Hard to believe, but most umbrellas can withstand rain but not the wind. That umbrella that protects you from downpours becomes a useless accessory if it collapses in the breeze. These models are impervious to all that Mother Nature throws your way.
Teflon tough Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella
The Repel umbrella opens and closes automatically with one hand and with the press of a button. It's magical! A rubberized grip hand ensures you keep a firm hold, and nine resin-reinforced fiberglass ribs stand up to gale force winds. Add in a Teflon-coated polyester canopy, and you get an umbrella that is immune to wind and rain.

If you want our recommendation
Our absolute favorite windproof umbrella comes from Repel Umbrella. We can't brag enough about the Teflon-coated polyester! It's not just water-resistant like other umbrellas, but 100 percent waterproof. The construction is wind-defying, the handle comfortable, and the price tag reasonable.
If you need to be hands-free, you can't go wrong with the Sharpty Reverse Umbrella. The unique C-shaped handle slides over your forearm so you can take care of business while staying out of the wind and rain.
And if you want a classic model, the Balios Prestige is in a class all its own. With the real wood handle, windproof double canopy, and auto open and close, this is a beautifully made umbrella that works as good as it looks.
