I was amused to read the packaging when I received this umbrella because it boasts Totes Umbrellas For Men. I'm not exactly certain how to discern a man's umbrella from any other but this particular product doesn't strike me as masculine at all. It's a micro umbrella, which I was expecting, and without the case it'll fit more than easily in the average handbag. That said, it'll keep my head dry...and that's about it. (I'm 5'3", 130lbs.) On top of that, this umbrella will definitely flip up & out if the wind blows; that became more than apparent when I quickly pulled the umbrella down and the canopy flipped up. Now, I'm not insinuating that I plan to send the umbrella back because it's perfect for a lady to keep in her bag just in case; and that's exactly what I plan to do. But, if you're looking for an umbrella with more than minimal coverage and/or an umbrella that can withstand a real storm, this is not the umbrella for you. I must mention that I gave a 3 for value because the hard zippered case the umbrella comes in is good quality, sturdy, and I intend on using it to store items other than my umbrella. Also, I caught this item on sale...so, for the reduced price, with the auto open & close feature, it's a cute little umbrella to keep on your person for standby in case of unexpected showers.
