On the plus side, they have a large canopy which you can share with someone else if needed, a manageable size when closed, and they really do handle wind gusts fairly well.
On the negative side, they are not windproof, but in fairness, there's really no such thing. I've had two of them blow out in serious wind gusts, and when that happens it snaps the nylon threads that attach the canopy to the ribs. The umbrella will still work fine after you revert it, but that's when you need to send it back to Shedrain. I've done it, and they are great about replacing it.
Also, because it's larger even when closed, it's easy to get the upper canopy ribs (there are two canopies) caught in your computer bag or whatever if you put it in a tote or bag (without its sheath) and pull it out -- you can pull one of the canopy suports and break it, etc. This can cause it to sag when open or to fail to close properly for stowing (and if you put it in the sheath, that loose rib can get hung up when you're trying to take it out, making things worse). Anyway, just send it back and get it fixed/replaced.
None of those possibilities should prevent you from buying this umbrella. Take it from an Oregonian. Believe me, we know rain!
After a shipping snafu, I finally received this item and opened it in a light rain with 5-10 mph winds (I check my phone's weather apps religiously). Within 5 minutes, the following had occurred:
1. One corner of the canopy had torn off from the spoke
2. One of the center spokes holding the canopy came off
3. The locking mechanism wouldn't close, so my umbrella was fully extended with only the velcro fastener holding the canopy closed. I had to wiggle the holding metal pin out of the slot and force the lock so I could return it to Amazon.
I'm looking into other brands/models now and hoping the construction will be better.
