After my last fold up umbrella fell to pieces, I decided it would be worth investing a little more money in a better made one. I already had a Fulton Golf Umbrella that has given me sterling service over several years, so a Fulton was top of my list. This mens auto umbrella is very well made, has a much wider canopy than most, giving that extra bit of protection from the rain. To allow for the bigger canopy, they have fitted more metal struts than usual, giving it increased strength and rigidity. The handle is comfortable, and the whole thing is easy to erect and fold up again. It takes up no more space than a smaller fold up umbrella, but that extra size when open is well worth the extra expense. OK, so there are cheaper ones on the market, but I'm glad I invested in this one. Like everything in life, you get what you pay for.
Well made, robust and certainly worth the slightly higher price than a smaller cheap one. Highly recommended.
