4.0 out of 5 stars Seems good so far., November 7, 2012

This review is from: Totes Blue Line Auto Wooden Stick Umbrella (Apparel)
I have had this umbrella for a week now, after buying one each for my husband and myself - one in black and the other in the British tan colour. The colours were both nice and well represented by the image on the screen. Delivery was prompt.

They appear to be solid enough to handle light to moderately heavy winds but I doubt they would hold up to severe winds... but then I haven't had an umbrella that would.

The auto open mechanism is very handy. I appreciate (living in Seattle) the ability to quickly open up the brolly without struggling and getting wet in the mean-time. It doesn't seem to be flimsy, so I hope it will continue to work as well as it currently does.

The reason I didn't give this umbrella 5/5: Firstly, the "wooden" handle seems to be a laminate product or a very cheap looking wood on close inspection. Secondly, the black umbrella was missing one of the two nails that secure the TOTES logo to the handle. Nothing major, but to get a 5/5 rating it would need to have all the little things covered.

I'm sure this umbrella will see plenty of use this winter, so if my review changes I'll update it accordingly. For now, I'm satisfied with the purchase and for $20 I would easily recommend it to a friend.
