golf umbrella Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy golf umbrella, right? No!

Pull Quote

Regardless of size, no umbrella will keep you dry from head to toe, especially not if there’s a breeze.

Our 201interview with umbrella guru Gilbert Center revealed a sad truth: Most—though not all—umbrella making is outsourced to generalist manufacturers, often to the detriment of quality. That fact was backed by our dive into online reviews and retail offerings, which revealed an alarming number of cheap, physically identical umbrellas available under multiple, rarely well-known brands. It also revealed an alarming similarity and positivity in “user” reviews. We’re on record as skeptics of this phenomenon. Armed with this background information, we were able to develop some key criteria to help us narrow down the field of qualified contestants.

Materials and design don’t vary much between brands. All use a synthetic fabric—polyester usually, or nylon—for the canopy. Some boast an additional quick-dry coating of Teflon (although we’ve found this doesn’t make much difference in practice). The ribs and shaft are usually constructed from steel, aluminum, and fiberglass, either alone or in combination. “Aluminum” construction is sometimes seen as a weakness, probably because of the metal’s association with soda cans and cooking foil. (“Stay away from it,” said Rain or Shine’s Levee. “What’s better is steel and fiberglass.”) But that could be an unfair generalization. After all, if you’ve ever taken a commercial flight, you’ve trusted your life to critical components (like wing ribs and roots) made of aluminum by a process not functionally different from that used to make soda cans, but on an incomprehensibly larger (and epoch making) scale. What matters is the quality of the design and production, and the specific alloy employed.

Warranties also matter. Many budget brands offer lifetime or other attractive claims, but make the return shipping and documentation so costly and bureaucratic that it’s not worth the hassle. We favor well-known brands with simple, reliable return-and-replace programs, even if that means a slight premium in up-front cost.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

While we appreciate the Repel’s sturdy build, we should note that snappy opening and tight tolerances require a strong spring to drive them. As a result, it requires a bit more force than you might expect in order to retract its shaft back down to its fully folded form. That was a surprise for Sarah’s mother-in-law, a cheapo drugstore umbrella devotee in her late sixties who was expecting to use less effort. (She and her partner were both drawn to the Euroschirm and the Lewis N. Clark, which had more give, and felt more like the umbrellas they were used to.) Still, they—and we—feel that once you’re aware that closing the Repel requires extra effort, it becomes more of an afterthought.

Care and maintenance

If you want your umbrella to keep you dry for a long time, you need to remember to let it dry. It’s simple: Just leave your umbrella open after use—the bathtub is a handy spot. If you don’t, its metal parts—especially automatic open-and-close functions—can corrode. Mildew can also develop in the canopy of a wet umbrella left closed, which not only smells bad but can destroy the fabric over time.

And make sure you let your automatic umbrella do its job, said Levee: If you’re using one with an automatic open-and-close function, do not pull it closed as you would a manual model. “I always point that out to customers,” she said. Over time, that unnecessary tugging could cause the mechanism to break.

The competition

Blunt XS Metro: This is a good umbrella if you’re concerned only about the wind. Its shallow, scalloped shape—a direct result of some innovative engineering—sheds gusts better than any other umbrella in our test. Unfortunately, we learned that it also does a poor job of keeping you dry when the rain blows sideways.

Davek Duet: This large model is built for two, with a 48-inch canopy. That’s wider than most people want or need, but if you’re big or tall, or just want maximum coverage, it’s worth considering. The eye-watering price is backed by Davek’s unconditional lifetime guarantee.

Davek Mini: If having a really compact umbrella matters above all else, this is a great choice. It folds down to the size of a banana. But its tiny 26-inch canopy will barely keep your head and shoulders dry, and even then, only during short dashes in light rain.

Davek Traveler: Another compact option from Davek, the Traveler measures 3inches across when open and inches long when closed. We think you’ll miss the rain coverage of a full-size (3inches or so) canopy more than you’ll appreciate having fewer inches of umbrella in your bag or purse.

EuroSchirm Light Trek: This German umbrella is quite good overall, especially given its scant 9.25-ounce weight. But it’s held back by sub-par wind resistance. The EuroSchirm’s lightweight fiberglass ribs are considerably more flexible than other umbrellas’ ribs. Because of this, the canopy collapses easily when blasted head-on and flexes like a leaf in high winds when held upright. This means you’ll suffer more inside-out episodes than you would with our other picks. While it didn’t break during this year’s testing during a snow storm, it did look somewhat the worse for wear compared with our other picks, which is why we’re no longer recommending it as an ultralight pick. But it’s still a decent lightweight choice for less-windy climates.

EuroSchirm Light Trek Automatic: The automatic version has the same issues as the manual version, but weighs a lot more.

EuroSchirm Light Trek Automatic Flashlite: This EuroSchirm is like the others, except for some reason it has a small LED flashlight in the handle. That gimmick brings its weight to 13.ounces—not a light trekker at all.

GustBuster Metro: This umbrella has a fully deserved reputation for durability in the wind. Tim never got it to come even close to inverting, and it’s OutdoorGearLab’s top pick for wind resistance. But its strength comes from a complex truss of multiple ribs and springs that makes it extremely top heavy; when the wind catches the canopy, it’s like holding a sledgehammer. That, plus a hard-plastic handle that’s slick when wet, is a losing combination.

GustBuster Classic 48-Inch Automatic Golf Umbrella: Though it has a wider canopy and a cane handle, this GustBuster has a similar construction to the Metro. One plus: The contours of the cane handle make it easier to manage in the wind. It’s a quality tool for a good price, but it didn’t lead the pack in terms of value or function.

Kazbrella: We were intrigued by the promise of the “reverse opening” umbrella, which closes by folding up instead of down. But the actual mechanism is a bit cumbersome, requiring a hard shove to open the umbrella. Its double canopy is attractive—especially in the orange and blue color combo we received—but adds to its bulk and awkwardness.

Knirps Xtreme Vented Duomatic Umbrella: This automatic umbrella feels hefty at 22.ounces, but its canopy handily opens to an impressive 4inches—the size of many stick umbrellas. It’s a good choice for someone who wants the coverage but not the hassle of carrying a cane around town. It could still be overkill for most people.

Knirps TDuomatic Umbrella: This is light yet sturdy, with very good stitch quality. However, its handle is smaller and more slippery than some of the others—and its cost significantly higher.

LifeTek: It’s almost indistinguishable from the Repel, which took top honors this year. The only discernible difference is its handle, which has a slightly more oval shape. Two tiebreakers: Unlike with the Repel, we couldn’t get a response from LifeTek’s contact form, so it’s hard to put faith in their two year “peace of mind” guarantee. And the only color options for the LifeTek are black and blue. Otherwise, it’s a great umbrella.

Niello Best Outdoor: We took a chance on this one because of its attractive price, good reviews, and 10-rib design that theoretically provides fuller coverage than the typical eight ribs. But we’ll never know if that’s true: Two ribs snapped after a single inversion. This one went straight into the garbage.

Senz Automatic: We had high hopes for this umbrella. Its main draw is its teardrop shape that keeps your shoulders and back drier than a typical round canopy. Unfortunately, the long rear-facing ribs are weak; one got damaged just cinching the canopy strap.

ShedRain Windjammer: This one suffered from poor build quality and did a poor job of keeping the mannequin dry in the shower test.

Totes Titan Super Strong Extra Large Folding Umbrella: This 48-inch model was the other oversize umbrella in our 201test. Unfortunately, a rib failed after just a few inversions. Because it’s lightweight for its size (1ounces) and not too pricey, we think it could be a fine sunshade in mild weather. But we can’t recommend it for rain.

Totes Blue Line Auto Open/Close Umbrella: This model is very well-reviewed, and we recommend its cane-style Blue Line. But the compact folding version we tested arrived with a 3-inch rip in one of the canopy seams that widened in the wind, and one of the ribs tore loose from another section of the canopy during the inversion test.

Tumi Medium Auto Close Umbrella: This umbrella’s size and compactness are middle of the road, and it didn’t stand out in any particular test, despite its premium price.
