I've bought this umbrella 2 years ago and used it exactly 3 times until a gust of wind flipped it inside out and snapped a rib mechanism like a twig. My GF was walking right next to me with her own run of the mill umbrella and never had a problem with hers, so we're not talking hurricane force winds here.
Apparently, the newer EuroSchrm umbrellas are even worse, as taken from a review site :
"In recent months, however, the company apparently changed the design to include a wrist strap. That would be a good thing, except a slew of negative user reviews and reader comments alerted us to what seems like an accompanying drop-off in build quality or quality control. We’ve seen consistent reports and pictures indicating that the shaft-extension mechanism falls apart too easily. Users and readers also report that the company’s customer service has been slow to process warranty requests. We have been unable to reach EuroSCHIRM for comment, so we can no longer continue to recommend the Light Trek.
I wish it came with a cord or handle on the actual umbrella and not just the case though. I often want to Velcro my umbrella closed and hang it from my wrist if I am going to use again soon (like going in/out of stores). However, the case is so snug, that you have to carefully close the umbrella and fold the pleats so it will fit. As a side note, my case also came ripped but I needed it before I could return for another. One other thing to note: it's very difficult, if possible at all, to re-open the umbrella without pushing it closed towards the handle and using the open/close button. Not a major flaw or inconvenience but something I noticed the first time using on my commute.
