Great Beach Umbrella!!!
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2016
Great so far. Purchased this item at a local store after reading tons of great reviews online. We purchased it the day before going to the beach on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. We were able to price match it to the Amazon price and got it for $40, instead of $50. The umbrella came in a carrying case with shoulder strap. For the overall size, it folds up well and isn't too tough to carry shorts distances. We arrived on the beach (Hammonasset in Connecticut). The setup was very easy. The super-brella opens just like a normal umbrella. It comes with two sets of anchors, one normal set and one heavy duty set. There are also some strings/rope to spread the anchor points. The heavy duty stakes were great. Even though the beach was not windy that day, the umbrella was very sturdy. You can open the two flaps on either side of the umbrella which will allow breeze to flow though and prevent the umbrella from blowing away. I suggest bringing a rubber mallet. After driving the heavy duty stakes down into the sand with the mallet, I was confident that the umbrella was not going to be blown away. After the easy set up, we were shaded from the high sun from 10:30AM to 2:30PM with full coverage. The umbrella opens big and offer lots of shade. It was enough to easily fit myself, finance and 5 year old laying with beach blankets. I have not tested this out on the beach on a windy day or in the dirt/grass but I will update my review when I do.
