Weatherman umbrellas latest release sparks debate across college campuses and golf courses nationwide

The latest collection of golf products released by award-winning Weatherman Umbrella has not only sparked new debates on golf courses across the country, but also at tailgates outside some of the largest college football stadiums spanning the 50 states. 

Weatherman’s College Collection features both golf-sized canopies (68”) and for those non-golfers or just those who want protection from the elements on the go, its coveted Travel Umbrella. College sports fans who root for the likes of Penn State, Michigan, Alabama, Florida and Ohio State are just some of the many who can proudly support their teams while staying dry.

“Launching our College Collection is a venture that we’re really proud of at Weatherman because we know just how deep people’s pride can run when we’re talking about fandom, especially when it comes to their favorite college programs,” said Tyler Kupper, Partner at Weatherman Umbrella. “I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Blue Hens golf team at the University of Delaware, and I love breaking out my UD-themed umbrella during a round. Customers ask us every day about what schools we’ll be adding next, so we understand there’s a unique demand for this type of product.”

Shoppers looking for special Black Friday or Cyber Monday opportunities have the chance for 20% off and free shipping on orders over $100 at through Tuesday, Nov. 30. Traditional golf umbrellas are included, but some restrictions do apply.

This new collection brings everything a Weatherman Umbrella customer expects as the company continues to deliver sturdy and substantial products designed with not only industrial-stretch fiberglass and Teflon-coated fabric to withstand winds up to 55 mph and repel the rain, but also UPF 50+ coverage within the fabric for when the sun’s rays are really heating up. Specific to its golf umbrellas, a pocket is featured inside the canopy for tees and gloves, as well as a silicon coated rib to hang your towel on - eliminating worry about it slipping off and getting wet.

For golf traditionalists, Weatherman still boasts a significant roster of available options. Don’t sleep on Weatherman’s Arnold Palmer Collection, with four different designs befitting The King. The Official Supplier for the 2021 Ryder Cup and Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics also partnered with golf superstar Danielle Kang, who designed her very own product line that’s in her bag prior to competitive rounds each week on tour.
