This umbrella has lasted for several years and always looked harmonious with my flagstone patio. I has been outside in the California sun for most of that time and only now rotted through in a few spots. The mechanism still works, and I wish I could replace the fabric cover.
I had purchased this umbrella last year, and it's a great addition to the back yard! The lighting adds the perfect amount of ambiance, and the umbrella has been very sturdy. I keep it outside all year, and the blue color looks as good as new. I do lower the umbrella when it is windy, but I do keep it outside all the time otherwise, and I have had no problems with it at all. Pleased with the quality, functionality, and the extra light!
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.
