I ordered both the Compact Umbrella and Travel Umbrella. The Compact Umbrella is the same size as your standard rain umbrella, which is what I wanted while on the go. The Travel Umbrella is longer and slightly larger, but for one (1) individual, the Compact Umbrella was just the right size.
As others have mentioned, the Compact Umbrella takes a bit of strength to close. But it's something I'm willing to get used to given the other advantages of this umbrella--great UV protection, solid construction, and excellent quality.
