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.
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.
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.
