Pros

  • Light
  • Small - easy to carry
  • Strong

Cons

  • Opening Requires Practice

Best Uses

    Comments about Euroschirm Light Trek Umbrella:

    I recommend the product, very well made. I bought the manual opening umbrella, the only issue i have with it is the access to the opening mechanism - some room for improvement there.

    If you can spend a little more, get the light trek with auto open/close.

    great 2-in-1 umbrella/parasol

    By sun_bunny

    from New York City, NY

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Euroschirm Light Trek Umbrella:

    I am a city dweller and walking is my primary mode of getting around: during the hot summer months this umbrella (I have the silver coated version, which I use primarily as a parasol) makes it much more pleasant to be outside in the midday heat and provides some protection for my sun-sensitive skin. I'd recommend a larger version for someone looking for sun protection in a non-urban environment, but for everyday city use this size is great. It fits easily in my purse and doesn't take up too much room on crowded sidewalks. Also works fine as a perfectly functional umbrella.

    Siezes up from sweat

    By snoshoovt

    from Vermont

    Pros

    • Stowed size
    • Sun Protection
    • Weight

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Euroschirm Light Trek Umbrella:

        I got one of these with the silver coating for trekking in Nepal. It worked wonderfully for sun protection, but after two weeks of rubbing against my sweaty neck and head, the shaft siezed up, apparently from internal corrosion, so that I could no longer open it. To their credit, Birdiepal sent me a new one, but after only a few hikes in New England, again rubbing against sweaty me, it has also siezed up. I've tried washing it but to no avail. The collapsible aluminum shaft just clearly is not suitable for use as a sun umbrella if you sweat since it's impossible not to touch it chugging up a mountain.I've ordered another, but this time a one-piece fiberglass shaft.

        Very Practical

        By Lightmonke

        from Washington, DC

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Euroschirm Light Trek Umbrella:

        I already owned a go-lite chrome dome, which is a great product. I got this parasol because it compacts down to a convenient size for daily carrying in my bag. I use it daily when I leave the office at lunchtime in the hot DC sun. Highly recommend. Especially like the mesh bag, which protects the silvery finish from wearing off from contact with other contents of my bag.

          Great attention to detail, like the breathable case that allows the umbrella to dry and the carabiner on the case.

          Absolutely great, well made umbrella that expands to a large size from such a small package! Extremely well made and durable. I just wish it had a strap on the handle. Otherwise it's the perfect umbrella!
