Quality

“I read about the Repel Easy Touch umbrella on a website that tests consumer products. Of the many umbrellas tested, this came out on top. After ordering and examining it, I can say with confidence that it is sturdily built with quality materials. It opens & closes with satisfying authority. The handle is dimpled & comfortable to hold. The fabric is treated with teflon, so it sheds rain. The canopy provides enough coverage, so you'll be well protected from the elements. I've spent twice as much on a German-designed umbrella, that was also well built, & this umbrella is its equal in nearly every respect. Note: It has a little weight to it, & the heavy duty spring might make it a challenge for the elderly to close. Beyond that, what more could you want in an umbrella?” shared one 5-star reviewer.

Performs like a champ

“This is my go-to commuter umbrella. I work [in] downtown Chicago — (the windy city) and this thing stands up to the best. While everyone else's umbrellas are inverting and making them fly away, this thing performs like a champ. I'm sure it's not entirely wind-proof, but it certainly beats most of the rest. Plus, it's relatively small and takes up very little real estate in my backpack. If I end up losing it, I'll come right back and buy another,” said one happy shopper.

Bottom line

“Unquestionably the very best umbrella I've ever owned! You can feel and hear the quality — the materials, the mechanism, everything. I would not hesitate to recommend this to everyone — you won't be sorry. Great seller too!” wrote one satisfied customer.
