6.8 oz - 193 g Trekking Sun 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 Mini is the collapsible, compact umbrella in our line. Packing to 40% the length of our other umbrellas, it is ideal for travel or when space is paramount.
Wherever you travel, a Silver Shadow should be part of your kit!

I haven’t used this umbrella for it’s intended purpose yet, but it’s a great design for a full coverage umbrella in a small package that would basically fit in your pocket. This one will go with me on a plane to France for another go on the Camino de Santiago next Spring. I also have the big brother to the mini, and while I like it’s weight, color, and size, I don’t want to have to deal with it on an airplane. But I’m expecting a long relationship with both. Thanks Six Moon Designs.
Love the mini Silver Shadow! Folds up very small, is super lightweight, and definitely beats the heat (I attach it to my camp chair as well and it's consistently a few degrees cooler underneath in direct sunlight)
I thought that using an umbrella while hiking was ridiculous....until I used this one. I spent three days doing day hikes in the canyons at Death Valley National Park. This umbrella saved me! The shade on my head allowed me to not wear a hat, and it was much cooler. Two weeks later when I returned to the Seattle area, I was hiking in the rain. The umbrella turned a miserable wet hike into a pleasant stroll in the forest. It is ultralight and folds to a very compact size. I will be carrying it in my day pack from now on.
Really like it. Worth the money
Very light, and packs very small, yet opens to be surprisingly large.
