I got this umbrella because it's portable. I like it because it weighs just slightly over 14 oz. I don't like lugging around extra weight with me. I have enough to carry as it is.
It has auto open and close. That makes it very simple and fast to use.
It also has a Teflon and UV coating. The Teflon makes it easy to shake off the water.
The UV makes it also good for keeping cool in the hot weather.
It comes with a zippered sleeve.
The Eiffel Tower print is really cute. I went with Basic Black. I wouldn't mind having the pretty feminine one also.
I'm replacing my old umbrella because it started showing signs of wear. It doesn't have those extra features either
The material feels alot sturdier for handling on windy days too and feels long lasting.
It's still quite lightweight and compact so it's easy to carry which was my main criteria for my new umbella. I really like the extras though.
