6.8 oz - 193 g Trekking Umbrella
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!

I haven't used it yet, but mounted the umbrella to two different backpacks of mine, using two different hands-free umbrella clips & cords. The systems should work good, as long as you keep it up high enough on your shoulder strap, so the umbrella stays up high enough off your head, not to impead your sights, nor the top of your pack.
The Silver Shadow Carbon umbrella is so rad! Lightweight, but feels super solid, quality parts, simple design. The handle foam sure is nice in 36° Washington rain with no gloves, felt good on the hand. And I like the visibility of the silver...I've never bought an umbrella in my life but I'd buy this one for friends/family as well as myself.
I just recieved it so I havent gotten to try it out but it seems pretty sturdy
I love it! Good for sun and rain. I had to replace my first one when someone crushed it and broke one of its spine.
The lightness feels very unusual, like holding a straw over my shoulder. Looks good. Very basic by necessity for weight and durability except, of course, for the carbon fiber frame EVA handle and tip. Don't know what the canopy is made of but it is quite light.
Haven't been on trail with it. Should have an opportunity to use it around town now that Fall is here if I can remember. Durability test starts in mid Nov-Dec and hopefully continue a long time. I can give it five stars after some use.
