I received this product at a discounted rate for my honest & unbiased review. I purchased this because, well, who doesn't need an umbrella...especially living in FL?! Rainy season will be here in just a few short months, so I figured I would try this Brooklyn Basix DriRun Umbrella.
This umbrella comes in a really nice tube shaped box to keep the umbrella safe from damage when shipping. It has a nice sheath around it, as well to keep the umbrella canopy closed up. After I read the directions; I decided to try it out. It is SO easy to use...I removed the sheath (cover), un-velcroed the umbrella, and clicked the button on the handle and POP the umbrella was open. To close you just click the button again and the canopy will close, then wrap it up with the Velcro, and push it down towards the handle to lock it in place. The umbrella is very light weight and small enough to fit into a large purse or keep in the door of your car. It has a nice wide canopy when opened (about 40" across) that is not only wind & water resistant, but UV protected as well, so it provides protection from the sun.
This is a very nice umbrella for the money and the fact that it has UV protection (for me) is an added value. I would definitely recommend this umbrella to friends and family, especially here in FL. Get yours here: Brooklyn Basix Umbrella
