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 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.

Super Light!

This thing is crazy light. Way lighter than expected. I haven’t had the chance to use it yet but the sizing is good and it appears to be rugged.

Perfect Sunbrella Rain or Shine

I've hiked in the desert with an ultralight sunbrella, where a ranger told me it's 20 degrees cooler than being in direct sunlight. I've hiked in a summer rain in the mountains with an ultralight sunbrella where it's too warm to wear rain gear. I thought the sunbrella I had was perfect except for one thing - it needed ridge vents to provide relief from being tugged in the wind. 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 use 4 clips lashed with Velcro straps to my backpack's shoulder strap in alternating opposing directions to provide lateral stability. The handle sticks down nicely into the mesh pocket on my shoulder strap to keep it from slipping down. I rarely hike without my umbrella now as it is so effective, rain or shine.
