        Terrible quality! I had previously owned a Sharper Image umbrella that lasted 8 years. Replaced it with this Brookstone model, it broke in 3 months. One of the hinges completely snapped. Ridiculous.

        Comments about Automatic Opening Umbrella:

        I bought this to replace a Brookstone umbrella that I received as a gift. The gift opened and closed with a single push of the button. Very nice feature. The gift worked for 5 or 6 years before one of the ribs broke. The new umbrella seems just as sturdy. It has single button push only for opening, but it is very easy to close with two hands.

          I bought this because of my previous experience with Brookstone umbrellas. I lost mine and needed a new one. My only problem is that the product was unavailable in my local store. So I had to add shipping costs to my purchase. That shouldn't have happened.

            This umbrella was recommended by a colleague. She said that it was expensive but lasted for years. I was fed up with cheap small umbrellas that lasted one or two business trips and then inverted and were ruined. I am very pleased with the quality of this umbrella.

              Comments about Automatic Opening Umbrella:

              This is honestly the most amazing umbrella ever, and completely worth the cost. I've recommended it to several friends and my sister, and never forget it anywhere because I like it so much. It's sleek and compact enough to fit in your purse for every day use, yet it is extremely sturdy. It very, very rarely turns inside out, and when it does, it simply snaps back into place. I use it all the time when I'm walking around the city, and it goes with every outfit. I've had it for close to a year now, and it's actually saved me money in the long run, as I no longer buy less expensive umbrellas that break after a few uses.
