The Insta Dry Umbrella is a generously sized umbrella that's been designed to repel water as it hits the umbrella's sides, and dry in seconds after you've come in out of the rain. Each one is generously sized and comes in a shade of black or bright blue, and you can also get a deluxe version that's 25 percent larger than the standard size. This umbrella is coated in Teflon, a material that's durable enough to be used to make cookware products.

How It Works

The Insta Dry Umbrella is as strong and water repellent as it is due to its Teflon coating, its reinforced fiberglass ribs, and its sturdy metal frame. This umbrella's outer coating literally repels the majority of raindrops as they come down, causing them to bounce off the umbrella and bead away onto the ground. If your umbrella does happen to pick up a few stray water droplets, all you'll need to do is give it one shake outside before you enter your home or another indoor building. As you carry your umbrella, it'll be immune to interference from the wind, too, since its nine fiberglass ribs and metal frame will enable it to keep its shape, even when subjected to heavy gusts. Consequently, instead of having a soaked umbrella that's bent out of shape after you use it, you'll have one that's almost completely dry and isn't at all damaged.


  • Blue or Black

    When you obtain an Insta Dry Umbrella, you'll have a choice between the shades of black and bright blue, two shades that people of various ages and genders tend to like. Since blue and black raincoats are also quite popular, the umbrella you select may actually end up matching your raincoat.

  • Non-Slip Handle

    The handle on each of these umbrellas, due to its design, will be unlikely to slip out of anyone's hand as they're holding onto it. That means you'll be unlikely to drop your umbrella and end up soaked as you're rushing along the street. The base of each handle also contains one button that you'll be able to use to open and close your umbrella, so you won't have to reach far up your umbrella's stem to do so.

  • Compact and Lightweight

    Regardless of whether it's folded out to its full size or folded up, this umbrella as a lightweight one, and when it's folded up, it'll become fairly compact. While it's in this state, you'll be able to fit yours into most bags or the glove compartment of your car. If you leave one of these umbrellas in your vehicle's glove compartment, you'll always have one on hand if it unexpectedly starts to rain.

  • Has Hook

    Each Insta Dry Umbrella has a fabric hook attached to its handle. You'll be able to use this fabric strap in order to hang your umbrella from virtually anything, like a nail in your garage or a metal hook in your coat closet.

Positive Points

  • Can Avoid Unwanted Drips

    If you use an umbrella that doesn't dry as quickly as this one, you might end up with a bunch of water droplets all over your car's seats, your clothing, and your floors. This could inconvenience you and your family or friends since you might end up sitting or standing in a wet spot or having to enter a public place with water on your clothes. Fortunately, if you shake your Insta Dry Umbrella off once while you're outside, and then enter your car or home, this umbrella will dry in seconds without much dribbling.

  • Won't Snap Shut

    If you're out and about on a windy day, other umbrellas that aren't as sturdy may suddenly snap shut on you, potentially leaving you subjected to heavy wind and rain. This is unlikely to happen while you're carrying your Insta Dry Umbrella, though, as its sturdy construction will help keep it open in any weather conditions. Along the same lines, it'll be unlikely to turn itself inside out on you as it's hit with a big gust of wind, either.

  • Two Can Fit Underneath

    This umbrella is big enough that two people will be able to fit comfortably underneath it while standing or walking. If you've got one of these umbrellas, you'll be able to share it with a coworker, a friend, a family member or your partner instead of leaving them out in the rain. Those users who want an umbrella that's large enough for three or four people may want to upgrade to the deluxe version of the Insta Dry.

Negative Points

  • No Child's Size

    Although the majority of adults will find this umbrella lightweight, especially in comparison to other umbrellas you might have around your house, a small child may still struggle to carry it. For that reason, it would be helpful if a smaller child-sized version of this umbrella, with the same type of ribs, shell, frame, and handle, could be made available.

  • No Printed Designs

    The solid blue and solid black Insta Dry Umbrellas look nice, but people who prefer to carry more colorful umbrellas with patterned designs may be disappointed in those choices. Unless more colors and patterns of this umbrella are introduced, people seeking jazzier-looking umbrellas might decide to look at another type.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Keep Dry in Garden

    If you want to do some mass watering in your garden, but don't want to accidentally get soaked with water from your hose, the Insta Dry Umbrella can help you out. Just turn your hose on and hold it in one hand as you water, while holding the umbrella in front of your body so it can shield you from any wayward drops. If you need to water any plants that are hanging above your head, you can also hold the umbrella over your head with one hand while you do so.

  2. Avoid Splashes By Pool

    Similarly, if you want to spend some time on your patio by your pool, but your kids are splashing water towards you every few seconds, this umbrella can protect you. If you hold it with one hand or perhaps hook it to a chair or table, you'll be able to enjoy your time outdoors with your family without getting covered in water. You'll notice there's a second hook on your umbrella's outer shell that may help you attach it to a piece of furniture if you can't find a way to attach it with the handle's hook.

Save Money

Umbrellas that are less durable than the Insta Dry may have to be replaced more frequently, such as every year or so, if they get bent out of shape or they rip. On the other hand, you may be able to use your Insta Dry Umbrella for a decade or longer without any visible wear and tear, due to the durable materials it's made from.
