My old umbrella was cheap and nearly broke last week so I've ordered this one because I wanted something new and modern. It expands and autocloses rather quickly which is impressive. I really appreciate that the handle is "wide" enough and comfortable to hold all the time. I would highly recommend this umbrella due to quality and design ratio. It performs a reliable operation when facing a strong wind. It can be very windproof, waterproof, instantaneous drying, suitable for my backpack. I am very satisfied with my purchase, mostly because it is sturdy, which is the most important quality for umbrellas.
