Totes Titanium vs GustBuster 43"
on September 2, 2009
I bought a Totes Titanium and a 43" GustBuster for comparisons purposes, they were in a similar price range.
Totes is a much lighter umbrella, it also broke on the 2nd day.
GustBuster is a much heaftier umbrella and I haven't seen it flip on me once.
I now walk around with a smile in high sideways winds because people are ducking for cover, losing their umbrellas, watching their umbrellas break in half, and the gust buster just stays open (it doesn't protect from the rain if you keep holding it up, but this is the best view of everyone else's umbrella breaking).
My only regret with the GustBuster is not getting a bigger one. I just ordered a 48" and a 62" just in case.
I hope my experience helps you make your choice.
