Edited a few months later: Okay so I tested it out during the big wind storms. As I suspected, there was not even a wriggle from it and not even a hint of it turning inside out. Fabulous!
I cannot see how this umbrella can be sold when it takes such an effort to open it up, and clearly just one use by someone who didn't know the pitfalls has rendered it useless. I'm very disappointed and consider it a complete waste of money.
This one is advertised it as wind proof which is what first attracted me to it. I've been out in high winds with it once and it seemed to stand up to the test, but I was only walking from the bus stop to my house which isn't any great distance - so whether it would hold up under a more lengthy battering, I'm not sure. The wind can't get underneath it to blow it inside out because of the design, but you need to hold it low enough over your head to make sure it doesn't, because if it did and this umbrella got blown inside out, it would break - you wouldn't be able to fight it back into shape like you can with the 'flatter' shaped ones.
It's certainly very well made; it feels good and sturdy and I like the shape. It covers your head and shoulders, which means the rain runs off it and on to the ground, not down your back, thus soaking the back of your knees and ankles. It does steam up a little on the inside which can make it harder to see through, but not so much so that you're walking blind.
Overall, I need to give it another try in the wild welsh weather before I can say I'm completely happy with it, but so far - it's good!
I thought I would write an update for this product as mine has developed a hole - after only buying it in January and using it intermittently, i.e. two out of every seven days at the most. This would denote to me that this product is not such great value for money and I won't be buying another one. Amazon - with all their money - could let me return it for a replacement, but they won't!
