I like this umbrella and was really looking forward to trying the new "inverted" folding. The umbrella is a little small so if you have anyone else with you, one of you will get wet. It doesn't curve down much so if the wind is blowing, rain blows under it pretty easily. And when you get in your car and fold it up, it's bulky and doesn't really fit anywhere easily. When you put it in the floorboard on the passenger side of the car, all the rain it caught as you were closing it, pours out.
It seemed like a great idea... but I'm not a huge fan.
It does have good points. It's free standing and it's great for sunny days when you need some shade. You can carry it on your wrist freeing up your hands. And it's really pretty. It's just not the umbrella I will be grabbing when it's really raining.
