Wood Snapped After Three Uses - DO NOT BUY.
on November 6, 2014
It broke after three uses - no heavy wind (no noticeable wind at all, really). I was sitting on the train, tightening up the band to close it, and then I heard a snap. The wood of the stick had broken apart, and I barely moved it. I have owned this umbrella for a month but only used it three times - the first two times were unnecessary as it was only light rain and no wind.
DO NOT purchase. It looks good, but it's not sturdy at ALL.
