Why Amazon customers love this windproof umbrellaHearst Owned

Sick of your umbrellas always breaking in the strong wind? A windproof umbrella could be the answer. If you're tired of abandoning your broken brolly after the wind leaves it broken, there's one on Amazon that customers love.

The Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella is a best-selling umbrella from the retailer and has received thousands of glowing reviews from shoppers.

Available in 10 different colours and designs, the umbrella features a double-vented, wind-defying structure that makes it ideal for use in strong winds. It's just what we need during these summer storms.

Priced at £29.99 on Amazon, it's easy to open and collapse with one hand thanks to the automatic function.

It's compact too and measures only 29cm when folded and weighs less than 500g.

While most compact umbrellas are consist of six to eight aluminium ribs, Repel's design is fortified with nine resin-reinforced fibreglass ribs and a vented double canopy. This helps it flex slightly to ensure it withstands powerful gusts without turning inside out.

It's extremely packable for day trips, holidays or commuting, plus it's an affordable buy.

"The best umbrella I've ever had," said one Amazon customer.

"Weighs less than I expected but feels sturdy and well-made," another praised the product. "It received its first real test today in 40mph winds and driving rain and it passed with flying colours."

Meanwhile, one shopper added: "I have lost count of the number of umbrellas I have bought over the years that I have thrown away because they broke windy conditions. I bought this umbrella after reading the reviews and thankfully it has lived up to it's reputation."

Another reviewer said: "Love this umbrella! Pops up instantly when you press the button. Just make sure no one is standing close as it pops up really fast! The rain literally runs straight off which means with a quick shake it's almost completely dry so you can pack it away in its cover and put it in your bag without wetting all your contents."

As well as being a practical buy to carry in your bag for everyday errands or during a staycation, the windproof umbrella makes for a great gift.


It's not the only windproof umbrella Amazon customers are praising, either. The Ergonauts Windproof Umbrella has received hundreds of five-star reviews.

One Amazon customer said: "Who knew it was possible to wax lyrical about something as pedestrian as an umbrella?? This is a stunning piece of design that truly lives up to its name: it's an ergonomic answer to all the usual umbrella issues."

Another wrote: "Rather thankfully, I had a chance to properly test it out last week during a few days of squally showers (and one day of near-constant torrential rain) and I'm incredibly pleased to report that this is a tremendously good umbrella.

"I was doubtful that the 'windproof' claim was worth the paper that it was wrote upon, but as sure as rain, this thing really does work."

Meanwhile, another happy customer raved: "Over a year since I bought this umbrella and it’s still in great condition and it’s saved me on numerous occasions from a soaking!!"
