Gustbuster: Beating Mother Nature for over Ten Years

Not many things in golf are perfect.  Even the most well-struck shots don’t often find the hole, and even rounds that start out sunny can end up cloudy, rainy, or worse.  This heavy-duty umbrella is the best in the business, bar none.  The Gustbuster destroys high winds with its 190-thread vinyl canopy.  Whereas most umbrellas wilt in tough conditions, the Gustbuster shines.  It can withstand winds in excess of 55 miles per hour, making it perfect for the golf course, the bow of a ship, or anything short of the eye of a hurricane.

No other umbrella offers the protection of the Gustbuster.  Multiple teardrop-shaped vent holes maximize the umbrella’s wind resistance, while the elastic shock cord stabilizes the Gustbuster against sudden gales.  The Gustbuster is also extremely large, and it’s able to shield multiple people from the rain at once.  The ferrule on top is even resistant to lightning!

The Gustbuster comes highly recommended.  The College of Aeronautics subjected the Gustbuster to its most rigorous wind tunnel testing procedures, and the umbrella passed with flying colors.  The Gustbuster can also be seen in the bags of many PGA pros.

Golfers everywhere are making Gustbuster a permanent part of their games.  It’s easy to see why—it opens and stores compactly and neatly, and nothing else comes close to matching its protection from the
weather.  It can even be imprinted with a custom logo.

Gustbuster makes more than just umbrellas.  The company’s Sunbuster line of sunglasses is leading the way in UV protection and vision
enhancement for active people.  Golfers, hunters, fishermen, cyclists, and outdoorsmen of all kinds can benefit from the flawless vision and ocular protection that Sunbuster provides.  The multi-layer SolaRex lenses block UV rays, while the polycarbonate molding prevents shattering. 

Sunbuster has multiple lenses, each of which is optimized for specific activities.  The exclusive Polartech technology found in Sunbuster’s lenses provides vivid color separation and reflection, two things that are crucial when playing golf.  A pair of Sunbusters won’t hurt a golfer’s depth perception, and with a pair of
Puttreader lenses, you’ll be seeing breaks in the green that you didn’t even know existed.

Each pair of Sunbusters has lenses that are coated multiple times to eliminate harmful peripheral reflection and to reflect direct sunlight.  Even in bad weather, Sunbuster performs.  Its Aquapel technology prevents fogging and streaking, meaning you can wear them in any conditions.

With a Gustbuster umbrella and a pair of Sunbuster sunglasses, golfers will be prepared for anything out on the golf course.  Visit for more information on these products. m
