After researching several companies that carry UV umbrellas, I selected the UV Blocker because they gave a lot of information on their product. Yes, the umbrellas are pricey but after receiving it, I feel it was well worth the price. I purchased 5 Fashion umbrellas. 3 are for my girlfriends for our 67th birthday celebration since they are all walkers. Another is for my girlfriend with skin cancer above her nose and the last is for myself because I have vitiligo (light colored skin patches). My dermatologist highly recommends everyone should use sunscreen lotion and/or a UV umbrella to protect their skin. I found the Fashion Umbrella to be a good size to use while walking. If needed, you can adjust the position of the umbrella according to the sun’s position. I walk at least a mile twice a day and find the weight of the umbrella to be very doable and lightweight. I am considering in getting the large folding umbrella for additional coverage and a travel size umbrella for trips. It will be smaller in diameter but easier to transport in my handbag. The claim that it is cooler under the umbrella is noticeable.
