I used to own a Gustbuster Metro 43-in folding umbrella. It was dependable, but being a larger person, I always still seemed to get wet. At least I could depend on the umbrella from blowing inside out. One would think 43 inches would be fine to cover you, but most of the time, a shoulder would get wet, or my back, and definitely the bottoms of my legs.

The parts started to wear down after several uses, the elastic wasn't bouncing back anymore, so the canopy would come off from its ribs, and I'll mention again I was still getting wet.

So I opted for a Totes Superdome Umbrella. It's a double-vented automatic that opens up to a whopping 70-inches, yet folds down to a mere 13.5-inches so it can still fit your briefcase. It even auto-collapses too. The canopy is securely attached to the rib so I'm happy to say that it doesn't come undone even if the canopy becomes waterlogged. It was strong enough to hold up to 40 mph gusts we were experiencing one day.

I'm definitely drier now, and happy I have a Totes on hand.

This is an "OK" umbrella, really average in size, somewhat waterproof (rain tends to drip through from time to time after being exposed to rain for more than 5-10 minutes). The umbrella can be difficult to close with one hand, often requiring you to lean against the door jamb, building or whatever is close to snap it shut.

While an "OK" umbrella, it does not meet the expectations set by the marketing staff that wrote the content advertising the umbrella.

It's not double-vented. It's not even single-vented! It's a nice big black collapsible umbrella that feels reasonably solid, but there's nothing remotely like a vent anywhere on the thing, so it's a mystery to me why this product is described as "Vented canopy for superb wind resistance" and "The Double Vented Canopy provides venting to help secure the umbrella canopy in strong wind."

Exactly what I was looking for--large top with collapsible handle. Easy to carry, easy to pack for trips, and easy to store. Opens up large enough to protect all of a person rather than just head and shoulders. A very professional looking umbrella that is easy to use. A wonderful product.

The umbrella is not vented as stated in the product description. As a result it is very difficult to handle in windy conditions, particulary in relationship to its size. Amazon offers a Totes double vented umbrella of the same size and type (collapsible) for $26.00. Based on experience a 54 inch canopy collapsible unvented umbrella is an item to avoid.

Was looking for a compact umbrella that could still comfortably cover 2 adults without our backs getting wet. The search is over. Love this umbrella! Compact enough to travel with, yet it does the job of a golf umbrella.

Keeps the rain off me. The auto open and auto close work nicely so getting through doorways is simple. The size when folded is pretty compact; enough so that it would fit in a backback or large bag. When open, the umbrella is much bigger than it looks, and large enough for 2 people.

This is a durable, yet compact umbrella...everything you'd want in an umbrella. When closed, the size is perfect, but it opens to a large canopy that protects you from wind and rain. It is so convenient and effortless. I ended up buying two because my husband kept taking mine!

After ruining two cheap umbrellas purchased at Target in as many months, I finally decided to get a quality umbrella. I have had this umbrella for ~2 weeks and have used it almost every day (springtime in Boston). It is easy to see that the metal skeleton of this umbrella is far more robust than the cheaper umbrellas I have used in the past. Also, the vented top makes handling it in the wind much easier. The auto-open and auto-close are exactly as advertised. The one qualm I have is the lack of a wrist strap on the handle, but that is more a matter of personal preference than actual functionality.

Update-
My umbrella failed catastrophically after 2 1/2 years. It was definitely on its way out, and a big gust of wind destroyed it. However, it was worth every cent. I am considering using the lifetime warranty, but I also don't want to be without an umbrella for so long. RIP, old friend.

The umbrella works well but it isnt what one would think when the words golf umbrella are uttered. It is perfectly functional...but its more of a "mini golf" umbrella. You'd be hard pressed to keep the rain off of two people under this thing. Although it is good at what it does.
