These things are life savers!

We did a 13 mile hike with a 95 degree heat index and these sunbrellas made a huge difference. Bring your own shade!

The jury is out

I gave 4 stars because I actually had a chance to use hiking yet. I ordered two and one busted the second time i opened it up. My thumb caught on a rib and the rib broke. It should not have done that. It took some doing to get a response from customer service. Finally received an RA and sent it back. Seems fairly well made. It is light and I think that plays into a bit of delicate ness. I’m confident the one that broke was faulty and the replacement will be fine. And I’m sure they give great service.

Super Light Umbrella

My only regret on my 2019 thru hike was not having this little umbrella with me. The Lotus UL provides the protection you need on and off the trail against the elements. I look forward to really testing it out on my next long adventure.

Blocks sun and rain

It was great at blocking the sun and flexible in the wind. I used it for hours in a rain storm yesterday and it was so light I barely noticed I was holding it that long. I plan to bring this umbrella everywhere.
