Used my umbrella for the first time in early July. What a wonderful purchase. It is exactly as advertised. Everyone wanted to know where I got such a superb purchase. The color was exactly as advertised and the quality is second to none. Easy to use and put away.
This umbrella is not only functional and practical, but the color is bold and bright. It is also waterproof, which is a main feature that I was looking for. There is no more rain on my al fresco dining. I have gotten many compliments on it from my neighbors. With the combination of it's durability, functionality, and appearance, I give it an excellent rating.
This umbrella is just okay. I decided to keep it because it's just too much trouble to send it back, however, I wouldn't buy it again. The material while a nice color red, is flimsy, thin and not up to par compared to the umbrella it was replacing which I purchased for the same price. It will serve it's purpose for 1 season probably, but a disappointment.
We've purchased several patio umbrellas over the years as we enjoy spending time outside, but out of the sun. The color of this umbrella is very true to the picture, (a very bright, pleasant red) and the fabric seems of good quality. The pole seems to be fairly sturdy and of good quality. I would recommend this umbrella for those looking for an economical product that provides good quality for the price.
The umbrella looks great. The color was amazing when I received it. It was the perfect addition to my backyard. Unfortunately, in just a short time, the color has faded and the umbrella is a mixed pattern of faded red. I would not recommend it.
