What we liked
- The brilliant, eye-catchy canopy colors will add magic to your deck, patio, pool, garden, or wherever you will use it. Don’t worry about the fabric. It is good quality, waterproof, and fade-resistant 210g polyester with UV protection.
- The sturdy rust-resistant powder finish coated aluminum pole with a larger diameter and strong ribs for extra strength and durability. It will hold on well even in wind gusts so long as you have the right base weight.
- The crank system and push-button tilt make opening or closing and tilting to remain under the shade at different times of the day a breeze.
- This BCP umbrella is easy to assemble. Just follow the assembly instructions provided.
- Inferior colorfastness, i.e., it fades after a short time.
- Some users have complained that it isn’t waterproof.
- This Best Choice Products patio umbrella doesn’t come with a closure strap to tie it well when you are not using it.
What are users saying?
“I ordered this umbrella then decided to cancel shortly after as my mom picked one up a little cheaper locally. The seller was great to communicate but unfortunately could not cancel but offered me a solution to refuse the package. I decided to return the other and avoid the hassle. I am so glad I did as this umbrella is much bigger, much nicer, and we love it! Everyone that comes over comments on the size and quality. It easily covers the six chairs and the people sitting in them, even scooted away from the table. It’s perfect and a great price!!!” Amazon.com
“This is the second umbrella I have bought from Best Choice Products. I loved the first one so much that I decided to purchase it again. I have them over the two pergola’s I have on my deck. I don’t have to worry about the wind blowing them over. Just to be safe, I also sprayed them with Atsko Silicone Water-Guard.” Best Choice Products
“Fantastic umbrella for the price. Easy crank system and provides plenty of coverage. The red is a darker red, but very pretty. I cut a piece of fabric ribbon to keep it closed (it doesn’t come with a strap). Absolutely love it… for the price, it is perfect for replacing every couple of years once it fades out. Very happy with purchase!!!” Walmart.com
This is a great structural umbrella, but the red faded almost immediately. The red has lines beached out at the perimeter edge and estimate that 20% of the overall color has bleached out. Of course, it is past the return window, but this is a durability issue. I hesitated to buy red because of fading that happens, but this umbrella said fade resistance. I would agree but only a week or two fade resistance. Amazon.com
Gorgeous umbrella. But the top screw that holds the umbrella to the pole snapped after a week, and the umbrella nearly flew away—needed to buy a massive base for the umbrella (88lb). Keep in mind that this is a huge umbrella and needs something heavy to keep it from blowing away. Walmart.com
“This is not what I expected, wanted, or needed. It was/is much taller than expected, and the diameter of the pole is larger than the opening in any of our  tables. I don’t think we will use this product or this ‘service’ again.” Best Choice Products
If you want a large shade area, this Best Choice Products 8x11ft Rectangular Market Patio Umbrella will offer you that. It is sturdy (will stand strong in wind gusts), is very affordable, and great looking. However, ensure you get a larger base if you intend to use it standalone, something like 100 pounds and above.
We suppose you intend to use it through a table. In that case, ideal weights will be Best Choice Products 55lb Round Wicker Style Patio Umbrella Stand w/ Blackened Bronze Finish and Best Choice Products 50lb Round Heavy-Duty Cast Iron Rustic Patio Umbrella Base Stand. On the other hand, if you prefer one with wheels, go for Best Choice Products 81lb. Heavy Duty Concrete Umbrella Base Stand w/ Wheels.
