Does Your Umbrella Collapse in High Winds or Have Sharp Pointed Ribs?

A useful but safe umbrella design, or one that allows you to easily slip in and out of cars? For storms and severe weather, the windproof golf umbrella was considered decidedly better, but for casual use running errands in light showers, the foldable reverse umbrella is perfectly suitable and lots of poll-takers chose that one for style and ease of use.

Here are the results…

SAFETY WON 1st CHOICE- Athletico Automatic Open Golf Umbrella

For severe weather, every umbrella should have three critical safety features. Don’t put your safety at risk using an umbrella without them! First, wind vents are critical for stability and control. The umbrella should have protected tips, not sharp metal spikes. And finally, if possible the shaft should be fiberglass or other non-conductive material. The wrong one is more likely to grab the wind and sweep you into traffic, collapse and injure you, or even cause wrist strain from whipping about.

Von Says…

Sometimes a simple tool is all you need to get out an enjoy more of your days. Don’t let a little rain stop you from taking a walk, or allow a bright sunny day to chase you inside if you have sun-sensitive skin.
