Black storm shield umbrella
I was looking for a large umbrella suitable for both myself & my daughter to protect us from wind as well as rain on the school run, this more than fit the bill, very pleased with my purchase, windproof & strong and not particularly heavy.
Perfect when you walk through the storm
This purchase was to replace my previous Fulton Storm Shield - a trusted companion for several years - which was stolen before Xmas.
I therefore know that this umbrella performs well in blustery weather and lasts well too.
I selected the Debenhams offer from an internet product search because of the "Blue Cross Sale" label, which I thought indicated a link to the Blue Cross animal sanctuary charity. Apparently there was no such link, though I think it would be good PR for Debenhams to make some contribution to the "other" Blue Cross!
Having arrived at the site I found the product in stock, at a good price, and went through a smooth and painless purchase process, resulting in delivery of my new umbrella when promised.
Can't really ask for more!
unbrella too big to carry around
Bought as a present. Looks very sturdy and well made.Recipient was very pleased just what he wanted. Not yet tested for use in high winds but sure it will do the job described.
like this umbrella
I purchased this umbrella before and enjoyed this. Will buy for parents as well.
Large but lightweight
I was looking for a large, strong umbrella to last me a long time. This umbrella is definitley large, in fact large enough to give shelter to two people. Since it arrived, the weather has been both wet and windy and this umbrella has proved itself as far as I'm concerned.
It is solidly constructed with a strong stem that looks like it's made out of carbon fibre or fibreglass. making it lighter than I thought it would be. The handle is also nicely covered with a soft rubber grip, giving you a non-slip handle which has been useful in the recent winds, during which there has been no hint of it turning inside out and I doubt it ever will unless the wind is extreme.
It comes with a cover/sleeve to keep it neat and protected when not in use.
Bought this umbrella for my son as cheaper ones always blowing inside out. Unfortunately, when ordering it I mistakenly thought it was a collapsible one. When I sent it back, thinking the wrong one had been sent, I was sent the identical one again. I admit it must have been my mistake but it is much too big to take to work when needed. I find the mechanism very stiff, especially when trying to take the umbrella down. It is very good quality, and extremely large but I think it is too cumbersome for my son to ever use it. Next time I will make sure I read the description more accurately.
I'm very happy with this umberella it is good value for the money. Seems to 'work' in the windy weather well! Comfortable to hold etc..
