Overstock made the ordering and shipping process very good. I received this in about a week as promised. It was replacing an older umbrella that was falling apart. I have to say that the material is not to the level that I expected and will probably only last a few seasons in the socal sun.
Overall it is a great value and would buy another one for sure!
I have purchased a number of items from OS in the past few years and this one is my first disappointment. Although the umbrella looked great, it snapped like a toothpick and didn't last 3 weeks. The pole is poorly made. Huge disappointment and now I have to find another patio umbrella. My past umbrella from another source lasted for 6 years amazingly. I was just hoping through the summer for this one....
This is not the Rolls Royce of patio umbrellas. But then it's priced like a Chevy. And at the price it's a decent umbrella that should last 4-5 years unless a really strong wind breaks it. It has the simple metal push button tilt which allows it to tip over enough to be useful when the sun is low on the horizon. The line that raises and lowers it is nylon cord rather than steel cable. So be careful about cranking too hard. The pole is a bit thinner than the one this replaced. But given that it's anchored by a stand at the bottom and the table at about 30 inches off the ground, it seems sturdy enough for all but really strong winds. PS - that's how we lost our last umbrella.....forgot to lower it before a thunderstorm. It tipped over the table / stand and broke the framework for the canopy. Moral of story.....if you want these things to last, take care of them.
