So, I'm 33 and the fact that someone thought to redesign the classic umbrella to be more functional blew my mind. And I will say that the way this one looks when it's rolled up still seems odd to me, but my god, it's so functional! I live in Ohio, where spring is just a constant barrage of cold rain and wind. This umbrella is incredibly helpful for dealing with these conditions and I am so happy that I decided to buy it. It opens and closes easily, it's lightweight, and the design on the inside makes me hate everything just a little bit less. I paid $10 more for an umbrella that was rated well on Amazon that takes both hands and all my strength to close, so this one definitely wins.
