Best Umbrella For Wind is very nice product. After doing a fair amount of research on travel umbrellas, I settled on the Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella. It arrived per my expectations and was appropriately packed.

The unit appears to be of reasonable quality, although I haven’t used it very much yet to see how it does over the long haul (provided I don’t lose it!). Best features: 1) The fiberglass ribs – I expect these to hold up better than the typical lightweight and highly bendable ribs that are found in drugstore umbrellas. 2) The Up/Down button – I normally expect an umbrella to have button or switch that opens it. The “Down” part of the button was pleasant surprise.

It makes retraction of the canopy so much faster and easier. Getting into a car after walking across a rainy parking lot is much easier. However – be forewarned – if you hit the Down button while the umbrella is overhead, you get the shower you were trying to avoid! I’ve only had it out in the rain once so far.

There wasn’t much wind, so I can’t comment on that aspect of this umbrella. It did provide expected coverage for the size of its canopy, and as mentioned above, it is easy to open and collapse. Great product!
