I live in Portland Oregon and it rains here constantly, pretty much nine months a year of rain. So obviously I always need umbrellas. I go through three or four umbrellas a year, either I lose them or they break. I had an umbrella last year that just literally snapped in half! Not only do we have rain here but we also have wind. So to find a solid, dependable umbrella is huge for me. This is a good looking umbrella, not cheaply made like some I've had. It is a lot bigger than the other compact umbrellas I've had. It is small enough to carry in my purse but it covers me entirely from getting wet. And it has a really solid handle. The wind shouldn't snap this one. 5 stars.
