This Blissun 9′ Outdoor Patio Umbrella with a fringe will give your patio or garden a perfect summer vibe. It comes in three lovely solid colors that you will like.
The easy to wash, 100% polyester canopy offers UV protection (but the SPF factor isn’t provided) and is water-proof.
Contrary to what Blissun says, it fades much faster than superior canopy fabrics Sunbrella, which is at the top of the food chain for outdoor umbrella canopies and olefin. Even solution-dyed polyester will outperform this canopy.
Finally, we also noted that the canopy fabric is light-weight.
Like most Blissun umbrellas, it has a rust-free, powder-coated aluminum frame (8 ribs and a pole with a 1.5-inch diameter). This aluminum is light-weight, durable, and doesn’t corrode or rust readily, and the powder-coating makes it even better.
However, we need to point out that the pole seems very flimsy and will not withstand high winds. A commercial-grade pole would do better or a strong one like steel.
Therefore, always close it when not in use, during storms or strong winds as the pole will warp or even break.
It has a push-button tilt feature to block the sun from various angles, while its opening or closing is down by a crank system.
The umbrella has a vent to allow wind to escape and vent heated air under the canopy. Otherwise, it would easily be blown away or heat up.
One essential and fundamental feature that Blissun needs to include is a strap for securing it once you close it.
This umbrella is very affordable and one of the best bargains you can make considering it is well-made and nice looking.
Suppose a fringed umbrella is what best puts forward your unique personality and taste. In that case, Blissun 9′ Outdoor Patio Umbrella with Fringe Push Button Tilt and Crank Garden Parasol is a well-made and great looking good pick.
All you need to know is that it will fade after some time and cannot withstand strong winds. However, considering the price, it is worth every penny you spend on it.
One important thing we need to stress on pairing it with the right umbrella base. Get a base that weighs at least 45 pounds for use with a table or 90 if used standalone to avoid topping as this can damage it, your table, or even other things nearby.
