It is odd shaped for the more conservative, but it is like that for a reason, has I had the chance to find out in the recent gale force winds that swept trough Wales.
It does work, the aerodynamic shape helps you "cut" trough the wind and still protect you from the rain. It bends and flexes but does not break. And if you get "caught out" with wind from behind it's genius design doesn't let it bend backwards like all other umbrellas do.
Build quality is there, no slacks or noises, the umbrella feels very sturdy, so much in fact, I believe it could be used for self defence.
In conclusion, it is a high quality product, well designed and built, if you need an umbrella frequently this is the choice.
Originally I was dubious about the claims that the umbrella could handle winds up to 70mph, but it has no trouble handling the storm force winds we get here in Wales especially recently.
So if you need an umbrella and live in stormy parts of the world I highly recommend this umbrella, you won't regret it and it'll last for a lifetime.
I subjected it to some extremely high winds (for England) last week and there was more chance of it being ripped out of my hands than it folding up (which is why they provide an elastic hand-strap I suppose!).
If you're trying to get two people under it it's not really big enough, this may be the XL version, but unless you've actually got your arm around the other person's shoulders then it's not gonna cut it.
1) Not for couples, or those with a great affinity for pies. Even though this is the XL version it's comfortably big enough for one person, no more.
2) Unlike every other umbrella in the world, the uneven design means it needs two little tabs with velcro in order to tie it up.
3) Strange shaft design, you pull the handle towards the end of the shaft to get it to open. This means when it's closed there's no comfortable place to hold the umbrella.
But... it's super strong, it's kept me dry in very high winds. So despite the compromises, it's worth it.
This umbrella is awesome, I work close to a coast and the winds often pick up a lot around there. I have before gone through two normal umbrellas on the way to work due to the wind but this umbrella has held up perfectly. I would definitely recommend buying one. The only thing I would say is buy one size bigger than you think you need. You could get two people under an XL size but anything smaller and you would seriously struggle.
