Rated 1 out of 5 by Russell Try to find something better
This product is cheaply made. Sure, it keeps the rain and sun off of you, but the quality is lacking. The handle for the case broke the third time I used it and I was not rough on it. The bottom of the case is coming unstitched. The problem is that it just uses single needle stitching all over and that will just not hold up. There are no reinforcements, nor double or triple stitching. The other problem is that the metal is cheap and soft and after only one year the screw that holds it up stripped the metal it goes through. So now I've had to drill through the lower pole and use a bolt and wing nut combo to hold it up, which works, but you can never adjust the height once this problem has occurred (and it will). 3 of 4 people I've spoken with have had this happen to them and for the 4th, it's just a matter of time. I've only had mine one year and already it happened. This product is made for profit, not for quality. I'd recommend that you look around for an alternative if you like quality products that will last a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TAR Excellent choice
Easy to set up. Serves as a great wind break or a shelter from those rain clouds that decide to open up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sigman Pack Love it!
Took it to the soccer game and it is great under the hot CA sun! The only thing is that is does get a little hot in there when you don't open the little vent windows. Otherwise we love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jon G Very flimsy
The grommets to hold the fabric to the frame are of very cheap plastic so they break very easily. I cannot use this item anymore so I would suggest you not buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by soccermom won't buy again...
It provides a great deal of shade but as other's have stated the bolt threads and the whole umbrella becomes useless. We, along with several other families, used this umbrella for soccer and each family had the same issue with the bolt. It's a waste of money if you use it regularly.

With 2 boys in travel sports I spend all day during the weekends at sport fields and sun screen can only go so far. This easy to use umbrella gives me quick shade any where I want. It's light weight and easy to place in the ground and set up.

my wife and I used to spend 3 hours on the beach, now we can spend the whole day under the cover of the Sport-Brella in comfort and protection from the sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JR This is THE umbrella for the beach!
We bought this umbrella to use at the beach at Nags Head, NC. It is heavy and sturdy enough to handle great in the wind. It needs to come with 6-8 wide stakes for sand anchoring. We started using it for soccer match and family activities. This really is a very good product for the money. A lot of friends has asked where to get this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scucchiara Perfect for the beach
We bought this to take to the beach (Florida) to help protect our small children from the sun. It was perfect. We bought 15" tent stakes to ensure it did not blow away, and it worked out perfect. We used it on its side and as an umbrella and had no issues. It was easy to transport, set up and take down. I would highly recommend.
