Best Windproof Umbrella

Looking for the best windproof umbrella? – well, the best windproof umbrellas in very windy weather are nearly always walking umbrellas. Although some folding umbrellas are vented, which gives them more strength, generally speaking a walking / full length umbrella is the best umbrella to carry with you on a windy day. Umbrella Heaven is the home of ‘Windproof Technology’ and you’ll find we sell some of the very best windproof umbrellas.

There are many approaches to designing the best windproof umbrella. Some people have designed aerofoil “stealth bomber” shaped umbrellas or “stealth fighter” umbrellas which can withstand extremely windy weather. You can see more and more of them demonstrated on the internet by people jumping out of aeroplanes with them or testing them in wind tunnels. We sell a version of this aerodynamic windproof stealth bomber umbrella ourselves – take a look at our Stormfighter Stealth Fighter windproof umbrellas – available as both a full length windproof umbrella but also as a folding, compact windproof umbrella.

Another approach to designing the best windproof umbrella includes making the ribs of fibreglass, which although doesn’t stop the umbrella from turning inside out, does make the ribs flexible enough to enable you to return the canopy to its normal shape without damage.

A double or overlapping canopy design, often referred to as a vented umbrella is yet another way of trying to create the best windproof umbrella. This allows the wind to escape through the canopy reducing the wind resistance of the umbrella.

Here above is our current choice for best windproof umbrella. Actually we couldn’t decide between the Classic Black Pagoda with it’s double-dome, twin-spoked frame, wind resilience technology and the new Stormfighter Stealth Fighter with it’s radical new angular delta shaped aerodynamic canopy. Both we give ten out of ten but for different reasons.
