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.

This is the second iteration of this design. The first was the result of a Kickstarter project, which was fully funded in 9 hours. This iteration is a stronger version, with a higher quality mechanism, making it stronger in the wind. It also has a waterproofer applied to the fabric, making it a year round umbrella.

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 (34cm or 13.4 inches) will fit inside luggage or handbags, making it ideal for travellers and ladies on the move.

Lightweight: Weighs just 270 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.

    Compact umbrella

    I love this umbrella especially when out and about in the hot Townsville QLD sun. It compact enough to fit in my Work bag and I mainly use this umbrella on my lunch breaks at work as it makes walking in 33 degree heat a pleasure. So stylish and makes me feel elegant.
