I have owned one of these for several years and am about to purchase a new one because I misplaced it during a move. Lightweight and small enough to put in a chauffeur bag I have found it easy to open and close and the large canopy is adequate to protect two people. It would be nice to have a different color available so it would be easier to see in a dark environment. I am a professional executive chauffeur and I use this umbrella during the course of my duties during inclement weather.

I have bought three of these umbrellas over the last 8 years. For two of them, the shaft snapped completely in two as a result of a light gust of wind. FYI, when the shaft snaps, the well-oiled spring that powers the auto-open feature slithers out, trailing grease all over your hands and clothes. Definitely not a selling point. And they do not appear to have made any efforts over the ensuing years to reinforce the shaft to address this design flaw. The third one I returned because the ribs failed at the hinges. It is too expensive of a product to require my rigging some kind of homebrew solution to correct flaws like that.

As much as I like the auto-open and auto-close feature, and the oversized dimensions, I will not put myself in the position of relying on a tool that is clearly designed to fail. It isn't worth the risk, because the failures always come to light in a moment when I truly need this tool to work properly.

    Comments about Super Size Umbrella:

    This is a good umbrella and it fullfills perfectly it's main purpose: "Been a compact and at the same time great size umbrella". It can be keep it with you in all times and it fits in many bags of almost any size. Also it is big enough to fit two persons.

    The only thing to be aware of is... because it is designed to be compact and automatic (open and close), it lacks of a strong structure; so when there are medium to strong winds, you can feel that it can be invert or even break, which make you think two times to using it during windy rains. Apart from that detail, I really like it and I think it worth the money that paied for it.

    PD: I have it from at least two and half years.

        Comments about Super Size Umbrella:

        I've bought half a dozen of these from Brookstone over the years. They often reverse and break small parts in heavy winds. It is time to find a better product. We do a lot of international traveling, and it is a pain to wind up without one on a trip.

        Comments about Super Size Umbrella:

        My husband had another large umbrella from Brookstone, which he loved. After 10 years of use, it was wearing out. This one inverts easily in wind, the button is defective and releases on its own, plus it leaks. It has been used for less than 3 weeks. It is garbage. He has never had a worse umbrella in his life. I would love to return it but didn't dream I'd need to do so and didn't keep the receipt.

        Even low gusts blow this thing inside out. I will not be purchasing another despite its ease of opening and closing. Today the handle snapped right off on a gust that was less that 20mph according to weather sources at the time.

        Comments about Super Size Umbrella:

        This umbrella is nice and large when open, yet easily fits into a large purse or shopping bag, so its great for portability. That's where the pros end, though. Four of the pins that hold together the umbrella have broken, though I've managed to fix it with paper clips. The umbrella inverts at the slightest breeze and I have a really hard time closing it. Its not that the close button doesn't work, just that after it collapses, telescoping the umbrella back to its original position is not as easy as it should be. I would never recommend this umbrella to anyone.

          Big enough to almost cover two people, but great for one person, even in heavy rains. Durable, got me through heavy rainstorm in China. But it's heavy, notably heavier than the smaller model.
