Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy33 Nifty w/ flashlight- Fits in all bags, lightweight
I got the pink-grey plaid. The flashlight works gr8 - quite bright - angular handle that rotates or moves - pretty nifty - and pops open at the press of a button.
Haven't used it in a heavy downpour as of yet - so cant comment on the wind proof part.
Convenience and style in 1 umbrella.
Well done !
Rated 5 out of 5 by Edmonds Viola Girl Great Little Umbrella
Whenever I travel, I carry a very lightweight, small umbrella that fits in my purse. This umbrella will never go on a trip with me because the handle makes it too heavy. That said, I am happy to have this one for my car, and since I live in the Seattle area (yeah, you know it rains here a lot), it will get plenty of use. Love the black floral.
Others have said something about mechanical difficulties, so I am hoping this will hold up for me because it was a costly umbrella.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rater121048 Great Quality
Still 90/100s in Phoenix. Hasn't rained since I got it. Otherwise, I would probably give it 5 stars. The quality is great...so much more attractive in person. Also, it is large which should keep me dry. I go to the San Francisco area about four times a year so it will be good there...and it collapses down to a very convenient size to bring on the plane...not heavy at all. If you need an umbrella, this is a good one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sevenatesix It works
I have a long history of getting my fingers pinched or otherwise injured when opening or closing umbrellas. I've tried many different kinds. I was able to put this one to use the day I received it. It works the way I'd hoped it would. When opening, it simultaneously extends away from you and fully opens. When closing, it contracts easily, and away from your fingers. I picked the black and white floral pattern.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CaitoJ Tashon umbrella
This umbrella structure is very flimsy. I opened another umbrella that I have to compare the ribs and the Tashon ribs are very thin and lacking strength. It is not worth the price. I immediately returned the two of these that I bought.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dkay Not sure
I am unsure if I will keep this umbrella. The "down" button was extremely hard to push for the umbrella to fold down. It took several tries, pushing down with both thumbs. Love the plaid material though.
