A couple years ago, I embraced a new approach. I bought an expensive umbrella. This ShedRain WindPro one, actually. It was a navy blue colour called Heather, but despite the feminine name - I still felt manly whilst using it to shield myself from the elements. I paid around $40, so I figured that losing this umbrella would be more difficult. I would pay attention to its whereabouts, because it was something of value to me. No longer disposable. It is a great umbrella. It's not huge, and is insufficient to fit two people underneath, but it fits nicely in a backpack, not taking up much space, so I can always have it with me. Together with this umbrella, we fought storm after storm. No gust of wind or spray of precipitation could defeat us... Sadly though, Heather met her demise. True to her strengths, she stayed open to the end...but that was her defeat. Her closing mechanism had malfunctioned, and she would not collapse. I was gutted.
I sent an e-mail to ShedRain to try my luck with the lifetime warranty.Read more ›
Overall, if you're in need of a good umbrella, this product is the way to go.
The reality is that it doesn't protect from wind much better than a regular umbrella. At winds where a typical umbrella might turn upside down, this one does as well.
I'll keep it as a regular umbrella, as the automatic open and close is very convenient and works well. But when I know there's going to be wind, I'll break out the gustbuster instead.
Not a big deal since it stops the bulk of the wet, I'll probably just add a layer of scotch guard to it or something.
The flexible plastic used in the frame means that this umbrella becomes inverted quite easily in heavy winds, generally whenever the vent is not adequate for the volume of air being blown up into the umbrella. A 25 mile-per-hour gust lasting more than a few seconds often had this effect. Fortunately, nothing was broken or damaged thanks to the same flexible plastic construction. It was also incredibly easy to set the umbrella right again. In a matter of three to five seconds, I could quickly turn the umbrella upside down, press it against the ground, and be back in action. I eventually learned a smooth maneuver that would make Stefan Urquelle proud: You place the edge of the umbrella on the ground as you walk and gently apple force to the edge, turning the umbrella right-side-out again
without ever breaking stride. I recommend practicing this either when it is not raining or while wearing a bathing suit. Unfortunately, this trick did not make me as popular with the ladies as I had hoped. Apparently no one wants to stop and talk to you in the middle of a gosh darn hurricane. People can be so rude... No umbrella is truly windproof. If you aren't completely stupid and just want an umbrella that will survive the wind EVEN when it gets turned inside out because YOU KNOW it's going to happen, this is a great choice. The flexible design even makes it fun and easy to shake out because of the elastic popping effect it has.Read more ›
