I have a lot of friends that love this umbrella. I am not a fan. First I do like that the 'C' handle will hook on my shopping cart. I also like the underside is colorful. It's cheery on a dismal day. However it is to small. If you are a plus size person, you WILL get wet. The release button is slow. Takes some effort to open& pop up. The reverse is also true. Takes two hands to release and pull down, so if trying to get in car while raining, you get wet. The 'C' handle is comfortable, but does not "stay on your wrist to leave both hands free". If you are a thin and a passenger in a car, this umbrella would work for you.
