Take cover from brutal sun and crazy 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.

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 to keep out the sun and rain

가볍고 자외선과 비를 막아주는 우산이다. 끝부분이 EVA소재로 되지 않아 혹시 배낭을 찢거나 텐트를 손상 시킬 수 있다는 걱정은 된다. Zpacks에서 한번 고려해봐줘도 될것 같다. 그러나 난 zpacks를 사랑한다.

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
