Wind defying 9 rib construction

Most umbrellas are made of 6 or 8 aluminum ribs but Repel is fortified with 9 reinforced fiberglass ribs that flex slightly to withstand powerful gusts without turning inside out.

Superior water repellency

The Repel Travel Umbrella gets its name from its ability to do just that, repel water and other elements through its waterproof and instantly drying canopy with Teflon technology.

Lifetime replacement guarantee

You are protected for life from the rain, sleet and snow, through our lifetime replacement guarantee program. If anything at all goes wrong with your umbrella, we will send you a replacement, no return required.

Quality workmanship

Designed with a three fold chrome plated metal shaft, and strong metal frame to allow for greater stability in high winds. The ergonomic, slip proof, and rubberized handle with wrist strap allow for easy carrying. A protective travel sleeve is included.

Quality Product

I got this umbrella as a backup "just in case of rain" item. After a dozen uses, it quickly became my favorite. Sturdy, easy open/close, quality materials great for use in public transportation commuting.

Finally a good umbrella!

It seems like I have been searching for the perfect umbrella for ages, and I have finally found it. This is a very well made umbrella that is large enough to keep me dry, but light enough to carry everyday without weighing me down. I really like the red color, and I like the fact that it actually repels water. This one is a keeper!

Compact, attractive, strong and functional

I've actually never purchased an umbrella before, but decided to keep one in my car. It folds up small and opens easily. It seems to be very well made, and if I were to buy another umbrella, this would be the one I would purchase. I never know it is there until I need it. Great purchase!

Is this the repel umbrella that was featured on good morning america?
Yes, Repel Easy Touch was featured as the #1 umbrella on Good Morning America. The Wirecutter, an independent third-party, spent 50+ hours during four rounds of testing 33 different umbrellas. Repel surpassed the competition and was the featured umbrella.
How long have you had this umbrella for? Does it still work as well as when you first used it?
I got my Umbrella June 13th, so I have had it for about 2 1/2 months now. I live in Florida and we are in the middle of rainy season, so I have had MANY opportunity's to use it! I REALLY like this Umbrella! So happy that I got it! It works exactly the same as the day I got it! Its even made it through the use of my younger kids! They love pressing the button and jump at the chance to be allowed to use it when getting out of the car in the rain! HA!
What exactly does “lifetime warranty” mean? how do i sign up for the warranty program and what exactly does it cover.
Lifetime warranty means if you ever experience issues with your umbrella, then we will replace it for free. Just contact Repel directly by going to Amazon > Your account > Your Orders > Leave seller feedback > view seller profile > ask question. We will take care of you within 24 hours.
Would Mary Poppins buy this?
Indubitably. It's practically perfect in every way. One might even say it's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. At least, it will be that way until the wind shifts...
How well does it handle wind that gets underneath the canopy? I find that this is how all of my umbrellas have been damaged so far.
I took this out when we had our first big storm here in Mid-Michigan and had no issues with it turning or even bending out. Gusts were around 55 mph I was more worried about it taking off like a kite it was holding up so well.
How does the auto close feature work?
If I were to accurately "rename" the feature, it's a fold-the-umbrella-back feature then, like most [if not all] foldable umbrellas, you need to undo the extended stick/shaft by gripping on 1 end and pushing the tip with your palm. As far as the experience with opening and closing it, it has been seemless.
If you press the button by accident after it is already open, can you put it to reopen or have to push it back down to reload the springs?
You have to push it back down to reload the springs.
«This terrific umbrella is compact and lightweight, and it’s built to withstand wind speeds that are far faster than anything you’ll ever find yourself caught outside in. Accidents do happen, however, which is why Repel offers an unbeatable lifetime replacement guarantee!»
«In one word: It's Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! We tried an umbrella with more than 5,000 reviews on Amazon — and it is amazing It held up to coastal winds!»
«This sturdy yet compact umbrella from Repel features aTeflon coating to better deflect water, while the yellow option will inject a sunshiny feeling into rainy days.»
«At 11.5 inches long and 15 ounces, this isn’t the smallest or lightest umbrella on the list, but it is one of the toughest. Thanks to nine extra ribs made from flexible fiberglass, the Repel can take a beating in a windstorm, and its Teflon coating helps bolster the waterproof abilities of the top fabric.»
«While the majority of umbrellas are made of six or eight aluminum ribs, the Repel boasts nine resin-reinforced fiberglass ribs that flex to withstand gusts without turning inside out. The Teflon-coated fabric means the Repel should be almost instantly dry once you shake off the excess water once you have arrived at your destination. Finally, a lifetime guarantee should allay any further fears on purchasing what is one of the cheapest brollies here.»
«After doing 62 hours of research and putting a total of 42 different umbrellas through four rounds of testing—the most recent in the midst of a New York snowstorm—we’re confident the Repel Easy Touch Umbrella remains the best umbrella for most people. This model's durable, nine-rib construction held up admirably against gale-force winds, and it’s as sturdy as umbrellas that sell for more than twice as much.»
«The overall winner. The best umbrella.»
