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.

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!

Zpack Lotus Umbrella

This umbrella is so light weight but durable. I used it in a foot race in the Kalahari where this gem helped keep the full sun off of me. Worth it’s weight in gold.

Worth Every Penny!

I have used this umbrella in the rain (it worked great), and just got to try it in the 94 degree heat during my Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike. It was a LIFESAVER! I never felt too hot, and everyone we encountered was asking where I got it. It's also very lightweight. Highly recommend for rain or sun!

hiking the Grand Canyon

the umbrella was wonderful! I’ll always hike with it now. The canyon was 111F at the bottom. I wouldn’t do it again in July, but the umbrella was great
