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!

Umbrella review

So far so good, used it both hurricane systems that passed through Georgia while training for 2024 AT through hike, no issues, like the clip for shoulder, Didn’t have to hold it under 30mph winds, occasionally on high ridgelines one hand doesn’t hurt Great product guys, thank you

Very good. I’ve used it mostly for sun shade and it really makes a difference in radiant heat.

Great trail umbrella

As a first time trail umbrella user I was very pleased with how dry I stayed during a couple of heavy thunderstorms on a recent AT section hike. Unfortunately one of the ribs broke but the umbrella still worked fine. Even though it broke I’m giving 5 Stars since it kept me dry anyway and for the fantastic customer service from Zpacks...just got a brand new replacement umbrella in the mail!
