1.0 out of 5 stars Junk
I bought this umbrella 2 months ago and have used it approximately 6 times; now its broken. Similar to someone else, the rivet that keeps the umbrella open broke off so basically it's knackered. The handle also feels floppy due to its gel construction and because of this, in the wind, I didn't feel I had full control. Apart from these 2 major set backs everything else...

1.0 out of 5 stars Fulton,
1.0 out of 5 stars First time of use,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)I bought my Titan just after Christmas, to be used when I play golf. As we have had a great summer I have not had to use the titan, until today. It was not blowing that hard, but as other people have mentioned the top canopy struts broke and the umbrella kept on closing when the top stop clip did not hold the umbrella open. Was trying to avoid buying a branded golf umbrella but it looks like that's what I have to do. Very wet and angry
3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Unlucky,
Moreover, the only main difference noticeable between the Titan and the Stormshield is the stick handle, which is very soft and nice for the Titan.
1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed twice,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)I have owned a Fulton for many years and been pleased with it. I ordered a new one from Amazon after losing it and have been very disappointed: The first umbrella I received had the material not connected to a spoke. Amazon replaced this easily. However, with the next umbrella, the handle snapped on first use. This occurred 31 days after purchasing it, so just out the the 30 day guarantee! Also the negative comments in the other reviews are also valid from my experience - the umbrella springs closed randomly (expect this to happen at several times whilst using it), which can give a bit of a shock and sprays water around; the umbrella does not fold away easily with the velcro ties badly positioned, so it looks messy without the sleeve
1.0 out of 5 stars Big shame.,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)Went on an umbrella shopping spree on Amazon, and this 78mph wind tunnel-tested beauty seemed to appear as the Rolls Royce of brollies. I packaged it and the others and brought them back to Moscow, where I live and work.
Day One::: light rain. No prob, let's test the Titan. The umbrella kept collapsing on my head, x3 in 2 minutes. Then when I extended it normally so the clip would 'click' for usage -- the umbrella refused to collapse. I tried and tried and tried to collapse it, but to no avail.
My new sexy (and rather heavy) Titan lasted less than 2 mins on a windless day of drizzle and I ended up tossing it in the nearest bin.
I was and still am very disappointed by this...
Don't Buy It.
1.0 out of 5 stars No use in wind.,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)I bought this umbrella for my husband for a Christmas present. He has used it on around 20 occasions. Just as mentioned by other reviewers, the clip/button that holds the canopy up springs out from time to time so that the brolly collapses. Then today, the first time he has used it during some wind (though not particularly strong certainly not 78 mph) two of the spines that support the top flaps snapped. He is going to try to fix it. I agree with other reviewers - not what you expect from, what is portrayed on Fulton's website as, a quality product
1.0 out of 5 stars Titan(ic),
It now inevitably collapses at some point whenever I use it; the locking mechanism just doesn't work properly. It does mean that it adds to the suspense of walking through rain though; you never know when the 'crack' of the mechanism is going to happen and the thing will enfold your head.
Reading the other reviews this sounds like an endemic problem with this umbrella and not just a one off on mine.
Can't anyone make luxury products that last more than 12 months any more?
1.0 out of 5 stars Woefully Inadequate,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)My Fulton Titan umbrella was around 18 months old when the shaft broke just above the clip as I was opening it in a light wind. So what is one to infer about "... the strongest umbrella Fulton has ever made" as it says on their website? Hmmmmm, perhaps they could have tried harder. Perhaps avoiding the whole range would be a wise precaution, if you want to stay dry, because if that's what happens to their strongest model then ...
I was drawn to the Titan by the proud boast, again from the company, "Wind tunnel tested to 78mph". Sounds impressive, robust, durable. A claim of confidence and belief in their product? Alas no it seems, as "...damages caused by wind are not covered by our manufacture warranty." as I was told in a very tardy response from the customer care department. I was hoping for too much, obviously.
I cannot therefore, in any form or even to a limited extent recommend this umbrella, but must advocate its avoidance. Needless to say I shall not be buying another Fulton product.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)Locking button failure from first use. Otherwise seemed robust. Never able to test in high wind since would not stay open in dead calm. Nul points!
1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't waste your money,
This review is from: Fulton Titan Umbrella (Apparel)First umbrella leaked, and my replacement umbrella has just turned inside out and subsequently snapped one of the arms in the top canopy. Considering the cost, and design claims I was expecting this umbrella to have performed much better. Very disappointed, and would not recommend
