#1. Wooden handle umbrella VS Metal handle umbrella
At first, I would have expected the wooden handle will gain more weight for the umbrella because I thought the wood is solid.
However, there is not much difference.
The wooden handle umbrellas’ weight is around 1 pound to 1.5 pounds. You do have a solid feeling when you hold it, but the umbrella itself is actually quite lite. That is to say, holding a wooden stick umbrella is not really a problem. You don’t need to worry about the weight.
I thought the prices for wooden shaft umbrella would be much higher than other common umbrellas at the very beginning. But I was wrong once again.
Although there are authentically designed umbrellas with premium wood material, whose prices are over hundred even thousand bucks. But most of them are under $50. It’s something that everyone can afford. But a wooden handle umbrella is definitely more graceful and expensive-looking for sure.

#3. Things to know before buying a good wooden holder umbrella
1. Make sure the umbrella frame is windproof
There are lots of lame umbrellas with good appearances in the market that do not worth buying. A good umbrella’s stretchers and ribs should not be snapped easily. The umbrella frame has to be stable to provide rain & wind protection. You can check out the thickness of the shaft and the ribs. If they are too thin, maybe that is not a good choice.
2. Auto open design
Trust me, you don’t want to open the umbrella manually when you meanwhile holding something else in a pouring rain. Having the auto open design absolutely will make it easier for you to look graceful.
3. Canopy fabric is vital
A well-built umbrella always comes with high-density fabric to protect you from outdoor rain leaking. And try to find canopy that has quick-dry feature if possible. Some canopy even has anti-UV design, which could be used as a UV umbrella to get sun protection.
