Rated 1 out of 5 by rizz 1 Did not work for me.
Returned this umbrella. Description not correct. You push button on handle and umbrella opens automatically but to close you have to push button and push down handle at the same. You have to close umbrella before you go into a store, restaurant. So you have to close it while still outside which means in the rain. I have had other umbrellas by them and to close all you did was push on button in handle. When you got inside you then pushed down the handle. This one was returned. I did purchase another umbrella from this company and am presently waiting for it to be delivered.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gal from Texas 2nd Leighton Automatic Umbrella
I purchased this particular umbrella because it was compact (short). I like the automatic feature. Purchased in red. The handle is heavier that I expected, but I did not account for the fact that the handle holds the automatic mechanism. I have another leopard Leighton that I brought to Ireland in August and used it a lot this summer!!! Love the automatic open and close feature. It was a big longer, but still managable on the trip.

My favorite umbrellas have been Leightons, and a couple have gone missing over the years. So, I was thrilled to see such a large collection on QVC, and I ordered four!
They are all good, but for travel and compact carrying, this is my favorite. The auto open is
nice, but when you're getting into a bus or car, it also does a swift auto close. The rubberized handle is ribbed, and feels good in the hand. It also has a sturdy loop to slip
over your hand when it's not in use. The paisley spoke to my color loves, but I see others
that are equally beautiful. The stick umbrella, shown below is my favorite for a quick trip out with the dog, or to check the mailbox.
