The Teflon coating on the canopy stands out. It sheds all the water allowing you to fold and store the umbrella immediately after coming out of the rain.

Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella Review: Best for Wind - by , July 17, 2021
4.7/ 5stars


The umbrella is an excellent investment for daily and travel use. It keeps you dry during a storm, and your belongings remain dry when stashed in a handbag or backpack. However, we found it a little short as our feet, and lower part of the legs still got wet.

The details

Given the consistent storms, it’s important to have a strong, portable umbrella at hand, and Repel’s Double Vented Windproof umbrella is a befitting buy. Its nine-rib fiberglass construction and the heavy-duty Teflon coated canopy enable it to withstand strong winds, snow, and rain-pounding weather.


If your experience with cheap umbrellas hasn’t been pleasant, this double-vented windproof umbrella may change your story. Unlike other umbrellas with six or eight ribs, Repel fits nine fiberglass ribs on this umbrella, allowing it to withstand strong gusts of wind. The double-vented Teflon coated canopy has a heavy-duty construction that resists water, keeping you dry even during a heavy downpour.

Opening mechanism

The umbrella has an auto-open and auto-close button that helps you open and close the umbrella quickly. The feature is handy when getting on and off a taxi, bus, and other transportation forms. The umbrella comes equipped with an ergonomic rubber handle that provides a firm grip and prevents it from slipping when your hands are wet.


When fully expanded, the umbrella is 42 inches long, but you can fold down to 11.5 inches for easy storage. This length is pretty modest if carrying it in a handbag or a backpack as it’s no longer than a carry-on bag.

Value for money

The umbrella is a bit pricey, but given its high-quality construction, it’s worth every dime. What’s more, the fabric doesn’t get soaked regardless of the downpour.

Final verdict

Repel Windproof Umbrella is your ultimate buy if looking for a durable umbrella that can withstand strong winds. What particularly impressed us was its ability to shed off the water thanks to the Teflon coating. However, you may find it a bit pricier than regular buys, but it’s a valuable buy.
