When I first received this umbrella I thought it was great. The case is well made, it has a thick lining that absorbs the water. However the umbrella itself is not as sturdy as I'd hoped. I've only used it a handful of times, and it doesn't close properly anymore. In addition to this during strong winds it has collapsed. For its cost it would be ideal for this umbrella to be far more sturdy.
This product has a simple design and the included case is fantastic. However, it turns inside when met with medium strength wind gusts. Its strength is equivalent to a 10 dollar Coles umbrella. I am very disappointed with this level of strength hence my star rating.
