The quality of the umbrella is good. However, the color is nothing like the image. It is not lighter like the image...which is almost bone or antique white. The actual umbrella is a dark beige. Very disappointing since the color is a big deal for me. Please be aware that the image is incorrect. What a pain now for me to return it.
I was looking for a free standing umbrella for my deck seating area. This umbrella is perfect! I have a couple of chairs and a love seat that gets hit by the afternoon sun. The size of the umbrella is large and offers plenty of shade. I was impressed on how solid the pole was . Be warned...you need a base that can handle the circumference of that pole. I purchased one that was 1.75 and it was way too small! Found one at Home Depot that could handle 1.75-2.25. Perfect. Someone mentioned being short and difficulty in putting the pin in. True. Thankfully, I can step on my umbrella base ( another plus) to do that. This is a minor detail for what I think is a fabulous umbrella at a great price!
We received the shipment less than 24 hours ago and are already enjoying our new wood market umbrella. The 11' span of this umbrella provides plenty of shade! I want to recommend this product to others, based on the superior quality and practical price.

We had an older similar - and nicer - umbrella, purchased from Costco. But it had become damaged, and this one looked like a reasonable replacement. I wasn't expecting it to be so nice. It's significantly lighter construction than the Costco unit, but seems adequate. The pole, approximately 1.75" diameter, is nicely finished with what seems like a sturdy metal coupling joining top and bottom, good nylon ropes for opening and closing, and an attractive light tan fabric. Only time will show the longevity, but first impressions are positive. Packaging was good and shipping fast.
Nicely made umbrella, its large and needs a wider base for the umbrella pool just like other reviewers shared (thanks for that heads up!) If you are putting it some place prone to wind, it will need to come down often. Its nice shade and a good amount.
I've been buying these TropiShade umbrellas for about 12 years. They typically last 3 or 4 seasons. At that point the fabric is noticeably faded and we want a fresh set of umbrellas. We usually buy 3 or 4 at a time. Because of the low price, I am ok with replacing them every few years. I've always bought the green ones, and the green fabric has always been quite thick. This time I bought 3 of the beige ones. The beige fabric is thinner and lets more light through. I think the green fabric of the past was higher quality. That said, I like the beige color and don't mind that more light gets through. I think the quality of the pole, cords, and other components is still the same as before. For the price, I think these are still a good value.
