I love Blunt Umbrella's as a product and a company. I bought the XL one, Three years later it broke. Three years for an umbrella to last is crazy in NYC where I live. I contacted the company to see if I could repair it. They said it's past the two year warranty but send it back and if they can't fix it they're send a new one! They ended up sending a new one but I don't see a lot of company standing by their products like this. I recommend any of their products.
If I am to provide feedback on this particular product I'd say it's all the awesome of they're other umbrellas but the U shaped handle isn't great for holding it/doesn't help you hold it like other U shape handled umbrellas BUT it's great for hanging off your desk or backpack while the other U shaped handles DON'T help you in these needs.
