Helinox Umbrella Two features:
Both models feature comfortable foam grip and strap, UPF 25 sun protection (blocks 96% of UV radiation) and the super strength of advanced DAC alloy in the shaft.
These umbrellas are one piece and not folding like other "trekking" umbrellas. We found on field testing that folding umbrellas are more compact for stowage but the added complexity reduces the robustness. We believe that first things must work reliably and we recommend the solid shaft umbrella where reliability is the prime consideration.
Solid shaft umbrellas are usually secured to the outside of the pack.
