The umbrella is great! It was a little difficult to open but each day it has gotten easier each day. It provides a very good amount of shade and is sturdy. We usually have a 20-25 mph breeze blowing and it easily stands up to it. Glad I have. I would say, the majority of the umbrellas on our beach are Frankford. I believe the umbrella arrived very quickly after I ordered it and in good condition.
