I love the retro and whimsical style, so I'm hoping I have better luck with the replacement. This one was shipped separately from the rest of my order, in a long square box, but the box was about 2x as long as the umbrella and the umbrella wasn't wrapped in bubble wrap or anything, so the curved handle broke off.

Bought this twice from Derailed. First time, I bought one, it came with a broken stick. Second time, I bought 2 because I really love the design. Out of the 2, one came with holes and torn strap. Although the other one is fine, it's pretty telling as to the quality of the umbrella! Out of 3, 2 were spoilt. The design is really pretty and I would order more if not for the lousy quality. It's a rather stiff umbrella too; hopefully the plastic would loosen up a little after usage since it's pretty tough to strap it close when it's so stiff. Probably why the strap was torn on that one umbrella.

Love this umbrella--we'll see how it holds up! This is my first dome-shaped umbrella, and I'm looking forward to the extra protection. The plastic (vinyl?) looks pretty sturdy. Again, we'll see how it holds up in the wind.
