Sun Fact

Children will be more inclined to practice sun protection if they understand why it’s important, namely to prevent skin cancer and premature aging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calotta Fashion Umbrella I love my Calotta Fashion Umbrella. This is my second one and I will not purchase any other umbrella. I love how not only the umbrella protects you from the rain ~ I have also used the umbrella to protect me from the “HOT” Texas sun. Love the idea ~ the inside of the umbrella reflects the sun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coolibar's shade tree keeps me cool Summers in Central FL are brutal, but I can walk each morning because of my umbrella; a cooling breeze is created from convection currents underneath this "shade tree".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I've only used it twice, and it's worked fine. It could use a vent at the top like the beach umbrella, because in a strong wind, it was hard to control. I was afraid it was going to turn inside out, or that I was going to fly away like Mary Poppins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get it! This is great! Carrying strap makes it easy to haul along and it makes such a difference blocking the heat from sun! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good big umbrella This umbrella is sturdy & a decent size to protect you from sun rays, but is lightweight & easy to carry. I’m glad I bought it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Umbrella but too heavy I bought this umbrella and had to return it. It was too heavy to carry around while walking, and I am a robust and in my 40's. Even my husband didn't want to carry it, and he carries 40 pound backpacks. He said it was too awkward and uncomfortable for walking. The idea was to take it with me during my 1-2 hour daily walks. It rested too heavily on my shoulder. The umbrella provides lots of shade and would be great walking from your car to a store or sitting on a bench reading. I did not need it for that so I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, tough, effective I have had my umbrella for almost ten years. I used it at work when I worked as an agricultural inspector in Florida, and now that I’m retired I use it every time I go for a walk. I use it when I garden in the sun. Sometimes I even use it in the rain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in the Shade I love this umbrella. It's built well. The opening mechanism is solid and works like a charm. The shade that the umbrella creates allows me to stay cool even on a super sunny day because I can wear skimpy clothing that allows for airflow on my skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great umbrella but with one devastating oversight I really like this umbrella. In fact, I bought it twice. However my second umbrella just broke for the exact same reason my first one did: if at any point it ever falls on the ground tip-first while shut, the plastic mechanism that holds the umbrella in the handle straight pops clean off, making it impossible to snap in place again. I don't even know where the piece wound up. It's probably in the handle still but I can't even get in there to check since everything about this umbrella is sturdy and made well. I don't even know where to start if I ever wanted to repair it myself if I had the parts since this thing is built like a puzzle box... A UV Umbrella has been one the best purchases I've ever made, but this one is a bit too heavy for its own good if you plan on using it everyday, running errands and whatnot, like I do. If you bend over, the umbrella will swing around if it's strapped to the shoulder, which often whacks me in the face if happen to tie my shoes. Needing two hands to close it isn't so bad with a working locking mechanism but without that, it just becomes an unwieldy inconvenience, so much so that it necessitated another umbrella when the first one broke. If they somehow resolve this issue I will surely buy again, but until then I don't think I'll be investing in this a third time just for one of its best features to shatter after a small, direct dive into the pavement a few months later.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love this umbrella I bought the travel umbrella one year ago I use it for 6 months and the open and close botón stop working. The big umbrella was a gift I used it for 3 months and all the pieces of metal in the middle fell apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big umbrella = big protection from the sun! I got this umbrella in silver and keep in the car, so it's with me wherever I go in Scottsdale. It's a relief to know I can carry my own shade that covers any exposed skin. My only suggestion to Coolibar is that you make a collapsible, compact version; one that can fit in my handbag when I'm shopping. Until then, I'll use this one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed ☹️ This was a gift less than a year ago I used it at least 5 times and now the button is malfunctioning. It’s so sad because it’s the best Sunshine umbrella I have ever had. Doubt if I will invest in one after my experience. Glad I didn’t use my money to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Early to Tell It's only been a few weeks since I purchased the item, however, so far so good. It opens and closes efficiently and resists strong gusts of wind. I'm assuming it's also protecting me from the strong UV rays emitted by the sun. Living here in Hawaii, I would consider this item to be essential for all those wanting to protect and shield themselves from dangerous ultraviolet rays that result in serious damage to the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. I have only used this umbrella one weekend so far but I really like it. It seems sturdy and looks nice. I also like the opening mechanisim. I really hope the umbrella holds up. If so it is a great purchase. I had read some reviews and there were cases of things breaking. I also got the compact travel umbrella and next to the fashion umbrella it seems really chincy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awkward closing I'm glad this umbrella was a gift. I would not have bought it if I knew the only way to keep it closed was with the Velcro straps and the case. There is a button but it does not open the umbrella. It slides up and down the slit in the metal but does nothing to keep the umbrella closed or nothing to open the umbrella as the umbrella opens as soon as I release the straps. The sad part is that I have never used the umbrella. It was given to me several years ago and has hung in my closet until now. It would still be hanging there had I not become curious as to whether I could use it in the rain after losing my rain umbrella. The gift giver said it was for the sun. I just removed the packaging and tags and hung the umbrella. Now on my first try I see this apparent malfunctioning button. Wish I had tried it earlier. Disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stands up to fierce winds! My coolibar umbrella must be 8 years old. The pop button did become non functional after 7 years or so, but still durable and usable.I carry it every day! Living in the desert it keeps me cooler and protects me from the sun. I'm buying a second one as the first, while still in good condition, has faded from the 120 degree heat out here. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice, but close button+tip popped out I love the sun, but I don't want to be *in* the sun. I also love the rain, but I don't want to be *in* the rain! This umbrella helps solves both problems haha... and is also very stylish and pretty. I can't carry an ugly umbrella and when I saw this I knew I wanted it. The general look and feel is very nice, but I think the actual build is good and could be better. I can't say I used it more than two dozen times - because I live in Los Angeles and it doesn't rain here that often. (We actually have had a drought for 8 years!). And I've pulled it out only a few times for scorching hot days or the few rare super wet ones. Everything would be perfect BUT... the the close button popped out. AND one of the tips also took off for a new life of its own, which left the umbrella flapping. I had to sew a piece of material on to make sort of a pocket for the umbrella rib, to keep the material back on the frame. And I don't have a solution for the missing button, I just pull the umbrella down and use the velcro strap to shut the whole thing tight. It is a pretty good umbrella in many respects, but it also seems to fail under normal basic use in other respects. So... a little torn here. I will continue to use it (it still is 95% functional); But instead of loving it... I just like it. When and if it conks out completely I would still probably buy another, and just hope it stands up a little better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best umbrella I’ve ever owned My wife have been using these umbrellas daily in the Ecuadorian Andes. They are the best protection we have from the intense sun. They are very strong against the wind. Will purchase more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was great while it worked! I loved this umbrella so much. It protected me quite well and was the perfect size for walking on my commute on weekdays. However, the opening mechanism became sluggish after about two months of use (Ordered it in late August, stopped working this past week). Then it didn't open at all, and then, when opening it once manually, three of the spokes bent. I love this umbrella so much, but it wasn't hardy enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sun Protection We have 3 Coolibar umbrellas. We have the golf umbrella, the compact, folding umbrella, and, this fashion umbrella. We especially love this one for it's perfect size and ease of use. I am highly sensitive to the sun. I have noticed that when I use this umbrella, my skin reaction is greatly decreased. I keep this umbrella in my car at all times. We have not had any issues with the construction of this umbrella, or the other 2 we have. Excellent quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Umbrella I have had this umbrella for over 3 years, got it in silver and it has held up great, great sun protection and it works also in the rain. Love love it. I have sun sensitivity and I needed something to protect me from the sun. My husband purchased it for me and I will purchase another but this one has held up longer than I thought it would, unbelievable. The tip of it has broken but 3 year you should expect some wear and tear. And it still works.
