I bought this umbrella because it wad automatic and had a pretty 'sky' to look at in the inside.
Although the Umbrella has a pretty sky underneath that makes me smile, that is the only thing that makes me smile.
I like automatic umbrellas because it's easier to use but with this one, after pushing the button to close the umbrella, you then have to push it down to lock it in--and you have to push hard. If you're push the button to close the umbrella while you go into a store for example, you can't just push the button again to open it when you want to use it again. You have to push it down to lock it in and then push the button. It may not sound like much but it's quite cumbersome and annoying.
It is also not wind-proof... It has blown up on me a few times already. I wouldn't buy this again and wouldn't recommend it.
