Editor's Notes

June 12, 2019:

There are few things more frustrating in bad weather than having your umbrella invert on you. You're stuck battling it while the wind whips against you, making it even harder to restructure your accessory. Once you do put it back in working condition, the underside is all wet from the rain and probably dripping on you. We made sure each of our umbrellas has features that should prevent that catastrophe from ever happening again.

The Procella Golf not only has a flexible frame that won't break in high winds, but it's been proven to sustain gusts up to 46 miles per hour, and boasts a mesh inner lining that helps this even better weather a storm. The Saiveina SV1258 has a generous 16 ribs, giving this just the type of stubborn structure you want when winds pick up. Meanwhile, the frame on the LifeTek Traveler FX is made of a robust combination of aluminum, resin, and steel, making it ready for anything. Since we know lugging an umbrella around can be cumbersome to begin with, we also looked for some convenient features that add to portability. The sleeve on the Koler Golf Oversize has a shoulder strap, so you can carry it much like a purse when you're not using it. Meanwhile, the Zooblu WindFarer, Balios Prestige, Repel 2000, and LifeTek Traveler FX pack down so small when collapsed that you can put them in most backpacks and bags.
