The umbrella was not disappointing to me, but the push button to open it is too tight to use one finger, as I do on my other umbrellas. The price is less than a cheap brand, though, so I think it is a good value and i'll deal with the button.

The second time I used it I found I the button that activates the opening mechanism was stuck. (You can't open it manually.) While pushing it this way and that the button fell out of place onto the ground. Eventually managed to open it by pushing an object through to the catch. I'm not sure if it can be fixed. The umbrella overall seems about as sturdy as other lightweight folding umbrellas, but the handgrip and button are very light plastic.
