The details

Since an umbrella flipping inside out is one of the worst things to deal with during a downpour, Repel Umbrella has come up with an innovative double vented design that helps keep its shape even in strong wind. It also features nine reinforced fibreglass ribs that withstand the strongest gusts and are designed to give, not break, preserving the shape of your umbrella in extreme weather.

A Teflon coating lends a waterproof exterior to the umbrella, and helps shed water quickly once you’re ready to dry off. It also comes with an automatic open and close button for quick, one-handed access.

You can shop the Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella on sale now for $33, rather than its usual price of $36.

Other reviewers have been impressed by this umbrella's performance in inclement weather, since rain easily "beads off" and it "feels very sturdy" even in high wind. 

However, some reviewers have found this umbrella to be slightly on the small size, that hasn’t affected its performance at keeping them dry.
