    1. A Totes bubble dome umbrella with a clear canopy so you can have maximum rain coverage but still see where you're walking.

    Promising review: "I bought this umbrella in hopes that it wouldn't flip inside out when it was windy, and it did that and more. We had a pretty bad storm tonight and the wind was incredibly strong, so strong I really did think it was going to break. It didn't break and protected me from the hail and the extreme gusts of cold wind from hurting my face. Because it is see through you can carry it pretty low and look through the umbrella when walking. The wind didn't break the umbrella and it didn't hurt my face." —PB1124

    Price: $19.50 (available in four colors)

    2. An inverted umbrella to help keep your body *and* your home and car dry, because its design allows you to fold the wet layer into the dry layer — meaning there's no dripping when you're done using it.

    Promising review: "This, ladies and gentleman, is what umbrellas always should have been. This is what your old umbrella is trying to be, and wishes it was, but can never compare to. It's easy to use, well made, and BEAUTIFUL. It won't break like the others, because when your other umbrella flips inside out and gets destroyed, this one is DESIGNED to flip inside out, and is constantly resting that way when not in use. Also, you won't get wet, and it's easy to dry this thing before wrapping it all up. It comes with a fancy little bag that has a cinch and shoulder strap. The material used for the handle feels VERY nice, I can't even lie. It's smooth, but not TOO smooth. Whoever designed this thing is crafty... VERY crafty indeed." —King Zayku

    Price: $12.55 (available in many colors/patterns)

    3. A travel-sized umbrella featuring a sleek, wood handle so you can protect yourself from the rain in style.


    It has an automatic open/close feature and a vented, windproof double canopy!

    Promising review: "I've never really spent on an umbrella but this was a worthy investment. The first most striking impression of this umbrella is its build quality. From the handle to the cover, and the canvas to the frame, everything is well constructed. It looks like it will last a long time and is a keeper." —KS CHONG

    Price: $22.99 (available in two colors)

    4. An over-sized golf umbrella made in a special micro-weave fabric that's no match for even the heaviest of rainstorms or sunniest of days.


    This silk-derived material is lightweight, mold resistant, and quick-drying with SPF 50+ protection.

    Promising review: "A great umbrella! Very large, sturdy, great quality. This umbrella opens easily, quickly, and smoothly with the push of a button. It closes smoothly and feels very strong. The handle is comfortable to hold and the material is very nice quality." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $18.98+ (available in 14 colors)

    5. A J-stick umbrella featuring a classic wood handle so you're ready for any occasion or weather condition. The handle is easy to grip and the metal tip ensures durability.

    Promising review: "I loved using this back when I was in college. I kept it for three years and it held up even through a blizzard storm against strong hail and winds. It covers 2-3 people easily and the handle is really smooth/easy to carry. Sometimes when its raining, I even loop over shopping bags on the handle to free up a hand (it works since it is so sturdy). I really love easy push button too. I've bought maybe four at least and had no issue with each one. Every time there's even a chance of rain in NYC, I bring this bad boy out there." —Yan

    Price: $20+ (available in five colors)

    6. An LED umbrella to light up the way as your walking through a dreary rainstorm.


    It requires AAA batteries but you'll need to purchase some. You can get a 36-pack from Amazon for $8.09.

    Promising review: "Sturdy umbrella for one. While the lights aren't noticeable in daylight, they are sufficient in the night to guide my steps. The shaft light is fun but also is visible to cars on that dark and stormy night when I'm on foot. All lights are powered via a AAA Battery cartridge inserted in the base of the handle. Manually snaps up, slides down, with no lock to fumble with. Quick and easy. Has a velcro tab to secure the folds when collapsed and has a nice 'holster' for storage." —AC

    Price: $24.99+ (available in five colors)

    7. A windproof travel umbrella that has a Teflon coating — meaning it's waterproof and will dry almost instantly.


    It has an automatic open/close feature and a slip-proof handle

    Promising review: "Best umbrella I've ever had. I bought it after looking online for one that wouldn't fall apart at the first gust of wind in a rainstorm. After using several times in a huge rainstorm with heavy winds, it seems to be indestructible. I plan to buy several more so I can be sure to have one at my home, office and car." —Chris292

    Price: $22.95

    8. A compact, double canopy umbrella that'll provide major coverage and still fold up into a small lil' pouch.


    Promising review: "So far I love this umbrella. It fits in my lunch bag and purses easily. It opens and closes quickly and since I walk with a cane. not having to fight to get my umbrella opened is a plus. It large enough to cover me and my bags so thumbs up for the product." —MTF

    Price: $22.95 (available in 15 colors)

    9. A Sportbrella canopy to help you have the perfect beach day. Huddle under it for protection from the sun or an unexpected rain shower.

    Promising review: "I don't often bother to write reviews, but this product is worth the time. For the last four years I have relied on this to shield me at football, softball, and baseball games in both blazing sun and miserable rain. Because it's an umbrella, and has handy screen openings, I get plenty of breeze when it's a scorching day. But the huge canopy also provides plenty of coverage in rain. People I don't know always approach me and ask where I got this and whether it's easy to use. I have raved over this for years now!" —D.

    Price: $39.97+ (available in three colors)

    10. OR! A Sportbrella that latches on to chairs and strollers, and folds up easily so you can take it on whatever adventure you have planned next.

    Promising review: "Probably the best 20 bucks I have spent in a while. I'm very cautious about my sun exposure so I try to find shade whenever I am outside so this umbrella comes in handy a lot. I use this on my folding chair and have received many compliments. I also have used this to protect my chair (and myself) from the rain! I love how compact it is and the travel case is great!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $17.99 (available in four colors and two sizes)

    11. A Rainmate umbrella made with fail-safe flip technology that'll make sure it won't flip inside out and leave you stranded in the rain.


    Promising review: "This is a wonderful little umbrella for the price. LOVE that it not only opens with the push of a button, but it also closes by pushing the same button. This is perfect if you're carrying something in one hand, the umbrella in the other, and trying to get into a car. Push the button, and the canopy closes so you can slide into the car quickly. NOTE: Once the canopy is closed, you do have to manually push the shaft back down to it's travel mode. Don't be confused and think it will close all the way down on it's own. It's compressed size will be great for travel but will still cover my wife and I if need be." —Tim

    Price: $17.95+ (available in seven colors/patterns)

    12. And lastly, a splurge-worthy umbrella which uses six fiberglass rods to create balance and ensure it can withstand heavy downpour and high wind.


    Promising review: "Best money spent for a quality umbrella. Have used it in very windy weather without any issues. I was with several friends who were using standard run-of-the-mill cheap umbrellas which all flipped inside out and broke. This umbrella didn’t even show any signs of possible strain. Ended up buying a second one so my husband had one too." —Anon

    Price: $59+ (available in 12 colors)
