This is a large umbrella with some weight that feels very sturdy. Best of all, I stayed dry throughout my walk in a steady rain fall with a bit of a breeze and ,thanks to a better design, I was still dry after lowering it. It truly contained all the water inside the folded umbrella!
I ordered this because of the fact that it becomes compact. I had a reversible close umbrella before but it was the long one that only closed so seemed like you had a cane to hold onto afterwards. This one allows the handle to fold like other umbrellas, so when I close it, i get no water on me Andi can easily move to passenger side floor for storage.
Thank you! Very beautiful umbrella, all works. I recommend the store to everyone. Good luck, success, happiness.
It hasn't rained since the umbrella arrived, but I think it will be fine. It fits in the door pocket of my car. It is heavier than other umbrellas I've had, but I don't see that as a negative; I think it just means sturdier/longer lasting.
I live in the Caribbean we have a hot season and rainy season and an umbrella is a must for me.I found myself buying an umbrella every month or two as they would never last..I decided to do some research and find myself a really quality one as I was spending too much money on umbrellas. So I bought this. It had lots of great reviews, it's windproof , has 12 ribs instead of the regular 8 that most umbrellas have, made of Teflon etc ( I honestly did not know these types of umberellas existed).This umbrella will completely bend back but never breaks..mine is still as good as new and just closes and opens with the click of a button. I will never buy another brand or any other type of umbrella again..I'm a lifetime customer.
Good quality, the umbrella closes when you press the button, it's great!!
I have had my umbrella for three years now and there has been several times where it’s been flipped all the way upside down and it pops back to normal. I’ve gone through a lot of umbrellas. And when I looked at this umbrella I thought it was very pricey at first. But it saved me so much money in the long run. No more having to run to the store with no umbrella to buy another umbrella. It dries super fast. And the compact cover that it comes with helps me keep it in my backpack without causing holes in my water bottle holder. On top of that I love how it doesn’t make a mess in my car when I just throw it on the floor. Before there used to be a lot of water And it would get everywhere in my car. I recently bought another one for my boyfriend. I religiously standby this umbrella. Because it seems some very rough weather and has kept me dry in all circumstances, I even use it when it’s sunny outside sometimes. Keep the sun from beaming on me
Sturdy & attractive umbrella. Love the highlight around the edges that shows up in the dark. I’ve bought this same umbrella 3 times as I keep on leaving it somewhere .
This thing is so cool and handy! It is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted an inverted umbrella for a while but I hated that they are all the long cane-like styles. This one is compact and easy to store or take with you.
I gave these as gifts to a variety of people; and every one of them exclaimed how thoughtful it was, as all of us occasionally needs a good umbrella; and having one in the car as well as near our house door is a good plan. These appear to be very well made, too.
Seems like an extremely well made and sturdy umbrella. I love the size, bigger than most compact umbrellas so it protects me better, but not so large that it's a liability when the wind is blowing hard or so it's unwieldy when negotiating your way around with others on a crowded sidewalk. I feel the same about the handle, most compact umbrellas have tiny short handles that are hard to keep a firm grip on, this one's longer and more comfortable to hold. It's just hard plastic though and I wouldn't mind if it was rubber covered so it was a little more non slip. Still, not enough of an issue to ding it a star for. The "leather" cover is ok, but it's kinda large so I don't use it. The nylon sleeve is nothing special but it works and is more compact so that's what I carry it in. I commute to work using public transportation and part of that commute includes a 1/2 mile walk so my umbrellas get used regularly. My last umbrella while durable was too small in diameter and the handle was atrocious so I got this one to replace it. So far so good. If it doesn't stand the test of time I'll be back to update my review!
The perfect umbrella. It fits in the side pocket of my backpack and works great!
Quality umbrella, I recommend
I've had auto-open umbrellas for years; wouldn't have any other. But I've been increasingly unhappy with the manual close. When you get in the car, trying to stay dry while you reach up to close the umbrella is hard. And then the umbrella drips over everything as you try to place it in the passenger footwell. This works well. BUT! Beware when you press the close button, it is an instantaneous SNAP close! I wasn't prepared for that the first time and it really surprised me. When you press the close button, it snaps into a folded shape (a triple fold for each vane, so it gets very small). Then you have to press the handle back to its short length. It's easy to do that without getting water in your lap or on your car seats because the water is contained in the folds. Good umbrella with adequate coverage and (so far) reliable operation.
I love how it’s reversed but still folds up!
It was a good value for the price
It opens & closes super fast, like scary fast. Dries easily. I’ve had the wind turn it fully inside out & it just pops back to normal. Really like it.
So far I love everything about it I would recommend it to everyone I plan on getting more for gifts Very happy with this product
It came fast. Perfect size. Sturdy. Easy to use. Thank you!
Sun or rain it's stays in my car
It was perfect!
Umbrella works well. Keeps the rain off. Also good as a sun shade. Doesn’t drip all over.
I've been stubborn when it comes to carrying an umbrella, it seems so unnecessary when it's just a short walk. Recently, I was without a car and was catching the bus to and from work. Add one tropical storm in Houston, flash flood, I need an umbrella. I wanted something durable and easy to carry. The reviews of this are spot on. First, it comes with a sleeve and a leatherette case, it's compact and sturdy. The push button open is fast and easy and can happen all with one hand. My favorite feature is the close button. Press the button again while open and the umgrella collapses inward, making it easy to transition inside the car or a building without dripping and the old shake technique.
Great item! Great use for work
This reversed umbrella is fantastic. I had the reversed in a full size umbrella and it's just not convenient to carry something that large. I was skeptical about this size, but was pleasantly surprised to find it very sturdy, wind-proof (does not bend in strong wind) and the automatic feature puts it over the top! One note: when you push the automatic close button it closes the umbrella down but you have to manually push it back into the handle which does require two hands and a bit of strength.
I absolutely adore this umbrella. I can open and close it with one hand, which is amazing when you have to carry other things inside. It is a personal umbrella, but big enough for both my husband and I to fit under. My car used to get soaked from the last umbrella I have. This folds up so nicely I don't have that issue. Great everyday use, very smooth to open and close. Definitely worth every penny.
I purchased this umbrella as a replacement for one I bought on amazon and my husband lost. We get strong winds and heavy rain and instead of buying and throwing away 10 drugstore umbrellas a year, I opted to try this model. I like how it invests into itself - it makes it sturdier, easier to deploy, and less susceptible to being destroyed in the wind. So far the button has worked well to open the umbrella and the opening movement is smooth. Hoping it continues to perform well!
it is automatic and practically "explodes" when you hit the open button!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Thanks for creating a very nice item.
This is a very well built umbrella. I recently took it with me on a trip to Europe and it’s reverse folding feature worked great! I was able to take my wet umbrella into the hotel or a restaurant without having to worry about water dripping everywhere. Not only is the reverse folding feature extremely helpful the umbrella unfolds and folds with just the push of a button. I would highly recommend this umbrella for anyone looking to purchase one.
If you’re on the fence on investing this much on an umbrella, don’t worry! It’s totally worth it.
So I lost my umbrella and needed a new one. It literally came in the day it was raining and I got it just in time before class. It worked like a charm! It feels super sturdy and durable. The most expensive investment of an umbrella I have ever made, but for the functions it provides and convenient buttons, it was totally worth it. Hopefully it’ll last in the long run. Boston rain wind gusts are rough and I thought I might as well buy this because cheap umbrellas are useless if it just goes inside out anyway. Perfect quick one hand buttons getting inside and going out of buildings. Plus, very portable size! Too bad the downside is the casing for the umbrella becomes worthless after using it because it will no longer fit inside but oh well.
It is a good umbrella option.
