This UV umbrella is the strongest collapsible UV umbrella around. Blunt have developed a series of world leading umbrellas with superior strength and durability. The Blunt UV umbrella XS Metro is the ultimate all-weather umbrella, combining the strength and durability with a UPF50+ rating.
UPF50+ rating: This UV umbrella has a special opaque fabric that blocks 99.99% of the sunlight and more than 99% of the ultra-violet light.
Rain proof, quick dry canopy: An e-Dry water repellent quick-dry coating means with a quick flick and shake the umbrella is instantly dry again.
Durable: The Metro XS + UV incorporates the unique BLUNT Radial Tensioning System to create a fully-tensioned canopy that out performs all other umbrellas. It has been tested in winds up to 88 km/h or Force 9 winds and can withstand wind speeds and weather conditions that typically destroy traditional umbrellas.
Perfectly sized: The open canopy diameter (95cm or 37 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 (36.5cm or 14.5 inches) will fit inside luggage or handbags, making it ideal for travellers and ladies on the move.
Carry bag: Includes a matching carry bag, to protect the uv umbrella and make it easy to carry when not in use.

I love that this umbrella has the capped points, which makes it safe to use when carrying a little one or while in public. It's very compact, which makes it perfect for walks in the sun, especially in a busy area. Best for one person (and a baby) given the compact size.
