For the Rain-Soaked Traveler: WindJammer Auto Open and Close Compact Umbrella
Outside magazine called the WindJammer compact "the only umbrella you'll ever need." It opens into a 43-inch canopy, has a dual-canopy that keeps it from inverting in the wind, and retracts into a 12.5-inch cylinder. Good Housekeeping opened and closed it 150 times without fail, so you can be confident the auto-open/close button won't give out. If there's any lingering doubt, the umbrella comes with a full lifetime warranty with a repair and replacement guarantee.
