A smaller design often comes at the expense of a canopy that\u2019s too thin or isn\u2019t water resistant, or terrible against wind. The EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella is none of those things. It\u2019s built to be strong against wind and rain, while staying strong with a unique blend of materials and small enough to travel with. It\u2019s one of the best umbrellas to grace our list.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella\r\nBuilt to protect against wind and rain, you can make use of this strong umbrella anywhere thanks to its compact design, double canopy and water resistance.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe EEZ-Y Windproof Umbrella uses a vented double canopy to prevent high winds from sending your umbrella flying or collapsing inward. Strong winds aren\u2019t blocked by the small umbrella but rather redirected between the two canopies. Its frame system helped strengthen it through 9 reinforced fiberglass ribs and high quality stainless steel. It isn\u2019t just wind resistant, but water resistant as well, with a 210T super water repellent fabric for ultimate rain protection. However, it does not have UV protection, but the Sharpty Inverted Umbrella does!\r\nDesign\r\nAs compact umbrellas go, the EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella is fairly small. It\u2019s small enough to fit in your bag, making it a great rain mate or as a compact travel umbrella. It comes with an ergonomic handle that\u2019s slip-resistant, which is connected to a metal shaft. That metal shaft then reaches to its reinforced fiberglass ribs. It\u2019s easy to open and close, just with a simple press of the button. Every so often you\u2019ll have to fight the button, but otherwise works as intended. For a much larger umbrella, we recommend the G4Free Ultimate Golf Umbrella.\r\nValue\r\nFor an umbrella w\/ great water and wind resistance, we couldn\u2019t believe its $20 price tag, plus lifetime guarantee. It performed well above the rest of the umbrellas on our list with ease. As far as we\u2019re concerned, the EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella is one of the best travel umbrellas around. For that, we\u2019re marking it with excellent value. If its performance isn\u2019t enough, then perhaps you would be satisfied with the Repel Windproof Umbrella.\r\nEEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella Wrap Up\r\nThe EEZ-Y Windproof Travel Umbrella doesn\u2019t offer any substantial reasons to ignore it. Even its lack of UV protection is substituted with a dark-colored canopy that at least provides shade against the hottest of the sun\u2019s rays. Its sturdy frame keeps it from breaking, as its double canopy works to ignore the wind. And when you don\u2019t need it, use the automatic button.
