This is s very nice umbrella for the money we paid for it and the convenience of the quick shipping. If you are looking for a heavy weight umbrella with sunbrella fabric this is not for you. That type of umbrella is a different price point than this one. But what you are getting for the money is a decent well made umbrella with a nice tilt and crank feature. The fabric is not thin or ultra thick like a canvas. I would say a medium weight polyester like fabric. The color is a true sandy beige color. Very easy to put together with just a simple inserting of the extension pole in to the umbrella. The plug for the lights was easy to plug into the pole and I ran an extension cord down to our outside outlet on our deck. Not sure how the lights will hold up if the umbrella is left out in the rain. We shall see in time. All in all a nice easy purchase.
Umbrella is well made; can't beat it for the price. I got the khaki color which is true to the picture. The fabric is light, but survived the heavy thunderstorm and rains we got last night no problem. The lights are yellow (I had expected white) but they cast a nice glow on the table. i had trouble with insects being attracted with my last umbrella with white lights, so perhaps this is the answer to that problem. There are 3 settings for the lights, two of which blink. I'm not sure when that would be of use, at least to us!! The lights need to be plugged in, so make sure you have an outlet or extension cord handy. The plug is at the bottom of the pole and does not interfere with use of the umbrella at a table. Umbrella crank seems very solid. Good product.
Got this to replace one I previously owned. The mistake I made last time was leaving it open overnight. A storm came up and spun the umbrella around and stripped the wiring. Won't make that mistake again! We use the umbrella for dining, but also for a soft light near our hot tub when we go out there at night. We've discovered that it looks very cool lit up but not fully opened. Looks like a shimmering lantern!
For the price this umbrella is light in weight and looks very good. In extreme climates it might not be sturdy enough but here in L.A. it is great. The umbrella material is heavy enough and the mechanism to raise and lower the umbrella as well as the tilt hinge are great. Also the LED lighting because it is plugged in and not solar is more dependable. I'm glad I purchased it and it looks good around our pool deck.
I would recommend this product to a friend. It is a great value and good quality. The color is a bit lighter than shown on the computer but it was fine. I thought the lighting was solar lit but it is electrical. I do not have an electrical outlet outside on the ground but I kept the umbrella and I just don't light it.
This market umbrella is good quality for the price. Just went shopping for one and this compared to umbrellas that were double the price without lights. The lights appear to be yellowish when lit but still nice and the light cord is long enough to reach an outlet. Very happy with my choice.
