What kind of Tommy Bahama 7' Beach Umbrella do you need?
What is the advantage of this Tommy Bahama 7' Beach Umbrella?
This 7 foot Tommy Bahama Beach Umbrella has an aluminum pole with fiberglass ribs. *Caution: Always use sunscreen lotion rated SPF 15 or higher in addition to using an umbrella. Monitor children regularly for sunburn. Sunlight does bounce off sand other reflective surfaces, so some amount of sunlight will reach you even if you are under an umbrella.
Customer reviewsNot windproof
We go to the beach every year for a week-long vacation. Umbrellas don't last forever, and it was time to replace one of our umbrellas this year. I chose this for 1 the built-in sand anchor 2 the tilt feature and 3 the adjustable pole height. We use the tilt feature when there's a wind. We discovered this umbrella is NOT windproof - it turned inside out and I needed help getting it to right itself. The ribs seem flimsy. We also used the adjustable pole height during times of stiff breezes. The built-in sand anchor is okay, but my husband prefers a separate plastic sand anchor. All in all, it's okay, but I'm not sure I would buy it again when I need to replace an umbrella.
