since it seemed like something that could break more easily than a manual ...
-It opens and shuts quickly and smoothly when you press the button. Hasn't stuck or anything so far. I was wary of buying an umbrella with an automatic open and shut, since it seemed like something that could break more easily than a manual one, but it apparently comes with a lifetime warranty so I figured what did I have to lose? I've had no trouble with it.
-Nice, sturdy umbrella. The ribs look strong, not thin and flimsy.
-The canopy is pretty wide, this is not a tiny travel sized umbrella you have to huddle under.
-The cover has a zipper about two inches long that widens the mouth, which makes wrestling a wet umbrella into it easier.
-The strap to wrap around the umbrella when it's shut doesn't have a snap, but rather a metal ring that hooks over a protruding button. (You can see the setup in the magnified product picture.) It's a little harder to shut than a snap button, especially when the fabric is wet.
-Not really a con so much an issue with the description, but I wouldn't say it "covers two adults comfortably." It could probably cover two adults if they were standing still and shoulder to shoulder. But it's a good sized personal umbrella, actually feels a little bigger than most, that keeps me and my backpack nice and dry.

I really love it. I was looking for some umbrella that could fight against the wind, as I live in the 'Windy City'-- I am amazed that I have found the product that I was in need of !!
Strongly recommend for all users!!

Awesome Windproof Umbrella
By Gift Card Recipient
This is a no nonsense, easy-to-use, instant-open umbrella that is compact and convenient. This is the kind of umbrella you want when you're exiting a car when it's a down pour. The automatic open (push button) protects you from getting soaked when you're first getting out and when you're ready to get back into your car, the auto-close button collapses the umbrella for a quick entry into your vehicle. I would highly recommend this product.
