Protect yourself from the beaming sun with this UPF 50+ umbrella. The hot sun will reflect off the top of the canopy and keep you well shielded. The vents in the umbrella will also protect you from the wind. The slots allow the wind to flow through it and prevent your umbrella from getting ripped or blown inside out. The auto open and close feature on the handle makes it easier to extend and retract, especially when getting in and out of a car.
