My wife and I travel a lot, and she is brutal on umbrellas. I've bought travel umbrellas before, but they are either too big and heavy, they aren't well designed, or they don't last long. This Samsonite model is well made, is well designed to fold down easily, and lasts long. Other umbrellas can be as light weight, but they often aren't designed well to fold down and you're left with a partially folded umbrella in your travel bag. This one can be folded away easily. Overall, one of the best travel umbrellas at the price.

If like me, you never have an umbrella when you need one, this is an awesome light weight item that is TINY, about the size of a longer wallet. So I just move this with my wallet into whatever bag I'm currently using. It really only just about covers you though so it's probably not for gusty rain but it definitely at least takes away that "uh-o I left the house while it was sunny and now I'm walking to the bus stop and it's about to pour". For what it is, it's also pretty sturdy. Note that this is a MANUAL open and close, so if you'd prefer the one button feature, you may need to go slightly heavier. Otherwise watch your fingers when you close it so you don't pinch the skin- ouch.

This umbrella is compact and fits nicely in a backpack. I had it for more than a month. So far, it is working well!

This umbrella is a bit too expensive for what it offers. It's really small, to begin with, and the open/close mechanism is quite sketchy since it doesn't open/close as efficiently as an umbrella at this price point should perform. I can buy a crappy umbrella at a street corner in NYC for $5, and I'd expect an Amazon purchase to be better than that product! Sadly, this is not a good buy.

I live where it rains or snows most of the time and I use this handy umbrella all the time. since it is light weight it will get damaged in high winds or mistreatment.

I did not expect it to be so small, and have no handle, but it is high quality. I take it to work in my bag, and it has performed flawlessly.

This is good to carry because it doesn't make your purse weigh a ton. This makes a really good parasol when it's hot and sunny.

This umbrella was perfect for my European trip. It fit nicely into my purse and was sturdy, but light weight!

Good Quality. Very Light Weight. Can carry in one of the small slots in the bag. Size is just about enough. Should trade handling for compact size. Highly recommended if you are buying it to have one just in case.

Product arrived as described. Overall length (when folded up and stored) is 9 inches, width 3 inches. Comes with a storage bag that is same material as umbrella. Umbrella material is similar to most umbrellas but seems less plastic and more like a windbreaker. This material seems like it might last longer under the stress of constant flexing (opening/closing) unlike most cheap umbrellas that seem to fracture or crack around the hinged-seems-connections due to plastic failure. Hinges and mechanisms seem to be slightly better construction than typical umbrellas. Main stem is light weight aluminum (black) and is easily bent however, overall height (when open) is 20inches which doesn't put a lot of force on this aluminum stem. Width (fully open) is 30inches and there are no unsightly graphics, logo's or print on the product. Hoping that the "Samonite" name means it's construction is more durable and long-lasting than most.....
