By Daniel Czarniak on May 28, 2007
I live in Atlanta. There are plenty of hotter places, but the sun can be pretty oppressive here a good bit.

About 10 years ago I took a trip to Thailand. Do you know how hot it is there ? It's crazy. We were there in November and it was in the 90s the whole time.

I learned a lot from watching the people there and how they handled the sun and heat.

Sun umbrellas were everwhere. They generally use smaller ones with fairly short handles - for sake of convenience, I suppose.

Ever since then, I have used an umbrella when I have been out in the sun for any substantial period of time.

Until these Sunblok ones came along, I used regular golf umbrellas. The Sunblok umbrella beats any regular umbrella by a mile. (A regular umbrella still lets a lot of sun through).

Yesterday I went to a little neighborhood pool get-together. I walked there with the umbrella. When I was there, maybe 5 ladies asked me about it, where to get it, how much, etc.

Oh - and I'm a guy. I have been been heckled about it a few times by other guys. I just tell them that I am fortunate to have enough confidence in my masculinity to not worry about it. That pretty much ends the conversation.

Anyway, buy one and use it.

It will change your view of days during which the sun can be oppressive. You will be freed from your oppression.

I ordered this umbrella with free shipping last week and it arrived by US Mail just three days later, delivered intact in a reasonably stout triangle tube box. Seems substantial and well built with a firm rubber grip and a few plastic parts. Exterior is a very reflective silver coated fabric and the underside (not apparent in the Amazon site product photos) is black. Appears to be the same Gustbuster umbrella sold as the UV blocker. Literature that came with this umbrella claims it cuts out 95% of UV light. My copy is about 50 inches at its widest point to point diameter--not as advertised, but entirely adequate for rain or hot sun. Ought to last a very long time if well cared for. It opens and closes easily in a sort of robust fashion and is easily secured with its attached velcro straps and the separate black fabric sheath.

It has been a very hot July in SW Montana this year--just above or below 100 degrees every day. The daily walk of several miles along county roads to the post offce was becoming a physical ordeal--the return leg in the hot sun leaving me simply sapped. As a matter of physics, a reflective umbrella seemed like a good idea after experimenting with my old oversize rain umbrella. More than the hot air and heat reflecting up from the ground, it is the direct solar imput falling on head and all that threatens to reduce one to a grease spot when out wandering too long in savagely hot days. Reflecting most of those maddening photons back into space to deliver their energy elswhere seemed a remarkably simple and useful solution.

Well, this Gustbuster silver umbrella works great, as if carrying your own efficient little shade tree and blocking all the heating rays regardless the intensity of the sun. All in all, I'm very satisfied with this umbrella, both as a rain and sun shield. Does unsettle the horses along the way.

This umbrella works really well and it does actually make you feel cooler when you are out in the heat. The only problem is that it isn't exactly convenient to carry a large umbrella with you to all the places you might be hot. It would be great if you were going somewhere where you were planning on being in one place for an extended period.

It is very well made. This is a manual open and close umbrella. I haven't had a chance to test it in dramatic winds yet. I will update if I have the opportunity.

UPDATE: I have had a chance to use this in pretty strong winds and it didn't even flinch. There is one caveat that I would provide however. Because this umbrella stays strong in wind that means that those same strong winds can pull upward on the umbrella. Since the handle is simply a straight vertical handle (as opposed to the classic J shape) you need to hold on to it really tightly or the entire umbrella will be pulled out of your hands.

Like most others, I bought this umbrella because the previous pathetic excuses for umbrellas that I once had could not withstand the high wind gusts and frequent sideways rains that occur in Eastern and Central Montana. I chose the SunBLOK because I'm not a big fan of heat, and sometimes shade is difficult to find when you need it.

It's a very good-sized umbrella, if you like a large one (which I do). I wanted an umbrella that could fit at least 3 adults within its span, or 1 adult and 3-4 kids. This umbrella manages those tasks quite well. During the hot months this last summer, it lived up to its claims of "10 degrees cooler" --- I often held it up for my Mom-in-law (who was going through chemo and could not have sun on her; another fantastic element of this umbrella that I hadn't even considered when buying it), and my Grampa-in-Law (the most outstanding 96 year-old gentleman I've had the honor of knowing), and it worked for all of us. Kept us much cooler, and definitely kept the sun *blocked*.

One word: This umbrella is *sturdy* and extremely well-built. Because of this, it's like a Suburban: HEAVY. Your arm muscles will notice, especially when holding it up for sun-blockage. An accessory that would be very useful would be (as my Mom-in-law & Grampa-in-law mentioned) a very sturdy clip of sorts so that one could attach it to the back of a chair, rather than need to hold it. I looked on the [..] website to see if such a thing was offered, and couldn't find one; I intend to search Amazon.com for one as well.

But that's the only gripe I have concerning this umbrella. I highly recommend it regardless, and am now buying another one for my Dad who suffers rosacea during the hot months in Arizona.
