Umbrella Recommendations?
« on: April 19, 2016, 10:58:16 PM »
Hello all,

After having my 3rd $30 umbrella break in as many months, I'm after a long term (over 2 years) solution. I live in Melbourne, Australia, where the weather can change a couple times within a day, and it can get pretty windy. What are your recommendations?

Happy to spend more if I just have to spend once.

I'm currently tempted by the Senz (https://top3.com.au/categories/outdoor-and-pet/umbrellas---rain/senz-umbrellas/sz1111021) due to its cool design and advertised strength.

I have a Davek. Like you, I got tired of having umbrellas fall apart after a couple of uses.

I bought a golf umbrella quite a few years ago for about $15 (it was on sale) and that has been really great.

I bought one for $2.97 at a discount store many years ago. It still works. If I'd bought 29 of them I'd still be better off than 3x$30 of them.
