***DOWNGRADED*** from 3-star to 1-star,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Totes Men's Blue Line Golf-Size Vented Canopy Compact Umbrella (Apparel)
My revision is late because I usually do not use this umbrella unless it's poring cats&dogs.
I use a smaller,lightweight, but double canopy Samsonite umbrella for normal rainy days.
As for this Totes umbrella....
-Totes ruined this particular model when they chose polyester over nylon. This material is thicker than what other umbrellas use but that is NOT a good thing. First off, when walking the canopy makes a whoosh-whoosh-whoosh noise as if you are walking with a tent over your head. It is that heavy.
-The most unforgivable transgression is when you reach shelter and close it- What a Mess. The thick material bunches up like one of those thick shower curtains. And it gets water-logged ! Unbelievable.
I am 100% certain that this bunching-up happens to every user but they are not reporting it.
