Brella Shield is a shield for your vehicle that looks like an oversized ordinary umbrella, but it isn't. It's been designed to cover the inside of your windshield, reflecting heat and UV rays away from your car so it won't get hot when you leave it and then return to get back in. Furthermore, it's stated that using a shield like this can cool the interior of your vehicle, regardless of whether it's a car, truck, or SUV, by up to 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Open Over Windshield

    To get started with this shield, you'll need to open it over your windshield while you're sitting in your car. It'll open up and lock into place in the same way that a regular umbrella you'd use in the rain would. For optimum results, make sure that it's covering the entire windshield, from edge to edge.

  2. Leave Vehicle

    Once your Brella Shield is covering your windshield, leave your vehicle and close and lock the doors in a manner that's normal for you.

  3. Return and Remove

    When you return to your vehicle, open it up and close your shield as you would an ordinary umbrella. After it has collapsed, it'll be small enough for you to store in your glove compartment or the pocket of one of your front doors, provided that these areas aren't crowded with other things. Alternatively, you could store the umbrella under a seat or in a pocket on the back of one of your seats.

How It Works

On hot days, heat and UV rays from the sun can enter your car right through your windshield, making the car so hot that's it's unpleasant to touch your steering wheel when you get in. Heat and UV rays that enter your car can also cause damage to the dashboard and other parts of the interior over the long term. If you cover your windshield with a Brella Shield, though, this will stop some of the heat and rays from getting in, and protect the car from a high interior temperature, along with interior damage. When you enter your car again after using this shield, its interior shouldn't be so hot that you feel sick, nor should the steering wheel feel like it's going to burn your hands.


  • Gray and Silver

    Each Brella Shield is dark gray on the inside, which will aid with its cooling effect, and silver on the outside. This is a color combination that will nicely match the interior of many cars, as so many of them are prominently a shade of gray.

  • Fits Virtually Any Vehicle

    This shield is an appropriate size for the windshield of almost any vehicle, such as a compact car, a truck, or an SUV. As a result, if you have multiple vehicles, you'll be able to move the shield from vehicle to vehicle and use it within them all (as needed). Similarly, if you want to lend your shield to a friend or family member for their vehicle, they'll likely find it to be as effective as you do.

  • Carrying Case Included

    With each Brella Shield, you'll get a dark gray, leather-look carrying case. The case will protect the umbrella from getting very dusty or dirty as it sits in your car, and it's thin and lightweight enough that it won't add a lot of bulk to the umbrella.

  • Doubles as Regular Umbrella

    If it's raining and you don't have a regular umbrella with you, you can use your vehicle's shield as a stand-in. This shield will comfortably fit two people underneath it in order to keep them out of the rain. Later, if the rain stops, you can simply fold up the umbrella and put it in the included carrying case, which can be carried under one arm.

Positive Points

  • Good for Families

    There are few things that kids dislike more than getting in an incredibly hot, stuffy car, especially if they're already hot and sweaty from sports practice or playing in the park. Fortunately, if you add your Brella Shield to your car before you and your kids get out, they won't have to get into a car that's uncomfortably hot. The same goes for pets, such as dogs, that are fairly intolerant of high levels of heat.

  • Ideal for Mobile Workers

    If you're a mobile worker who drives from client to client or from site to site in order to do your job, you may find that you spend lots of time sitting in your car. Opening your Brella Shield will come in handy on hot days as you eat, read, text, or do whatever you choose to do when you get a break, as it'll help prevent you from overheating. If you're able to stay cool, you'll probably end up being more productive when you do return to your work tasks.

  • Keeps Car Looking Newer

    Since this shield will stop your vehicle from being exposed to a lot of interior sun damage, it'll likely cause the interior to look newer for longer than it otherwise would. Other people may admire the appearance of your vehicle, and you may not feel the need to go and search for a new one as quickly as other people with cars of the same age.

Negative Points

  • Won't Cover All Windows

    By covering your front windshield, the Brella Shield will block a great deal of heat and UV rays from coming in, but it won't be able to block out all of this. To block more heat and UV rays, you'd need to be able to cover all of your vehicle's windows, including the back and side windows. You'll need to find some other contraption if you want to cover those, as even additional Brella Shields won't fit properly over any window that's not the front windshield.

  • Doesn't Keep Out Cold

    This type of vehicle shield will keep out heat and sun, but it won't keep out the cold, so if you live in an area with cold winters, it won't be useful for you then. In order to help stop ice from forming on your windshield and making your vehicle excessively freezing inside, you'll need to get an exterior blanket for your windshield instead.

Save Time

If you don't use a device like the Brella Shield on a hot day, you may not be able to leave a parking lot or your driveway immediately after getting in your vehicle. Instead, you might have to run the air conditioner for up to 15 minutes until your steering wheel cools off enough for you to touch it. This, in turn, may result in you being late for your appointments or wasting minutes that could be spent on errands. On the other hand, if you do use this type of shield, your car should immediately be a comfortable temperature for driving whenever you re-enter it.

Ok Product Could be Better

1st don't think that it'll open by just pushing the little button on the bottom after you take the umbrella out from its carrier. You have to pull the umbrella out from the handle a few inches until it stops, then push the button, and then push the whole umbrella up. I kind of thought pushing the button would start an ejection sequence of the umbrella. It doesn't! It sort of fit my Ford Edge - the main issue was the rearview mirror is in the way. If they had cut out a small area in the middle of the umbrella would have been easier to use and fit better. I did get it installed now just have to see how hard it is to collapse it. I think it'll take a little juggling but should work ok.

Really Misleading

First line states 2 Brella Shields for 19.99. However, they automatically charge you 9.99 for the second one. And beware of offers that require your credit card info and I'd info before they show you the actual order charges and total cost.
