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.
I love this umbrella! My only complaint is that it isn't very compact, but I'm willing to overlook that because it has so many other great features. The colors are vibrant, and I love that it doesn't flip up when it's windy. It closes up so that the water stays inside to drip dry, rather than get all over the car. The handle on it is convenient, too. If I'm not using the umbrella, it easily attaches to my tote bag for easy carrying. I don't use the storage bag much, but it's a nice idea. I've gotten several compliments on this thing. My boss says it has "all the bells and whistles". LOL
The handle was broken off the umbrella upon unboxing. Inside the plastic packaging, the handle was separated from the rest of the umbrella. Upsetting, I wanted this umbrella but now concerned about durability for replacement.
So I bought this inside-out umbrella without really taking a lot of time to investigate it. I broke my old one and it was basically spring monsoon season in the midwest, so I liked the flower design and assumed it was a regular umbrella, clicked to add it to my cart and bought it without reading the description or looking into the reviews. When it arrived, I wondered why the box was long and opened it to set my eyes on something very very different than what I thought I had gotten. So this umbrella is inside-out and has a oval handle. The handle is padded with waterproof material and very comfortable. It's also awesome for hanging on your wrist, or on a hanger in the closet. I unwrapped it and opened it. Much to my astonishment and delight, this is a really well-designed and well made umbrella!! It also looks amazing. I like that after I use it, the wet top of the umbrella is folded inside and away from me, thus keeping me dry unlike a traditional umbrella that when folded, dumps water all over my legs or car. Once in awhile one arm of the umbrella doesn't open right away, but I just gently pull down and it pops easily in place. Well made, looks good and well designed.
I opened it to make sure it was good before I gave it to my stepmom for mothers day and it didn't close. This was a huge waste of my money, I could have bought my stepmom concert tickets, taken her out to eat, gotten flowers, got stuff for a cake, gotten her nails done, gotten her some toilet paper, filled up her gass tank, done anything exept try to be thoughtful and get her this useless umbrella that shes never even gonna see but is expecting! So thank you! Thank you for helping me disappoint my stepmother for mothers day! As if she wasn't already disappointed by life and really needed this, thanks for giving her just one more thing that sucks. This umbrella. This umbrella sucks. Don't buy it. There are other umbrellas, probably in the 'simular to this item' section, that open AND close AUTOMATICALLY. Or you could disappoint your mother. Your choice.
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 bought one of these on QVC.com for $20 like 2 years ago because I had never seen anything like it before...Well shortly after buying it somehow it went missing!
Long story short an ad popped up on Facebook one day for the same type of umbrella… And it was only $12.99 if ordered through Facebook. I ended up ordering another one which I still have to this day and if you really want my opinion I would definitely spend the extra couple dollars and get the one on QVC. You will have more print options to choose from and is made much better all around ..I hope this helps!
Update: OwenKyne apparently saw this review and has sent a replacement umbrella. I will be honest to say I am surprised and feel that this company stands behind their product. The other umbrellas have been holding up nicely and since seeing our umbrellas other have become interested. I therefore bought a couple more as gifts. Good product - excellent company. Therefore I am changing my review from 1 star to 4 stars. ----- Due to my umbrella consistently being borrowed I bought several of these for my co-workers. When they arrived everyone was excited as we tend to have pop-up storms in the late afternoon. This is a perfect item for everyone to have at the office. Well, all the umbrellas didn't arrive at the same time. So I presented them in mid march. Yesterday - a storm slide through and my coworker grabbed her umbrella, prepped it to open when she stepped out and the handle just snapped right off. Now it is unusable. My frustration is that it is no longer returnable even though she had it for less than a month and only used it once. Hoping this is a fluke and the others hold up. Otherwise I will be out quite a bit of $
I ordered this umbrella because my coworker had one very similar to it. Although the box it arrived in was not damaged, the umbrella was. The stem was completely bent into a rounded shape, as if someone had used it as a walking stick and leaned on it too heavily. I could not open the umbrella because the curve would not allow the ribs to open. I am ordering another one, but by a different manufacturer. I hope this one will not be warped.
I received this umbrella as a gift from my workplace. It is so pretty. Also it does what it says, it keeps the rain from the umbrella off of you when you close it up. So nice. The only issue I have is I have trouble getting it to lock in place when I open it. It doesn’t happen every time so I’m thinking it may be operator error. The handle is awesome.
The first small gust of wind that caught the umbrella broke it. Also, the type of material that is used doesn't allow the umbrella to dry in an acceptable amount of time. It will still be wet 24 hours later. It is hard to dry by hand because it's awkward to hold it and try to dry it at the same time. What it has going for it is its beauty. When I close the umbrella to get into the car, it still gets wet on the inside because it's exposed to the rain when folded. So you have both the umbrella wet. My car/house is no less dry with this umbrella than with a cheapie. If I had not received it as a Christmas gift, I would have sent it back for a refund. I do want to add that I may have received a lemon. That does happen. Manufacturing is not perfect. I hope others have had great results.
