Black & Ivory model is NOT WATERPROOF,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Totes Signature SuperDome Auto Open/Close Umbrella (Apparel)
You read that correctly. This umbrella is not waterproof! I bought the black + ivory one and while the ivory-colored fabric seems ok, the water oozes right through the black sections and drips on me!
The automatic open AND close is the reason I bought it, and the size is great, but the above defect is unforgivable. The umbrella's only job is to be waterproof and it failed.
Also, the handle is a bit short. Only three fingers can wrap around it, making it uncomfortable on the fingers and writs to carry for more than 5-10 minutes. This applies to all styles. I'm guessing that only some will have the first issue I had, depending on the fabric used.

I am having this exact same problem! seems counter intuitive. shouldn't an umbrella by design not let water through? unfortunately i can't return to amazon but you can bet you wallet i'm returning this piece of crap right back to totes.

Same here but I returned to Amazon. Maybe we had different sellers.
