Took to Disney World in the 104 degree heat. It was nice for staying out of the sun. Used a handicap scooter and kept it on the handle trying to stay out of sun. Must have a "tightenable" handle, it was awkward. Had to hold it on the scooter handle. I could force it on the scooter's handle because it has a loop with slit. Large enough to cover me but too large to use in the crowd for fear of hurting others around me. A small rectangle, rentable umbrella would have been much better. Too heavy to carry around as you can a normal umbrella. Can't be used @ Siesta Key beach because of the rounded looped handle.
