Rated 1 out of 5Â by tlp1001 Terrible, pole breaks very easily
We have gone through two of these umbrellas already in less than three years. The pols has bent and snapped in half both times with minimal wind. Poorly designed

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DB103 Good outdoor accessory
The umbrella is large, fairly sturdy, takes more effort to operate the crank than it should.

Very easy to assemble out of box, and very attractive....however, the top of the umbrella, which includes the crank to put umbrella up and down, is way too heavy for the bottom piece. We had our umbrella about 3 months and, due to the sun/shade patterns on our deck, kept the umbrella up and tilted the last 3-4 wks. we had it. In the middle of the night (I witnessed what happened) a VERY LIGHT breeze bent the bottom piece to a 45 degree angle. Tried to replace the bottom piece but then just decided to return the umbrella, determining that the problem would most likely occur again.The bottom piece needs to be substantially stronger than it is to support the weight of the top of the umbrella when umbrella is up. If you put the umbrella down when not in use the bottom would most likely last longer, but can't be certain of that. IF the bottom piece were re-engineered for strength, we would purchase this product again. We did get what we felt was enough shade, tilt, and ease of use from the product. It is also aesthetically nice.

Was a great umbrella until it got pretty windy one day when I was at work and came home to find it had blown over and the metal pole was sheered right in half. Recommend putting it down after every use.

After one good wind with the umbrella folded down, the post bent. Then after another good breeze the pole snapped. For almost costing $200 you would think then would not come with cheap post.
