Key FeatureLarge, vented design
Where to BuyClick here

The Stormshield is a hefty vented golf umbrella with a large canopy that will hold up to the toughest winds. A manually operated and closing mechanism is incorporated into the umbrella.

The shaft is made of non-conductive fibreglass, so you won’t get struck by lightning when the weather turns bad or during a storm if you’re in an open location. The canopy is 104 cm broad, which strikes a nice balance between a regular-size golf umbrella and one that may still be utilized in a crowd.

Key Differentiators:

  • Dependable name
  • Large, vented design
  • Non-conductive fibreglass shaft

Customer’s Review:

No doubting this is one of the sturdiest umbrella’s I’ve ever owned, but when the wind picks up it’s also a bit of a beast to manage! My daughter was using it walking down to school and a gust of wind ended up spinning her around and stepping out into the road!
