Portable 5.5' Beach Umbrella
Here comes the shade.
No shade, no problem—this portable umbrella is a pro at blocking out UV rays. It’s made from trusty polyester and measures up at 5 1/2 feet across. And thanks to the handy spike on the bottom, it’ll dig right into sand or grass in a snap. There’s even a tilting feature that lets you point it every which way (perfect for when the sun is on the move). The kicker: It has a two-piece pole design that lets it pop into the carry-friendly case when it’s done doling out the shade. Now, if you need us, we’ll be stirring up a few summery drinks.
