Never thought I'd say this, but I am in love with my umbrella! I was hugely skeptical of this product, as I live in an urban costal region that gets pretty windy during storms, and I have had my fair share of umbrellas blowing inside out or breaking. This umbrella works! It's a larger size which is nice, the color (blue) is great, and overall it's a fabulous item. We ordered two more for family members. My only wish was that the handle collapsed so it could be carried in a bag easier. The handle does not collapse, but the curved handle makes it easy to hold onto regardless. Kudos to the design team of this product. Well done!
