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.

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.

Gives welcome respite from sun

Recently, took my Essential Umbrella trekking in Nepal. It turned out to be one of my better decisions given the heat at that time. Being able to get some shade on the trail was worth many times the cost of the umbrella.

Great umbrella!!

Looks great! This is a gift for a hiking buddy who frequently uses an umbrella in the rainy Pacific Northwest.

It's so incredibly light, I may just have to get one for myself!

Everything you need, sans the weight.

Tested this on a 2500 ft hike, in full sunlight and 100F. It worked perfectly and kept me cool.
