Barbour® Tartan Telescopic Umbrella

Never let foul weather slow you down. Collapsing down to just over a foot in length, this telescopic umbrella has a classic carved wooden handle. Collapsible telescopic umbrella in green. 12 5/8" long when collapsed.

Nice Looking but cheap build quality,

"First off Orvis sales and support staff are amazing in helping me exchange this product.
With the Barbour Tartan Telescopic Umbrella you are ONLY paying for the Barbour logo on the handle and the trademark Classic Tartan print on the fabric.
I was happy to find the handle is genuine quality Eucalyptus wood. The tartan print is beautiful as well but the positives stop there.
The telescopic stem is so cheap that it broke the first time I pulled the umbrella out the sheath. It just slid back and forth loosely so I exchanged it but the new one does the same thing. The issue is the telescopic stem is skinny and not well connected so with the brolly open it wobbles. Worse even the metal stem is glued onto the wood handle with what looks like cheap wood glue. It is a matter of time before the handle falls off. Said and done, this is truthfully a three dollar brolly you buy on the street to use once and not a $39 quality product. If you could replace the telescopic stem somehow with a beefier stem then it would be good."

Flimsy, poor construction,

"I was quite disappointed with this umbrella. When using it in a windy, rainy storm I tried to open it as soon as I got out of my car and the umbrella wouldn't even open properly. I was standing there beside my car in the pouring rain trying to flip it back into a proper shape. The wood handle is hollow and thin on one end and mine was cracked upon receiving it from Orvis. I love Barbour jackets, but this umbrella does not live up to their name."

"This umbrella is very cool looking but much smaller than expected. Plus it lists a "modern telescopic design" but in actuality, you open it up manually.
I really like the plaid design and the wooden handle but overall I cannot recommend this umbrella."
