he highlight of this special umbrella is its telescope fiber glass shaft which is variably extendable up to one metre in length and can be fixed at any height by a small twisting movement. By means of two accompanying turnable clips to be fastened at the front with Velcro strips to the two carrying belts of the backpack the umbrella can be positioned to the right or the left according to the direction of the wind. the elastic carrying loop at the umbrella handle serves as flexible fastening to the hip belt.
Without doubt, its greatest advantage is that hands stay completely free, free for trekking poles, free to hold on to somewhere but also to change a lens, work the GPS or look at the walking map. It is also extremely useful as a protection from rain or sun for small kids riding on their parents´s backs in a carrying seat.
Of course it can also be used as a completely ordinary trekking umbrella. A comfortable velvety handle of touch-friendly high density EVA hard foam offers the highest possible carrying comfort. With a diameter of 114cm it is large enough in any case to protect both hiker and backpack from rain well and reliably.
The choice of material and workmanship of this trekking umbrella meets the special wear and tear when walking and hikers´high requirements to their equipment. A particularly lightweight and highly tear-resistant Polyester fabric with Teflon ® coating is used for the canopy. The entire umbrella frame consists of elastic and extremely break-proof fiber glass material. The frame is nearly completely metal-free and so corrosion-proof.
