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 the concept of the inverted umbrella, but this one specifically is very cheap. All the parts are plastic, including the handle, which came completely off after the third use. The plastic ring that holds the top of the umbrella onto the fabric has cone unglued as well. Very poorly made, Don't buy this one.
I ordered this umbrella to use in college since I lost the previous domed clear umbrella that I had and jsut wanted something to ensure that I was going to stay dry because for some reason I hate rain. When it first came I was super excited about it, it was really cute and I even opened it once and closed it to check it out and it worked great. I loved the way it looked and felt. Then, some of my friends came over to my house one day and noticed it, since the pattern is on the outside, and asked me what it was since It was weirdly placed on the handle to have been a traditional umbrella. I grabbed it and opened it up to show them, and it worked great again. Everyone was super impressed and just in love with the product as I was. Then we were headed out to leave so I went to close the umbrella and it would not budge. I tried forcing the button a few more times at the top and still nothing, it wouldn't close. My other friends tried as well, and they couldn't get it to go. "Well that's what you get for opening an umbrella indoors" my one superstitious friend said. Maybe she's right, but probably not since the first time it opened and closed was indoors too. I can't even try to return this because it's stuck in the open position. I would have to get myself some sort of giant box or something to ship it back In. This was just disappointing and a waste of money. Needless to say my once impressed friends won't be buying one for themselves anymore either, so maybe that's good at least.
REALLY wanted to like this. I had a brand name one and this was way cuter. But first day I tried to use it (today), I opened it and it’s bent. Alright, nbd, I can still use a bent umbrella. But when I tried to close it, it became stuck, and I’m out in the rain, wrangling my umbrella because it won’t fit in my car open.
Pro: it’s cute. It’s inside out. Con: it’s not sturdy enough at all. I hadn’t even used it and it bent. I’m not strong or anything, so that’s saying something.
The print of this umbrella is lovely, however I was not at all happy with the "mechanism" of this umbrella. The shaft and the stability of the umbrella is weak and you have to play with it to stay open. Unfortunately, I waited too long to return it and am stuck with it!
This is a beautiful umbrella, don’t get me wrong. But the handle will not stay on, and its kind of a pain to fully open which can be kinda frustrating when its raining outside. I’m not ready to replace it, because it still works, but i do get a bit wet before i can get it to be fully operational.
This is a really pretty umbrella. Unfortunately, it is not at all durable. After a single time of use, one of the tips broke, allowing the top layer to flap independently from the bottom layer. By now (several months later), 4 of the tips broke. I just got done sewing it together and I think it will work having been fixed. But this product really should be more sturdy!
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.
I really like the concept of it being windproof with its inverted design. But, it's 31.5 inches long, and I'm only 5'2". The handle is a loop, so you can hang it from your wrist. But, when I tried this, I had to keep my arm raised to keep the umbrella from hitting the floor. Also, the handle design being what it is won't allow the user to hang it from a shopping cart. Finally, I was surprised at its weight. I will go back to my little folded umbrella that I can just put in my purse.
First time I used it, found out the button to open the umbrella doesn't open it automatically. It takes both hands to open the umbrella. I was in my car, went to open the umbrella and it buckled from the wind as well. The umbrella in the closed position looks half open unless you immediately Velcro the strap. It's just more flimsy than I'm used to.
