I would have given it a 4 or 5 star but....

Comments about Windproof Umbrella:
I would have given it a 4 or maybe a 5 star rating for its style and function. It did what ad claims...held up well in winds and heavy rain and looks beautiful (stylish ) too (which was not a concern for me but was a plus for being able to use it when dressed up too). However i only got to use it 4 times and it fell apart and is irreparable on the inside parts that hold up the umbrella when you open it up , So after less use than any very cheap or any other umbrella i ever had, it was no longer useable. i live in Pacific NW where it rains all the time and windy at times too, so i use umbrellas al lot and never had this happen in over 25 years here even with very old ones. So i examined it closely to try to fix it and saw that these very delicate thin long pins that go all around the pole had just fallen out (what holds the umbrella open) and something that covers the spring fell off too. This happened just from dropping it and i never found one of the parts that goes w/ spring. $12+ was too much to pay for something that lasted a few times only. I couldn't get a replacement because it didn't happen before the warranty ran out...and that is because purchased another umbrella (different style) i used more and only this one on occasion when super windy as that was what it was designed for and so the need for it was minimal. If i never dropped it i would not know that it would even have fallen apart so easily. So if you buy this one....try dropping it within the warranty time frame ...smile..or don't expect anything if it falls apart. Otherwise it works well and i really loved it. It is big and doesn't fold up to take in car or on a walk if not using it ...is why i used other one most of the time. I just purchased at my own expense a replacement one and hope it holds up and will be happy if it does (and i won't try dropping it , since knowing what COULD HAPPEN i am just going to be extra careful and hope it lasts until and unless i find. one for less/same cost)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It will replace an umbrella that broke after 3 uses.

My umbrella turned inside out during a gust leaving me to walk to a fancy lunch arriving soaking wet. I bought this umbrella. The day it arrived I had the opportunity to use it in a very stiff wind and pouring rain. It is just as advertised. I love it and will get another one to keep in the car. It rains here in New Orleans, it rains a lot.
