Who We Are:

When one of the nation's most trusted meteorologists, Rick Reichmuth, was unable to find an umbrella that met his standards, he set out to design his own—and Weatherman was born.

Weatherman is the only umbrella on the market to blend unmatched quality with smart technology and ingenious design. The Weatherman app pairs with the Droplet Bluetooth tracker to detect the forecast, then reminds you when you need to take your umbrella along. The tracker also ensures you always know where to find your umbrella and alerts you when you may have left it behind.

Recognized by The Today Show, Fox News, Sports Illustrated, Lonely Planet and Forbes, among others, Weatherman was named Best Umbrella in Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Awards in 2018 and 2019, and proudly serves as the Official Umbrella of the LPGA Tour, as well as the umbrella supplier of the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
