Printed vented umbrellas

Printed vented umbrellas were traditionally believed to be more sturdy than a golf umbrella due to the vented panels that allow the wind to pass through to prevent the umbrella from folding inside itself. In order to understand the difference so you can make a choice, then it’s helpful to know how a vented golf umbrella is different to a standard golf umbrella.

How is a vented golf umbrella different to a golf umbrella?

A vented umbrella is made the same way as a standard golf umbrella and has 8 panels. Instead of a panel being made from one piece of fabric, it is made from two and sewn together differently to allow wind or heat to escape through the top of the umbrella.

Why would I choose a vented umbrella?

  • Comfort! If you are using a vented umbrella on the golf course or on a hot motorsport race grid line-up then you will want any heat to rise and escape from the top of the umbrella, rather than act as a mini-tent over your head in the heat.
  • Stability: the size of the golf umbrellas is vast. Great for promotional purposes but not brilliant in high winds. If it’s very windy and the wind gusts up inside the umbrella it can catch you off guard and swing you about, twist your arm unexpectedly, fly out of your hand or turn inside out.

Fortunately, our products are made with fibreglass ribs which means that they will keep their shape when you pop them back the right way around.

So, it’s personal preference since we believe our standard golf umbrellas and our vented umbrellas are sturdy, so it’s really up to you which you choose.
