We live at 10,000 ft in the CO mountains and the umbrella sustained high winds and lots of rain this past summer. It's still in great shape and we can't wait to get it out next summer and enjoy dinners at our outside table.
This is such a great umbrella. The LED lights are absolutely perfect at night. They're not the "bright in your eyes lights" but a softer light that is totally sufficient. Remember these are bigger 9 ft umbrellas so you need a good heavy stand for them. The concrete patio umbrella stands are the best especially if you have strong winds. I highly recommend this umbrella. We have 2 and when these wear out, I will reorder these exact same ones.
The size of this umbrella is great! We have a 60 ft patio so I bought 3. They look great and will provide great coverage. The material is a little thinner than I would have liked it to be, but overall does provide good protection. I do not recall reading in the description suggestions for the base so I bought a 45 lb base, when I opened the umbrella the pole suggests at least 55 lbs. I will use the 45 lbs since it seems to hold it ok, but will update if it becomes an issue. Beautiful neutral color, great height and easy to put up and take down.
