Overview

The Davek Traveler is a compact model which features an extremely convenient, small frame system for easy portability. This umbrella can easily fit in your bag or jacket pocket and comes with a soft, genuine leather wrist strap along with a special clip to secure your umbrella to any bag.

Having seen umbrellas practically disintegrate when encountering the slightest gust of wind, we were slightly skeptical of Davek's claim that they make "the world's strongest, high quality umbrellas." But one try and the reinforced-frame system on their compact and full-size models instantly made believers out of us. We are particularly fond of the golf umbrellas, which can handle gale-force winds thanks to their vented construction and have a convenient spike in the bottom to keep it anchored while you swing. The company not only stands behind their product with a lifetime guarantee, but they also offer a half-price replacement if you lose the one you purchased, because they know this is one umbrella you are not going want to let get away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Too Small to be Useful I purchased this with high hopes at my local AE in Washington, DC. I love the idea of this umbrella because it can be stored vertically in my rather small messenger bag. Unfortunately, the umbrella is simply too small to be useful. Even in a very light rain both of my arms were soaked, and even some of my torso -- not to mention my feet and legs, but that is not as unreasonable. I cannot imagine what a heavy downpour would do to this poor thing. I could see this working fine for a very short walk if you really needed a small backup umbrella, but if your commute is much longer than a block I would suggest looking at a different model. Also it's worth noting that I am rather short for a man (5-7), so others would likely find this even less satisfactory. The build quality seems fine and I can't imagine it falling apart, but just be aware of its limitations. April 1, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fell Apart Afer 5-6 Uses For the price I paid at my local AE on Newbury Street Boston, I expected it to be at least as well made as my other umbrellas in that price range. After about three uses, one of the spoke caps came off and then a few more uses later, the strap stitching had started to fray and the end cap fell off. It may be that I managed to buy the "lemon," in the lot. Normally AE have extremely high standards. But this item, I found, was a waste of money. September 25, 2015
