Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

A couple weeks ago I received the new teleScope umbrella (trekking umbrella with length adjustable shaft) for my birthday. As an avid off-trail hiker I always was looking for an umbrella I can easily hold even when I'm carrying my 80-pack or my child carrier with my 2-year old son on my back.

The shaft of this hiking umbrella expands up to 22.5 inches and allows me + my 80-backpack or child carrier (I'm only 5ft6) to fit comfortable underneath the ca. 42 inch canopy without having to hold the umbrella awkwardly high. A clever solution with only the twist if its handle. Speaking of handle - it's some sort of foam handle that keeps your grip secure even if your hands are wet. Thirdly, it's very light weight and has a nifty "hook" open/close mechanism.

The only downside when I checked on this model online is that it only comes in black and with silver-metallic UV protective coating.

Overall --> thumbs up!
