Here is a quick video on the Montbell ‘Sun Block Umbrella’ which has been a really nice umbrella to use.
It is, for all intents and purposes, a baby chromedome. The weight is not all that different from the chromedome (47 grams / 1.66 oz lighter) but the overall pack volume, or stored length (for when you are not using it) that it offers is a massive savings!
If you are like me and pack volume is precious, it just makes sense going with this little umbrella over the chromedome.
mine weighs: 178 g (6.29 oz)
folded length: 25cm (8.9 in)
full length: 53cm (20.9 in)
diameter: 98cm (38.6 in)
The video quality did not come out very well but I did not feel like reshooting it all, but the important stuff is covered in the video.
You can buy this little guy directly from the montbell website and it is priced at $45.00
