An upgrade from the smaller Repel travel umbrella - well worth it.
does what it says
Constructed out of reinforced fiberglass coated in our special edition red paint, our durable frame is comprised of 3 layers of 8 ribs to survive strong gusts of wind and the test of time.
Prevents the umbrella from inverting during high gusts of wind with a vented mesh canopy that allows a passageway for wind coming from underneath the canopy, preventing a parachute effect. Canopy measures a generous 60”.
Repel umbrellas always use the latest technology available. The canopy is equipped with Teflon to repel rain, snow, dirt, UV rays, and other debris. The water beads on the canopy and the umbrella dries instantly with just a few shakes. The golf umbrella is also equipped with inversion technology that allows the frame and canopy to invert without the ribs breaking during extremely high gusts of wind!
The umbrella pops open quickly with just the touch of a button. The durable fiberglass shaft looks like real carbon fiber!
You are protected for life from the rain, sleet and snow, through our lifetime replacement guarantee program. If anything at all goes wrong with your umbrella, we will send you a replacement absolutely free, no return required!

I got this thing when I was in highschool, it’s been a few years since I graduated and this thing still refuses to let me down, aside from very minor issues like the wrist strap cord deteriorating over the years and the little nubs that keep the canopy on falling off every so often, which is as easy as just popping them back on the frame.
Lock still works perfect, auto spring works good although can be a little sluggish nowadays
As long as you don’t torture your umbrella, this thinks not gonna break anytime soon
(Minus the magic, attitude, garb, or singing voice.) But it is big and sturdy. The handle is quite nice, the stitching looks first rate, and it overall just has a nice solid feel without being over done. I'm hoping it lasts the couple of decades that it looks like it will.
A great umbrella even in heavy wind. I used it last week during a tornado warning. The wind was very strong, but not sustained. It would surprise you. A little bit, a little bit, then bam! A lot of wind. Almost came out of my hand. But I've got strong hands so I didn't join Mary Poppins. I could feel the wind try to turn the umbrella inside out and ruin it, but it never did. It was just a test to see how strong it was. I usually wouldn't use an umbrella in heavy winds - see reference to Mary Poppins - But it did great.
It did great in the rain.
I love the carrying bag - or whatever you call it. I just toss it over my shoulder and pretty much forget it is there until I need it.
A great product.
I bought a couple of the Repel Windproof travel umbrellas 5 or 6 years ago. They have held up well with occasional use and I love the self retracting mechanism and the water shedding coating.
I am going to a lot of my daughter's sporting events and needed something with a larger canopy as the travel umbrella wasn't quite large enough. Very pleased with the quality and the same water shedding coating. It is large enough to cutout the wind driven rain and I am very pleased I bought this. It isn't self retractable but I don't think it would work on a unit this large.
