    This review is from: Swiss Gear Comfort Grip Travel Umbrella (Apparel)
    I purchased this product based on reviews already posted and because it was within my price range. It arrived in good condition but after two uses the stitching that attaches the umbrella to the ends of the spines began to break. In all, four of these attach points failed – I have reconnected them using safety pins. This is something that happens to many of these collapsible type umbrellas (at least when I’ve owned them) but had not expected it to happen so quickly. May have been a faulty umbrella to begin with – am pleased that the seller is replacing it.

    Completely broke after one use, December 28, 2011

    I got this umbrella as part of a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, and two days after Christmas he was able to use it. It was not a rain storm in any way, just some steady rain. Within five minutes, tho of the spokes ripped off the material and were sticking straight out with no way to reattach it. On our way back home, it happened to two more spokes which lead the umbrella to turn inside out and in turn completely caused all of the metal inside to bend, resulting in what looked like a pancake with 4 metal spokes protruding from it. I opted to return this item rather than exchange it, because there I just can’t trust this brand or product again.

    Fabric detached on first use, January 21, 2012

    On my first use, the fabric detached from three of the “arms” and on my second use it detached from 3 more. Because I am on a trip and couldn’t buy another one I just sewed the fabric back together and it works fine, nevertheless it is a poor quality product that won’t even last for a slight rainy day with no wind.
    DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT, you can get much better products for less money.
