Great for Infants. Awesome buy!, September 1, 2012
By 
Carolyn (Beachwood, New jersey) –

I am extremely active on Amazon. I go on this site before I buy anything and read customer reviews, especially when it comes to my 3 month old daughter. I did not take her to the beach all summer as I was worried about sunburn and other things. I really tried to listen to our doctor. And we live at the Jersey Shore!

But this past weekend my husband’s family was visiting Long Beach Island from Colorado and Maryland and we knew that we needed to take Madison (our daughter) to the beach for the first time. I searched and searched for the perfect tent to bring with us. I found one that I wanted to buy, unfortunately no store sold it. I could only get it on Amazon. Before buying it, I chatted with a friend who said she would never buy a tent as they get hot. In considering her advice I started to look for an umbrella. I came across the Sport-Brella and could not be happier.

First of all, I bought it at Home Depot for $40. When we went down to the beach the wind was crazy. All of us thought, “There is no way this umbrella is going to hold up.” The other umbrellas on the beach were flying by us while we were setting it up. We put all of the stakes in and pushed a little bit of sand on the sides. For hours, this umbrella did not move. Not at all. I can honestly say we were shocked and impressed. We opened the windows so a little of the breeze came inside. Other than that, if you stepped under the umbrella there was no wind inside at all. We set up my daughter’s bouncer and a towel for her to lie on. She loved it. No wind, no sunburn.

We got the smaller version of the tent because I did not want something that could only fit in my SUV. It was the perfect size. With Madison’s stuff, I could still fit in there with a chair and room to spare. I felt that it also offered privacy as I did nurse her at one point underneath it.

This product was so great that we plan to purchase another one at Home Depot before the season ends. I cannot rave enough about it!

Great for the beach or when you need shade / wind break, March 28, 2011
By 
goldenrool (Lake Mary, FL USA) –

I have had the Sport-Brella for almost a year now. I purchased it for taking to the beach and highly recommend it as a very effective shade and wind break within limitations. It is a fairly well thought out product. However, the photographs are little misleading when they show a soccer team under it. That is either for a larger size (it can be found in a 9 foot diameter but costs almost twice as much as the 8 footer) or a lot of small people squeezed together. My experience is that this is just about ideal for two adults. Can you cram more…well yes, but don’t think you would enjoy the experience. Think about a half dozen or more perspiring people packed closely together and I think you get the idea. I don’t know how effective it would be for rain cover since never used it for that purpose but suppose it would be better than nothing.

Pros:
– Highly portable. Comes with a nylon carry bag with shoulder strap.
– Quick to set up and break down. The pole is two piece (self contained) with the lower section reinforced at the top for hammering. Set the lower pole, attach the umbrella. Voila, instant cover. Take down is just as simple. Release/lower the umbrella, secure with velcro strap, slide the lower pole section into the upper pole, insert into the carry case and you are ready to go. If you do not need to stake the umbrella, two minutes or less. It’s that simple.
– If you want to extend the cover, there are two side panels / wings (normally attached via a clip to the umbrella) which can be extended outward from umbrella.
– There are multiple straps with grommets that can be used to secure the Sport Brella if it is windy. Metal stakes are included in a small nylon bag.
– There two panels built into the umbrella that can be lowered (double zippered) to help control airflow. There are ties stiched into umbrella to secure the panels to minimize flapping if the panels are lowered.
– There is a velcro strap that secures the umbrella to ease stowing in the carrying bag.

Cons:
– When not using the two panels that function as extended cover, the only way to secure is via the clip on the top of the umbrella that hooks into a grommet on the end of each panel. This creates a problem if you are using it strictly as an upright umbrella for shade (say at midday) and it is breezy but not enough to require staking. The panels create more surface area for the wind to get under. Yes, they include some braided nylon guy lines that you can use to stake but why bother if not needed. A better solution would be additional ties attached to the umbrella like the ones to secure the zippered panels.
– Durability is questionable. An umbrella has a lot of moving parts, stretching/flexing and prone to break. Compound that with wind on a beach and salt air. It is a matter of trade-offs. High portability equals low weight construction. High durability equals heavier construction. Mine is still hanging together but would be surprised if it will last more than two seasons of moderate use. Still, for the convenience and usability provided, I have no complaints and would not think twice about replacing unless something better came along.
– Small complaint – the shoulder strap on the carry case is a thin narrow nylon material. It is uncomfortable and awkward to carry on the shoulder (at least for me). It is too long if you want to carry by hand. I have tied it into a knot to shorten.

To wrap this up, if you want a highly portable and effective sun shade / wind break for the beach for two adults, the Sport Brella is worth your consideration. It is quick to set up / break down. I like mine enough to say that I will buy another when this one wears out.

Baseball Mom lifesaver!, June 20, 2010

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
My son plays Little League in the Pacific Northwest. This means a LOT of wet, windy & cold games. I am also the scorekeeper and it is a nightmare trying to keep the book dry.
I bought the sportbrella at the beginning of the season and it was one of my best purchases. I love the easy set up and the fact that two people can easily sit in it. The wind does want to carry it away but I was able to get around that by attaching the pole to my chair!
I also bought a big buddy heater and the sportbrella did a great job of trapping the heat. My pitch counter and I were two spoiled moms!
I never had a problem with it leaking. The only time we got a little wet was when the rain started going sideways and blew in at us.
By the middle of the season these babies were popping up all over!

I LOVE that it is so easy to set up!
I LOVE that it fits two people!
I LOVE that it traps the heat from a heater!
I LOVE that it is so portable!
I LOVE that it is well made and shows no sign of wear after a long NW baseball season.
