2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't last long, April 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: WindJammer by ShedRain 2044A 58-Inch Arc Vented Auto Open Jumbo Umbrella (Sports)
I'm on Amazon today to find a better umbrella to replace this one. I bought this because I had lost four or five cheap, mini umbrellas while walking to school in the rain when they got turned inside out by the wind. I had hoped that with the vents, this one would fare a bit better. I've had it for about 4 months, and already two of the supports have snapped, and are beyond repair. While technically, the umbrella still functions, the side with the broken supports sags giving me a semi-circle of coverage.

Find anything that works? I have had bad luck with umbrellas too. Brookstone used to have a great one, but apparently they have gone down in quality.

I live in a very windy area and found the Gustbuster umbrella to hold up to wind extraordinarily well.
