Canopy

Like all other umbrellas from Best Choice Products, it has a polyester canopy that comes in nine lovely solid colors. You can’t fail to get something that will perfectly complement your patio, garden, poolside, deck, lawn, or wherever you intend to use it.

Besides offering UV protection, according to the manufacturer, the canopy is water and fade resistant (will give you many colors of vibrance).

It is true that polyester is an excellent fabric that will resist chemicals, is strong, doesn’t stretch, dries fast, doesn’t crease much, or even extend, among other qualities.

However, expect it to fade quickly. Sunbrella or olefin would have performed much better. Also, you could expect better colorfastness from solution-dyed polyester.

Frame

The umbrella has a powder-coated aluminum frame with a 2-inch pole and 8 ribs and a steel cross base. The powder-coating will ensure that it doesn’t chip, peel chip, rust, or corrode.

As you know, aluminum is lightweight, doesn’t corrode or rust, withstands cold temperatures, among other properties.

However, the aluminum pole and arm are vulnerable to snapping when used in windy places. Snapping is one of the issues you may face. A steel frame would perform much better.

Features

This Best Choice Products umbrella has a crank mechanism for opening and closing it and a glide to tilt functionality where you squeeze and lift or lower the handle to any of the five locking positions

Also, it has an air vent (allows wind to escape as well as hot air from underneath the canopy area) and has a touch-fastening strap to hold the canopy whenever you close it securely.

What we liked most about this umbrella: the 360-degree rotation, where you can rotate it to any angle. To do so, step on a foot pedal with your feet and use your hands to turn the pole (umbrella).

Finally, we have an issue with the crank feature, i.e., its casing and shaft are not up to standards as they get damaged a lot more often.

Ideal weights

It would help if you had 4-panel bases or weights to help stabilize this cantilever patio umbrella, with compatible ones being Best Choice Products 4-Piece Cantilever Offset Patio Umbrella Stand Square Base Plate Set SKY587 or SKY3257 (grey or black)

The Best Choice Products 4-Piece Cantilever Offset Patio Umbrella Base Stand w/ Carry Handles (SKY5274) or any other compatible one will also work just fine.

Pricing

Going for only $129.99, this is a very affordable 10 ft cantilever umbrella with a 360-degree rotation feature and competes with other similar brands. While it is expensive than Tangkula and Klismos, it is cheaper than brands such as Abba Patio or Bumblr.

Our verdict

Best Choice Products 10ft 360-Degree Rotating Cantilever Offset Patio Umbrella w/ Tilt is a well-made, elegant looking, and affordable cantilever umbrella you should consider buying. You get a free thick fabric cover!

While there are issues of it snapping and the crank bursting or it fading, it is still a superb buy considering its price.

When not in use, during storms or overnight, close it and cover it to minimize fading and elongate its lifespan.
