When I first got the umbrella I opened it up and saw it was not the pattern I had ordered. I really needed an umbrella, and it seemed sturdy, so I kept it. A few days later I was at a drive thru and it started raining. I was glad I kept the umbrella and started to open it up. It broke. I almost dropped the top of the umbrella because the stick with the handle and the spring that allows it to open came off, and I got all wet. I don't know if maybe I just got a defective one or not. I give this 2 stars only because of the seller and their fast response time. They immediately gave me a refund with no hassle. Its a good seller with a defective product, at least mine was.
