I saw this umbrella everywhere when living in New Zealand for a year and just got back to NY. I was fed up with $20 umbrellas breaking and blowing inside out especially while walking around the city so I purchased one of these! I just received my Blunt Umbrella XL and I love it. It's a tad bigger than what I want which may prove itself to be a pain on the streets of Manhattan, but the classic was too small. I'm usually out and about with others and I'm quite tall so I think this will be a great size for me.
I wish they had orange in this size but I chose the red. I wanted something bright so I don't forget about it or misplace it. Can't wait to use it!
