Best Golf Umbrella 2013

What is the best golf umbrella? Three reasons why I prefer the Windbrella brand are outlined below. I’ve reported on this before and it’s worth repeating again. My favorite golf umbrella is the 62 inch golf umbrella by Windbrella, with an auto open button. Tested in tough weather, this is by far the best golf umbrella I’ve ever owned. It has NEVER turned inside out. I’ve had one for over 10 years and it’s still like new. It’s big enough for my kids to walk under with me across a parking lot or to cover me and my golf bag on the course. EVERYONE who ever uses this umbrella ( I have two) makes a comment about what a nice feel it has. The 68 inch is made equally as well, however, to use for more than golf, I think the 62 size is a better size for everyday personal use.

Here’s 3 reason’s why this golf umbrella is better than others:

  1. Closing the umbrella without pinching a finger. Others claim to be pinchless but I’ve still pinched my finger on them.
  2. Construction detail. From the stitching elements to the webbing, there’s no cheap plastic parts to break. I’ve never had a customer request a claim with the lifetime warranty yet.
  3. It’s lighter. Maybe not a lot, but it’s noticeable.

Customers tell us over and over again, it’s the best golf umbrella they’ve ever had. Usually the only reason they’re buying another one is because they lost theirs or they’re buying as gift for someone else. The CEOgolfshop.com online store has this umbrella at a special low price so you can order just one, before you order a 100’s for your future events. As you order more, we give you more free imprinting options.

What makes the Windbrella 68″ golf umbrella the best?

  1. Ease of use. When you’ve tried different umbrella’s you can really appreciate that this umbrella pops open and closes the smoothest of any we’ve ever tested. Others may claim to be pinchless, but in my experience, they were not. The big grip slider is key to making this pinchless.
  2. Durability. Lightweight compared to some other brands, yet durably constructed, thus the lifetime warranty. A big difference is in the finishing detail with seam finishing and fiberglass parts instead of plastic and a few knots tied with a little thread. Everyone has experienced an  umbrella with parts that break. I got my first Windbrella over 10 years ago and it’s still in great condition. The construction has gotten even better.
  3. Quality screen imprinting. Mine lasted about 8 years before it started to have any peel, and even now it still looks pretty darn good, if not perfect.

Reviewers comments: The 62 inchgolf umbrella has always been more than adequate size for me personally, though at 5’2″ I’m smaller than most; I prefer the lighter weight and size of the 62, as have our customers. Whether that’s due to price or function, the 62 has reigned as most popular. I’ve ordered other brands for product testing. Function is my number one priority. How easy does it open and close? The Windbrella remains my hands down favorite and for that reason we do not offer other brands at CEOgolfshop. We could. We choose not to, because our goal is to offer the very best.

 

How to choose the best golf umbrella

How do you choose the best golf umbrella? There are at least six critical characteristics to look for. We’ve recommended the 62″ Windbrella as the best of the best for many years. In fact, I still use the same Windbrella as when I wrote my first article and video on this subject. This article uses images from two promotional product umbrella’s that I’ve had for 10 years. The private label umbrella is a back up for my kids. It has a few broken parts and you’ll see why as we compare umbrella quality. Both of these would retail for over $35.

6 elements to look for:

  1. Construction- choose fiberglass
  2. Double canopy- won’t blow inside out
  3. Closing Grip- your hand should be able to fit on the closing mechanism without overhang, a primary cause of pinch accidents.
  4. Handle- A wider diameter grip is easier to hold for longer periods.
  5. Warranty- lifetime manufacturer
  6. Auto-open- handsfree is a must

Tips to help you discern differences between brands:

Size: 62″ is the most popular size for any level golfer from amateur to professional. A pro golfer who huddles under the umbrella with his caddy may opt for the 68″ umbrella when the weather is expected to be blustery and horrible. The 62″ covers the typical golfer need, covering you and your bag. There’s plenty of room for someone else to join you. The 68 inch is harder to find and due to it’s added size, may be just a bit more than you really need.

Double Canopy– I wouldn’t bother buying one without this if you have any kind of windy conditions where you golf. The right double canopy construction will prevent the umbrella from blowing inside out, and sometimes also helps prevent it from blowing away if you set it down while taking your swing. Not all umbrella’s with a double canopy construction perform the same.  I have two units. They look pretty similar, they feel almost the same, but they perform WAY differently. For example, the ‘backup’ unit that someone gave me, and I loan to others on occasion, has some minor broken elements even though it’s hardly ever used. Look for the umbrella with fewer parts on the double canopy. Look at the two below. The extra parts on the top umbrella are all to make up for what it lacks in durable construction.

I wish I had a photo of the double canopy umbrella that literally broke into pieces on a gusty day. Alas, I tossed the pieces into the next trash can. It looked something like this red and white umbrella, but with a double canopy.

Warranty– A Lifetime warranty is offered on the best. If it doesn’t have one, why not?

Pinchless closing– Who hasn’t gotten pinched in their lifetime? While many brands tout how theirs works, I’ve tried them. A top reason I choose Windbrella ® over the Gustbuster® is this very feature. Image below is Windbrella and Private Label. Your whole hand should be able to cover whatever you grasp to close the umbrella. Cheaper umbrella’s your hand will cover the grip and a whole lot more.

Am I prejudice about umbrella brands? Yes, I am. I’ve tried lots of them. I’ve had my hand pinched to the point of drawing blood. I’ve watched an umbrella get decimated by strong gust of wind, in Florida no less. I tried one popular brand with a nice wooden handle. It weighed so much, I was tired of it just testing it indoors. When given a choice, people will jokingly argue over who gets the Windbrella and who gets the other brand.

As a promotional product, it’s a great executive gift. Add your logo free with any purchase of 24 or more.  You can order this as a private label brand for your company too.

The 62″ Windbrella is made in black, burgundy, hunter and tan, red and white, red and black checkerboard, black and white checkerboard, navy, black and tan, hunter, white, burgundy and tan, navy and white,  royal blue and white,  and UV solarteck.

What is the best golf umbrella?

The 62″ auto open golf umbrella is by far the best golf umbrella on the market today. How many golf umbrella’s have you thrown out because they broke, tore, fell apart, or were pretty worthless when a storm kicked up? The patented mesh system is unique and imitations never hold up as well. This is the only golf umbrella that has never broken for me.

There are many options for corporate buyers:

– Add your logo in multiple locations. Never a set up fee and 1 location is always free with just a low 24 unit minimum.

– Private label. Your name on the hang tag and every where else with a low minimum of 144 units. There are other manufacturers that offer this, but after a year or two you realize it couldn’t have been a windbrella because it too fell apart. If you are going to spend the money on  great gift, spend a little bit more for a lifetime of your brand or message exposure. The lifetime warranty still applies!

The 62″ auto open umbrella also known as the OVERSIZE GOLF UMBRELLA is the best choice for executives. We don’t sell too many of the manual open unless someone is in a real budget crunch.

The 62″ manual open is also known as the 62″ WINDTUFF umbrella is exactly the same, except manual open.

The 68″ umbrella is available be special order only. It is not a stocked item with us or the manufacturer. I’ve found the 62″ to be more than adequate to cover me and the bag, or to cover the side of a golf cart when the wind is trying to blow rain into me.

Windbrella – there’s nothing quite like it!

The patented double mesh system allows the wind to pass through preventing inversion of the canopies. From the moment you press the patented Auto-Open Pinch-Less button and feel the smooth glide of your umbrella opening, you know it’s some
