I'm a skin flint and always looking for a bargain. Got myself one of these a few months back, mainly for the vision panel.

(It's pretty good actually face)

You are correct Kev a lot of cheap gear is useless and i tend to stick wit reliable names for my tackle but i would be inclined more to save on stuff like this and spend more on the bits of tackle that catch fish!!

Had look through my catalogues--- the lightest is a fibre lite brolly--50" the bad news is that it costs about 60 quid, and its either grey or navy blue, not a green/camo one in sight

jrc stealth. the basic brolly is all you need for days or summer nights..i have an overwrap and front infill panel for long stays in winter. I use it all year round, just a couple of weeks ago I spent the wknd out and it was well in to minus temps, think it got down to minus 5 or 6. my trusty stealth served me well as always.

Been and done it with brollies for course fishing, the light weight expensive ones don't last and are very easily broken with the wind.
In the end I opted for a steel rod constructed brolly with a heavy thick fabric, it's lasted years and didn't cost a lot.
