It opens and closes automatically.
I did not test it in heavy winds, I will add more when I do.
I had one before not exactly the same but it held good when I had it facing strong winds
Sprayed water on umbrella using hose and no water is permeated. I believe teflon should be coated on the inside versus outside for the protective travel sleeve. In the test, ran water over the protective travel sleeve, water beads off without any issue, content inside is dry. Protective travel sleeve is turned inside out, and same test was repeated and content got wet.
Look, if you've had a cheap umbrella, that's what this is. It's relative small (so arguably easy to pack) but also difficult to remain protected underneath. Every other aspect of the umbrella is unremarkable, which is ideal in a water avoidance device, I'm not really looking to reinvent anything.
Where this item falls down is its instant ability and propensity to flip inside out whenever the wind blows. Even a light breeze sends this thing inverted, and you get to spend more time attempting to pop it back into shape whilst also being rained on.
Turns out he is very happy with this umbrella - and so am I because I don't have to hear complaints!
He finds it sturdy and well made. "Very smooth mechanism!" - his very own words. Whatever he means by that.
He specifically likes the fact it repels the water and it is pretty much dry after he uses it, so he can just give it a little shake and put it back in his bag. No more forgetting wet umbrellas in wet buckets by the door (yes, he is forgetful, too)!
I assume that if you are reading umbrellas reviews before buying one online, you are definitely considering and thinking about all the potencial issues it may have before making a decision (yeah, I did that, too). So, if you read my review and could relate in some level (husbands or wives out there), get this one. This is it.
The umbrella's best features are its automatic open-close mechanism and its handle. The auto open-close is very quiet and smooth. The handle is comfortable, textured for easy gripping, and has only smooth edges. There is no sharp edge at the top of the handle that I find on many compact umbrellas. The button to control the open-close is big but cannot easily be triggered by accident.
The one difficulty I find with the Repel umbrella is that it takes some force to push the shaft into the handle to fully collapse the umbrella. The ribs close with the touch of a button. Then you need to place the palm of your hand on the top of the umbrella and push it into the shaft with your other hand on the handle. The instructions say this, but it is really the only way to close the umbrella. You can't pull the shaft down into the handle; you have to push it from the top.
The umbrella weights 14.2 ounces by my scale, which is on the heavy side for a compact umbrella. But I like the quality of the handle and the entire umbrella feels sturdy, so I'm not complaining. It comes with a matching nylon pouch or cover that is, as expected, a little difficult to get the umbrella back into. The trick is to twist in the direction that the umbrella folds while pulling the cover down over it. Still a nuisance to do while out and about, so I don't use the cover. Repel umbrellas have a lifetime guarantee, which is impressive for an automatic umbrella. I expect this umbrella to last a long time; it is a quality product, both in appearance and in actual operation.
The grip is solid, and opening and closing the umbrella with the press of a button is a breeze.. The umbrella still needs to be pushed closed from the top, however it still feels effortless, and utilizing this umbrella is quite pleasant!
I've stated this before, how I've recently come across Upper Echelon Products, and any company that stands by their products as they do come highly recommended!
Recently, one of the umbrellas from 2 purchased had a mishap, however, it was only the patch that attaches to the velcro came undone.
Please note that this is a year and many months later, after countless uses in rainy and stormy weather.
When I let Upper Echelon Products know of this, their customer support representative instantly came through for both my Mother who is the happy owner and I, and a new one is on the way..
I am speechless, and thoroughly impressed and grateful.
Other companies need to take notes from them on how to treat their customers, and honor warranties.
Amazing product from an amazing company!
