This 9' umbrella is huge! 5/29/2015Redrider72 from Long Beach, CA
Best for a large open space. I thought I could use it but it is too big for where I wanted it and it will be given away as a gift. I paid $35 but it is worth more than that. It has a string pull down to open it which seems a little flimsy. I would not recommend this umbrella in any wind over a breeze. It is sturdy but not that sturdy. It comes in 3 pieces: The umbrella, the base pole and a small wood pediment for the top. The off-white color is pleasing. A good buy overall.
This umbrella is gorgeous. Well made, heavy and much bigger than I expected.
