No more folding umbrella for me. I have had trouble opening a folding umbrella when there was a sudden downpour. Also it always overturned when there was a heavy breeze.
I had many folding umbrellas. I gave them all away and have now settled down to the ordinary, gent’s umbrella. It is large and protects me fully. I have no trouble opening it, either.
Staying trendy is fine but not at the cost of discomfort. I am happy I took this decision. It is quite durable and I am having it for the last two years.
The tone of the umbrella I notice meets with Kim’s pastal colour challenge.
Do you still use a folding umbrella?
