I've used parasols everyday for sun protection for years and bought many different varieties from different vendors. This is the best quality of all the parasols I've ever bought. This parasol has very thick paper which is pretty opaque and keeps the sun out better. Thinner paper doesn't hold it's shape and wrinkles, which makes it harder to close neatly into a compact form, lets in too much light, and tears easily. This parasol is sturdy, but light (important if you have any carpal tunnel or tendonitis issues, plus general comfort). The size provides enough coverage while being maneuverable in city streets. The parasol is in a vibrant, true red with a stylish design that actually looks as good as the photo. The product exceeded my expectations, and customer service provided by Whitney was stellar. Highly recommended.
