Why our customers love it

This UV sun umbrella is the result of feedback from many of our customers. You wanted an elegant and wind resistant sun umbrella, that also fitted into their handbags when not in use. You asked for a wrist strap and a better shaped bag, so we added those to this design.

UPF50+ rating: Enhanced with a sun blocker to provide UPF50+ protection, which will keep you cooler and protect your skin, without giving you hat-hair.

Rain resistant: The sun blocker also causes water to bead off the canopy, so your parasol will protect you if you get caught in the rain.

Comfortable to hold: Teardrop shared wooden handle, for a comfortable grip.

Durable: A high quality mechanism and fibreglass ribs, for a durable and long lasting sun umbrella.

Stylish: The canopy is made from a cotton blend fabric to differentiate its appearance from a rain umbrella and evoke a Summery vibe.

Wind resistant vent: Wind vent built into the canopy, to allow any breeze to dissipate ensuring that your sun umbrella will not invert.

Perfectly sized: The open canopy diameter (93cm or 36.6 inches) is slightly larger than our other products.  It can be angled to maximise your shade to protect your upper body, whilst being unobtrusive in a crowd.

Ideal for carry-on luggage: The folded length of the parasol (35cm or 13.5 inches) will fit inside luggage or handbags, making it ideal for travellers and ladies on the move.

Lightweight: Weighs just 290 grams, making it comfortable to hold for any length of time.

Carry bag: Includes a matching carry bag, to protect the sun umbrella and make it easy to carry when not in use.

    Summer sun solution

    This was a great option recently for my trip to Broome -- much better than a hat

    Prettiest Umbrella

    Very functional. Handles the wind very well. Folds to a nice size so I can put in my bag. I love the feeling of the material. And most importantly it protects me from the sun.

    So good for me as a sun-sensitive person

    Absolutely amazing! Less of a need for a hot hat that ruins my delicate hair (due to medications). I feel cool and protected from the sun. Thank you.

    The umbrella that I bought is a birthday gift. I have bought it as a gift because I purchased one for myself a couple of years ago. It is very useful as I am very sun sensitive.

    Compact Sun Umbrella

    I bought this to use when I'm in Spain and I have to say I'm really pleased with it. I'm very fair skinned and always use factor 50. However I'm now not so reliant on sunscreen. The umbrella is easy to fit in my handbag and also protects your hair. Another bonus is It keeps you feeling a lot cooler in the heat. I'm going to order another one to keep in the U.K. We don't get a huge amount of sun but it's great to be prepared.

    Life changing

    As someone who has become more and more sensitive to the Australian sun, having the Sunbella in my handbag has been a game-changer. It’s light and airy underneath so you don’t feel hot and sweaty under hats and layers of sunscreen. It’s beautifully constructed and sturdy and looks great. I’m now not dreading the Australian summer!

    Sunbella UV protection

    Great. My wife said it stops the UV rays so she uses it every afternoon on her walks. The vent is great because the umbrella doesn't flip inside out in gusty conditions.

    Brilliant Product

    I have recently had a basal cell carcinoma cut out of my scalp ( it’s the only area I could not apply SPF 50+). This product allows me to have sun protection without the need of a hat (I suffer from hat hair and overheating). The Sunbella, fits in my bag and is my constant companion. Thank you Jillian and Casey. Jenny Qld

    Fantastic umbrella. Easy to use and store. Would buy another if it came in a darker colour. Thanks for providing a great range of quality products. I hope to purchase one of the shawls soon.
