14 oz just shy of 14 oz Using my kitchen scale (with the sleeve on), I weighed it just now
Approximately 38" from the tips of the ribs to the tips of the ribs when fully opened.
Wind vents make a difference for me only if the umbrella does not get straight hit by the wind. I will push the vents down and not permit the air to escape if it does that. Yes, it does make a difference, but not in all circumstances. It's fine when the wind is normal.
I am not sure what you mean by standard? These travel umbrellas are all the same size. Would you like to know if one is more affordable than the other? It is an Amazon dynamic where some colors are easier to obtain and others are harder to obtain. So when you want a "basic" black, you can get it for a cheaper price. You may have asked for that reason but I'm not sure. If so, please let me know. You can order the color you want and the price you want--they are the same so far as i'm concerned. As for the repel brand, I have bought it as well as Amazon basics. A size, a travel umbrella, and an umbrella for travel. Other than the Amazon basics having a wind vent, there is no difference between them.

It is made of cheap materials. The umbrella I own has only ever worked a few times and I am not satisfied with it. Basically, it's an umbrella that opens automatically. But it wouldn't open all the way when it went up. The inconvenience was not that big of a deal to me. However, after using it only three or four times, I found that one of the "arms" would not bend. The flat side would be the one on the top. Last night, I realized the entire arm was broken and I couldn't use it at all! You can see the pic clearly by looking closely. I found that the metal was fraying! In what way? That's not even possible, how could that In any case. Was a waste of money and I've been meaning to send it back for too long now. There will never be a time when I buy another umbrella.
Rather than purchase a better umbrella, I bought this one. It had a wind vent so I hoped it wouldn't just shed rain off the roof, but also the wind as well. I reviewed the Repel umbrella due to its wind vent. It didn't, well, that's for sure. The first time I used it there was a small gust in the rain, nothing out of the ordinary, turning it upside down and ripping off one of the flaps leaving the rib poking through the vent. In a rare twist of good fortune, a customer service representative invited me to return the broken one, as per Amazon policy, and sent me a replacement with one of the following features Shipments are made on the same day.
Despite having only used the umbrella lightly for one day, the plastic tip cap of the umbrella fell off. As an added challenge, the umbrella is now leaking from the spot where it was screwed back on. There is also a problem with the overlapping area of the (thin and fragile) fabric at the wind vent, and as a result, it allows rain to enter the wind vent when it's windy. I found the product to be disappointing all in all.
Worked for a while, but now makes no sense. The last time I got this was some time ago. The rusty underside has begun to squeak and wear out the mechanisms. However, for a product that comes into contact with water I would have hoped that I would not have to deal with rusting.
fails to do what it is supposed to do. According to Wirecutter's review, this is the best umbrella on the market. My first impressions were positive, as the umbrella looks and feels sturdy, and the mechanism works well. I also like that the umbrella is compact and fits in my backpack just fine. It is still in good shape and fully functional, however it also won't do much good in a Florida rainstorm. Although I may get my legs wet because it's not very large, when a gust flips it despite the vent, the product just doesn't perform as intended. You can use it as long as it's a light shower and there is no wind. Just keep an eye out for gusts of wind.
The Amazon website. Once again you have done it! Is that all I have to Despite its lightweight structure, this umbrella is very sturdy, and its automatic mechanism allows it to open and close efficiently. In addition to the sturdy frame, the umbrella is lightweight. Although, if weight is a consideration, it is a little heavy for an umbrella. This device is definitely a bargain at *$17 and you should pick one up! Having said that, my only two issues with this watch consist of the wrist strap that feels cheap and the "Amazon Basics" logo on the velcro strap that is not very attractive. It is my pleasure to review AmazonBasics products. They are terrific bargains That logo is hideous, even though the products are excellent. get rid of the logo on the velcro strap by removing the thread. A few minutes of careful work and BAM, you've got yourself an umbrella with a nice design on it.
The city of So is where I live. The weather in California is so nice that I don't need a lot of umbrellas. In preparation for a trip to New York City this Thanksgiving weekend, I purchased this umbrella. It made me so happy to do it. I could easily tuck it into my backpack. It was the Monday night rainstorm that served as the test. It was windy on 56th street, with powerful gusts tunneling through. Two or three times, I thought I was going to become airborne because of the strength of the umbrella. A number of umbrellas were broken and flipped inside out by other people. This is the corner of 56th Street and 6th Avenue. Among the broken umbrellas in the garbage can was an overflowing container It was the first time I saw anything like that. I am introducing this umbrella to you I still have it in me. In order to take a half point off for construction, I must subtract 1/2 point. There are reinforced ribs and the construction appears to be good. While the torque of the spring makes it easy to open automatically, it is difficult to close and lock when it is opened. Over time, I noticed that it became easier for me to use. After figuring it out, I found that pulling the knob down with two hands is the best way to lock the umbrella. The umbrella is great, but Amazon might want to create a small video showing how to use it. Overall, I'm pleased with it.
The majority of people would see this as a good thing. My only desire was to have an umbrella like a regular one. At first glance, it appears to be a golf umbrella, but when I open it, it's not. Because I wanted a button that could be pressed to open and close it, I selected this one. In this case, yes. In spite of the band around the top, I like how it looks. Therefore, taken into account my height of 5'2 it isn't really to my taste. But I do not plan to return it. There will be a lot of people who will like.
