ESSENTIAL PROTECTION FROM MOST COMMON THINGS THAT COME OUT OF THE SKY

Regardless of what camp you fall into, "It's the HEAT!" "No, It's the HUMIDITY!", there's no denying that relief from the direct rays of the sun is always a welcome, if not life-saving, treat. Same goes for a bit of help staying dry in wet, cooler environments where the risk of hypothermia increases the more saturated you get.

So, with your safety and madness-prevention in mind, we offer The Essential Backpacking Umbrella. It checks all your boxes regarding weight, protection, and strength in high winds. More and more, on just about any trail, you'll see that experienced backpackers have made umbrellas an indispensable part of their kits. We think ours will more than earn its place in yours.

Light and Packable
Super light, obviously! But also compact enough to be carried in/on your day pack for use when needed. No longer than most trekking poles…this is a must have for very hot climates where shade can be hard to come by!

Perfect Sunbrella Rain or Shine
The vents on this Essential Umbrella overlap enough that they won't leak but provide an escape for wind. I have rigged it so I can hike with it hands free. I rarely hike without my umbrella now as it is so effective, rain or shine.

works as expected!

It's an umbrella! It keeps the rain off, and it is very lightweight. It's been great during this record rainy season to keep strapped to my pack or by the door.
