This patio umbrella is a nice addition to my patio - it is easy to open and provides the right amount of shade I need for the area. Because it tilts it gives a lot of option for shading the patio as the sun's position moves throughout the summer.
Easy to assemble, very sturdy and solid. Easy to crank, I love the crank handle feature. I have yet to see how the fabric holds up to weather, if it fades or tears - but the fabric seems sturdier than my last umbrella. I am happy with it. I would recommend this product.
