8 aluminium spokes hold the canopy in place, providing support during breezier times, whilst keeping you protected. Assisting with stability is a dual-layer canopy.

Dual layers allow the wind to blow straight through and will meet little resistance, stopping the parasol from tipping over. It’s great for the UK as the weather can change in a moment.

A nice weighty canopy, 240g/m², giving you fantastic protection from UV rays and rainfall.

It makes a really relaxing sound when the rain lands on it. Another bonus about the canopy is that it’s made from polyester that has been treated to repel water.

The only flaw with this product is that you’ll have to buy the base separately.

  • Treated polyester
  • Blocks UV rays

It’s very easy to open and close as you simply just rotate the crank, this will move the ropes that are situated inside the actual pole itself.

There’s no need to worry about not liking the colour as you’re spoilt for choice with this product, it’s got 7 colours to choose from.

It features 6 support ribs on the underside of the canopy, allowing it to retain its shape for years to come and to also help prevent it from being damaged by strong winds.

Another great benefit when there are support ribs on the underside is the flex they allow.

If you have children playing and throwing balls at each other then you’ll be glad to hear that it will retain its shape and the ball will simply bounce off.

Moving is easy, as it weighs just 12kg. On the flip side, the light weight means you’ll probably need to invest in a base to keep it in place if strong winds are expected.

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Powder Coated Steel
  • Lightweight
  • Provides Shade
  • Big 3m canopy
  • Water resistant
  • Staightforward setup

Cons

  • Doesn’t tilt

CASART 3M Outdoor Parasol Umbrella with 24 LED Lights, Winding Crank and...
  • ❤EQUIPPED WITH LED LIGHTS: Our sun umbrella has 24 LED lights powered by solar panels, which can not only be used in the daytime, but also create a more romantic atmosphere for your garden at night.
  • ❤MULTIFUNCTIONAL UMBRELLA: The diameter of 3M at the top of the sun umbrella can block the strong sunlight for you and create a leisure environment. It can also alleviate the embarrassment brought by the sudden light rain.

Steel ribs support the canopy, there’s 8 in total, they are sturdy and provide a strong structure for it. You’ll feel comfortable being sat under it with this in mind.

It creates a really magical atmosphere when the lights are on at night.  They’re solar-powered so you’ll be happy knowing that there’s no environmental impact of having these running.

Also, there’s no need to worry about replacing the batteries.

It’s available in 4 different colours but my personal favourite is burgundy as it looks really elegant in any garden, especially once the lights get going.

With a simple design, you will have no issues opening and closing the parasol as it’s a handle crank.

Setting it up is also a breeze, there’s clear assembly instructions inside the box and take you through the process step by step (you could probably figure it out anyway as it’s that simple).

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Solar LED Lights
  • Lightweight
  • Multi use
  • Steel ribs
  • Water resistant
  • Simple instructions
  • Robust handle crank

Cons

  • Needs extra weights

A Pop-up gazebo with sides could be a better alternative for full protection against UV and rain
