"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!

Great umbrella!!

The umbrella is sturdy but incredibly lightweight for those concerned with ounces! The handle is very comfortable and easier to hold on to when hiking in rain than the one I owned before. The fabric is sturdy and feels like it will hold up well! Very happy with this birthday gift for my daughter!

Just what I needed

I don’t wear hats unless absolutely necessary. This lightweight umbrella is perfect for me in rain AND especially shine. Made well and super light.

crazy light

I'll be getting this on trail this weekend but unboxing reveals a featherweight item. I attached it to my six moons backpack with the flight vest option without needing the hands free kit. I could see the hands free kit being essential in windy conditions but that's conjecture at this point. Quality looks to be superb. Here's what you DON'T want... to be on an exposed sunny trail just roasting and then lamenting not having this tool in your quiver. Don't make that mistake.

Crazy light.

I'm an umbrella fanatic and have decided to start bringing one on my backpacking trips. This umbrella is fantastic. So light. Because I have so many large umbrellas (and broad shoulders), I do find myself wishing the overall open width was larger, but the goal here was ultralight, so Six Moon Designs hit the right target. (37" is also consistent with every other ultralight umbrella in this segment.)

My first walk under it, in a drizzly mist and a Gamma LT softshell, found my arms collecting a good bit of droplets but that also isn't really the target weather for an umbrella on a hike either. So, I'm oddly excited we are going to see some heavy downpours this afternoon. ;)

Awesome service and awesome product

I had one of these get damaged in heavy rain and wind in Austria and wound up with it replaced because of damage. I used it every day last year during RAGBRAI and it gave me wonderful relief from the sun. Great product!
