Product Story

This is the sun shade that incorporates a German-engineered membrane which blocks harmful rays while allowing the sun’s healthful benefits to shine through. Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer and tested by leading dermatological specialists from the Universities of Tübingen, Germany and Graz, Austria, the canopy—a sophisticated membrane of compound films—filters out damaging UVA/UVB as well as sweat-inducing Infrared-A radiation yet allows enough light to pass through that skin can convert sunlight to vitamin D. Unlike common beach umbrellas that require one to hide from the sun all day or greasy sunscreens that must be slathered on continuously—both which prevent the body from producing vitamin D—this convenient shelter lets users bask in the sun with peace of mind. The arcing shade quickly sets up like a tent and mitigates the sun’s heat, with open panels at the front and back for a cooling cross breeze. A coated polyester floor keeps out sand and debris and three small inner pockets store small items. Rolls into shoulder bag for easy transportation to a beach or campsite. Blue. 92 1/2" L x 51 1/4" H x 41 1/2" D. (8 lbs.)
