Update: Beach days may be behind us for now, but today’s as good a time as ever to add this to your cart. The Sport-Brella has just been marked down to $38.
Beach weather will be here before you know it, and bar none, Sport-Brella is the umbrella you want to take with you to the shore. Amazon’s discounting the blue and red model to just $43 today. That’s the best price since September for the blue one, but the red has been as low as $40 recently.
Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backwards and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.
