8.9 oz - 252 g Trekking Sun Umbrella
Redesigned for 2019 we have expanded the Silver Shadow into a line of umbrellas in order to offer a variety of options and prices.
Walking across deserts in the blazing sun or through summer rain showers shouldn't be a misery. The Silver Shadow Series provides a large reflective surface on top to deflect sunlight and a black underside to absorb wandering rays, allowing you to walk cooler and better protected. Its coating sheds water easily, eliminating the need to wear sweaty rain gear.
The base Silver Shadow most resembles our original design. Its rigid, fiberglass shaft insures that it won't unexpectedly collapse, and its simple construction ensures years of trouble free use. The simple design with minimal parts keeps it light and durable. There's simply fewer things to break or malfunction.
Wherever you travel, a Silver Shadow should be part of your kit!

It is so lightweight, I was very surprised. It does feel pretty sturdy. We are hiking the Florida Trail this January, and being in the hot sun all day will be easier now with the umbrella!
I have to walk all over the city for work, full sun, 80°-110° in all black. I have this umbrella with me every day, and it is so light I never notice it until I need it. It's really good at blocking the sun and giving me shade. Great in the rain too, And I don't worry about it breaking in a strong wind because of how the arms fold outward. Can't wait to use it in the snow this winter too.
I love the umbrella, that’s why I bought one for my pregnant daughter. She recently received a tube that had the hands free kit, along with the end of the tube missing, but no umbrella. It is frustrating that’s all she got.
I got this to use when sitting on my outdoor glider and am happy with how it's working so far. The foam handle felt odd at first but has been fine. It's nice to have such a light-weight "aimable" piece of sun protection that I don't have to wear (i.e. my head can still enjoy the breeze, unlike in a hat).
Better than a hat and leaves my friends jellous of the shade. Stay cool by being cool. Send me free stuff please.
