I love this beach umbrella so much. It feels so sturdy and is great quality. The fabric is nice and thick and the timber pole has a nice finish. The only downside is the dial you turn to loosen the hinge you so you can stand the umbrella up screws all the way off. This would be fine if you only had to unscrew it slightly, but to get it loose enough to move, you nearly have to screw it off. This becomes difficult when you're holding the top half of the umbrella with one hand and trying to screw the dial back on with the other (without dropping it in the sand)! Only a minor design flaw... but it is quite an annoying one!!
Other than that, I love it. It's so stylish I feel like the envy of everyone else on the beach every time I use it!
