I wanted to buy a tiki umbrella for a few years. I serached everywhere for it. The best price I found was here on Overstock. I have had this umbrella for about 4 weeks outside on my table. Its worth every penny. The shipping was extraodinary fast - 2 days! An outstanding service again from Overstock! The bamboo is very thick and sturdy, the thatch is thick and fluffy hanging down on the edges. The only con is -there is no automatic open close system. So you have to manualy open the umbrella and put a piece of wood (provided) in the hole of the pole to secure it in open position. My husband said that he can attach some string to the pulley system to make an easy system. I don't really care for it because I will remove the umbrella and store it in the garage during the rain season. Now its on my patio creating an outstanding tropical ambiance. We could not be happier with the results! Thank you Overstock! It was exactly what I was looking for!

Pluses * It looks good once you set it up * It gives a tropical feel * Quick delivery Deltas * Poor packaging- box was torn open and some of the umbrella was noticeably bent * Heavy item * Difficult to assemble (instructions would have come in handy) Considered returning it due to minor damage but was able to fix the problem. Overall content since it adds that resort feel to our backyard.

I am reviewing the second of these I received. The first one was delivered with the hub of the umbrella sticking out of the packaging,,,shipped to a second home and I arrived after dark and decided to put the umbrella up on the rear deck. Got it intsalled through the table and into the heavy base, (a great Overstock product!), and showered and went to bed. At first light I decided to raise the umbrella and found that the hub was so damaged in shipping that the umbrella could not be raised to anywhwere near full height. Called O.co and they shipped another, no issues. The replacement was waitning for me on the next trip, and guess what....exact same situation...going there again in a few weeks and will arrange to get this one returned...moving onto a cloth "market umbrella"...Sunbrella fabric and call it good. If you live any distance from California where these ship from I would be cautious.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, perfectly.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Exceptionally poor...probably related to shipping
- How accurate was the sizing? Pefrect, right on.
