Good umbrella with one annoying feature,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good umbrella. Haven't had it open in high winds yet so I don't know how sturdy it is, but it seems well made. The only annoying feature of the umbrella is that is hard to open without using the automatic open feature. Basically it's hard to open from the extended pole-closed umbrella position, so you have to close the pole part as well. It's only annoying and not really a problem. It may also loosen up as it gets used more.

Every auto-open umbrella I've seen works in the same way. When you collapse the pole, you are also resetting the mechanism (spring?) that enables auto open. Where else is the energy going to come from?
