As soon as I opened the box I could tell this was a well made product. Thick fabric, nice construction of the rope mechanism. We’ve had it for about a month and it looks great on our patio and definitely makes it nicer to sit outside. I have to give major kudos to the manufacturer for the resilience of this umbrella. We looked outside this morning after a storm and it was gone. Found it dangling from the roof. LOL. Other than a few smudges it’s perfectly fine! The poles/ropes/fabric weren’t damaged. Would definitely recommend.
I bought this in June of 2018 and for 2 seasons it worked wonderful...until I left the umbrella open in a storm and it blew off the side of the porch and bend the pole making it impossible to fully close. It was still usable, it just wouldn't close all the way. So I took it off and stored it and today when I was going to put it back up, a critter had used it for a nest and tore up the material. This is such a great umbrella, I had no problems with it, except for keeping it closed during storms. I have ordered another one today and will close up the umbrella when it is not in use, I have learned my lesson hopefully...
Love it! Just received yesterday. Nice, sturdy construction. Hoping the sunbrella fabric does hold its color! Will update if any issues.
Excellent Quality umbrella!!! The umbrella is well constructed and made of good materials. Looks fabulous on my balcony, the color is beautiful and it does the job well. Not too heavy for moving around by an older person. Well made and the crank is easy to use.Recommended.
So far, so good but we just got it. Our last umbrella survived 5 years so we will have to wait and see if this one does as well. Seems sturdy and works like it should.
