This is a great umbrella. My wife bought one months ago and I ordered this one for myself. The best feature is the way the umbrella opens. Ever try to get in your car in the middle of a rainstorm with a regular umbrella? Forget about that! The second you close it the water that was on the outside of the umbrella is all over you and everything in your vehicle! NOT so with this umbrella. Because it has an inverted opening, when you close it all the water is on the inside of the umbrella, which means dry clothes and dry interior of your vehicle. Switch out your old outdated umbrella for this one. You won't regret it!
