Clongi Folding Travel Umbrella


Available on Amazon by clicking here

BACKGROUND:
When I ordered this umbrella, the product listing had stated that the umbrella was windproof. I set out to test all aspects of this umbrella. As you can see in the video, I found that it was not actually "windproof". I contacted the seller to notify him that I would appreciate it if he updated the listing to get rid of the windproof claim. The seller apologized profusely stating that it was his first product listed on Amazon and he will most definitely update the listing. I verified it was updated before posting this review. I didn't expect that I would be offered a replacement for the way in which it broke, but he kindly shipped another. A+ Customer Service!



PROS:
+ Elegant handle and look
+ Folds up compact
+ Auto open and close button
+ EXCELLENT customer service that stands behind product
+ 30-day warranty
+ Includes a pouch to carry/store umbrella
+ Durable extension rod
+ Lanyard
+ Coating on the umbrella repels rain

CONS:
- Not windproof (yet to find one that truly is)

REVIEW:
The umbrella is 21" wide when expanded. This is, as you would clearly expect, a traveling umbrella. It is not a golf umbrella. Please keep that in mind if you are looking for an umbrella the size of a roof. The look of this umbrella is really nice and elegant. The leather handle really looks sharp. It's a "beefier" frame than you'd get at a discount store for sure. As mentioned earlier, this umbrella is not "windproof" but I have yet to find one that is (despite such claims). Overall, I appreciate that the seller stands behind his products and I'm happy with the replacement!
