Post Looking to Purchase a Ground Umbrella for Lockn. Any Reviews
Hi Friends, I'm looking to buy a ground umbrella with sides for Lockn this year for shared shade. Don't worry, it won't be in the front row or in anyone's dancing space, but it will offer friends a little break from the all day sun.

Does anybody here own one? Any reviews to offer? Any input would help me a lot. Thanks, lovelies!

We've never had one Andy but our daughter brought one to Vibes one year. They look pretty basic and work well to block the sun but it still got warm under it due to no breeze. You're suppossed to be able to raise it up and tie it off but that presented a problem with tripping people as they walked by. We probably just didn't set it up correctly.

Thanks Jeff. I've done research on line. Looking to see if anyone actually owns one. The bad reviews on the Sportbrella are really really bad. Haven't seen many other brands, but am going to look at sports store this weekend.

Ha ha! Just thought it would be nice to get something to take breaks from standing in the sun all day. Add a tapestry, some pillows and trick it out like a teeny sultan's tent. Then all of you can fetch me fancy umbrella drinks... But seriously, anyone can share the shade if they need a break.

we purchased a sportbrella XL for our trip last august to tybee. It did not withstand any wind, was hotter than hell underneath, and gave very little shade. we ended up throwing it in the trashcan and renting one from the lifeguards.
