Over the past 40 years we've owned umbrellas,shelters,and other canopies in 4 homes. This umbrella is not up to par. About 4 years ago we bought an 11 ft. market umbrella at Sams, at $100. That umbrella had a 1 7/8 " hardwood pole; heavyweight canvas top, umbrella ends screwed into leather wraps into pole ends. SUPER VALUE. This umbrella described as light wood market umbrella; thought "light" referred to wood color, not the fact that it felt (and sawed through - had to shorten) light featherweight pine. The 1 1/2 diameter of this soft wood can too easilly snap. The top material is also WAY lighter than the one purchased earlier. If this is what is available for $85 then highly recommend you trade up to a heavier weight top and a thicker pole. If we get 2 seasons out of this purchase we,ll be lucky. Good luck on your umbrella hunt.
