Recently I had the opportunity to examine and review a Crown Coast Heavy Duty Umbrella. We all need umbrellas, right?? Well, upon receiving my umbrella, I had to take it out of the protective sleeve it comes in, and check out all the features. I loved the feel (texture) of the handle. It is very smooth to the touch, very comfortable. It had a wrist strap that comes in handy. This one also has the push button to open up the canopy - and - this button also closes the canopy. I didn't know that this feature even existed (the closing part). That was neat. I was immediately fascinated by this. The canopy is average size, however, the fabric seems a little heavier than other umbrellas I have owned. I am usually cheap when it comes to things like umbrellas and only ever buy the cheapos. I am impressed.
The mechanics of this umbrella appear sturdy. It states that it will flip back if the wind blows it inside out. I have not had the opportunity to test this, but I will be happy if this is the case. I don't know how many umbrellas I have lost because the wind blows it inside out and ruins it.
Overall, I am very pleased with this umbrella. It comes in a variety of colors. Check it out for yourself.
