It’s hard to believe we’re TWO today! It’s been another amazing year and we have some VERY exciting things coming in Year 3 – but before we get to that, here's a quick countdown of the top five highlights from our second trip around the sun.
In Year 2, Weatherman...
5 – Added to our many golf accolades: We were named the Golf Digest Editors’ Choice for Best Umbrella for the second year in a row; we served as the Official Umbrella of the 2019 Solheim Cup at Glen Eagles in Scotland; and we renewed our status as the Official Umbrella of the LPGA for the second year.
4 – Got to keep Roger Federer dry during a rain delay at the Western & Southern Open. (As a lifelong tennis fan, this was a totally surreal moment for me personally!)
3 – Built our very own Bluetooth tracker, the Droplet, which launches later this month. It features increased range, better accuracy and longer battery life – and we know you’re going to love it!
2 – Refreshed and improved all of our products with new colors, upgraded fabric, better prices, free shipping, eco-friendly packaging and more. You can read more about the changes here.
1 – Partnered with Folds of Honor again on a new patriotic umbrella and raised more than $75,000 for military families.
And now that we’re officially entering Year 3, I have some HUGE (yet small) news to share…
Introducing the Weatherman Travel Umbrella!
We’ve been wanting to offer a compact umbrella for so long, but it had to be the absolute best on the market. And that meant more than a year of testing, tweaking and perfecting until we got it right – but we finally did it!
This new umbrella is less than 12 inches long and weighs less than a pound. It's the perfect size for a purse or small backpack, which means it can accompany you daily on all of your adventures. It's wind-tunnel tested up to 45 mph and features the same water-repellent, Teflon-coated fabric as our other umbrellas to ensure you'll stay dry no matter what. And it comes in seven awesome colors!
The Travel Umbrella will be available to purchase on November 29, Black Friday. You can sign up with your email address now and be the first to know when it's ready. We can't wait to hear what you think!
All the best,
Rick Reichmuth, CEO and Founder of Weatherman
