- Reverse Folding is really awesome for getting into a car or crowded locations
August 21, 2017
I have mixed feelings about this umbrella.
- Reverse Folding is really awesome for getting into a car or crowded locations, as you will not stab people when closing it. It also means that you won't get wet if you swipe yourself with it after closing because it is dual layer and the orange fabric will remain dry and be the exterior when folded.
- if you release the strap, this thing is self standing when folded. This is uber awesome if your in a restaurant that doesn't have an umbrella basket and you don't like putting your umbrella on the dirty floor.
- there are no storm flaps. I tried using this in a high wind raind storm and it was very difficult to control the umbrella. I do not recommend using this in high wind. The dual fabric is my stitched to together, so wind can theorhetically get in between the fabric. Not sure if that was making it worse.
-The handle. Its supposed to let you wear it on your wrist in order to free up your hands. Cool idea but not very functional. When i try to put it on my wrist the umbrella flops around and or hits my head. It's also super skinny, which isn't very comfortable for bigger hands.
-The coverage isn't very large. You get the coverage of a small folding umbrella and a folded length of at least twice the size.
Give this thing a normal handle, storm flaps and a larger diameter and it would easily be 5 stars.
