    The best thing about this umbrella is the compact size and the ease with which it automatically opens. Step out of your car, press a button, swoosh!, and umbrella is open. Very easy to open. The small size makes it very convenient to carry in a back pack or regular size purse. Closing the umbrella is more challenging, you have to use a bit of extra strength to retract and push down the umbrella stem. I also really like the appearance of the umbrella, and the handle - simple and modern. Some downsides: After using this umbrella through about a dozen rainy days this year, I noticed the steel arms holding up the umbrella canopy are starting to rust. Also, on a particularly windy day, the canopy flipped inside out, and a couple of steel arms became twisted out of shape. The result is that the umbrella does open, but not all the way as it used to. There is a lifetime warranty, and Totes will replace the umbrella, but you have to pay about $10.00 or so shipping/handling plus the cost to ship it to Totes.

    Since I commute on a train, I needed a small and lightweight umbrella for those wonderful Texas thunderstorms. Looking around for a while, I finally settled on this model by Totes. In a nutshell, here's what I thought of the Totes Micro Auto Open/Auto Close Umbrella.

    GOOD
    - very small and compact, lightweight design
    - auto open feature is very nice. Just push a button and you're good to go!
    - also includes a protective sleeve for storage

    BAD
    - auto close feature just collapses the canopy, you still have to manually collapse the telescoping handle
    - until you manually collapse the telescoping handle, you can't use the auto open button again to deploy the canopy
    - the end of the handle features a clear lucite that can crack easily

    The Signature micro umbrella is NOT the same as the Micro umbrella. The Signature micro is 9" long when closed, the Micro is 7 1/2". In addition, it arrived broken (and not shipping damage). I am returning the Signature Micro and ordering the Micro 7 1/2" one directly from Totes.com. (A little more expensive, but includes shipping)

    Good umbrella. Haven't had it open in high winds yet so I don't know how sturdy it is, but it seems well made. The only annoying feature of the umbrella is that is hard to open without using the automatic open feature. Basically it's hard to open from the extended pole-closed umbrella position, so you have to close the pole part as well. It's only annoying and not really a problem. It may also loosen up as it gets used more.

    This is an okay umbrella. The auto open and auto close is not as smooth as it could be. The canopy is decent size, but if you are walking a lot in heavy rain you might want something better. This is best suited for tucking away in the suitcase just in case and dashing from car to building. The color is nice and it is fairly light weight.

    Size: One SizeColor: Leopard Verified Purchase
    I wanted an umbrellla that would 1/ open with the push of a button; 2/ provide adequate coverage; and still 3/ be small enough to fit in most of my purses for those unexpected showers and 4/ not be my usual basic black. This umbrella met my qualifications for the most part. I'm enjoying the print (and the "quick-draw" push button!) whenever I use it; it is a perfect size to fit in my purses (though it adds a bit of weight); it provides fairly adequate coverage (though not as much as much huge golf umbrella! Not really complaining- just noting the difference.) I'm thinking of buying a couple more in different prints.

    One of the metal ribs broke the second time I opened the umbrella on the first day I used it. Totes quality has really gone downhill.

    Size: One SizeColor: Dot Verified Purchase
    This umbrella is great. It's fairly light (the only one lighter of this quality as far as I've experienced it is this same style/brand without the auto open-close), and small enough to fit in a large purse/small tote. It goes with me to work every day, since I walk a lot of my commute. The open/close works great and is handy. It's pretty durable, and although it's occasionally been blown inside out, flips back easily. The pattern is cute, too!
