Take cover from brutal sun and intense downpours with our Lotus Ultralight Umbrella. We worked hard to develop the world's lightest backpacking umbrella. Weighing in at just 6.8 ounces it is perfect for beating the heat or helping you stay dry in a storm while still being durable enough to stand up to the abuse of a thru-hike. This umbrella will have your back rain or shine!

Add our Umbrella Holster for hands free use and our Umbrella Stuff Sack for storage.

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!

Great UL Umbrella

Originally I purchased this for sun protection. However, I just got back from a Philmont trek that ended up raining solidly the first 5 days and the umbrella ensured I wasn't always wetted out. Lightweight and handled wind and rain with no issues. We bought two different umbrellas for the trek, and the zpacks umbrella was the one that made it through the trip without breaking. Highly recommended.

Light

I have not had an opportunity to use this in the field but so far the only thing I would suggest is to make it shorter in length so it doesn’t stick above the pack when using the side pocket. Love the weight and diameter though.
