their users dry in calm conditions, as strong gusts can turn them inside out or snap their ribs. Fortunately, there are unbreakable models, and we selected some of the toughest. These will protect you from the elements even during heavy winds, and should stand the test of time. We made sure to include a variety of looks to suit most tastes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Nobody wants to add one more item to their umbrella graveyard, so we made sure our selections boast features that will keep them in fighting shape after plenty of storms. Though there is no truly unbreakable umbrella, the models on this list have features that bring them pretty close to indestructible, like highly durable materials and bend-resistant technology. For example, the Blunt Metro 82744 has a high-tension canopy that won't budge when heavy rain droplets pound down on it; the LifeTek Premium has steel, aluminum, and resin hardware for an extremely tough frame; and the Security Umbrella City Safe can withstand the full weight of some individuals without bending or breaking.
When you're inside and no longer need weather protection, you probably don't want to be stuck with an oversized item. That's why we included the Rain-Mate Compact and the Repel 2000, both of which pack down small enough to fit into carry-on suitcases, most backpacks, and even some purses.
Should you want your umbrella to be both stylish and functional, you may like the classic Collar And Cuffs London StormDefender, with its elegant curved handle, or the Urophylla Wind-Defying, which comes in a few sophisticated color options.
