Are you in need of a reliable umbrella?

Look no further – this guide will help you find the perfect one! At Umbrellas Direct Australia, we understand that choosing an umbrella can be difficult. That’s why we’ve put together five essential tips to help you pick the best umbrella for your needs and lifestyle. 


1. Consider your specific needs: Not all umbrellas are created equal - some are simply suited to rainy days while others are specifically designed to handle heavy rain and storms.  Before you shop, think about why you need an umbrella and the situations you'll need it in.

2. Choose the right size and weight: We recommend investing in an umbrella that folds up tightly and is easy to carry around with you. If you're looking for something extra-durable, consider umbrellas made from materials like aluminum and fiberglass instead of plastic or fabric as these materials offer more wind resistance and durability over time.

3. Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles and colours: A good way to express yourself through fashion is by customizing your umbrella with vibrant colours or unique patterns like stripes or floral prints. And if you're looking for something classic, traditional black umbrellas remain the go-to favourite!

4. Invest in quality construction: When shopping for an umbrella, always look out for sturdier frames that are designed to last longer - particularly if you plan on using it often or in windy conditions. The construction of an umbrella also plays a role in how much protection it provides against rain - so choose wisely!

5. Think about features and extras: Apart from the basics such as size, weight and durability, consider how the umbrella will be used and if it has any special features that make it stand out from other umbrellas. Some umbrellas can have extra mechanisms like auto-open/close buttons which can be very helpful in rainy and windy weather, while some also come with additional accessories like carrying cases or straps and clips for easy portability.

With these five umbrella tips, we hope that finding the right umbrella is now easier and more enjoyable than ever before! CLICK HERE TO VIEW OUR FULL UMBRELLA RANGE and check out our wide selection of quality umbrellas – we guarantee there’s one for every type of weather!
