Samsonite Ultra-Mini Lightweight Umbrella
For those who prefer having a small compact umbrella that they can keep in their purse or car, the Samsonite Ultra Mini Lightweight Umbrella may be the best choice. Although it is tiny and light enough to stow in a handbag or a backpack while traveling, it opens up to a comfortable size, larger than many other mini umbrellas. It is relatively sturdy for a compact umbrella, and reviewers noted that it resisted being blown inside-out, although it is not as sturdy as a full-size umbrella. When it did turn inside-out, the frame was strong enough to withstand being manually reverted without warping. For a big rainstorm, the Samsonite Mini Umbrella probably won't be your first choice, but it is a good option to store in your bag just in case it rains.
