TeleBrella® Portable Beach Umbrella

Telebrella® portable beach umbrella with telescoping frame is perfect for air travel. Flying to that much anticipated beach get away? What if you can’t buy an umbrella once you get there? Tired of playing the “Towel Game” with fellow resort guests? You know the ones: they get up early in the morning, set their beach towel on a beach set and then walk away assuming they have reserved the chair and/or umbrella for the entire day, leaving everyone else to scramble for shade. See how actual customers shared this experience with us.

You can do without a lot at the beach, but shade is a necessity. The problem is: how do you get a full sized beach umbrella into a suitcase? We’ve solved that problem with our latest beach gear innovation The TeleBrella® Portable beach umbrella with telescoping ribs.

Shade USA has been the only innovator to address the need for a fully portable travel-ready folding beach umbrella. Our PortaBrella® Portable Beach Umbrella has been on the market for years now. Our now famous PortaBrella® has been the runaway best-selling beach umbrella at our flagship website (ya, we’re the beach umbrella experts when it comes to innovation and quality. We are truly beach bums at heart and in practice).

We’ve listened to our customers who have been inquiring over the possibility of a larger shade canopy while keeping to the golden 24″ inch folded length needed to qualify as a truly portable suitcase-able beach umbrella. Here’s how we made it happen: we were working with a camera tripod a few years ago when the light bulb went on: why not use the same telescoping-legs technology to produce a telescopic umbrella frame?

It’s taken us three years to perfect the concept. We’re proud to bring to market a rock solid, fully portable 7′ beach umbrella. Please see below to learn more about TeleBrella’s unique design features and travel beach umbrella package.

Final analysis: If price and ease of use are most important, then PortaBrella® might be the right choice for you. However, if you’re like us and you’d prefer extra shade, the strongest beach umbrella frame on the market and you don’t mind the set up, then TeleBrella® would be a good fit. Tip: we found in testing that the simplest way to use TeleBrella® is to assemble your umbrella in your room and use the included 4′ carry bag for the walk to your shady spot. This cuts down on a few minutes of installation at the beach, although we did draw a crowd as folks came to ask what we had and where they could get one.

The Towel Game

“We purchased two portable beach umbrellas to bring them with us to our favorite Mexican resort which unfortunately does not provide enough shade spots, so people play this “towel” game at 6:00 am. We are very happy with our purchase!!! It’s really lightweight, compact, well made, and easy to assemble. One umbrella really provides enough shade for two people.”

“We took this umbrella to a resort in the Dominican Republic. When other people would get up at 5 a.m. to claim a resort “Palapa”, we could sleep in, and stroll down to the beach when ever we felt and set up our travel beach umbrella.”
