Rated 4 out of 5 by oggiedog Nice umbrella, does the trick...
I like the umbrella. It does the job and is very functional. I would have given it 5 stars, but when you wind out the umbrella to begin the tilt, it seems that the umbrella want to not hold the position and unwinds just about 3 clicks from where you originally had it. It is NOT at full tilt, rather about 1/2 tilt. It is a little irritating that it wants to do it's own thing, but only a minor irritation. Overall, I do like this umbrella, it's great for what we need it to do.

The pole is heavy duty with a good crank. The cover looks like it will last a long time and is a wonderful soft off white. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flower0929 Beautiful and easy to put canvas on base!
Makes me wonder why I waited so long! I was concerned that I would need help "attaching" the canvas...I'm 64 and my hands aren't very strong. It was a breeze...took me less than 10 minutes. It is easy to crank and is heavy enough not to 'spin' when tilted. I may buy a second one...

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLeighBuckeye Great looking and easy to use
We bought this umbrella in the Kiwi stripe and it is a great shade of green, not super bright but really refreshing for summer. The umbrella was easy to put together and works really well. Only thing was we couldn't figure out how to make it tilt at first. A lot of umbrellas have a joint where you can push a button and adjust the angle but this one will tilt once it is fully opened. Just continue to crank the handle.

Boxes arrived on time and intact. Umbrella was packed well and box can be saved for off season storage. The umbrella color is exactly as pictured and nice heavy weight fabric. Includes ties to tie the umbrella down when closed to eliminate wind damage, don't even have to remove the umbrella from its deck sleeve. Bought two, and glad I did.

I looked for a long time and through many sites to find an umbrella that was turquoise and white striped, and sturdy. I found a bunch that were nice looking but not sturdy enough to last. Then my friend asked if I had checked Ballard Designs and BOOM, there was my dream umbrella, the right color, the right size, and I got to pick the frame! I ordered it and it came within a week. It's a really strong frame and the material for the canopy being Sunbrella is a big plus! Every time I open the canopy it makes me happy.

by pfm1416 So glad I bought it...you will be too!!!!
Love love this umbrella....I was skeptical when it arrived, as the package was so beat up, I was sure it would be a beat up mess. But it turned out to be fine, no damage...The fabric part went right on, although it did help to have a second person to help! It looks great and is sooo nice to have a crank umbrella. I had one for years i had to stand on a chair and try to manipulate...it was awful. This works like a breeze, just crank it either way...to tilt just keep cranking past open and it starts tilting. I got it during a sale, so that really helped; but its worth the price. Just get it, you will not be sorry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HotMoma Plenty of shade
The umbrella is easy to use and with the auto tilt feature you can follow the sun and keep yourself in the shade. One thing I would say is that it should come with some sort of instructions for the auto tilt feature. I found out by chance that the umbrella tilts quite far when you keep turning the handle past its resistance point. This is the reason for the four stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ccccccc deceiving
We purchased this umbrella to go with the Amalfi table. We had problems with the purchase of the table (no parts to put it together and no instructions). They sent the parts and instructions, but failed to send the umbrella insert. We had to call and have that sent as well. When we were finally able to put the table together with the umbrella, the umbrella didn't fit well into the table. Even with the inserts, it is wobbly. What really is deceiving is that in all the photos, it shows the umbrella with a base. We didn't realize that was a separate purchase. This product is over priced for the quality. The only reason I gave it a 2 is because the cover looks nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jojo13 Large shaded area achieved!!!
The umbrella offers a large area of shade. The tilting mechanism appears a bit weak. Only have the umbrella for a few weeks and our season is now over. The umbrella sways a lot with minor winds. Love the sunbrella fabric and overall has a good look. Will it hold up?

Rated 5 out of 5 by saf0414 Wonderful umbrella
We needed a replacement umbrella for our outdoor dining table, and I searched around online, but liked Ballard's selection of fabric colors the best. Plus, I was really pleased with the fact that the fabric is Sunbrella. I'm hoping that it will give us many seasons of use, and stay in good shape. The tilt is a great feature, and the color of the fabric coordinates well with my existing cushions. The fabric is thick and sturdy, and it appears to be great quality. Very pleased with this purchase.

We love our SUNBRELLA 9ft. umbrella.
The color is so saturated and such a beautiful shade of blue.
It simply works as it was described to and it adds such
a peaceful look to our patio.
We would recommend it to anyone who is in need of an
umbrella. It is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarciaK Love the fact that you can remove the umbrella and wash it. Also like the crank to open, rather than the draw strings so many umbrellas have.
Love this umbrella. I purchased two last year and another one this year when they went on sale.

Hi- great product. Only recommendation would be to include instructions on how to attach umbrella fabric to the frame. Figured it out, not sure we did it the best way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nancymary Horrible Quality
I loved this umbrella when I first received it, the key word FIRST. It is now a couple years later and it has not lasted at all! I have only used this at most 5 times because wanted it to last a long time. We put it up for special occasions only. The fabric is not durable and torn and the frame bent. When it is not in use it is in a garage on a shelf so it has no outdoor elements to deal with and has not lasted. We even use the baluster table to put it in and the frame bent. I have not been able to use it this summer/spring at all, it just sits in my garage. A friend was going to order two and I recommended she not because of the lack of durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolly63 9" Sunbrella umbrella:
I was a tad hesitant at first when I saw the umbrella came in two boxes. Yes, you need to attach the umbrella to the pole....and it was very easy! The color, beige, is perfect and our monsoons have arrived here, including lots of wind.
The umbrella has not budged an inch! I love it and plan on purchasing another for over our BBQ area. Thanks Ballard!
