My last Totes umbrella lasted over 12 years, then I lost it. So I purchased another one and I hope this will last 12 years too. I've never had a Totes break on me, I just lose them.

This self opening and closing titanium umbrella fits neatly in the side slot of my computer back pack. It's lightweight, I don't even know it's there. Take it out of the sleeve, undo the velcro retainer and push the button, pop! it opens. Walk to the door and push the button and it closes again. (Just the top part folds down to let you get through the doorway.)

It's big enough for just me, I don't think two people could easily share. But that's OK, I'm usually by myself on my walk to the office.

It's a good buy and Totes' warranty covers it for life for any defects. I'm very satisfied with it.

Totes makes the best umbrellas. And you get a lifetime warranty with it. I had one for 20 years and it finally gave out. Totes sent me a brand new replacement.

I am very happy with this purchase. It is very small and easy to carry in my messanger bag. It opens easily with a push button and has large coverage against the rain. The wind blew mine inside out once but it was not broken or disabled at all.

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.

My previous review of the product is below...I wanted to follow up however, to say that I promtply received a very nice letter back from Totes customer service and they not only returned my check (for the cost of shipping) but they sent me two (2) new umbrellas to replace the one I sent back. While I have not used the new ones yet and cant say how well they hold up I can say that Totes does stand behind their product so I give their customer service a 5+ STAR rating.....

+++++

Maybe I was just unlucky but my titanium umbrella broke the first day I used it..It actually broke the second time I opened it. Apparently one of the rivets broke on one of the arms so that when it opened it just got all bent out of shape. I'm sending it back for a replacement but so far im not impressed to say the least. Typically I buy cheap $2 or $3 umbrellas that have lasted a whole lot longer than an hour!!!!!

Hopefully the replacement will do better...

I really don't even know why I'm bothering posting this, the seller will just restart selling under a different name...But anyways, don't buy from the current lowest price seller SILVERHOOKS LLC. It's not a Totes Titanium, it's a cheap knock-off Chinese brand. It didn't even come in a box, but wrapped in a mailing package. I'm getting sick of Amazon allowing any ass off the street to sell items. It's getting worse than Ebay around here.

FYI, I ordered a 2nd one b/c my first REAL totes broke after its 2nd use. I was hoping to get another shot at trying it out, b/c this umbrella is the perfect size that I need. Guess I'll try something else.

Totes has really done it this time. With the titanium braces you won't have to worry anymore about your umbrella turning inside out. Easy 1 button open/close feature. Well worth the price Folds to 9 inches when closed. Great buy.

I've owned one of these for the past 5 years and my wife is now on her second, as she misplaced the first.

While it's a little pricey for a folding umbrella, you do actually get a high quality item. In 5 years of usage, it has never turned inside out or failed in any way.

Although many folding umbrellas open with the press of a button, this one closes the same way. Maybe that doesn't sound like its important, but when you are carrying a package and only have one hand free, it makes all the difference in the world.

Mine goes right inside my "commuter" bag and is always with me. Of course, I don't put it into the bag while its wet, but I would hope that most people have enough sense not to do that anyway.

If you want a folding umbrella, look no further.

A very good umbrella, very wind resistsnt, but not wind proof -- my last one got totaled in a high wind. But I ordered another, because its otherwise a good choice.

I've been impressed with most totes umbrellas, and I love this one! It's one click open, one click closed design is very reliable and the umbrella overall the construction is great for a compact umbrella. Honestly, it's the best compact umbrella I've ever had. But I think there is more room for improvement, hence the "almost"... a sturdier arc assembly would be welcome because I'm afraid of what will happen in high winds...
