As you all know its the blazing days of summer and the sun is HOT! With skin cancer on the rise more and more people are starting to get better at protecting themselves from the suns harsh rays. The people at SKLZ have created and SPF 50 giant umbrella, called the Sport-Brella, to aid us in shielding ourselves from the sun! We were sent a Sport-Brella to review:
It literally opens up just like a regular umbrella but the bottom telescopes out and has a spike that sticks into the ground (or sand) And there are ground stakes to use, both regualr and heavy duty. I use heavy duty because my ground is soft.
There are vents on each side that tie back for air flow. You can close them if you are using your umbrella in the rain at a soccer game for example. No rain here though!
We like to sit under the umbrella in fold chairs with our toddler because he won’ play on the water slide (wading pool at the bottom) and we also like that it provides some much needed shade. It comes in a handy carrying case, though its quite long, you can sling it over your shoulders with your chair. I ALWAYS wanted to be one of those lucky people at the beach that had an umbrella to block the shade and now I do! I love it!! A thousand thumbs up for ease of use and practicality on this one and an extra thumbs up for sun protection! It can be on the ground and staked in for extra protection to keep sand and rain out. It can also go upright too for a large overhead shade.
