Very nice looking umbrella. It goes nicely with the table I purchased a few weeks ago. It is a rectangle shape umbrella, not square. The material seems to hold up with the high winds we get around our house, so we will see how it holds up in the weather in the next few months. No instructions on how to tilt it, but once you figure it out it works great to angle it to shade the area. Doesn't come with a stand, so make sure you purchase one separately. It is a little awkward to lift in put in the hole for the table, but once in it looks sturdy.

It seems much smaller than what I was expecting. The pole is slightly larger that the umbrella I was replacing, which was also purchased from HD. I had to remove the compression insert from the base to get it to fit. The base was also previously purchased from HD. In the down position, the umbrella looks cheap and flimsy and there are no attached ties to wrap around the umbrella when it is down. This allows the wind to get under the umbrella when you have it down on windy days. I thought this was going to be similar to the Martha Stewart brand that I had previously purchase from HD. The quality and function is not even close.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vtfroggie Great rectangular umbrella!
We've had this umbrella up for a month now and it's great. The rectangular shape is great and covers our deck seating more fully than our round umbrella does. It can be easily opened and closed. With just a push of a button, the tilt feature is also easy to use. Given the height and the size, keep in mind that it does require a nice sturdy, heavy base.
The one downside, as others have mentioned, is it does not have an attached tie to bind it when the umbrella is closed. This is the case for all Hampton Bay umbrellas I've seen, so we knew ahead of time to get a small bungee cord to go with it. With the bungee cord, we've had no issues with it blowing open, even in very high winds.
I recall one review stating that it doesn't have the Sunbrella tag on it, so it must not be Sunbrella fabric. While I can attest to there being no Sunbrella tag on it (like there are on all of the sunbrella cushion covers I own), the Cilantro coloring is an exact match for my cushion covers (complete with the hints of white/light grey tightly woven in with the green). So I find it very hard to believe that the covering is not also made by Sunbrella.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yesdvt Makes my patio set look great
After reading reviews I was a little bit concerned about it being durable and not wobbly. The original assembly did prove to be a bit shaky however after minor improvements it is SOLID. I did put some filler at the end of the pole to make sure it stays firm in the base and added some electrical tape to where pole parts connect to eliminate shriek. We like it a lot. Pictures have been provided, look for yourself.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kel Light Weight, and Colorful and the best part...Rectangular!!
I love being able to lift the umbrella myself to install on the table when I want to, but I have a problem in that the large rectangular shape must make it not stay in place. Any small amount of wind, moves the rectangle sideways, making it not right over the rectangular table. I would have given this problem less stars, but I think it may be on my end that I need to find a way to secure the pole to the base better. Will check on my next trip into Home Depot. Hard to explain on the phone or online. With all this, it is still great as I love the colors they come in. I have the terracotta, and my daughter ordered the blue .
