What users are saying
“I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and ease of assembly! Great quality umbrella for the price!!” Amazon.com
“I give these five stars overall mostly based on BCP’s great service, a price that is unbeatable and quality that is above what I expected for the price” Best Choice Products
“I absolutely love how gorgeous this umbrella looks. I am currently waiting on the base that I ordered so I can move it around my backyard. It matches my chairs perfectly. Very happy with my purchase.” Walmart.com
“Loved the umbrella and loved the price. However, after a couple of months on my deck, the color was faded beyond recognition. Beware that you must contact the seller within 90 days of purchase, or all you will get is an apology and the explanation that they wouldn’t have expected that to happen.” Amazon.com
“The umbrella broke within the first day of using it. It cannot withstand any wind whatsoever.” Best Choice Products
“I first bought 2 units (the orange). They broke at the neck (the tilt area) during a storm. So, I thought it was the storm that caused the problem. I bought another 2 (the lemon). One broke the same day I installed it… again, at the neck (the tilt area). This time there was no storm! This part of the umbrella is made of very poor material that cannot withstand the weight of the umbrella canopy. It’s quite embarrassing to have this happening with customers. The umbrella looks good when you unboxed it, but it didn’t leave up to its good looks. I really think the tilt was an error in design.” Walmart.com
It is a well-made patio umbrella ideal for use in places that don’t have strong winds. Additionally, it needs great care to avoid breakages. However, considering it goes for less than $50, this Best Choice Products umbrella is worth every penny you spend on it and will add beauty and charm, thanks to the bold colors.
An ideal choice of a stand is Best Choice Products 81lb Heavy Duty Concrete Umbrella Base Stand w/ Wheels. It will help stabilize it.
