We all know that, no matter how luxe or fancy it is, all it takes is one determined gust of wind to turn any typical umbrella into a mess of metal and nylon. No such worries with Davek's Golf model, however. During testing in a wind tunnel at the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the 62-inch-wide, dual-canopy model withstood gale-force winds of 60 mph. That should keep you dry no matter the conditions all the way up to a major hurricane (and if you're jaunting about in the next Katrina, well, you've got other things to worry about.)
