The umbrella in its folded up state looks a lot bigger than the pictures let on even though when you open it, it only would fit one person. This makes it more difficult to carry around than some mini umbrellas. It won't fit in a purse or backpack. Additionally, the C is pretty big, so it's hard to hold the umbrella up with just your wrist. It would fall over unless you have a gigantic wrist. The picture kind of makes it looks like it'll just fit on your wrist and stay up, but that's not the case in my experience.
