AmazonBasics Compact Automatic Travel Umbrella with Wind Vent
A useful addition to any travel bag, backpack, or briefcase, this AmazonBasics compact automatic travel umbrella features a wind vent (double canopy), which not only helps keep you dry when it's raining, but also helps prevent the umbrella from inverting when the wind kicks up. From warm Spring showers to fierce Fall storms and unruly wind tunnels, the AmazonBasics umbrella makes for a reliable take-along companion when you need to get from here to there without getting drenched.
Made of Steel & Polyester
Built to last through many rainy seasons, year after year, the AmazonBasics compact automatic travel umbrella with wind vent features durable steel construction with a canopy made of reliable, waterproof polyester. Sturdy, yet lightweight, the umbrella helps get you where you're going without having to worry about the weather.
- Wind vent helps umbrella keep its shape during wind gusts
- Canopy auto opens/closes at the touch of a button
- Includes protective storage sleeve
- Secure-grip handle for a comfortable hold
- Made of durable steel and polyester
- Closes to a compact size of 11 inches long
Thoughtfully designed, the umbrella's canopy automatically opens and closes with the simple touch of a button. Push the button to open; push the button to close. After the canopy collapses, manually pull the upright support down into the locked position. With the umbrella back in its base, the auto-open mechanism is ready to be used again.
The AmazonBasics compact automatic travel umbrella includes a slip-on sleeve, which helps keep the umbrella neatly stored. The storage sleeve fits securely around the closed-position umbrella, and lifts off easily when it's time to take cover and venture outside.
Soft, Comfort-Grip Handle
The umbrella comes equipped with a soft, secure-grip handle, which helps ensure a comfortable hold, whether casually window-shopping downtown or dashing from your car to the front door. A wrist strap at the end of the handle allows for hands-free carrying when the rain subsides.
The full-size umbrella offers ample coverage in the open position, but when closed, it folds into a conveniently compact size, measuring just 11 inches long. Its compact size makes it a great choice for any on-the-go traveler, or for anyone who likes to be prepared. Having more than one allows for stashing an AmazonBasics umbrella in multiple locations--in a desk drawer, glove compartment, or cubby by the back door.

We noted that most of the materials were exactly the same between the two umbrellas (see my pictures below comparing the two umbrellas side-by-side!). The spine, the handle, the shaft, etc. and they all felt sturdy and durable. The only difference was that the more expensive one with wind vent had, well, the wind vent. We haven't tested them in conditions including strong, heavy winds, but they held up well in Thailand's heavy downpours, even though they don't have the diameter to cover your full body if there is some wind. The release is very strong so be careful where you point it!
The sleeve is very difficult to put back on the umbrella after use because the sleeve is very tight. The AmazonBasics logo is on the velcro band that wraps around the umbrella, and is the only real identifying feature on the umbrella so it will be very difficult to tell apart from other umbrellas in a rack of umbrellas. I suggest adding a tag to the umbrella itself.
We found that the umbrellas were heavy and added quite a bit of weight to packed luggage. That is the trade-off in buying a steel umbrella, as opposed to lighter but more expensive aluminum umbrellas.
My opinion is that unless you live in an area with strong winds, the basic travel umbrella is more than sufficient for the needs of most people. I would recommend this to any friends and family looking for an umbrella and will return to edit this review if and when the umbrella breaks.
I purchased this umbrella at $16.99 - 20% Prime discount, or $13.59 + HST from Amazon.ca.
Nonetheless, good quality.
Otherwise, this umbrella offers some decent coverage, a slightly larger diameter would be preferable, as it would prevent any carried bags from getting wet. Its fine for average sized people if you're not carrying anything. However, if you're skinny enough to get full coverage from this umbrella while carrying a backpack/messenger bag, you're probably risking a Mary Poppins situation with the added risk of the umbrella breaking on you in mid-flight
The handle is also a little too small, its easy to accidentally press the open/close and close the umbrella on your self if you briefly tighten your grip on the handle.
Great umbrella for an awesome price.
Wind vents are a great addition that doesn't come with an umbrella this price.
Easy to open and close.
Great size to stash away inside the car, fits easily in the centre console of my SUV
It's basically for just one person
It closes with a velcro wrap that is pretty tight, don't know how long that will last.
Very tight fit for the cover also.
Con: to push the umbrella into the handle after pressing the down button to close it requires a lot of force. It would be difficult for someone older or with upper body injury, or who is weaker than an average 35 year old.
Very minor con with no bearing on my rating: no other colours or designs to pick from.
