Outdoor cantilever umbrella reviews

Cantilever umbrellas are increasing in popularity due to their practicality over the alternative, the centre pole umbrella. With cantilever umbrellas, the pole is offset, meaning they cast shade away from the pole, allowing you to enjoy a wider shaded area. They also rotate around the pole, giving you a lot more control over where your shade is and allows you to move it with the sun over the day.
