The COBANA umbrella has a diameter of 10 feet and the body is structured with aluminum poles, rust-free frames, steel ribs and a steel base. All of which, make this cantilever umbrella sturdy in construction and even more reliable during summer and rainy season. The style and shape of the umbrella is octagon and its fabric is polyester and fade-resistant which can block up to 90% of harmful UV rays. This type of fabric is also resistant to molds and mildew.

The overall height of COBANA patio umbrella is 8.2 feet which is suitable and tall enough for decks, garden, outdoor tables and furniture. It is lightweight and easy to unfold.​

Just like any other products, this one also has its drawback. Though it is reliable under the intense heat of the sun or during rainy season, it is not recommended to use on windy days.​

    If you’re looking for a cantilever umbrella that you can comfortably place over a table or chair, the Belleze Premium Patio Umbrella has its pole designed on the side. Its base and pole won’t get in the way whenever you place it on your outdoor furniture. That’s why it is ideal for commercial and residential use.

    The construction is equipped with a steel frame, 8 steel ribs and steel crisscross base. The base, however, is not stable enough so it may require more weight using patio blocks or sandbags. With regards to the size, the umbrella measures a diameter of 10 feet which is made of waterproof polyester fabric. Though it may not be recommended to use against strong winds, this type of fabric makes it reliable both on rainy and sunny days. It is UV protective and waterproof. With a total height of 7 feet, you can place it on your patio, decks or garden or on any furniture that is not too tall or big for the umbrella’s size.

    To keep the umbrella away after use, the labor-saving crank winding system allows you to open and close it easily.​

    What we like:

    • The base and pole are designed on the side which can provide shade on your furniture or tables without getting in the way
    • UV protective and waterproof
    • Can be used both on sunny and rainy days
    • Operates crank open system

      What we don't like:

      • The crisscross base is not stable enough so to make better, more weight is needed. It may require sandbags or patio blocks for better stability.
      • Not recommended to use against strong winds
      • The materials are not sturdy enough – complaints regarding poor quality

      The New Tan Patio Umbrella is another good example of an offset umbrella on a budget price but on a great quality. So if you are on a tight budget but looking for a quality product, I think this would be a good option for you. The umbrella cover material is a waterproof polyester with a diameter size of 10 feet which gives great shade and protection from the intense heat of the sun. It also does its job during the rainy season.

      The hanging style of this cantilever umbrella also allows you to cover and protect your exteriors, such as chairs and tables, without getting in the way. The base and pole structured on the side allow it to do so.

      The aluminum poles, steel bottom frame and power-coated steel ribs, all of which are anodized-finish, make the whole construction durable and reliable for many different seasons.

      What we like:

      • Sturdy construction
      • Affordable price but quality product
      • The base and pole are designed on the side which can provide shade on your furniture or tables without getting in the way

        What we don't like:

        • The base needs more weight to make it heavier and more stable
        • The color of the umbrella fades too fast
        • Difficult to set up
