"HA true backpacking umbrella! Lightweight and durable. I am looking forward to testing it in the sun as well as the rain." - Brian

6.8 oz - 193 g Trekking Umbrella

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.

Redesigned for 2019 we have expanded the Silver Shadow into a line of umbrellas that offers a variety of options and prices. 

Flight 30 Ultra Backpack Materials


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!

175 g = 6.2 oz

I’m sure weights can vary by individual umbrella, but my umbrella weighs just 175 g.

I hike in the desert and the sun just wears you down. I am looking forward to using this in my next sections through the desert.

Super service!

I bought my Silver Shadow Carbon two years ago for a week-long hike in the Sierra. You'd think it's cool at 12,000 feet, but not in the full sun. I was the envy of every passing hiker. Since then I've used it frequently, and that includes (admittedly weird) riding my bike in the Arizona summer while clutching my trusty umbrella. (I have good balance.)
And when it lost an end-cap to one of the ribs where the fabric attaches, I emailed customer service and they immediately sent me a replacement. For free.

Thanks Ben!

This parasol/umbrella is outstanding. It couldn't be lighter or stronger, it won't attract lightning and it looks good!
