I have had the Bigtop umbrella for around a month now and have used it a fair bit. It is the only umbrella I have come across that is large enough to keep you dry (125cm diameter) and yet fit into a briefcase. The material is good quality and the double canopy does seem to work to stop the umbrella blowing inside out in gusts of wind. The only downside is that the handle is quite small, which means that in a strong wind it is hard to hold on to. However, if you want a short umbrella, you can't have a long handle. It seems to be well made, with a clever folding design, though I haven't owned it long enough to judge this. I have now had two colleagues at work sufficiently impressed that they went out and bought the same umbrella.

A while back I bought a Mens "Jumbo" Super Large Folding Umbrella by 'Fulton'. When I reviewed it, I mentioned that I was interested in this model by Tote. Well I was disappointed enough to spend money on this one.

In the past, I've seen most Tote stuff as poor quality, mass market, and frankly not worth even the low cost it tends to retail at,

Well I take it back... I've used this folding umbrella in some serious gusts & driving rain, and it's not left me thinking that was going collapse once!

Here are some comparison points.

1. Size
This opens bigger than the Fulton, but somehow folds slightly shorter. (Go figure!)

2. Build Quality (Canopy)
Very light in weight, but looks shiny and cheap. Not as stylish as the fulton. In fact it's the 'tacky' look that deprives it of full marks.

However, an umbrella that's blown inside-out never looks good, and where the fulton loses all stability in a slight gust, the vents in the 'Big Top' give you a lot more control.

Somehow Totes have built the 'double canopy' into this frame, even though it folds so small.

3. Build Quality (Frame)
Unlike the Fulton, which was hard to fold without delicately twisting and clicking the ribs into position, this umbrella folds just fine.

The fulton had rather flimsey pressed steel ribs, the Tote has more sturdy and yet lighter aluminium ribs.

I noticed that when windy, the spring on the fulton wasn't strong enough to let the 'close' button collapse the canopy. There is no such problem with the Tote. (But thats probably because the vents lower the effect of wind resistance against the spring.

After dozens of cheap umbrellas and experiencing everything from being blown inside-out in a breeze to breaking within an hour of purchase, I've finally bought myself this umbrella, specifically for three reasons:

1. It has a large canopy
2. It features wind-resistant double canopy
3. It is foldable.

I've looked all over Amazon and this is by far the *only* umbrella I've come across that combines all three at a reasonable price (the others being over £50).

And due to our lovely London weather, I had a chance to test this out almost immediately. Here's what I've found:

1. The large canopy

It is HUGE.
I know 123cm doesn't sound that big, but it covers almost *twice* as much area as one that is 96cm (yes, I've done the math: 1.18 square metres vs 0.72 square metres)
It is so huge it almost looks ridiculous for a single person to carry this, but I prefer function over fashion so I don't mind. If you're looking for something dainty and light, this is not your umbrella.

2. The double canopy.

This means the canopy is made of two separate, overlapping canopies joined only at the ribs, and allow the gusts of wind to pass through. It worked reasonably well for me following instructions (i.e. point the umbrella towards the wind, not away from it - common sense really) despite the huge canopy, and held really well.

3. The folding design

I haven't come across many large, double canopy foldable umbrellas, so this is by far the most important feature for me: something that folds small enough to fit in my backpack so I know it's there when I need it. Due to the large size and double canopy, it's not really very compact, but its about as compact as something of this size gets.

I have just spent the last week looking at numerous reviews of umbrellas trying to compare stats with appearance, and wanted to share this for others that find themselves in a similar quandary. Firstly, thanks to the previous reviewer on this site who helpfully details the pros and cons of the Bigtop versus the Fulton Jumbo, two main runners in the battle of mens umbrellas.

There were a few other contenders on my list. The Gustbuster Metro - quite a few other people have written about it's inferior build quality and how it had broken easily. The Fulton Typhoon and Windbreaker - these both seem to me to give a fairly smaller canopy (92cm and 97cm respectively) for a similar price. I had also previously owned a Fulton Magnum and despite its stylish appearance, its apparently strong reinforced shaft only lasted a few months before it buckled and I could no longer open and close it, so I admit I was already quite wary of Fultons.

I bought the Bigtop a few days ago and have just had the perfect rainy and windy day to try it out. It held its own without problem. The canopy is huge, and it could take really strong gusts that I'm sure would have inverted lesser umbrellas. The opening and closing mechanism is powerful and quick. It folds up easily and I was not struggling to get it back in its case. Others have mentioned the handle's short length which maybe a drawback. It measures 6 cm, and is fine for my hands, but I can imagine it being a little annoying if you have large hands or are used to a much longer handle. Just to note, from the pictures of the other umbrellas mentioned above, none look like they have much bigger handles either. The other thing that surprised me was it's weight (500 g), but for such a large umbrella I suppose it is to be expected.
