I grew up in Florida and owned almost 8 umbrellas at one time. Let's just say I wanted to make sure I wasn't caught in the rain without one. Most of them were flimsy and some turned inside out with heavy winds/rain (I was frustrated with those). Since moving to CA I've noticed that people don't really use umbrellas even when there is rain. Hubs says it's just like that. I myself whip out an umbrella with the slightest sprinkle. I received the Polka Dots umbrella and am impressed.
The Cheeky Umbrella came just in time for the weekend rain. The weather here has been wonky, as I've stated before, as it's sunny in the middle of the week and then turns chilly on the weekends. Although it wasn't raining in the morning, I decided to sport my rainboots and bring the umbrella along for potential afternoon showers. Sure enough it turned cloudy and started pouring after church.
The umbrella is very sturdy yet light in weight. It is black with a splattering of polka dots on two of the panels. It has fiberglass, wind-resistant ribs and is stain & made of mildew-resistant, durable, quick-drying nylon fabric with Teflon. This is the most technical umbrella I've owned & priciest but definitely worth it because of it's long-lasting qualities. The automatic opening is great when you need to get it ready to shield Kenzie. Bonus - the handle is slip resistant!
What makes this umbrella fun is the multi-colored polka dots on the entire lining. When you look up, it's a surprise. The size is pretty large (Diameter is approximately 40" when open, length is approximately 35" from end-to-end when closed) and can easily cover both Kenzie and I. There was room underneath for Hubs but he of course declined protection from the
toxic rain. It is just an awesome umbrella overall and has now found it's place in the car for sudden and expected downpours.
Cheeky Umbrella offers long umbrellas, compact umbrellas, kids umbrellas (how cute is the matching polka umbrella?), clear umbrellas, rain or shine umbrellas and custom umbrellas.
