Try on a diff browser. I think it fails on Chrome. But FF is OK.

Thanks for the code Nightstalker! Worked for me in chrome; ordered a metro for me at work and nearly succumbed to a larger one at home but thought I'd wait and see how I get on!

They are great. Don't get the small one however as it's really small when open and just keeps your face dry

Depends on the purpose, really. I ordered the smallest because it is so compact - at less than half the length when folded compared to the next largest, it’s the only one that can easily fit into a pack (which is what I’m getting one for).

 

My wife has one of these small ones (for the same reason - it fits in her handbag) and finds it works fine for those times caught without a raincoat. 

 

At these prices I did try to convince her we should also buy a larger one for home but no luck!

Its not the first time thats important, its how long they last.  Blunt do seem to have a good reputation.

 

My best ever umbrella was a hugo boss one.  Had a curved handle which I like, and lasted for 7 and possibly more years.  The possibly is because someone pinched it, so I have no idea if its still going strong.
