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!

I have to walk all over the city for work, full sun, 80°-110° in all black. I have this umbrella with me every day, and it is so light I never notice it until I need it. It's really good at blocking the sun and giving me shade. Great in the rain too, And I don't worry about it breaking in a strong wind because of how the arms fold outward. Can't wait to use it in the snow this winter too.

I love the umbrella, that’s why I bought one for my pregnant daughter. She recently received a tube that had the hands free kit, along with the end of the tube missing, but no umbrella. It is frustrating that’s all she got.

Nice light sun protection

I got this to use when sitting on my outdoor glider and am happy with how it's working so far. The foam handle felt odd at first but has been fine. It's nice to have such a light-weight "aimable" piece of sun protection that I don't have to wear (i.e. my head can still enjoy the breeze, unlike in a hat).

Great for desert hiking.

Better than a hat and leaves my friends jellous of the shade. Stay cool by being cool. Send me free stuff please.

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.
