This 9ft Blissun Patio Umbrella is an elegant and classic-looking umbrella with a wooden grain sticker on its aluminum frame. It has a shaded area of 57 sq. ft. enough for two pool loungers or a 42-54-inch patio table with 4-6 chairs.
Note that it is not made of wood but has a wood grain sticker. A lot of people confuse it with being wooden.

The powder-coated aluminum frame (ribs and pole) with a wood grain sticker looks elegant and stylish and will complement other wooden patio furniture or décor. Kindly note that it is not made of wood but has a wood-grained sticker.
Also, the frame is light-weight, doesn’t rust, corrode, chip, or peel. However, the pole very weak and cannot stand wind gusts. A commercial aluminum pole will do much better or one made from steel.
Blissun notes that the 100% polyester canopy in three solid colors is easy to clean, UV resistant, lasts long and is safe resistant.
However, from our experience, it did fade quickly instead of Sunbrella, olefin, or even solution-dyed umbrellas we have, and the fabric looked much light-weight thinner.
Finally, if you want a wide range of colors to pick from, it only comes in three colors, something many people will find limiting.
It has a vent to allow air to escape with it windy and help keep the area under the canopy cool (vents out hot air), a button-push tilt mechanism to help block the sun at different times a day, and a crank for opening and closing.
One crucial feature that this Blissun umbrella lacks is the canopy closure strap to help secure it in place when you close it.
Compared to other brands with similar features and made from the same material, this Blissun umbrella is reasonably priced.
Considering the price, looks, and quality, Blissun 9′ Patio Umbrella Outdoor Market Table Umbrella with Push Button Tilt and Crank, Wooden Sticker is a good buy.
However, beware that some of its plastic parts are fragile and always close it during strong winds or a storm as the pole will break or warp. If you in a place with strong winds, consider brands with fiberglass ribs and steel poles.
Finally, ensure you get the right base weight. We recommend buying a 90 pound or more stand for standalone use and at least 40 pounds if used with a patio umbrella table.
