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.
This item was purchased as a gift for my mom. She loves to attend grand kids sporting events, but the weather can be very unpredictable. She was looking for an umbrella that was both easy to carry and gave have a decent amount of coverage from either rain or sun. She loved the print on the inside that you can see when it is open. The umbrella seems to give a decent amount of coverage. More than a compact purse umbrella, but less then a giant golf umbrella. The longer handle of this umbrella makes it more user friendly - more comfortable to carry. There is nothing worse that carrying a small umbrella and having to hold the base of that umbrella handle up by your shoulder while you walk. This solves that problem.
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!
I received this as a Christmas gift & LOVE it! I first saw it when a friend showed up to church with it mostly because I love sunflowers. But this double layer, easy to open umbrella has become my go to when it’s raining outside. Seems well made, & it makes me happy to look up & see the bright flower when it’s gray outside!!
I have had one of these umbrellas for a few years and have loved it. Many friends have commented on how helpful the reversible part is. So, this year for Christmas, I decided to get each of my close friends one of them. It was actually fun pairing up the right design with the right person. I was a bit late in ordering them (just last week - Jan. 2019 - yes, for Christmas, 2018!) so they are just receiving them now. I've only gotten great comments on the designs and colors. We're in the snow belt so the rains haven't descended as of this writing, but I hope they all enjoy their umbrella as much as I do.
This is the first umbrella I have owned that has this strange design where it opens the opposite way of traditional umbrellas, but I love it! This umbrella is so sturdy and unique. I really like the design where it's proper business on the outside while open, but a magical outer-space party on the inside. I'm not a fan of the oddly shaped handle as much as I thought I would be though. It hurts my bony wrist and I think just a regular strap would be better as an option to carry when not using (although I know it can provide hands free option, but it just didn't work well for me maybe because of the wind?). Overall, I'm a fan!
So far I have used it twice since I bought it. Takes a bit of getting used too. But It works great! I don't think i'll use the standard umbrella again. I wish it was bigger, like a golf umbrella but I still like it. The only thing I'd mention is that in a big wind it still acts like any umbrella. But it can't go inside out because it's made to do that anyway. I really like when you get into a car, close it and the wet top is on the inside. Not as much water all over the place or me. I would recommend!
It came better than i thought. The print is amazing. And the fact it stands by its self is amazing. It is a little heavy but it kept my fat self dry walking to work.its hard to find a big umbrella to keep me and my backpack dry. And this does it
It got blown inside out in 30 mph winds because of a sudden gust. Didn't look so good when it happened, but all it took to fix it was closing it and opening it back up once the wind died down. Doesn't seem to be built any better than the BAGAIL one I had, so the plastic pieces on the end of the rods could come off if you accidentally open the umbrella against something. After two whole uses, the thread holding the strap on is also starting to come off, so I doubt that'll stay on for very long, but it's at least holding on.
I don't care for the semi-gloss handle vs the matte ones some other brands have, but it doesn't slide around at least.
I love the design of this umbrella. It works really well and keeps me dry. Regular umbrellas only work until you have to get in the car, and then you end up as wet as though you hadn't even used it. This umbrella is great! I can close it up when I get in the car, and open it back up and dry it out later when I get home.
I have used umbrella a couple of times now and love the inverted concept. They have closed perfectly going a car and a doorway and I stayed much drier than I would have with a typical umbrella. So far, it has held up well in the rain. I am not sure how it will do in strong winds. It does seem a bit on the fragile side. I have gotten a lot of compliments on its uniqueness.It is a beautiful umbrella design.
