April showers bring May flowers, and if you want to get through the month warm and dry then you'll need to have a selection of rain gear on hand. In addition to a breathable rain jacket and waterproof footwear, no rainy day attire would be complete without a durable and wind-resistant umbrella.

Now that wet weather has officially arrived, if you’re on the hunt for a new umbrella you may want to consider the Windproof Double Vented Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating by Repel Umbrella. Designed to withstand all kinds of wet weather, it’s a top choice among Amazon Canada shoppers.

The details

Since an umbrella flipping inside out is one of the worst things to deal with during a downpour, Repel Umbrella has come up with an innovative double vented design that helps keep its shape even in strong wind. It also features nine reinforced fibreglass ribs that withstand the strongest gusts and are designed to give, not break, preserving the shape of your umbrella in extreme weather.

A Teflon coating lends a waterproof exterior to the umbrella, and helps shed water quickly once you’re ready to dry off. It also comes with an automatic open and close button for quick, one-handed access.

You can shop the Windproof Double Vented Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating in a range of colours and patterns, all of which are available between $27 and $30.

Why shoppers love it 

Backed by thousands of five-star reviews from satisfied customers and an average 4.5-star rating, this compact, wind-defying umbrella has been called “a fantastic product” that goes “beyond expectations” for many customers.

“Living in a rainy part of the world, I've owned plenty of umbrellas, but never of this quality. It has a very sturdy metal frame, a comfortable, thick rubber handle, and it opens up at the press of a button! A fantastic umbrella!” said one one Amazon reviewer.

“Product arrived fast and as shown. Rain beads off and it feels very sturdy in the wind. Haven't used it in very high winds yet, but it feels like it can handle it. Lifetime warranty is what pushes this product over the rest,” added another.

Some reviewers have found this umbrella to be slightly on the small size, though that hasn’t affected its performance at keeping them dry.

“I'm giving it a five star review because it really is a great umbrella. It holds up to the wind and hasn't flipped on me yet. This one is great as it is compact and I keep it in my work bag, but would love to have a bigger one,” explained one reviewer.

The verdict

If a compact and durable umbrella is what you’re after, you may want to give this Windproof Double Vented Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating a try. Not only does it offer protection against the wind and rain, but it's also lightweight enough to travel with you throughout your day.

As an added bonus, it even comes with a lifetime warranty that shoppers have been thoroughly impressed with — meaning this might just be the last umbrella you ever buy.
