When looking at umbrellas, there are a few features that you should take into consideration, instead of just purchasing one because it is cute or because red is your favourite colour. After making sure the umbrella is large enough to provide you total coverage, you should look to make sure that it is windproof. Having a flimsy umbrella that turns inside out when the wind hits it is almost as bad as not having an umbrella at all. The product needs to stand up to whatever Mother Nature throws at it to keep you sheltered from the downpour.Designs
Wind-resistance doesn't mean boring, ugly or no personality. Manufacturers of women’s umbrellas know that ladies like to accessorise with pretty products that are also functional. You can choose a product with the design on the outside, so those walking behind you can see it, or go with one that has the design on the inside that you see. Another option to designs is a solid colour on the outside and a bright solid or patterned colour on the inside.Manual or Automatic
Do you want to have to push the umbrella up yourself, especially while trying to get out of the car or out the door with your hands full? If not, then you should look at the wide assortment of automatic women’s umbrellas on the market. With the press of a button, you are ready to get out in the rain and stay dry.Handles
You might not think that it is a big deal, but the type of handle can be the difference between staying rain-free or chasing your umbrella down the street. A C-handle lets you get a good grip with your entire hand, so you are less likely to drop it. If you choose a standard handle, look for one with a rubber coating which makes it more comfortable to hold for longer periods of time.
