totes Stormbeater Rainbow Automatic Double Vented Folding Umbrella
Plastic handle failed
We purchased this umbrella while on vacation. Choose it for size and wind management. Initially we were pleased with the choice. However, the inner mechanism in the plastic handle quickly broke. Now the umbrella will not remain closed. Everything about this umbrella seems like a quality piece--except for the actual mechanism that makes it function. Why did Totes use a cheap piece of plastic for the internal latch/release button? We are disappointed!

Nice sturdy umbrella
I bought 3 of these. One for me and two as gifts. They have nice coverage and seem to hold up pretty well. Classy colors. The only negative about this umbrella is it is a bit heavy. Probably not a big deal for a man, though. I traded comfort for performance on this.

I walk in the woods & fields all year no matter the weather. I have wanted a vented(wind ruined others), bright(to be visible to hunters, etc.) large umbrella and this fits the needs.

Very heavy to carry
I like the design of this umbrella but would have preferred an umbrella lighter in weight. This one will be cumbersome to carry around and will, therefore, only be used in a heavy rainstorm. I paid for shipping to get it or I would return it.
