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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

At first glance 2 years ago, this umbrella seemed flimsy. However, since it was so small and lightweight for carrying around in a purse, I decided to give it chance. The umbrella has held up surprisingly well, even through several seasons of weekly use. That being said, it may not be best choice for you. Yes, in very heavy rain, one of my arms usually gets wet, despite using this umbrella. Don't even think about sharing it with another person; it's way too small to accommodate more than one person at a time. In rainstorms with wind, this does little to shield you from the water. The umbrella is not wide enough, nor are the edges curved downward enough to offer much protection from sideways rain. In extreme wind, it can blow inside-out. However, it’s still the umbrella I carry around in my daily work bag. For an average rain or snow shower, this umbrella does the trick. As other reviewers have pointed out, its lightweight construction is a huge selling point compared with other brands. The lightweight design also helps it dry quickly. After several months of use, the fabric from one of the spokes on my umbrella came loose, but that was quickly and easily repairable with a needle and some thread. I recommend this umbrella for commuting to and from work, but not for hiking trips or for areas with regular extreme weather events.
