I bought this umbrella a over a year ago and used it just a few times (it was stored in the back of my car.) During the few prior uses, I did notice that the supports of the umbrella seemed weak and to not hold well against mild winds . it did flip inside out a few times under those conditions. Last night during a fairly windy rainstorm not only did it flip, but the umbrella, closed by itself while I was under it and then later completely buckled . The supports that run into the top hub slipped out through the top fabric piece of the umbrella. I thought that I could just slip those pieces back into the hub and repair this flimsy umbrella, but it is not repairable. Upon closer inspection, the supports are held together at the hub by thin gauge wire, that had snapped and very cheap and very weak thread that breaks and pulls apart easily. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk. I bought a better and comparably sized umbrella for a little over 7.00 at AC Moore with a coupon. I just feel guilty for sending it to a landfill after such little use.
