Review Content Good sun shade This umbrella is easy to set-up, but def recommend a mallet for hard sand. I also wish the pole would collapse more because its a burden to carry with other beach stuff. The lower end of the pole comes off to pound into the sand, and the latch/locking hinge feature that attaches to the umbrella pole is really weak. If you try to force the umbrella into the ground (without detaching lower portion), the latch gives way and the pole falls in on itself, making it impossible to bury in hard sand. Probably better on the market, but this is a good value.
