Austin, TX – After years in the umbrella crafting industry, Repel Umbrella has revealed its new travel series. The 11.5″ travel umbrella received the best overall pick award from Good Morning America and rave reviews from news sources like CNN Underscored and Wired.
When it comes to travel umbrellas, Repel approaches everything from construction to design with a unique eye. Rather than using aluminum ribs, the company fortifies its umbrellas with resin-reinforced fiberglass. Because of this construction, the travel umbrellas flex and withstand oncoming wind rather than collapsing in on themselves.
The skin of the umbrella is Teflon technology, meaning that the canopy is not only water and other element proof, but it is also instantly drying. As for the handle and rod, the product has a three-fold chrome plated black metal shaft and a rubber, slip-proof grip handle with a wrist strap attached. The travel umbrella weighs less than 1 pound and easily fits into any travel case.
Though its travel umbrellas are dominating media attention right now, Repel also offers reverse umbrellas and golf umbrellas. All its products use the same technology, although each type offers unique benefits and uses.
The reverse umbrella is 31″ when folded but stretches to 48″ when opened. The umbrella is also a self-standing model, which allows the Teflon technology to achieve instant drying capabilities. The canopy of the reverse umbrella has double-layering for additional water-proofing and to protect the ribs from rust damage.
Useful for golfing or for family outings, the Repel Golf Umbrella stretches out to 60″ when opened. The umbrella is 45.5″ when closed while maintaining a lightweight due to the Teflon canopy and fiberglass frame. The golf umbrella has a double layer, vented mesh sunshade that allows the umbrella to resist wind gusts from underneath the canopy. The inversion technology helps the umbrella adapt to sharp gusts of wind without breaking the ribs.
Repel Umbrellas have a dedicated fanbase whose reviews are on the official website. The company is active on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube for customers who want to know more. It is pleased to gain recognition from some of the nation’s favorite morning programs and to unveil a product that the company hopes will help numerous users stay dry on their travels.
