I love this reverse folding umbrella. It stays dry on the underneath side, easy to open, and you can lay it down after coming in from the rain and not get anything wet. I've tried other similar umbrellas but they were too heavy. I don't know how it will hold up on a windy day though. I wish they had more bright colors on the outside of the umbrella. Seems like manufacturers put the color on the inside, but I prefer to be visible in the rain.
