Product Description
Frustrated by the number of umbrellas that end up in landfills, the folks behind New Zealand-based Blunt set out on a mission: to make an umbrella that actually works—one that won’t break in a storm, when you need it most. The result? ... Read More

So what is this "tile" that this drop comes without? It's not in the description or discussed here.

Ah. I see. I'm somewhat aware of the Tile, but never saw a need for it figuring that if I couldn't keep track of my keys, wallet, whatever, on my own an app wasn't going to help. Thanks for the explanation. I should have visited the Blunt site.

FYI - I found the small Tile pocket. It's a very small cut out that is bookended by stitching on one of the ends of the ends of the struts. There was a small card in it that said put your Tile here, essentially. It's not marked or labelled on my umbrella. Just take a look at the fabric at each point.

Good price, but shipping and California sales tax puts it to $63 and makes it a “meh” deal with a long wait. Too bad. The MSRP on here is very deceiving too, considering the normal price directly from Blunt USA is $79.00

@BluntUSA, My blunt umbrella classic just arrived. Upon opening, I found out that it is broken/defective. The handle has been pierced and the pole is curved, which is hard to open and close. See attached file for reference. Hope to hear from you soon.

Great umbrella - looks good, the orange colour looks awesome - but it will not stay open!! The slightest breeze pops the umbrella closed. I assume its just a defect with my particular umbrella - but no exchange or refund from Massdrop so I'm out of luck.

This umbrella has been fantastic. I walk about 1.5miles through downtown to and from work every day and this umbrella has been incredible. The gusts in the city come out of nowhere and inverted my old umbrella constantly. In high winds hold tight, this umbrella is more likely to get pulled from your hands than invert. Almost happened to me a couple times when I switched to it. If you're also a city walker the orange has made a huge difference in cars noticing me at crosswalks and I would recommend it.

Great umbrella! I was caught in a rain storm last weekend with terrential downpour and very gusty winds. The umbrella worked great and withstood the high wind!

My order got forcibly canceled which is dispicable honestly, I should’ve been given the option to cancel and since I’ve been dealing with the most asinine ”customer service” rep via email. “Ava“ has let me know that MD doesn’t care about their customers and picked people who aren’t getting their product as well as that they gave up half way through as far as getting the right product to Everyone. What a massive disappointment in a company and their customer service skills.

Too bad Blunt CS has not responded to people's concerns regarding the utter lack of customer service. Phone calls should be answered by a human being and not dispatched to voice mail. Someone at MD needs to address their lack of attention. I purchased an extra large Blunt last month and so far so good but if I needed to address a problem with my Blunt and I never received a call back I'd be pissed and take it to social media. You can't ignore people anymore or you'll be exposed as a bottom feeder.

Very interesting. Thanks for the link. I'm always leery about products on Amazon being authentic (Amazon is LOADED with fakes.) But it sounds like these may be authentic. I was hoping Blunt was more durable, but at this point I think I will stick to my $5 Home Depot umbrella (at least when it breaks I won't be out much.)

I since bought an Athletico 62 umbrella from Amazon and it's great. Robust, big and resistant to wind. Unfortunately there's not a whole lot of rain where I live (Israel), but in the few times I used it I was very impressed.

Why can't the emails that you guys send to the people that joined the drop just be automatically put into the discussion from someone called 'MDStatUpdateBot' or something? It wouldn't be too difficult to put that into some code when you're sending the mass update email to us.
In your statement from http://dro.ps/updates, it had mentioned that you guys wanted to " retain Discussion style updates while increasing visibility and responsiveness". I'm sorry, but I don't see the increasing visibility or responsiveness besides the emails that we get. But on the other side, we lose the visibility and responsiveness that we would've actually received during the time that we would be accessing your website. If I'm browsing Massdrop already, I'm gonna go to my previous transactions, find the one I'm looking for, go to that page, and check that page for updates. I believe that's what most people would do. I'm already on your website, why NOT have the information that I need available ON your website? I don't want to go and have to sift through email just to read that the product has been delayed. Going that route, you'll get a lot more irritated customers than if you just posted it on the drop page. Heck, you could totally make a page that just shows the current status of each drop (eg- Blunt Class Umbrella - Delayed until Sept 28-30 (unexpected delays) like how some sites have a page that gives you a list of all the servers that are up or down.
I'm not trying to bash you guys, MD, but clearly your customers feel like the best place to find information about shipping updates would actually be on *drum roll* your website. Not an email that could potentially be pushed down from the spam, missed, or accidentally deleted.
I believe this is the biggest factor that causes customers to say they've had bad experience. We, as customers, expect information to be 'here' and not 'there' yet MD hasn't listened to their customers complaints for...how long ago did you guys implement that new "email-only" strategy? Back in January? So for 9 months, people have complained or asked: "any update yet?". But MD insists their 'email-only' strategy is the most effective in bringing "Discussion style updates while increasing visibility and responsiveness" When customers have brought up the same issue up repeatedly for months..and nothing has been done about it or changed...
...I hope your MD team has some good resolutions this upcoming New Years and some better ideas...since the customer's 'visibility' in these discussions certainly hasn't led to any 'responsiveness' from you guys.

Why not both? I can't imagine it being too difficult to implement. Don't get me wrong, I understand that Massdrop has grown tremendously since they've started. I'm simply curious why they can't have emails and have responses in the discussions. Especially when they're having vendor issues after having an estimated ship date listed prior to the end of the drop.

Hi everyone. I've yet to actually purchase something from Massdrop, but when I do it will be because of price, not because of customer service. Isn't that what drew you to Massdrop? I know that's what drew me here.

Sure, but most people want excellence in one area and acceptable performance in the others. I don’t come here for great customer service, nor do I come here necessarily expecting the absolute best quality, but if either the customer service or the quality is horrible, that might well drive me away.
So far I haven’t had problems myself, but it’s just silly to imply that since price is what brought you here, customer service problems should just be ignored.

Come on MD, if you miss ship dates you need to acknowledge it right away. If it appears to the community like you don't care (which, as I'm sure you're aware, is a popular complaint these days), it essentially doesn't matter if you actually do or not. That's the message you send. Keeping communication open shouldn't be all that difficult these days, hire more people if you can't keep up with orders.

MD..it doesn't take any time at all to just say something like 'hey guys, having some shipping issues with our vendors which we're working on as I'm typing this. sorry for the inconvenience. I will let you guys know as soon as I get an update!'
And if you really wanted to be lazy, you can copy that statement of mine to use. I'm okay with communicating my feelings about it..unlike some compan-people.

BLUNT™ umbrellas are manufactured near Xiamen in China. As usual, when MD doesn't mention where it's made, it's almost always China.

@BluntUSA and @TomasV: do the Blunt umbrellas from Massdrop ship with DHL or Asendia? I'd pick up an XS (active drop) if I was sure of the latter. DHL charge too much 'handling fees' to make it an attractive drop.
