Rated 5 out of 5 by Corwin Great umbrella for the price.
This is perfect for walking to and from work on a rainy day. Love the auto-release function when you get inside or under cover. Will be getting the full size next time.

I've owned my BB mini umbrella for about 2 years now and I'm happy to see that, when I went into a store last week, they've stuck to the design I have.
These umbrellas not only look great, they're also extremely well made. I go to school in North Carolina, so hurricane Irene hit here pretty badly back in August 2011. This little umbrella took me around campus throughout the storm as I ran from one shelter to another (mostly satisfying my typical college student addiction to caffeine at the coffee shops). Those winds would have ruined a lesser umbrella, but mine only had the fabric detach from one of the arms. Since it didn't rip, instead the sewing just unravelled due to the force of the winds, this was easily repaired by a tailor after the storm. Now, it's still good as new, 2 years and a hurricane later.

This is a beautifully crafted umbrella, especially for the cost. It is compact, and the auto-retraction button is a great convenience. The Golden Fleece logo is subtle, but pleasant.
I think that a little more attention could have been paid to the handle, however. There are some rough spots on it that could have been easily finished without impacting the grain of the wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ninjagaydad broke after thirty days, maybe 5 uses
The umbrella in question broke after minor use. the interior frame became detached from the fabric of the canopy and the entire thing sags as a result. I used this maybe five times before it broke, and owned it for no more than 30 or 45 days, I believe.

When you open it, you can tell it is a well made product. The wood handle is hefty and solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Musketman Best umbrella I've bought
I have had 2 BB umbrellas, the first I lost at a restaurant (lucky finder) and it was a cane style. This compact one is a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThreeArrows Perfect size umbrella
I purchased this for my son and he loves it. It is just the right size to take along and is very well made. Time will tell, but I expect this will not blow apart like some of the other umbrellas out there.
