I have always purchased the GustBuster for my son. This is the third and was happy to find it available on Overstock! My son lives in Seattle where the rain and winds torment the usual run-of-the-mill umbrella but NOT the GustBuster! his last one got caught in the branch of a tree and ripped the top so I came to the rescue by going to Overstock! Thank You from my son.
This item was exactly as described and seems to be well made and constructed. I purchased it for my daughter and she loved it!! My only issue was with the way it packaged for shipment. The item was shipped in a padded envelope and obviously something heavy had been placed on top because the box the umbrella was in was completely crushed and out of shape. Luckily the umbrella was not damaged!
I'm giving a middle of the road star rating. Here's why: I honestly do not know how to rate this. I'd like to give it only ONE STAR due to the fact that the one that I received was damaged. It was scratched and dented. I'm afraid that it could possibly bend in a breeze. And I had to go through the hassle of returning it. And, I'd like to give it FIVE STARS as it IS a lovely umbrella. The color is great. It felt sturdy (other than the damaged area). Would be great for a man or a woman. Large canopy. And I like the straight handle. I had ordered 3 different umbrellas at once to compare. This was one of the nicer ones. I would order again when I am in need of another umbrella.
