What Really Is The Best Umbrella For You

Looking for an umbrella? With so many styles to choose from, you’re going to need some help. Fortunately, we’re here with a guide to choose the very best umbrella to suit your needs and give you a brand new reason to look forward to the next rainy day. With our help, your next umbrella is just around the corner, and you’re going to love it.

So, let's get started. How big an umbrella did you want? If you need a really big one, you should think about a golf umbrella. They’re strong, functional, reliable, and a great way to make new friends in a crowd in the rain! Keep one in the back of the car, and you’ll have it when you need it on a big day out in the countryside. You can even play wet weather golf with it of course. However, if you’re looking for something a little more convenient for shopping, you might want a smaller model.

For a more portable suggestion, you could opt for a walking umbrella, which has a decent sized canopy without being as enormous as the golf version. On the other hand, if you’re hoping to slip it into a handbag and forget about it until you need it, a folding umbrella is probably your better bet. The downside is that it might not be quite a strong as you’d like on the gustiest of days, but if you’re not expecting to need it for more than the odd shower on your commute, or when you’re out for the evening and on your way to the car, it’s our recommendation.

Automatic umbrellas can be useful. You just press the button with one hand, and it’s there, open and ready to shelter you. If you’re wondering about a reason to choose a manual instead, it's true that the auto mechanism is an extra feature that could break, and might make it slightly heavier. However, buy a good quality automatic umbrella, and it will serve you well.

These days umbrellas come in so many colours and patterns, you’re spoilt for choice. Don’t make do with just any style or shade, pick one that really goes with your wardrobe and feels like an accessory. You could even get a transparent one if you’re keen to be seen in the rain, but if this makes you feel like you’re back at school or a member of the royal family, choose something a little more conventional.

We have a wide range of umbrellas for you to pick from. Choose carefully and your new umbrella should last for a good few years to come.
