A UPF 50+ beach umbrella that doubles as a tent. Has a large, 8-foot canopy with side zippered windows and wind flaps.
Full-size chairs don't fit well underneath. Low beach chairs do though!
SPF Factor and Shade: If you dread going to the beach and getting fried by the sun, you're going to want this UPF 50+ protection umbrella. The Sport-Brella will provide an impressive 8-feet of shade keeping your skin safe and protected from UVA and UVB rays.
This umbrella also features side panels for even more coverage.
Ease of Use: The SportBrella is known for being easy to set up and take down. Storing it is also easy thanks to the bag that fits everything.
The included storage bag is a little over four feet long, so it isn't going to fit in the bottom of your suitcase. It will fit into most car back seats or trunks with out any issues. It also has a strap so you can sling it over your shoulder leaving your hands free for coolers, beach chairs, and whatever else as you walk down to your favorite spot. It's nothing fancy, but it works.
This umbrella weighs a little on the heavier side at 9lbs. But it's nothing you can't handle, right?
Durability: This umbrella is made from 210D polyester, with a center support pole and steel ground stakes. These features not only keep it stable, but also resistant to sun, rain, and wind. The polyester fabric is both UVA and UVB resistant and easy to clean.
The center support pole is relatively skinny. This is actually ideal since it allows you to push it into the sand better. For added stability, this umbrella comes with eight steel ground stakes and three tie down cords.
Price: $60 is a bit of a high price to pay for a beach umbrella but it's worth it for this one. It's easy to use, built to shade multiple people, and will stand up to rain, wind, and sun. It'll give you many happy days at the beach.
