Rated 2 out of 5 by 3iopj not ideal for breezy conditions
I bought this umbrella at a good price to add some color to my yard. Should have known when price was real good the product wouldn't be great. I put it up and with in 1 day, a screw had worked its way out and fell into the pool. Luckily we found it before it rusted at the bottom. Another time, I had it opened up & it was secure in a sleeve made for umbrellas in the cement, next to the pool. A wind gust came up & pulled the umbrella out of the sleeve & it bent & broke the pole on the way out & then the bottom of the pole hit the cool decking scraped the cool decking off the cement!! My other umbrellas I have had for 7 yrs. & have blown out of the sleeve during BIG wind gusts a couple times. This umbrella was pulled out a few times in a couple weeks during breezy w/gusty conditions, in AZ.. It is lightweight, a little flimsy, and not put together very well. My suggestions would be: Tighten all your screws. Make sure the umbrella isn't open if you are experiencing even slight wind gusts...

The umbrella is large, durable and stable. It opens easily and looks great. If used with a stand, it's great for the patio or beach.

You can find this type of umbrella priced 3 times higher at some stores. This was a great price, and as a result, an excellent value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by colliemom Surprisingly nice!
And the price was amazing. Had a hard time finding an umbrella to match the berry-colored cushions on our patio chairs -- not red, not dark burgundy. This was an almost perfect match, and I am a happy camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seatrout2 The size is perfect
I had been looking for an umbrella with a crank handle. Very easy to open and close. Light weight but durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JayJoy2 It's and ok umbrella for the price
I bought this umbrella about a year ago and it is a good umbrella. The only suggestion is to make sure you close it whenever you are not using it, mine faded in under a year. I also recommend taking it down during very high winds.I live in the Midwest and it was spring/tornado season and although the tornado did not hit where I am, the wind was strong enough that it broke my umbrella in half. I was at work at the time and when I got home it was laying on the patio ground. So for the price, if it does break, it's not going to bankrupt you if you buy another one. But I think if you just take those few precautions then you should be ok. I know I will next time!
