If you like some shade and do not want to carry around a full-size parasol, then this may be the answer. The design incorporates a shorter and thinner pole but still provides a generous sized canopy. What's more, it comprises a double-sided polyester fabric with a plain colour on top and a pattern underneath. This makes it a stylish travel accessory. Not to be confused with the cheap, thin and brash parasols available at the beachfront.
Note: this parasol is too long when folded to fit into a suitcase.
