The silver reflective material has a brightening effect, great for low light situations. The product is available in various sizes to direct your light as needed. This umbrella is great for in studio and on location photo shoots.

Okay, so I got a comment asking about the seller, looked at my past invoices an the low quality one was sold by a company called ACM Global, the original one (the good one) was sold and fulfilled by amazon. Check this before you buy this umbrella, you will want to purchase the amazon one.
My original review:
I purchased two of these umbrella's and I purchased them about 8 months apart. The first umbrella I bought about 8 months ago was very high quality and was almost completely opaque with virtually no light escaping the back of the umbrella when the flash lit up, the reflective material was uniform and did not peel off when opening the umbrella, the overall quality of the umbrella was very high.
Fast forward to earlier this month, I needed another umbrella so I just ordered another one figuring I would receive the same umbrella, I did not recieve the same umbrella. It's the same color and size, but the built quality is horrible. The reflective material peeled off of the fabric the first time I opened the umbrella, the umbrella is semi transparent as well and much more light escapes from the back. The quality of the metal is thinner and weaker. I'm not sure where cowboy studio purchases their umbrellas to resell, but they had better go back to the old vendor because these new umbrellas are bad. I doubt this new one will last more than a half dozen shoots before the reflective material is falling to the ground.
I had been considering going with a much more expensive parabolic system, and had been looking carefully at their design. Surprisingly, this appears to be a very close clone (in a smaller diameter) of the Westcott parabolic umbrella.
Nearly everything is made in China these days, so the usual cautions apply: If you get a good one, it is good, however you never know which factory any particular batch of product comes from. The two that I received are excellent quality, sixteen fiberglass ribs and a metal shaft. The exposed ends of the ribs each have a rounded metal tip that provides an anchor point for the fabric and also prevents harsh edges from the fiberglass ribs. Very smooth and classy. I have not spent any time with these yet, but they give the feeling of something that will last.
