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!

    Son back from Philmont OAHA "It was the best piece of equipment I took"

    My son, Ben, went to Philmont Scout Ranch for a program where they build a trail for a week and then get to go where ever they want for a week (OAHA). I bought the umbrella for him. Ben took it with him having doubts he would use it. At 16 years old he has over 350 miles backpacking so he knows his gear. Once on the hiking portion of the trip he would break it out when needed. He said he never had to put on his rain pants. The adults in Troops that they passed asked about the umbrella. Ben let everyone know it was a Six Moon Umbrella. Many of the adults were impressed and said they would look into it when they returned. Sad part of the story is that on the last day backpacking, while they were off trail, he had to jump down a good distance. He held the umbrella in one hand. Of course, landed on that hand and broke the main tube. The umbrella remained somewhat usable as the group went on some really cool tours around the Ranch House. When at the petroglyphs a guy in the group who was 6'3'' held the umbrella up high so it covered a bunch of them. I wonder if you might approach Philmont about carrying the umbrella in their store.

    Silver Shadow Umbrella

    Excellent product, being the winter, I will only use it if is raining. But I am looking forward to using it this summer, especially on those hikes in the blazing sun. The umbrella is an excellent build, and looks to be very sturdy. I bought this umbrella based on the multiple excellent reviews. I will update this review once I start using it. Take care.

    You might end up using this more than you expect.

    Very satisfied with this umbrella. I originally used them on a longer trek with friends where the umbrella saw itself getting passed around when there wasn't any sun protection. It started raining and I was reminded of how nice an umbrella can compliment your existing rain gear. these have since seen use during other hikes, car camping trips, and bike packing excursions. definitely a luxury item worth its weight in whatever currency we use for these comparisons nowadays. I'm such a believer I ended up gifting two this year to fellow outdoors-people!
