I bought this brolly for my daughter who has recently started walking to and from school. The size is compact, which means it fits neatly into her school bag....the price of the product means it's no big deal if it gets damaged or finds its way into lost property.
It's yet to be used during a downpour, but it feels relatively robust, so I would anticipate it being up to the job.
When I purchased the brolly, I thought it was £7.99 and would have been happy to pay this price. When the helpful assistant said '£3.99 please', I thought he'd made a mistake! Great value.
