Very nice umbrella, though I would recommend some waterproofing of the shade; the fabric is thinner than I expected it to be. Otherwise, quite lovely - nice wood, and there's a pulley for opening and closing it with a nice brass pin and chain to secure the shade with lots of holes for choosing how open/high you want the shade to be.

Although I am not displeased with the product that I have received and it came within the period indicated for shipping, the description "Natural" Umbrella Shade and the picture seem to indicate that the product was made of bamboo which is what I was specifically looking for. I can buy a resin/plastic umbrella anywhere but was prepared to order online and wait in order to get one with a bamboo pole. It is not bamboo - therefore the "Natural" is a bit misleading.
I shopped around at many sites and stores in person, and I was worried that this might be a "get what you pay for" situation, but this umbrella seems as good or better than any I saw, and at a much better price. I am using this umbrella at a house on the beach, so it is outdoors 24 hours a day in pretty damaging sun, sand and salt. It's early on, but the umbrella seems to be holding up well. It goes up and down easily and the wood "spines" look nicer than aluminum. The only part I wasn't impressed with is the finial on top, which is plastic and not very fashionable looking, but once you out it together, you never look at that part. I'd definitely buy this again, and I'd be wary of paying for one of those higher price umbrellas.
