Look, I like a good rainy day as much as the next guy.
I decided to try a seriously pricey umbrella and a less expensive option to see how they compare: The Davek Solo ($99), and the Totes Titan NeverWet Umbrella ($20.34).
Let's take a look at the Totes Titan first.
It has auto open and close features, and is designed to withstand winds up to 70 mph.
Next up, the high-end Davek Solo:
Like the Totes, the Davek opens and closes automatically via a single button.
The verdict: Both umbrellas seem similarly strong and durable, but one is $80 less, and way more comfortable to carry — which is why I’d recommend the Totes Titan.
