Umbrella with Stand is exactly the opposite, facing downward to protect you from radiation while making sure that you get to spend some quality time by yourself. This versatile umbrella measures nine feet in width and is covered with a rugged, all-weather canopy. Measuring over 9 feet in diameter Geneva 9 Umbrella with Stand offers plenty of shade for those sunny or even rainy outdoor days. Complete with a resin base for extra stability. A simple mechanism lets you raise, lower and adjust the canopy, while the wind vent makes sure that it always stays upright, even on breezy days.
