The Many Different Styles Of Umbrellas - Which One Is Perfect For You?

If you’re looking for a new umbrella this season, don’t just pick the first one you find. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and if you shop around you can find one that’s ideal for you. Let’s have a look at some of the top sellers.


First of all, of course, there’s the classic umbrella. With microfibre fabric, full length folding umbrellas are available in a whole range of colours. You could go for a curved handle or a straight one. Black is an option for the full-on traditional look that works for every occasion.

But perhaps you’re looking for something even more convenient that you only need one hand to operate. In that case, how about the automatic umbrella. It’s just the thing if you’re looking for ease of use and a smaller size for portability when you’re off to the office or out for the evening.

If automatic umbrellas are still too big though, you might want to think about a pocket umbrella. These are tiny, and, as the name suggests, you can pack them away in a really small space. However, should you encounter extreme weather conditions, or just a sudden gust of wind, you might find you get wetter than you’d planned.

Maybe you’re expecting some really gusty weather this season. Storm umbrellas can be good for facing conditions where you need reinforced shelter.

Of course if golf is your game, you know all about the legendary golf umbrella. Everyone loves these when it comes to a barbecue or a bonfire night with a sudden shower. They’re good for golf too of course!

And how about a bubble umbrella? Maybe you had one at school. You can feel as if you’ve climbed inside this kind of umbrella, as it shelters from all angles, and the transparent design means that you can still see where you’re going. It’s a nice touch if you’re looking to make an impression, or you like the feeling of waterproof covering that encircles you with shelter.

So there are a few ideas for your umbrella shopping. Why not try a design you’ve never had before and see if it suits you. Browse our site for ideas.
