Unbelievable. After less than a year, and less than a-dozen uses, the Shelta umbrella I bought last May has already broken.
It’s not totally unusable, but structural integrity has been severely compromised.
I’ll certainly be chasing up the 12 months warranty as soon as I can find the receipt, but in the mean time, what are some more robust alternatives?
All I really want is something strong, durable, compact enough to fit into my bag, and light. Is that too much to ask? I don’t mind spending a bit of cash, because I’m pretty good at not losing them.
Any other candidates?
And by the way, where does one get a pair of tough, okay-looking black work shoes?!
PS. Regular commenter Flerdle gave me a demo of her Senz umbrella (the standard size); it’s a slightly out-there shape, but looks really good. Thanks Flerdle.
