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 am thoroughly upset with this umbrella! I couldn’t get it to close this morning and it was raining cats and dogs! It had to remain open the whole ride to work on the train and also on the bus going to work this morning! I don’t know what happened, but this is AWFUL! I don’t recommend this umbrella!!
UPDATE- I changed it from 1 star to 3 due to the fact that the seller was very responsive and helpful. They refunded me, as it was impossible to return an umbrella in the ‘up’ position. It is a fantastic concept, hopefully I just received a bum unit.
Love the look. Nice handle for easy holding on your wrist while operating. The concept of an upside down umbrella makes sense, however, the water gets trapped inside and leaks all over the place when you put it down. Great for keeping you dry, not so great for keeping the floor dry (or leaving a trail of water). Also, the tips of the umbrella get damaged easily as you have to set it down on them. Inserting the umbrella in the carry bag is not very easy either with the upside down concept.
Arrived damaged. Did not even get to use it. One of the tips was broken. Not a good sign for durability especially with Florida's rainy afternoons in the summer.
Update: I was contacted by the manufacturer and they offered a refund. I will try and repair and see if I can get some use out of it and see how it holds up. Very quick response from them and that is appreciated.
The umbrella is beautiful and the unusual folding method is cool. I bought two for my elementary school aged daughters and they’re not perfect for elementary. For some reason they are low. The points are fairly pointy for elementary and I’m always worried a child is going to get poked in the eye. I wish it had chunky points. The covers of the points seem to let go easily. It’s an okay umbrella but I’d rather have a $4.99 ikea umbrella instead.
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!
I can only speak to the color of the umbrella. We ordered the bright violet color, and what we received was a dark flower almost the color of the black umbrella it was so dark. You could barely distinguish the two colors. I gave it three stars as it looks nicely made, but the colors are way off. The person we bought it for likes bright purple so this was definitely not going to work for us.
It was raining before I bought this and when I ordered it. And of course it hasn't rained since I received it. But, there is more showers in the forecast for next week so I'll get to use it then. I really love the colors of this umbrella. The theme "GOTHIC WINDOWS" is beautiful. I love a cheerful color for umbrellas and this one fits the bill. The only thing I dislike is that the price was WAY TOO HIGH! i GAVE IT A 3 STAR RATING BECAUSE OF THE PRICE AND THE BUTTON TO PRESS IS A LITTLE IFFY.
I bought this item 6 weeks ago and now it won't stay open or closed anymore so it's completely useless. Return window has closed so I'm just out the money now.
EDITED TO ADD: The company contacted me after I posted my original 1-star review and offered to replace the defective item or refund the money. I changed my review to 3-stars because I believe good customer service is important. I love this umbrella, maybe mine was just a lemon.
This came up when I was searching for kids' umbrella. It is much bigger than I expected for my kid. For adults it is a good size. It is very bulky. It has two layers. Each layer add some weight of course. Not very easy to put it in the carry case either. I wouldn't have bought this if I saw it before. It looks nice on the listing.
Update: The seller contacted me and offered a full refund for the defective product. That was excellent customer service, so I have upgraded my rating from one star to three. Due to the faulty product, I do not think that a higher rating is warranted, but A+ on the customer service. It takes me five to ten tries to make it stay open--not what I want in a downpour.
