Better than expected
Very sturdy construction. Just when it is extremely windy it can buckle. But for general use it is great.

Great product at a fair price.
Comes with two rods. One for the boat with a notch for rod holder that expands with a twist great design so I’d dont spin. Also a second rod with a twist in composite spike for sand bar days. Super light weight. And swivel angle head. Carry all bag is nice for travel and in the boat keeping gear tight and together. I made a quick YouTube video I liked it so much.

Does the job
Pros: Well built, good design, rust free.
Cons: too expensive, material is not the most durable, i will be replacing mine with sunbrella material when this wears out.

Well constructed, great product overall. We got caught in an evening storm on the way to the boat ramp, put the umbrella up and idled in. The umbrella did its job.

Locks into rod holder!
We placed the umbrella in our bow rod holder and it held up great! The beach spike comes in handy when we are at the sand bar! Thanks Boat outfitters!

Not what I expected!!! Going to send it back. You can get a lot bigger umbrella for a lot less money. Not to mention, I payed for a faster delivery and it didn't show up when it was supposed to, but not there fault. Need to use someone else other than FedEx!!!

I do not like this unbrella at all and am probably going to return it. It does not block the shade on our boat due to the fact you can’t predict where the sun will be. It is also extremely heavy and didficult to put up on the boat!

what if you boat doesn't have any rod holders to hold the umbrella? it only has cup holders. How can the umbrella be fastened to the boat in that instance ?
Elaine M on May 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Elaine, this umbrella was really designed to be used with a rod holder, if you do not have one on the boat one would either need to be added or you would have to try and find some other type of bracket to add to hold it up. I wish I had some better news for you on that but please let us know if you have any other questions.
Does it have tie downs or grommets to tie too for stability?
Billy M on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Billy, Great Question! It does not have tie downs but when its put in a rod holder or in the ground at the sandbar or beach it's pretty sturdy. If you were looking into something that you could use in higher winds for the boat or running I would probably suggest a Bimini top.
How tall is the umbrella? The pole portion?
Trent on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Trent, Good question! the total length of this is 67".
How tall is the umbrella when it is open? I have about 6 rod holders on each side of my console. Just want to make sure, when opens, that is clears the console. I'm sure it will, but need to double check before I buy.
Trent on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Trent, Good question! This umbrella is 8' in diameter when opened.
Have a fishing boat and it has swivel seats with a bracket the seat fits into will the umbrella fit in one of the swivel seat brackets?
Randy C on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Randy, Great Question! The shaft measures 1.36" for a universal fit on any cylinder or rod holder, so as long as it is larger than 1.36" it should fit. Depending on the size of the seat bracket there may be too much room or not enough.

Honestly, how does this hold up in heavy winds?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello, the Hyra Shade is a strong, durable umbrella designed to give you shade when out on the water. As for you question about heavy winds it really depends on the conditions. If you are looking fo something that you can use while running or in storm I would recommend looking into a bimini top. This is really not designed to be used as a permanent top or shelter from heavy weather.
