I hav e a couple small tote ones, one is red, the other Im not so sure of. The boys have a Spiderman one each and a Spnogebob one each. I also have a large black one with Edward and Bella from Twilight on it - a gift from the boys LOL 

I use them if I have to, otherwise I just throw my hood up and go.

Several.

Whats it look like?

We have a massive black one (like a golf umbrella, but black), a smaller Mary Poppins black one with the wooden hook handle and several compact ones in a variety of colors. I have a couple that were "accessories" with purses I bought - one really pretty one matches the lining of my favorite purse. Never even opened it, though. I have one in my office in case we have a fire drill (or more likely a false alarm - we reschedule drills if it is raining).

Do you use it ?

Almost never. Umbrellas are for tourists. :-) That is why I always buy coats with good hoods on them!

If we really need one, we usually use the gigantic one. Last time I remember using it was for track meets a couple years ago. Erick and I can set up our folding chairs next to each other -then if one of us holds the umbrella, it covers us both completely. It rained so hard at that meet - the entire time. It was miserable, but we were dry. Poor kids in their soaking sweats......

plain black in the car and a small one in my purse (no clue what it looks like).  Mom got it for me and at a touch it will pop open and then another touch it will collapse.  It's really nice when walking in somewhere and you have your hands full.

I have a bunch.  My Mom use to buy me them for gifts.  I have a yellow sunfloor, a Rainy Day In Paris print one, a Ralph Lauren print one with plaid and ducks on it, ummmm - let's see now - a large black and white golf one we use to walk the dog with when it is raining, a few small Totes we keep in the cars- mine is red and John's is black, and I have a two I like to keep to toss into my suitcase when we travel for just in case - one is a pretty silver and the other is a funky greenish yellow color with a high heel shoe design on itl

I have 3.   The biggest is red and white.   It was a staff gift from a school I used to work in.   The other two are plain Totes ones; not too big.   One is floral: dark shades of purple, red, and yellow.   The other is black with a white paisley design.
