This is a very nice reversible umbrella I never have used one like this before, It opens up the opposite way of other ones and has a thick windproof Double layer material to keep the rain off of you. Has a long handle and very easy to hang up after use because of the hooked end of the handle. It also comes with a cover than you can store it in when not in use, It is quite large so can fit more than 1 person very easy under it. I like the way it looks when open has a different shape to it that most of them.

This product is junk! Unfortunately I am 3 days past the period for returns according to Amazon. Received it and loved the look but only used this umbrella 3 times! The third time as pictured, one of the rods shot right through the top of the umbrella. If there was an option I would give this NO STARS for a rating.
My current Umbrella has seen better days. I decided to upgrade. What a nice upgrade it is! I was hesitant on ordering this type of umbrella, because I didn't know how it would holdup, etc. It's also noticeably lighter. This would make a great Christmas Gift for those that can't lift much, and have problems with a traditional Umbrella. The only question I have is how the Velcro strap will holdup, but it seems to be of a higher quality then my previous umbrella. Definitely get this !
It rains where I’m from, and it’s windy. I saw people around the city commuting with this style umbrella and figured why not give it a shot. An umbrella isn’t something you want to spend more than $20 max on because they usually get forgotten or misplaced. The first few times I used this umbrella it worked fine, I actually loved that it moved the opposite direction and what normally would cause an umbrella to snap and be discarded didn’t apply since mechanically this is built in reverse. However, after maybe just a few uses this wonderful reverse feature had given way and had actually caused me to get soaked twice! It’s also gotten jammed and impossible to close. I really am now disappointed in this purchase and will probably just revert to my old $5 buy and toss umbrella from a bodega or street vendor.
What I love: It's light Easy to open easy to hold with one hand it stands on it's own which is great for public places - no propping it and finding it laying on it's side. Why it's not my only umbrella: It's not big enough to share with another adult (that's okay - those are huge) the 2nd layer make it difficult to prop (I usually drape the umbrella over my sons door while getting him in and out of his car seat. this umbrella does't stay as well as those bigger golf umbrellas)
I love it and have bought it as a gift twice, and one for myself!
This was my second time buying this umbrella, it was for my friend who saw it and was in love with it. Its definitely the best umbrella I bought, I’ve had mine for almost a year now and it’s as if it’s new! Great quality and love the design which keeps you dry al the time I kinda struggle with the handle sometimes since it’s a different design but I love that I can put the handle around my wrist so it works perfectly for me
I was actually excited to order this umbrella because I love the design and it seemed so convenient. When it arrived at my house, I was immediately a little on edge about the product because it just felt cheap. Well, I opened it and closed it a couple of times just to test it and it kinda worked. The open/close button would stick and the umbrella would either close on it's on or would jam open and become damn near impossible to close. However, I decided to gamble and give it a fair shot. I used the umbrella ONLY 3 times before it completely refused to close for me as I was getting into my vehicle, completely soaking me in the process. After several minutes of standing outside my car getting soaked, I finally was able to get the damn thing closed again. 1/10. Will definitely NOT be ordering this again and will most likely just go back to a rain coat.
I like the concept idea but maybe it's just the umbrella sent to me but when I engage it to open, often or does not work correctly so I have to own and close it several times for the flipping mechanic to work or I have to manually push one corner over which is counterproductive when it's raining. Meh.
I just got this, but the build quality and design makes me think it will last a few years. The umbrella is excellent, but the carrying case is near useless. You will waste a few minutes of your life trying to jigsaw the umbrella back into the case. I just tossed the case.
Okay, I thought this was going to be amazing but shoddy construction was an issue from the start!!! I thought it was the fault of a strong wind that made this collapse so I kept using it! I made it through the rain and then I couldn't close the umbrella it was stuck so rather than continue struggling with it I left it in the garbage. If I I could I would return the whole mangled piece of garbage and get my money back! Don't be fooled, buy a different umbrella!
The first time I got to use this, it was POURING down rain. I had a hard time getting it to stay open and when I finally got it to stay up, then I couldn’t get it back down. So I am standing out in the rain, fighting with this umbrella and getting soaked. I finally just had to throw it in the back seat, opened. I went on amazon to see about a refund, but they wanted me to send it back. There is no way to send back an open umbrella that won’t close, so I am out the money.
