Wow, this umbrella is incredible - let alone the premium feel of using in public and the legitimate looks I get from it but it is a sturdy, stylish and well-made umbrella. The auto open and close feels great with the strong spring and takes most of the rain off when closing. The fabric is the highest quality I have ever felt on a compact umbrella, quite literally repelling water from the moment it hits.
Another pleasant surprise was the size of it. Small enough to fit in the side of my door but well and truly big enough to fit my self and a backpack underneath it - couldn't recommend it anymore! Stop waiting and buy it!!
