Tired of wasting your money on umbrellas that flip inside out and tear every time a strong gust of wind goes by? Our new Windbrella has revolutionized the umbrella industry. Even in gale force winds, this umbrella will not turn inside out! The secret is it's innovative double canopy design where the mesh venting system in the lower canopy allows the wind to pass through while the upper canopy keeps the rainout. The reinforced fiberglass shaft is lightweight and provides extra strength. The ribs and spreaders under the canopy will not crimp, rust or bend out of shape. The nylon canopies are specially treated to resist fading and the impressive 62" arc offers plenty of protection from the elements. Since it comes with a limited lifetime warranty, this is simply the last umbrella you'll ever need to buy. Available in hunter/cream (shown), navy/white, solid black, balck/white, black/red, or red/white.

Folding WindbrellaFolding Windbrella

Finally, a folding umbrella that can stand up to just about anything! Based on our full-sized WindBrella, the double canopy design and mesh ventilation system keeps this umbrella from turning inside out even in winds of 50mph! Its compact size, however, allows you to stuff it into your briefcase or bag. When folded, the umbrella measures 15 1/2" long. Fully extended, the 35" arc offers ample protection. And unlike most umbrellas, the contoured handle is large enough for your hand to comfortably hold, while the attached lanyard offers additional security. Available in navy (shown), black, hunter green, burgundy, red, or tan.
