5.0 out of 5 stars Smallish and dependable 18 Aug 2011
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Appearance:

The Ambassador looks rather unremarkable. From a distance it could be mistaken for just about any black fold up umbrella. In my view, this is a good thing, since it's far less likely to get stolen than a more striking model. Up close, however, and it's easy to see that the Ambassador is sturdier than your average umbrella.

Build:

I live in Aberdeen and the wind has sent countless umbrellas to umbrella heaven, turning them inside out, ripping their fabric, and bending their tines. The Ambassador HAS been turned inside out a couple of times, but a quick shake has returned it to its regular shape.

The umbrella is small enough to easily fit in my backpack, though it is probably slightly too long to fit in most handbags.

The crook handle makes it easy to hang up and hold, while the automatic spring mechanism is snappy and solid. Folding up the telescoping frame is smooth and easy.

Rain protection:

Good. The span of the umbrella is a bit larger than than many fold ups I've own and it does a good job of shielding me.

Overall:

A great wee umbrella that, while more expensive than many similar umbrellas, justifies its price with quality and reliability. Its unassuming appearance and convenient form factor add to its appeal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 13 Oct 2011
This is a fantastic umbrella.

I have had so many umbrellas over the years and every single one of them seemed to break at the slightest gust of wind. This one has survived far worse and come out on top! The canvas is larger than a typical umbrella and does a good job of keeping me dry on the walk to work. It is just about large enough that two people can get under it and not have water dripping on them.

With all its strength one thing I was slightly worried about before I purchased it was that it would be rather heavy. I needn't have worried! It folds down to a small size (around 40cm long) and is not that much heavier than a regular 'cheap' folding umbrella. It certainly has never bothered me when carrying it. Another good note is that when folded down it is just about small enough to fit in most bags, although probably with the handle poking out - handy for when the rain stops!

So far it hasn't turned inside out and I have been in some fairly heavy wind. It drys out very quickly.

It has a little button which extend the umbrella automatically when pressed but it does rather shoot out so be careful where you aim it when pressing!

Overall I would definitely recommend this umbrella. It is worth spending a little more to get an umbrella that lasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Umbrella; Heartily Recommend 21 Jan 2013
By Toby
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:One size|Verified Purchase
This umbrella is very well-made: it can withstand high winds, the fabric is tough and tear-resistant, the metal seems like good quality steel. The plastic handle is comfortable to hold and useful for hanging up. Hook handles definitely preferable to straight ones I think. It's also plenty wide enough to shelter someone else under, particularly useful for beguiling damp ladies.

It's also good value for money, as my experience with Fulton umbrellas (this is my third) is that they last for years and years (I've got a Fulton golf umbrella that must be 7 years old and still works fine). Though they might be more expensive than a more basic unbranded one for a couple of pounds, if you buy the latter you end up buying one every couple of weeks as they break so readily, so this works out as much more in the long run.

Only thing to bear in mind is that it's quite long when folded-up (about a foot) so not the type of micro-umbrella you could fit in a coat pocket or handbag. But otherwise it's pretty light and narrow; fits easily in a rucksack or similar bag. If I don't have a bag and it's folded up I tend to hang it off a belt loop like a revolver. This makes me feel like a cowboy, and that's something everybody needs in their life. Actually it's also worth noting that the button to open it has a pretty ballistic flavour: the sturdy mechanism produces a satisfying whoosh and recoil on firing, and collapsing it feels not unlike loading a pump-action shotgun. Anyway, so my original point in bringing up my whole 'wish I was a cowboy but actually I just own an umbrella' fantasy was that despite being a bit big, the umbrella is still portable, and ultimately I think an umbrella that's tough is going to have to be slightly bigger than a more basic model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fulton Umbrella 17 Sep 2011
By WayneR
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:One size|Verified Purchase
I'm very happy with this umbrella.
I've been out in the rain and wind and I must say, other people's umbrellas were turning inside-out from the wind but this one stayed as it should.
It also dries out very quickly.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good umbrella 9 July 2012
I'm not exactly an umbrella man, and I usually prefer to wear a rain coat or anything else that protects me (more or less) from getting soaking wet. A few weeks ago I had to go to a classy event and I couldn't show up looking like a student backpacking through Europe. As it was likely to rain that day, I bought this Ambassador umbrella. It's a big, sturdy umbrella and it kept me dry all the way to the venue. And I must say, it did make me feel a bit more upper class :)
