I think this umbrella is overall ok, have not been highly impressed. The reason for the 3 star review is because: 1) I am used to a golf umbrella so it's a lot smaller than I thought it would be. If I am carrying extra bags in/out of my work place not all of my bags stay dry, because the circumference of the umbrella is just not big enough for my use. 2) I don't feel that the umbrella is high quality either, we will see how long it really lasts. The only thing I really like about it is the obvious and that's b/c it turns inside and out and you don't get wet when shutting it while sitting in your car. I still have my golf umbrella and continue to use it when needed.
