6.8 oz - 193 g Trekking 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 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!

Took this with me for day hikes in the Swiss Alps. The amazing lightness for its size meant this was more comfortable than any other umbrella. Your hand/arm simply doesn’t get tired like with a regular umbrella. Plus the opening mechanism is so simple and reliable. Love it!
It’s so light that a friend was able to hold it without my hands free option the whole time trudging up a hot and very steep 3mile Southern California trail. She is going to buy one too and so are several people who saw us on the trail. We like the fact that we don’t have to wear hot and sweaty hats. Here’s a pic of my husband who ordered one too.
Purchased Silver Shadow Carbon Trekking Umbrella through Amazon prior to a thru-hike on the Oregon Desert Trail, and shortly after I began to use it, the threading began to warp to a point that the issue became unavoidable. I called them, explained the situation, sent them photos, and they sent me a new one almost immediately! I believe that this incident was isolated as I have met many people while thru-hiking who are faithful to this product (I am still grateful for the quality of their customer service).
I have used this umbrella a couple of times and it kept me cooler. I like the light weight and the "hands free" kit works well. My initial umbrella arrived with a small tear. The company stood behind their product and sent me a replacement. Good people!
I used it on a 5 day rafting trip and it was great. I had it strapped to my pfd, the hands free straps didn’t work that well but a voile strap with the straps worked great.
Definitely saved me from the sun in 100 degree temps and it was nice having a mini umbrella that was easy to stash during rapids.
