I have purchased other umbrellas at different locations, they were expensive and only lasted for the season, the sun eate them up and the wind riped the canvas becaming trash, I bought the TropiShade for around *** since it was going to be a trow away but it end being the best purchase, I purchased two more, one every year and the first still up in one piece. I highly recomend the TropiShade.
This replaces another Tropishade umbrella that we've had for years, but lost in a windstorm last summer. For the price they can't be beat! This one has an attached tie to keep it closed, which our previous one did not, so that's a nice addition. Easily cranks up and down. Pole diameter is slightly smaller than our previous one, so it's a tad loose for the center hole in our table, but I'm sure we can come up with a workaround for it.
