What is the best uv sun umbrella for me?

Compact or "stick-style"?

Firstly, all Sunbella UV Umbrellas and UV Parasols are all rated UPF50+, meaning they block at least 98% of UV rays - so whichever parasol you select, you can be confident that you are getting the best possible protection.

Some of our parasols are "stick-style" - meaning that they don't fold down, but are very elegant.  If you're looking for an elegant solution, view our stick style sun parasols. 

Our other parasols fold down to fit into your hand bag.  If convenience is your thing, check out our Compact Cosmopolitan sun umbrellas. 

Which sized handle?

Stick-style parasols are available in two sizes. Women under 160cm tall (5'2") find the short handle more comfortable. Taller women (over 160cm) prefer the longer handle. 


Which colour sun parasol provides the best sun protection?

The colour of different fabrics can enhance or detract from the UV blocking effectiveness of some fabrics. However, all of our fabrics are so tightly woven that the colour does not affect the UPF rating of our parasols. They all have the highest possible UPF rating. 

Will these parasol protect me from the rain?

Our parasols are rain resistant. The sun blocker treatment, applied to the fabric, causes water to bead off the canopy. However, they have a slightly smaller canopy than a rain umbrella as they are designed primarily as a sun umbrella - they can be angled to maximise your shade to protect your upper body, whilst being unobtrusive in a crowd.

Will I feel cooler under a Sun Bella parasol?

Yes! The fabric on all of our parasols has been rated UPF50+ by the Australian Radiation and Nuclear Protection Authority.
The unique, tightly woven fabric is enhanced with a sun blocker to provide UPF50+ protection, helping you stay cooler and protect your skin at the same time.
Wind vent built into the canopy, to allow any breeze to dissipate ensuring that your sun umbrella will not invert.

Are the sun parasols comfortable to hold?

Yes! The teardrop shaped wooden handle allows for a comfortable grip.  They are lightweight too, weighing just 250-290 grams (depending on the style) making them comfortable to hold for any length of time.
Plus your parasol comes with a matching carry bag, to protect the sun umbrella and make it easy to carry when not in use.

Just how big are they?

The parasols are perfectly sized - slightly smaller than a rain umbrella, it's smaller size makes it sleek and unobtrusive in a crowd. The smaller diameter works well in more crowded situations, so that you're not bonking people in the head or jabbing eyes. The canopy diameter of the Stick-style Cosmopolitan is 80cm, which is large enough to be effective as you can angle a sun parasol to the suns rays. The canopy diameter of the Compact Cosmopolitan is larger, closer to the size of a traditional umbrella but still small enough to be more convenient

Why should I use a UV umbrella / UV parasol? I already have a rain umbrella, can’t I just use that?

A standard rain umbrella, made from regular black pongee fabric has a UPF rating of just UPF15. Your uv umbrella / uv parasol should specify on the tag that it has a UPF50+ rating to ensure that the maximum % of UV rays are blocked.

Fabric: Cotton blend
Mechanism: Manual
Designed in Australia, made in China.

    Fantastic. At a recent wedding, outside, under clear skies, 33°, it was perfect. My parasol provided, an elegant, slightly quaint, alternative to a hat. There was no concern with hat hair, no sunburn and I was cool because the mild breeze wasn't hindered. Comments were positive, and I am hopeful I've sown a few seeds.

    I was so happy to read the piece in the paper as no-one seemed to know how to buy a parasol. I love it. Not so sure about the shrug - I'm not so good with that but hopefully will get used to it. Parasol is great.

    Elegant and protective!

    Just love my new parasol . The longer handle is perfect for my golf bag and so light to carry. Excellent protection from the glaring sun. The design and colour is very cool.

    A North Queensland necessity

    I like the size and pretty design of this style; it is light and provides effective cover without encroaching on the personal space of others around me.

    Love it!

    Love as an alternative to a hat (no more hat hair) and so pretty. It was my lifesaver at a recent outdoor wedding.
