Our Take on the “Sport-Brella” Beach Umbrella

Before this review gets long-winded, I’ll start off by saying that this is a wonderful product, especially for the price, but you have to be aware of the wind in order to have a good time.

When you look online at the reviews for the Sport-Brella, you’ll see an outstanding number of glowing reviews, with the 1-star ones sprinkled in here and there. The main problem that people have is that the umbrella catches wind easily, and doesn’t deal with it very well. The truth is, this is a massive umbrella, and all umbrellas are capable of failing due to being in the wrong direction. Even with just a small breeze, if not angled properly, this umbrella will cause some problems. Moral of the story, always take the wind into consideration before plopping this bad-boy down.

Another thing to note is that this umbrella can’t be used in the same way that regular umbrellas work. This one is meant to be stuck into the sand instead of a metal stand, and the sand helps with the pressure since it’s not a heavily built umbrella. I think many owners would agree that this is the best beach umbrella for wind, hands down.

The Pros

The Cons

In conclusion, this umbrella really is a no-brainer decision. Sure it has it downsides, but you aren’t going to find anything else that is comparable at this price range. It held up to some decent winds and even some rain, so I highly recommend this umbrella if you are in the market for a new one.
