Redesigned for 2019 we have expanded the Silver Shadow into a line of umbrellas that offers 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 Silver Shadow Carbon is the crown jewel of hiking umbrellas. A sleek, carbon fiber shaft, spreader, and ribs drop the weight of this umbrella to a mere 6.8 oz while maintaining full coverage. Its rigid 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 are simply fewer things to break or malfunction.
Wherever you travel, a Silver Shadow should be part of your kit!
Love this umbrella! Carbon frame holds up well in high winds. The silver coating and black underside do well in keeping sun and heat away. Still having trouble rigging it to my backpack's shoulder straps. I need to come up with a better system.
solid feel, nice and light
Took this umbrella on a day hike on a very rainy day at Wissahickon Park in PA. In 92 degree very humid conditions. A rain suit would have been disastrous. The umbrella attached to my pack with the shock cords and off I went. Will never go back to hiking without my Six Moons Umbrella!
We absolutely loved our Six Moon Designs Silver Shadow umbrellas. I purchased two umbrellas for a four day deserted island backpack trip. I chose this specific umbrella because it is light and handles well in windy conditions. It fits well in the side pockets of our packs. The umbrella worked well while hiking in the hot sun and while at rest on the beaches. We strapped the umbrella to our trekking poles for shade on the beach.
Texas heat is no match for this little guy.
