    Theres a $10.00, 5.5 ounce, umbrella H&M sells that I've been using for 4 or 5 years now. I've got a couple to keep one in my car as well. I like these so much I would probably not spend 40 bucks a chrome dome type unless in the desert.

    Breaking down camp in the rain is much easier when you can wear your rain shell and set your pack under tour umbrella when it comes time to break down the tarp. Very convenient for me.

    I don't mind the cheap Chinese stuff. Stuff is getting expensive these days...ridiculously expensive. Once the boat arrives from China, I help support the US dock workers, customs inspectors, truck drivers, train engineers, maintenance crews, UPS/USPS and anyone else that may be involved in delivering the $3.92 trinket to my doorstep.

    Ah, so grasshopper. Could you say that in Mandarin?

    I suppose there is a way to rationalize most decision. Even when it isn't in the long term interest of remaining a sovereign nation. Especially when it concerns the country that is unquestionable poses the biggest threat. Plus has been stealing technology, deep into corporate espionage, reverse engineering, government support of predatory pricing, uses 'criminal', slave, and child labor, aggressively targets neighboring countries, and so forth. But what the hey, as long as I only have to pay $3.92 who me worry
