Man oh man this 68” is just the right size for me. I can’t believe I haven’t found one like this up until now. In the video I posted you can see how the slits in the umbrella allow the passage of air,not water, to go through so when it is windy the umbrella doesn’t become a parachute and drags me.
The handle is a soft rubber which is comfortable to hold.
I almost forgot the best feature is actually one that is lacking something than including it. What I’m hinting to is the annoying piece of metal most umbrellas have that needs to be pushed in to close it. Omg the amount of times I’ve pinched my finger trying to close those locks. Oh man, thank G-d this umbrella doesn’t have that stupid metal lock and it closes based on pressure by pushing down.
Also, there is a nice solid click to know when it has locked in place for storage. The button to open the umbrella is equally enjoyable to press.
Lastly, the umbrella is relatively lightweight for the size and amount of material that it is constructed out of. Two thumbs up from me:)
