totes Signature Auto Open/Close Micro 'brella Umbrella
The unbrella was just as advertised, with the great features I wanted.
This matched my unbrella and is easier for my wife to handle because of the features. I recomment it.

The product broke the very first time I used it!
I bought this produce online and it was really good looking and priced just right. Problem was it broke the very first time I used it. Yes it has a lifetime warranty but now I have to go through all the trouble of sending it back when I shop online for the convience in the first place.

USUALLY HATE UMBRELLAS, BUT...
I hate using umbrellas. Walking around Manhattan on a rainy day w/an umbrella just slows you down. Secondly, and more importantly, every time I get an umbrella that I actually like to use, I lose it.
My wife and I were heading to France to visit her family. She told me it would be rainy at the time of year we were going, so I went in search of an umbrella. This looked perfect as it promised room enough for 2, yet was very compact when closed. It fit very nicely in my carry-on luggage. Sure enough, when we got to Paris, it was raining. We had just got off the train from Marseille, still kinda jet-lagged and really hungry. Our hotel didn't offer any room service in the evenings, so I grabbed the umbrella and we went out.
I was really very pleasantly surprised at the coverage the umbrella afforded us, keeping us nice and dry. It's a drag to have to get wet when you're already tired and hungry. The auto close is AWESOME! Never had an umbrella with that before and I have to say it's very cool. Additionally, the mesh cover has two elastic loops that allow you to slip in on like you would a backpack, allowing you to carry the umbrella hands-free when not in use. More coolness.
Of course, I ended up losing it when I got back to NY. But I liked it so much that I'm ordering another one today. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I purchased this umbrella a few months ago and use it rarely. It is stored in my briefcase. One of the spokes has already broken and it is very difficult to close the umbrella. I can't even do it with two hands and often has to use a wall to push it closed. I previously had an umbrella that I also kept in my briefcase, that has not broken in years and years, yet this one has after a few months and a handful of uses.
