It is obvious that the compact umbrellas could save a lot of troubles with holding an umbrella after the rain stops. But, to choose the right one, which won’t be broken so easily even in a strong wind, could be quite challenging.
Therefore here we come with the post about the best compact umbrellas – whether coloured or plain, with plastic or wooden handle, there is a lot of great products on the market, for a reasonable price and what is the best – tried by former customers so you don‘t need to buy pig in a poke!
Thanks to our post you will find out there is no compromise need to be done between reliable, stylish, still practical and compact umbrella – you can have all in one!
Whether compact or long handled umbrella, we remind you before buying some umbrella, to check the opening system the umbrellas has (whether manual, semi or fully-automatic – if you are now much aware what advantage or disadvantage each mechanism has, we recommend to check our other blog post about the best opening mechanism).
Another importance has the weight of the umbrella (optimal weight is around 350 – 400 grams due to wind resistence and pleasant holding), whether it has UV-protection or not so you can use it in Summer as well as parasol. We would like to point out that more ribs it has, more wind resistant the umbrella is.
So here we come with our recommendation of the best compact umbrellas you can find on our website to make your decision (and maybe also your life) during rainy days easier.
If you like some of the listed umbrellas, just click on the title or the picture of the umbrella and you will be forwarded to the product page you can find more information about the product. We wish you pleasant reading and choosing the right compact & windproof umbrella!
One of our best-recommended product is this compact, wind resistant umbrella. Same time for a good price (appr. 11 USD on Aliexpress), and purchased by a lot of customers with mostly 5 stars feedback.
This great umbrella (425 grams only) is exactly the already mentioned compromise between small – compact umbrella and full-size umbrella, which protect their owner from rain and stronger wind without fear to be easily broken.
Another plus is it is fully-automatic umbrella with high-quality steel frame and Teflon coating due to is the umbrella super water repellent and as a plus, it could be used as a parasol (sun umbrella) as well. Can you see any cons? The only one we can find is that there is the only classic black and blue colour variation.
Another great product we would like to represent is a woman umbrella offered by a producer, which specialize directly in umbrellas (which is mostly a plus).
With this umbrella you don‘t need to make any compromise as it is fancy looking, leight-weighted, reliable umbrella, even for a reasonable price (appr. 18 USD on Aliexpress incl. shipping costs).
This fancy umbrella with the option of 3 colours to be chosen from has 270 grams only, is equipped with a quick automatic opening mechanism and has been produced from carbon steel!
Due to the carbon fibre skeleton this lightweight, designer umbrella should resist rain and wind and provide reliable protection. You can use it as a sun protector as well due to anti UV cloth – all those features makes from this umbrella really good choice!
Hard to believe there could exist a big and still compact umbrella. Even not only classic-plain design but black or navy blue with small square pattern, which makes from this umbrella great choice for purchase in case you need to cover yourself (and probably another person without a problem) without the need of giving up style!
Among another pluses of this umbrella belongs the fact that it guarantees quality protection against stronger rain and wind due to strong metal frame skeleton and still is able to be hidden into a bag or backpack. The weight is also not high as it has only 490 grams.
This product is also suitable for outdoor sports as fishing, golf, hiking – provides reliable cover and as it has only 32 cm in the folded mode, it is a great companion, which could be easily hidden in your backpack!
The only cons this umbrella has is a manual (non-automatic) opening mechanism, which could also mean there are not many ways how to break it. And is usable against the sun as well due to the double canopy. What a product! And the price? You won‘t believe when we say it costs only appr. 14 USD including shipping on Aliexpress.
Women usually look for some practical and same time stylish product. For them, we have a top quality fashionable umbrella, compact one, still with great reviews and with large design option.
This umbrella has 400 grams, could serve as sun protector as well, is fully automatic (means no struggle with opening) with a metal skeleton.
Reliable protection and nice design at once – what else to wish? The price is apprx. 18 USD including shipping on Aliexpress and if this stylish umbrella is so good as the producer and former customers claim, it would not be money wasting!
Among all the great and same time stylish umbrellas we cannot miss this classic umbrella, delivered with the leather case, availalable in black and blue colour. Supported with 12 hard ribs is this product strongly windproof and you can rely it protects you very reliably!
It is semi-automatic umbrella, which means opening is done automatically by pushing a button and closing has to be done manually. The canopy is from super waterproof teflon so drying this umbrella would take just a while!
Are you asking what is the price of this fantastic product? Hard to believe it costs only appr. 12,7 USD + shipping. This umbrella is very suitable for travelling and could be used as golf umbrella as well!
We cannot help ourselves we really need to show this oil-painting umbrella – a little bit cheaper than the previous one (you can have it for 13 USD incl.shipping on Aliexpress), but very original and fashionable umbrella with large design option to be chosen from!
There is a different opening mechanism as it is non-automatic (therefore not such suitable for small children), but the other features are very common as the previous one – very well evaluated by former customers, light weighted (360 grams) with metal skeleton and also with UV protection, which makes this umbrella usable in rain and against sun as well.
Although it is a manual umbrella, there is protect fingers switch so your fingers should not be hurt during the opening and closing of the umbrella. After purchase, you should not be disappointed by the real colours as they should be the same as in the picture.
For men-gourmets, those don‘t want to make any compromisis we have quality business umbrella, compact with quality metal skeleton, that protects it‘s owner very well and is practical same time.
The price here is higher than all the previous umbrellas – you can have this umbrella for appr. 21 USD on Aliexpress inlcuding shipping costs. Former customers evaluate this umbrella very well so you can bet on this product without a fear.
You can choose from 3 different colours – navy blue, black and gray. This umbrella could serve as parasol due to anti-UV canopy. Great feature is the wooden handle and there is no surprise (especially when you consider the price), there is fully-automatic opening mechanism, ready to serve it‘s owner very well and for a long time.
In case of no need, you can easily stash this umbrella to your backpack or briefcase due to in the folded mode it has 30 cm only! 10 metal ribs should reliably protect you in case of wind so we recommend to not hesitate if you fancy this umbrella!
So many options – too little time
Whether you follow our suggestion, which compact umbrellas to choose, or just follow your own opinion, we recommend to revise all the necessary features of the umbrella – as are already mentioned mainly the opening mechanism (some people really prefer manual than automatic umbrellas), the size of the canopy when the umbrella is open (so you can hide your child or partner) and of course – the amount of ribs and material of the whole skeleton.
If the umbrella has double canopy, it means there is better protection not only against rain, but also against sun and most of the umbrellas dry fast, which is also great feature.
You should also check the size of the folded umbrella (whether it fits to your small bag/backpack or not) – some umbrellas, which are suitable for sports could hardly fit your small bag. If the price corresponds to the offered features, there is no need to hesitate!
