This umbrella tore within a couple of days use. Where the strap comes around the brolly to hold it in place the strap is not quite long enough and as this was tightened to clip into the press-stud the strap came away from it's stitching resulting in a gaping hole. Unable to return as this was for a gift for my 11 year old daughter and was kept behind until the bad weather so out of standard return time. I had ordered two of these and the other design was out of stock but came just after this incident, really intrepid about using this one in case the same thing happens again. And although we look after our things feel that this one will go the same way as it's not a stitching fault but the fact that the strap is too tight to go around the brolly. This is not a discount umbrella and for the price expected better quality of workmanship from Fulton. (2 stars deducted)
Otherwise I can say that the brolly itself has a nice large dome which can fit a couple of adults under and the design is such that the rain drops onto the floor and not down your lower back. Nice clear plastic for viewing and seeing where you are going. Handle long enough so that you don't bash your head on the inside of the brolly and a nice shaped handle. The plastic material doesn't let any rain in and despite the hole this is still being used in the hope it doesn't get any bigger.
