    Overall this umbrella is of fair quality (3 out of 5 stars). The product is designed well and performs more than adequately. It falls short, however, of being a truly quality product for 3 reasons: the nylon used for the umbrella is only suitable for light to medium rain (it would not be adequate for heavy rain); part of the handle is painted plastic instead of being full rubber and it is not truly golf-size (it is only medium size).To make this umbrella worthy of 5 stars, totes needs to use heavier duty nylon, construct the handle completely out of rubber (the painted plastic is less durable and will degrade much quicker)and make the opened size a bit closer to golf-size. The auto-open feature works but does not have a precise feel to it. To end this review on a positive note, the nylon cover is constructed of heavy duty nylon and is the best umbrella cover I have ever seen (it fits perfectly, looks excellent and is very durable). The securing strap is much wider than normal which results in better stowing of the umbrella (with or without the cover).In conclusion, this umbrella is decent and has some good features but it definitely falls short of being a great product.

    I bought a Totes umbrella 7 years ago. It served me very well. Eventually it was destroyed by the wind. Just for the heck of it I emailed Totes customer service asking if I was covered by the lifetime warranty for "manufacturing defects." To me, 7 years of heavy duty service (I walk to and from work and used that umbrella a lot) was perfectly acceptable, but the customer affairs rep said I was indeed covered by the warranty and just needed to send in the tag from the umbrella, a fabric sample for color matching and $5 for shipping. I did as instructed, and just 1 week later, my replacement umbrella (the model listed here) has arrived! Looks like a great umbrella. It's not often that a company exceeds my expectations like this. I'll definitely buy Totes from now on.

    I live in Japan and have to lot of walking between home and the station and then the station and the office. This is a really convenient umbrella because it is relatively light and is nice and wide when open. I but it in the outside pocket of my back pack and don't have to worry about the weather any more.

    The only problem that I have had is that I accidentally hit the release button a few times while I was using it and it closed and gave me a little shaking shower of rain.

    Hopefully not a mistake I will repeat. Other than that, it is well worth the price.

    As always, Amazon shipped fast. Got the brella with plenty of time to wrap before Christmas. I've used it a half dozen times and it functions perfectly. The size is great for me, I'm a big man. I really like the auto-collapse feature when getting in the car or approaching your destination. It folds the umbrella down with one button push, PLUS it knocks most of the rain off itself! Construction seems to be very sturdy, but I haven't had a chance to get in any high winds with it yet. Somebody complained about how hard it was to reset the spring...ARE YOU KIDDING? My 3 year old daughter can do it. Great purchase.

    This umbrella has far exceeded my expectations. The auto-open is quick and powerful with just the push of a button. I have used this in light and moderate rains with moderate wind gusts. It has held up better than two other umbrellas that I had blow inside-out. The open size, for me, is just right. Large enough for two people walking close, or me and two of my kids, yet small enough to still be convenient. The handle could be just a bit larger, but I have very large hands. For the average person, the handle should be just right. The handle is part plastic, but it is still comfortable, feels sturdy, and I have had no problems with it wearing down. The auto-close just closes the top, you still have to push in the handle to set the spring for the next use. Some people said this was a pain, but you have to do something to set the spring for auto-open/close. Once the top is closed, you can step inside out of the rain and push the handle down. It doesn't seem any harder to push in than any other auto-open umbrella I have used. The auto-close is very fast, which does a great job of shaking off any rain still on the top. The strap is wide and keeps the umbrella nice and compact for storage.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this umbrella. The best I could find under $30.

    Just what I was looking for - a compact umbrella that opens up to a fairly large area and has both the auto open and auto close function. The khaki/tan color is darker than I expected making this more of a masculine color/style and is darker than indicated in the picture. I do like the umbrella.

    This is one of the best folding umbrellas. On rainy days when I take the dog for her potty-walks, this is handy enough to tuck under one arm while scooping up her business with the other. It is so much better than comparable umbrellas. It is also a little larger, which protects my shoulders as well. I am happy with it.

    I was a little hesitant buying this given some of the bad reviews.
    However, I can say I have been pleasantly surprised. So much so, I got one for my father in Miami, FL.

    This is the largest Auto-Open/Close umbrella I have ever seen. Given its size I was worried it would be weak at opening & closing; boy was I wrong!
    The umbrella's mechanism is so strong you could almost impale someone if you opened it against them. This umbrella has no trouble opening & closing in severe storms- 40mph winds & hail in late June here in Montana. Tubular and hexagonal steel sliding rod mechanism opens and closes in about half a second. As such it's perfect for getting in and out of a car. In extremely strong head winds the canopy gives a little and slides down a tad in big gusts but springs instantly back into tension. This is actually a good thing as it protects the umbrella from snapping off at the rod in 40+mph gusts.

    Surprisingly, the fabric of the unit is very good too. It sheds water- probably due to a very tight weave. This is awesome; because once you come out of the rain and close it, just a few shakes and its virtually all dry except for a couple of microscopic H2O beads- again, perfect for the car!

    I got the Black & Khaki one to make it less likely to be pilfered. I tend to lose a couple of umbrellas a year, and since I like this one so much I even put my Email address & phone # on it with a silver sharpie. I could care less if it looks Dorky. No one ever returns umbrellas!

    Amazing for the price. I got mine overnight just before 4 days of late June storms- glad I have Amazon Prime- as shipping would have been more than the umbrella's cost! P.S Free streaming Movies with Prime now- cancelled NF.
