I live in Florida and although it is called the Sunshine State, people who live here will tell you different. We have a 3 month rainy season ans it rains pretty much every day. Maybe for only 5 minutes and maybe in the front yard and not the back but it rains never the less. We carry umbrella's with us in all of our vehicles. You never know when you are going to need one. My last umbrella sadly was starting to fall apart. I think it is from the heat of the car. So when I ran across this one I decided to give it a try.
The umbrella comes with a storage pouch , which my last one did not have. The one folds down to a compact size that fits great under the seat of my car, it is about 12 inches long when folded down. When open it is about 21 inches. I love how easy it is to open. There is a button on the handle, just push it and it pops open. There is a small strap around the umbrella to keep it all together, make sure to pull the strap loose before hitting the button. The strap velcro's around the umbrella. The umbrella is not a huge one when open, I call it standard sized, 2 people could fit under it with only maybe 1 shoulder getting wet. Which is still better then being soaked all over.
I received this product free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
