In the toughest of times, heroes can be found in unexpected places. Weatherman has always held a deep respect for our military and veterans. And we’re proud to show up for those who have paid the ultimate price while serving our nation.

It’s with an outpouring of respect that we announce another patriotic collection, the Folds of Honor “Freedom” Collection, as part of our commitment to honoring America's fallen soldiers and supporting surviving family members—a tribute that we hope you’ll feel when using one of our amazing umbrellas. 

As Americans, it is our honor and duty to support our nation's veterans in any way we can. Each year we introduce a new collection in partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members. With every purchase of a Folds of Honor umbrella, we donate $5 directly toward funding these scholarships. 

Supporting Our Nation’s Veterans with Every Purchase

When you shop the Folds of Honor Collection by Weatherman, you’re not only purchasing a high-quality product for yourself, but you are also helping to ensure that the families of our veterans receive the support they deserve. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

2023 Folds of Honor "Freedom" Collection

Weatherman's Folds of Honor "Freedom" Collection is the perfect blend of patriotism, style and functionality, while paying homage to the American flag and all that it symbolizes. 

Now with five styles to choose from, including the 68" Golf Umbrella, Collapsible Umbrella, Stick Umbrella, Travel Umbrella, and our recently launched Kids Umbrella, this collection has something for everyone.

The Thought Behind the Design

When we set out to deliver this new design, we wanted to create something that would be unique to our previous collections, yet familiar to the American eye. Our team sat with the word “freedom” for some time, and soon enough, came to a mutual “AHA” moment. What is a representation of freedom to citizens of all demographics? The American flag.  

Our nation’s flag has always been a symbol of freedom and bravery. It is a reminder of the sacrifices that have been made by the courageous men and women who have fought and died for our country. And when it’s held high in the sky, waving in the wind – we are all reminded of the challenges we’ve faced and endured. 

That's why for the latest design, we took the primary elements of our star-spangled emblem, freed them from their forms, and reunited them in a reimagined, lattice pattern. The idea behind the design is that no matter what our nation endures, we always come back stronger and better together.

Giving Back to Our Nation's Veterans

As a nation, we owe a great deal of gratitude to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom, and we’re honored to provide an opportunity to show up for them in a big way. 

And with your help, we’re proud to say that since 2018, we’ve raised over $300,000 in donations to the organization. We can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together in support of this noble cause with the launch of this new collection!

By supporting Folds of Honor, we're not only honoring our nation's heroes, but we're also investing in the future of their families. Join us in giving back, one sale at a time, and let's show our veterans the gratitude they deserve! Shop the Freedom Collection today.
