We're Canadians who love the beaches of Florida, and spend 2 months in the winter and 2 months in the summer on two different, but very windy beaches on the Atlantic side. We were tired of our various beach umbrellas, no matter how expensive, turning inside out on windy days. We noticed that the Sport-Brellas on the beach near Daytona never blew away nor turned inside out, and protected people from the cold northern wind that blows across the beaches in the winter months. We ordered the Sport-Brella on line and it arrived before its projected time. As soon as we opened it, we could see that it was very well constructed. The tips of the umbrella are sewn/fastened down well (they will NOT slip off, like with other beach umbrellas.) The pegs for the sand are metal and sturdy; the adjustable ropes are thick enough. We love everything about this umbrella except that the pole is narrow and thus doesn't fit our metal "sand grabber" properly. However, we have found that we don't need to use the "sand grabber" because the 3 ropes hold the umbrella down just fine. We especially like using the umbrella down on the sand like a tent or "cabana" ...as we can sit under it and feel toasty warm because the Sport -Brella keeps the wind off of us completely. It has a 50+ SPF. We should have bought on of these years ago!
