I had the amazing opportunity to review a portable shade umbrella from JoeShade.
JoeShade® portable sun shade umbrella was invented out of our passion for youth sports and a necessity to be comfortable on the sidelines.
In 2002, while coaching little league baseball, we noticed parents and grandparents swapping turns holding beach umbrellas trying to get some shade from the blistering sun rays. We also noticed parents taking breaks to sit in their air conditioned cars, but were missing their child’s best at-bats or game saving plays. We came up with the perfect solution — JoeShade, the portable, instant shade that keeps you cool and protected on the sidelines.
Today, over 100,000 JoeShades can be found at little league baseball games, soccer fields, corporate events and every outdoor venue.
JoeShade® is the original lightweight, portable UV shade umbrella! It stands freely in place, providing UV shade protection wherever you go from the sun and heat. Our shade umbrella sets up quickly on a tripod stand and stores easily in its matching carrying bag. With your JoeShade umbrella, you can keep your cool and stay protected from UV rays, or you can stay dry and wait for the clouds to roll on by.

Here is a video about the umbrella.
I was excited to review this umbrella since I need to limit my exposure to the sun. Did you know that a lot of prescription medication has a warning label of not being in direct or artificial sunlight? Some medication make you more prone to the suns harmful rays. You no longer have to miss out on your families fun due to the sun.
This umbrella is great for creating shade where you need it the most. You are no longer forced to be cramped under a small area. You can see from the picture above how big the sunshade umbrella is and how much shade it creates. It also comes with a great bag to store it in. It’s easy to store in your trunk for easy access.
What makes this umbrella stand out for me is the fact that you can tilt it to block the sun. As the sun changes position all you need to do is move the umbrella a bit. Here is a picture to show what I mean.
This is great for sporting events or family picnics. Don’t forget Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are both coming up. This would make a great gift.
