First, it is important to note that in-person, the color is more of a pewter than silver metallic color, which for me was a plus. I like the metallic sheen without too much shine, but if you're looking for a bright silver color, this is not your umbrella. The silver leather handle is a nice touch, but it's quality is in contrast with the rest of the umbrella. The umbrella is for light-weight use. The frame feels very light, weak, and cheap. It easily flipped the canopy back in moderate wind. Also, in contrast to most umbrellas that have a strap and button or velcro near the handle to keep the collapsed panels from flapping around when closed, this one has the strap near the top, which only partially secures the panels. Somewhat useless and just kind of strange. Looks good, but price too high for the low quality. Same quality at discount department stores for less, they just don't look as good as this one. Whether this is a good value depends on what your priority is...quality or looks.
