Totes Superdome Auto Open/Auto Close Umbrella
The Totes Superdome Umbrella has a small size that opens up to a large 56 canopy, even bigger than many stick umbrellas and large enough for two people. This reasonably-priced umbrella is built of sturdy aluminum, with three sections in its canopy that allow it to fold up to such a small size. Although it does get blown out sometimes, the frame is built to snap back to its rightful shape. However, you do sacrifice some durability for its convenient portability. Reviewers found that it didn't hold up well over several months of being buffeted by strong winds. Nevertheless, if you want a big umbrella that can be thrown in your handbag or backpack, this may be it.
