    Quality small umbrella

    I’m in the market for a small, fairly light-weight umbrella that can fit in a bag.

    Usually I just get the ones from 7-11, but their lifespan isn’t that long. So I thought it might be worth getting a nicer one that will last longer. I definitely don’t want the big ones since I won’t take them out unless it’s raining and then often get stuck without one.

    Any recommendations?

    The outdoor stores. The best quality, longest life ones are from Montbell - Overlander has a good range. They have a tiny version which is fabulous for ultra light weight, but my standard is the slightly bigger but much sturdier one as shown in the link below:

    The Xiaomi is definitely good for the 160, it's a bit bigger than a 7-11 umbrella though. I like it.

    The small one I can carry in my back pocket. It was a fair bit more expensive though (can't remember the price) but as mentioned before, has a usable frame warranty.
