Just a note that the Papworth Travel Goods website has some Brigg Golf umbrella seconds for £35 at the moment (various colours) - there seems to be some scratching on the metal shaft of the umbrella which is why they are seconds. I'm very tempted even though I already have one Brigg golfer and one Brigg solid shaft cherrywood - sturdy umbrellas are a necessity here on the south coast to battle the Brighton gales...

I also texted my near neighbour and asked her if she wanted me to collect her from her house so we walked together to the station with both of us hanging on to the shaft and cover of the umbrella to try to keep it facing the wind. Even with two of us holding it, the umbrella blew out a...

Thanks to RJ for pointing me to the latter. These are the seller's photos, I'll have to see how they look in person... LOVE the second one......

I opened my Brigg golfer when I left the house but was forced to close it within about 200-300 yards as the wind was threatening to blow it completely out of control. I had a briefcase with me and so only had one hand to try to control the umbrella, which was impossible in those winds - I would think the...

Where are you Jay Jay - here on the south coast of england we can get really wild weather from time to time - on a scale of 1 to 10 I would say that yesterday was a seven or maybe an eight. I have a 20 minute walk home from the office and the Brigg golfer just about survived, although I was hanging on to it tightly with both hands - I guess we...

My brigg golfer has seen a bit more wind over the last couple of weeks - I had to angle it against the rain one day last week but it feels really sturdy so I would think it will take a really strong wind to put it at...

Its not been tested by the wind yet, but Im sure there will be times when I need to hang on to it! Hi Steve - Friday was one of those few days when I had to close my Brigg golfer because of the wind. I was working in...

There was a decent breeze but it wasn't too windy - that amount of rain with a really strong wind...
Did you get your Brigg Steve? You would surely have needed a good brolly last night against that terrible torrential downpour......
