Any idea how much these weigh and what sort of package they're shipped in?
seeing this drop the first time made me want to get it but it ended. So just last week I ordered a Fulton Commisioner umbrella with a gorgeous italuan elmwood handle and black canopy for $58 CAD. Pretty happy about that!
> to John F. Kennedy, dignitaries around the world have carried a Fox.
Fat lot of good it did him. If you're travelling around the US you might want to prioritise a bullet proof vest instead :(

Listen up, Massdrop! You are clearly missing out on a ravenous segment of soy chugging consumers within this marketplace. You guys might even be able to transition into selling estrogen patches.

" Canopy Color" selection drop down have Navy and Black options showing each other's color.

Follow the name, not the picture
Finally got the navy umbrella. Absolutely beautiful. Really impressed.
dang, no tartan / blackwatch plaid.
It's not the umbrella the counts, it's how one uses it:

I didn’t see the bulletproof option offered this drop. Is it too late to amend the drop?

You need special Kingsmen authorization for that option!
Got the umbrella, looking good. I'm so excited about it, the sound that it makes when you open the umbrella is perfect.
Got the umbrella in green. Phenomenal umbrella. My wife loves it. I will get one in navy on the next drop.
I'm very disappointed to see that the navy option is "sold out." How can this be possible if the order hasn't gone out yet to the vendor? Next, what's up with the ferrule? The navy option has a very cool looking black ferrule with an amber tip. All the other umbrellas have ferrules that are closer to the handle. Massdrop, please find a way to make my order a navy, and not a green!
How does Fox compare the Kent Wang or London Undercover? Does anyone know?
The option for Navy shows a black picture and the option for black shows a navy picture. Should I choose Navy if i want Navy?

Hope you got in in time. Navy is sold out.
hello, I'd like to know whether there are any warranty on this? I know it's final sale but never hurts to check. Also, has anyone encountered rusting issues with the ribs?
Any update on this drop?
Fox umbrellas are hand-made in England. I absolutely love mine which isn't automatic. It has so far proven extremely durable, and is definitely standing the test of time. I bought mine with Massdrop and loved that it had a wood handle and wood accent at the tip with a metal ferrule on top. (this one is a bit different) I've had mine deployed in medium winds, and it feels solid and unlikely to break or invert. I spent the money because like Bombenhagel I got sick of spending ~$12 to $25 usd for an umbrella that would get bent or busted in average wind. Or would get lost when I forgot it.
If I had the money, I would easily buy this automatic version because mine is fully manual. If you have the money, this umbrella has been more than worth every cent I spent on it. It's stylish, and has proven to be a solid performer. Unlike cheaper ones, I never forget it, and I'm not afraid to open it when it's windy. kfox: It's made in England, so it's made for regular usage. It's built to be durable, not just to be cheap. I was glad to spend the money because I wanted something nice, that wouldn't take up a bunch of space in my car.

This is from the catalog on their website. I mean short of getting a copy of the shipping paperwork from Massdrop (international shipments require declarations of origin etc.) I don't know how better to confirm it.

Gotcha! Thank you! You'd think they might mention that on their own website.
hi daers,
is this umbrella made in the UK or?
Weren't these on MD a year or so ago for $100+? Living in South Florida, this would most certainly be a useful accessory. My only fear is that it would get damaged by being turned inside out from the wind. I've gone through many disposable-grade umbrellas from strong wind and rainstorms here.
If someone can justify why this umbrella costs so much, I'll buy it.

A little research reveals they are one of the best British-made umbrella companies. They've been making them since 1868 and are very well-reviewed by owners. Would probably be the last umbrella you'd ever need.
When you get a solid wood stick fox umbrella in Massdrop: I commit my order in advance. Always wanted one.
patrickfox
I remember they had one once. Just gotta wait for it to come again. You can find it and request it, too. Might make it come back faster.
These arent made in china r they?

sorry for I didn't make it clearer; "always" refers to when things "not " made in China. LOL
I'm in the drop, I believe you.
The tracking originally said the package would reach me by 4/30, then later updated to 5/7. Still nothing. The package was tendered to USPS on 5/5, and it's still in the "pre-shipment" phase as of today. No updates since. Not a good look for my first drop. Good to know this is out of the ordinary at least.
Congrats wrenhunter! Hopefully, my umbrella shows up on Monday. Having said that, I have no idea the status as the information on DHL/USPS hasn't been updated now for days and is incomplete. Probably like many members of this drop, I have purchased two or three items from other overseas vendors since the shipment date was posted and they have all arrived without an issue.
As luck would have it, my package arrived yesterday. I guess the squeaky wheel gets the umbrella. Oh and please don't use DHL again.
Estimated delivery date was for today. No luck! How could it possibly take this long?
Aside from the long shipping time that others have mentioned, DHL is listing my shipment as "tendered to USPS" on May 2nd. They issued a tracking # for the USPS shipment, and USPS lists the order as having had its "pre-shipment info" sent on May 2nd, but no updates since then. I'm curious if my order is stuck in limbo, as DHL still lists my order having an estimated delivery of May 10th. Whether that is the case, I can't really tell, but it doesn't sit right that it should take over 14 days to receive a delivery. I'm pretty disappointed with this whole process after having had numerous orders work out fine in the past.
My shipment date has been updated twice and is now scheduled for delivery on 5/12. That's 17 days from shipment date. Did they ship to SF via cargo ship around Tierra del Fuego?? WTF is wrong with DHL?? They should refund everyone's shipping cost. Don't use those them again.
Mine shipped 11 days ago, and still hasn't arrived in Boston. And the tracking number has never worked. Can I please get an update on my order? And oh, never use DHL again?
My tracking states "Shipment Returned to Shipper" I guess someone at MD recalled all these umbrellas back home?

@Anzial
It doesn't look like we initiate shipment recall for your order. We are also looking into this with our DHL account rep. I noticed you've submitted a Massdrop Support request, we'll follow up once we find out more.
Exact same issue with DHL & USPS - Item was originally scheduled to be delivered on 4/30 and now not found. I have contacted CS twice but no response. Long time lurker, first time customer. Do problems like this happen often?

Thank you. DHL has been updated and expected delivery is now 5/7. Cheers

Glad that the shipment is finally moving for everyone.
Feel free to let us know via Massdrop Support if there's anything else we can help you with!
When I click the link in the Massdrop email the umbrella has had a status of En Route to DHL Distribution Center since April 26. When I put the provided DHL tracking number directly in on the DHL site it says not found. Any updates on this shipment? Has anyone received their umbrella yet?
Wait_For_The_Drop
I am having the exact same issue. Please advise. Should not take this long from NJ to NYC.
Wait_For_The_Drop
Same issue here. The tracking originally said it would reach me by 4/30. Getting a little antsy because I'm moving in about a week.
