I just received this pack umbrella that looks amazing and functional. I have been able to release the lower section ( handle). I can’t release the middle section. I think I am doing what it suggests in the diagram. Any suggestions?
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-
Get a spanish phone number with Airalo. eSim, so no physical SIM card. Easy to use app to add more funds if needed.
Thanks! What a common sense approach - YouTube! 😊. That was very helpful. The umbrella is open now! But in my défense, my husband had to really work to get it open. It was really stiff. But now it is fine and it works great for me. Thanks again. I am really looking forward to using it.

Just don't tighten it up too much!

One trick that I learned after using mine a lot - If you pass through an area with low hanging trees you don't have to completely remove the umbrella. Simply unsnap it from the shoulder strap clips and collapse the umbrella canopy, maybe shorten the handle a bit, then snap it back into place. Reverse the process when you are clear of trees and brush.
