It keeps you dry, it doesn't block your vision, and the best part is that it keeps other people's umbrella's out of your face!
Be advised, you should let it dry off if you are closing it up for the rest of the day. The plastic can get kind of stuck together a bit because of the trapped dampness. But, it dries naturally in a very short time.
If you want a really GOOD umbrella, the Classic Clear Bubble Umbrella by Totes is absolutely the one to own.
To exercise the lifetime warranty I would have to pay to ship it back to totes (too much for a large, bulky, fairly heavy umbrella like this) and pay an extra $5 ... no thanks! For that amount of money I could easily just buy a new umbrella.
I am very disappointed in totes and the quality!
I contacted totes consumer services about this and I actually only had to send back the wraparound closure strap that gathers the material to indicate the color--not the handle strap--and the white nylon tag stitched into
the inside material ½ to indicate the style--not the warranty card (which you can do in a regular envelope for 44 cents). They told me to discard the remaining umbrella. For $5 I was allowed to choose any umbrella from their collection (I didn't want to take a chance on another bubble umbrella). - VERY HAPPY about this kind of customer service. The new umbrella I received very fast in the mail afterwards seems to be very sturdy and well made - and - if anything goes wrong with it during its lifetime, I know now how to exercise the "lifetime warranty".
1 YR UPDATE: I've had this umbrella more than 1 year, and it isn't broken. I don't use it so often, now, because I switched to a folding golf umbrella. Also, there is a reason why it comes coated with talc. If it has been sitting folded for a time, you have to peel it away from itself. Anyone who has unfolded a stored vinyl pool toy knows this sort of peeling. The plastic isn't degraded or weakened, it just adheres like a band-aid to itself, especially if it's been in the back of a hot car. I think if you tried to force it open without first peeling the folds apart, the tines might break. So, it is fairly solid, but the clear bubble effect was achieved by using pool toy material.
So far, I have used this umbrella maybe 9 or 10 times since purchased (I live in Washington state so it gets used!). Without exception, closing it up after use has resulted in me pinching the skin on my fingers. The closure lever you squeeze to activate is way up under the open umbrella. Mine is very hard to press down enough to close it and once I get the needed grip on the lever to do so, it invariably snags me when it works.
I would pay more for the same umbrella if it were collapsible and had the push button closer to the handle. I will continue to use it with the hope the lever will either break-in and eventually require less of a grip to activate or that I will find a way to grip it very firmly that high up the shaft without pinching myself.
