Having an umbrella that is lightweight and easy to carry is a must for busy moms and others on the go! I loved that I was able to choose this pretty Turquoise colored Crown Coast heavy duty umbrella for my review. The umbrella has other color choices and they are: black, blue, red, yellow,white, green and pink. Colors to fit everyone's preference. It measures 10.9 x 1.6 x 1.6 inches and opens to 39" wide open. It weighs just 10.6 ounces. Perfect for the glove box in your vehicle, purses, briefcases, diaper bags, boats, school bags and more.
The umbrella is nicely constructed and has been wind tunnel tested to withstand winds up to 60 miles an hour. If it's flipped inside out, it will bounce back to it's original shape.
Kathleen and Hayley model how it easily covers both of them. :-)
There is an automatic button on the handle that allows you to both open and close the umbrella canopy. Kathleen thought that was a pretty cool feature. :-)
The umbrella has a resilient flex, memory frame technology and non absorbent synthetic polymer that's water-repellent. Treated with anti-corrosion layer stainless steel frame so no rusting.
We thought we'd have a bit of fun with it and test how well it held up under large piles of leaves being thrown over top. ;-)
Jerry scooped up a large shovel full of leaves and threw it over top Kathleen, she was laughing and smiling through it all.
As you can see it held up just fine! Another great feature is Crown Coast offers a life time guarantee; if there were any problems it would be replaced or you will receive a refund. Can't beat that benefit and the company was great to work with and wonderful about answering any questions and providing helpful information about their product.
It's a great umbrella and I already have it stored in my purse to have on me at all times. It's the perfect size for travel and it would make a great gift for someone on your list this holiday season.
