1. Freeport Park Foshee Umbrella

Freeport Park

  • Dimensions: 7’6” W x 7’6” D x 7’8.5” H

With a 4.3 out of 5-star rating and more than 13,600 reviews, we had to ask, what on Earth makes this umbrella so special? Answer: Its large, 9-foot tilt canopy—which rotates with the sun at a press of a push-button—and the long-lasting steel frame, which guarantees the umbrella won’t wobble with the wind. People also love the fact that it’s super easy to set up and there’s a crank halfway up the pole that allows you to open and close the canopy in seconds. “It has more of a nylon feel than other umbrellas, and the air ventilation [keeps] it from catching the wind,” writes one reviewer. “The color, royal blue, is fantastic. I wanted a royal blue umbrella to match the Ritz-Carlton outdoor bar motif in Orlando…I finally found it.” And don’t worry if blue isn’t your thing; it’s available in five other hues, including red, orange, dark green, lime green and beige.

2. Arlmont & Co. Nadasha Umbrella

Arlmont & Co.

  • Dimensions: 9’ W x 9’ D x 8’ H

OK, people—if you’re looking for the chicest, most customizable patio umbrella on the market (that also happens to be 50 percent off), this guy is it. Aside from having over 18 colors to choose from—and the choice between a black or antique brass pole—the canopy is constructed with Sunbrella performance fabric, which means it’s weather-, stain-, UV- and fade-resistant. What’s more, it’s equipped with everything you need, from a crank-lift handle and infinite tilt options to a mildew-resistant, sturdy fiberglass frame that’ll keep it in the base (sold separately). “Nice solid [colors] with a super smooth crank to open the umbrella and tilt it sideways. The [included] tie is long enough to wrap around the umbrella when it’s closed and tie in a bow. Blocks all the sun too,” one person writes in the reviews. The cherry on top? It comes fully assembled with a two-year warranty.

Best Lighted

3. Freeport Park Evangelista Umbrella

Freeport Park

  • Dimensions: 9’ W x 9’ D x 7’10.5” H

Not into the whimsical string light look? This light-up umbrella is the secret to creating a romantic outdoor vibe—without the messy wires. Not only does it feature 32 LED lights built into its eight steel ribs, but it’s also powered by a solar panel with an on/off switch to turn on the lights as needed (so you never have to worry about plugging it in). The umbrella is also easy to use with a hand-crank and a five-position tilt—and the durable, UV-resistant polyester fabric ensures you’ll always have protection from the sun. “Looks great during the day and wonderful at night when lit. Lights are bright enough to add ambiance but aren’t glaring or bug inviting,” one person writes. That said, it’s worth noting another reviewer’s warning: “[You need] to hookup the light wires to the solar battery [or they won’t turn on]. It’s easy to unscrew the top of the umbrella and plug in the wires to the battery.”

Best Cantilever

4. Freeport Park Goodspeed Umbrella

Freeport Park

  • Dimensions: 10’ W x 10’ D x 7’ H

This number, which features an offset angle that's intentionally designed for shading, is crafted with functionality and style in mind. The umbrella's stand is made of durable steel, measuring nearly 8.5 feet tall, and the grounded X-shaped base offers excellent stability. It’s also jam-packed with extra features, including various tilt positions that block sunlight in every direction, a hand-crank for easy opening and closing and 32 LED solar lights in its eight-rib metal frame. Add to that the fact that it’s made with fade-resistant, color-fast canopy fabric, and you have an umbrella that’ll last years. “Assembled within an hour and we were able to charge the LED lights in time to use them at night! Provides ample shade and [crank-lift makes it] extremely easy to put up and to take down,” one reviewer adds.

Best Rectangular

5. Arlmont & Co. Rectangular Umbrella

Arlmont & Co.

  • Dimensions: 10’ W x 6’7” D x 8’ H

Here, a sprawling 10-foot by 6.5-foot umbrella that can provide ample shade for a five-to-eight person seating set (aka great to pair with a new outdoor sectional). On top of its waterproof-, fade- and UV-resistant polyester fabric, the frame is constructed with powder-coated steel, so it’s designed to withstand rust, corrosion, chipping, and peeling (however, the manufacturer states that it should be nailed to the deck or paired with an extra weight for stability). It also has a seamless crank-lift with tilt options that reviewers can’t get enough of: “On our second season with it and it's held up great—even with some windstorms. Bought in navy blue which was the perfect color. Large size provides more shade over our large table.” Plus, another person writes, “This was a perfect solution to my dilemma, which was how to block out a neighbor’s windows. The 10-foot rectangular umbrella on a tilt gave me all the privacy I need.”

Best Striped

6. California Umbrella Mare Series Umbrella

California Umbrella

  • Dimensions: 9’ W x 9’ D x 8’5” H

Per the brand, this umbrella is so sturdy it can withstand everything from “small gale winds” to “big elephant sneezes.” Not only do we love it for its chic striped design (available in blue and black) but the canopy is manufactured with Sunbrella, so you know you’re getting all the benefits of a UV-, stain-, and weather-resistant performance fabric. Its frame is also constructed with a commercial-grade design, which features an easy-to-use crank, riveted and reinforced rib joints and a durable hardwood pole that can withstand years of use. “This is the perfect umbrella to transform your patio or pool area. I love the white and wood combination. The pole of the umbrella is solid wood and very sturdy. The fabric on the umbrella is very thick and high quality and you can tell it will last for years—even in bad weather,” one reviewer writes.

Best for Small Spaces

7. Sol 72 Outdoor Adamski Umbrella

Sol 72 Outdoor

  • Dimensions: 7’6” W x 7’6” D x 7’ H

Designed with compact patios and apartment balconies in mind, this umbrella features six slim ribs and a hexagonal shape that’ll provide enough shade (without overwhelming your space). The anti-rust, 1.5-inch diameter keeps this thin aluminum pole grounded while the canopy is made from weatherproof, UV-protected fabric—and the 45-degree tilt function ensures you’ll get multiple angles of shade. It also features a central vent that allows air to circulate with 18 solar-powered lights that use energy-efficient bulbs (9-12 hours fully charged). Take it from one reviewer, who raves: “Perfect little umbrella for our small patio area! Opens and closes very easily with the crank handle. The umbrella tilts easily with a push button. Beautiful little LED lights on each support beam that give a very nice glow (brighter than expected, but not super bright), with an on/off button. Velcro straps hold the umbrella shut when not in use. Color is vibrant and adds a nice pop of color!”

8. Sol 72 Outdoor Nyasia Umbrella

  • Dimensions: 15’ W x 9’ D x 7’6” H

Last but not least, a super umbrella that can accommodate oversized table and large lounging areas alike. The extra-large, 15-foot bt 9-foot double-sided canopy provides shade in every direction while its three-vent construction is arranged in a rectangular shape to promote air circulation. It also includes a a sturdy steel frame and waterproof polyester fabric that’s made with SPF 50 for UV-protection and resists weather, water, mildew, rust and stains.

Plus, unlike the other options on this list, this guy comes with a stand—so you don’t have to worry about investing in extras to keep the umbrella from flying away: “The stand was easy to put together and is heavy enough with the [included] sand bags filled to hold it down,” one person writes. Plus, another reviewer adds: “It is huge! Perfect for covering our eight-person rectangle table… it’s easy to assemble and it comes with a stand. (I looked for stands with wheels but they’re running upwards of $200…I’m going to keep with the one it came with!)"
