I always have to buy new umbrellas because the weather always breaks them down. I finally decided to invest in a more durable one, and am glad I did. It seems very quality, and I expect it to last a long time. I live in Oregon, where is rains all the time, and it shall be put to good use. The color is a bright, cherry red, and will be sure to stand out amongst the crowds.
Great umbrella but I didn't read the description carefully enough, this thing is HUGE. Perhaps that's my[.....] talking where we don't buy anything big, but this is more like a golf umbrella...even comes with its own shoulder strap carrying case.
