I purchased this umbrella in the “Peacock Ling” pattern in January 2019. I was instantly in love with it. It worked wonderfully! The c-handle was awesome, the pattern beautiful, and the double-walled umbrella was great for ventilation. The inversion was a great benefit. A few weeks ago, I used it during a heat wave and as I went to open, it simply fell apart. Some black plastic piece on the arm had broken so the entire thing slid apart and collapsed. It ended up in a pile of broken pieces, even though the canopy was intact. It was a total bummer!
