This product is OK, but I recommend purchasing the Sports-Brella instead. It is the same price (if you shop around), size, appearance, and functionality except it has several design improvements over the "Super" Brella. For example, the Super-Brella uses a friction lever to hold the lower umbrella pole inside the main umbrella shaft. Mine was defective upon arrival and the lower pole would just slide out. I could have fixed it by drilling a hole through the two poles and using a linch pin, but I happened upon the Sports-Brella at a local big box home improvement store and after purchasing it and bringing home, decided to keep it and return the Super-Brella. The Sports-Brella is a much better designed umbrella. For starters, it uses a thumb-screw system which is much less likely to fail than the plastic friction mechanism. Other improvements include stronger stitching, a ventilation system in the "roof" to stabilize against wind gusts, grommets to stake down the back end of the umbrella when it is on the ground, hooks and grommets to hold the side flaps up and out of the way when not in use and possibly several others I am not aware of. Seems the company took all the user feedback from the Super-Brella and implemented the improvements in the Sports-Brella. Maybe someone from the company will fill us in on this.
