Sure, it's pouring outside, but you're ready. You open your umbrella only to have it blow inside out almost immediately. If this sounds all too familiar, you might want to pick up one of the best windproof travel umbrellas. These umbrellas will keep you dry and save you the frustration of getting caught in the rain because your umbrella gave out yet again.
Though umbrellas might look the same today as they did 50 years ago, they've actually changed quite a bit. Now, the umbrella you bought for five bucks might not have many anti-wind enhancements, but these tough, all-weather umbrellas are made to last. From teflon-coated canopies to resin-reinforced fiberglass ribs, these windproof umbrellas are serious about keeping you dry.
When you have to venture out in the rain, it's best to look for umbrellas with a high number of ribs and a double-canopy. Basically, the more ribs, the more support. When you've got a ten-rib umbrella, it can hold strong against heavy rain or unexpected gusts. Then, a double-canopy allows wind to pass through without turning the umbrella inside out. Since wind is the number one umbrella-killer, this feature alone makes these travel umbrellas worth having.
If you're tired of your umbrella leaving you in the lurch, these heavy-duty umbrellas won't disappoint — and they're small enough for you to take them everywhere.
