Many people think there are only two options when it comes to umbrellas: you can buy a cheap one that’s bound to break, or you can buy a windproof model for a ton of cash. Well guess what — there’s a third option that gives you the best of both worlds. The Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating has more than 4,000 5-star reviews on Amazon for a very good reason. It only costs $21 and yet it can withstand winds that are about twice as fast as anything you’ll ever get caught in.
