I was so looking forward to receiving this umbrella as we have an entire week of rain predicted but this is by far one of the WORST umbrellas I have ever owned. First it is NOT an automatic. You push the button and it opens just a little and you have to push it to fully open it. Second it is inverted as to keep you and your car from getting wet but it poured water out of the end that was suppose to hold the water in getting me and my car soaked. I will be shopping around in hopes of finding a better quality intervertebral umbrella but buyer beware do not buy this one.
