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 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!

Great Product

I was a bit taken back on its weight. The new guidelines and locks work great! I was impressed beyond my expectations. Took it out for a test run and worked great through a storm and pouring rain. Not once was my hammock wet nor did my line locks slip. What are you waiting for go buy one!

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.
