Hmmm I'm very sceptical about the claims they are making. I'd like to see it tested against the winds in Edinburgh, then I might believe and $60 is a lot of money for an umbrella, especially for me as I'm always leaving them on buses. I think I'd probably stick with the cheap ones, unless this one had a homing device in it as well.

I agree about the price. I would never spend that much on an umbrella. But I guess everything is relative. I lived in southern california for 40 years so umbrellas were never very important there but I imagine weather in your area makes them a primary piece of standard equipment. Thanks and stay dry.

Well, I don't know if I would invest $ 60. I am always forgetting my umbrellas here and there. I usually have about 3 or 4 in reserve. I buy them when they are cheap on sale. Also I live near Lake Ontario and the winds are quite fierce at times, so I am not sure sure how a hands free umbrella would work.
