Sport-Brella XL Beach Umbrella

From installation to insufficient sun coverage, beach umbrellas are a frustrating breed. The Sport-Brella XL Beach Umbrella makes up for most of these thanks to its sheer size, though its side panels play a role in this as well. It’s no bigger than a standard large beach umbrella when packed up in its included carrying case but unfurls to a width of 9 feet using steel ground stakes and tie-down cords that keep it steady in the wind. The fabric offers sun protection to FPS 50+ and two zippable side windows let in a bit of extra light if you feel it’s too dark inside.
