Tropical Thatch Umbrella Cover
Approx. 10 ft dia. (100 lbs.)
We are trying to put the feeling of the tropics into our pool area in Dallas. Found this item in SkyMall and had to have it!! It is very well constructed. The weave is beautiful on the underside. You definitely need to have at least an 8 foot umbrella. Anything smaller, the fronds hang too low.
It is also heavy. You need 2 people to center it and stand up the umbrella, but it is worth it. It looks great. Now to plant the Hibiscus's and Palm trees and get the carved Tiki Mask tables off my wish list and my tropical bliss will be started.
My husband and I have seen this Thatch Umbrella cover for a few years now in the SkyMall magazine. We always wished we NEEDED it. Well we did...got a great Tropical Table and Chairs a few weeks ago and were so excited when we remembered that we always wanted this. We ordered it IMMEDIATELY!!! We did NOT expect it to be 'real'. Thought it would be some fake material, but it wasn't. We were extra excited about that. We absolutely LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!
Makes your poolside feel like a tropical resort.
It is a great addition to my back yard. Gives the tropical feel that I was looking for.
It looks really nice but the top where it hangs over the umbrella is poorly made. Probably won't hold up.
This is the most authentic looking thatch umbrella cover I've ever seen in any store!! I bought this for my husband who LOVES the beach and it has turned our backyard into a tropical paradise. The cover fits perfect on top of our umbrella but it does take 2 people to place it on top. I would recommend this product to everyone.
Really had a tropical look. Thatch was thick and heavy and did not look cheap like some tropical umbrellas do.
Good Product---- Great Service
I was so happy with the first thatch I purchased 4 years ago that I decided to get another when it finnally started to look a little ragged due to the very dry weather in my area, southwest. My back yard with the tropical plants and jacuzzi are complemented very well by the realistic addition of the thatch. It is quite a talking piece with company.
I received this thatch umbrella cover in 5 days, and I love it. It really is bringing the tiki theme of our backyard together. Great Purchase and well worth the money!
This tropical thatch cover looks real because it is real, not plastic like others I have seen.
It changed the entire atmosphere in our pool enclosure.
We just love it. So easy to install and looks wonderful.
It was better than I thought and would buy it again. This one is high quality and since we live in Arizona with extreme heat it has been nice to cool off under!
I have bought other thatched covers and the AZ sun has ruined them in two weeks!! This one is made of real thatched leaves and looks great!! This will last. I recommend this cover to all that want a tropical look for their tables.
The cover came by ups and was very heavy.
It took 2 men to get it on the unbrella. Once the cover was on, it weighed so much that I thought the pole was going to snap. Its a really strong market style 9 foot Unbrella. I ended up getting a piece of 2 inch thick 5 foot tall fence pole to reinforce the Unbrella pole. It looks good after spray paint on the metal. I own 2 covers and it looks like they are good quality. When I first unfolded the cover I thought is was nice all braided and tied, then I found I was looking at the underside of the cover. The topside looks just like the picture here. I live in the south where we can have some thunderstorms, so I lower the Unbrellas when it looks like rain. They lower almost closed now that I have the Metal Poles, so they still look like a Tiki Huts just smaller when lowered.
We put our thatch cover on our old (7 1/2-foot) umbrella and realized we need a larger umbrella. I've been looking for a 9-foot one and hope to buy one at Lowe's Building Center. I decided to check the site wher I purchased this (Skymall) to see if they gave the opening diameter so it will fit over a new finial. Thank God I read the first review (by a man, no less !) about how the braided side is the WRONG side. The thatch as pictured is the RIGHT SIDE. Well, for future purchasers of this product, it comes packed w/ the braided side showing. NO INSTRUCTION that you should reverse it. I figured they just sent a different 'style'. I just assumed it came packed right side out. In fact, I almost tried to UNBRAID it thinking they just wanted to be sure the 'thatch' wouldn't get tangled in shipping. Can't wait to tell my husband this one when I speak to him today. My sister had a great laugh when I told her. Anyway, just a heads up for other people ordering this.
Makes our deck look like we are in the tropics, our friends were amazed that we found this, they all want one now. One of the coolest things we have ever purchased.
I have been looking for this type of cover for several years. I love the rustic look of the real palm material.
I looked all over Baja for one and never could find one. They always told me that I could have one made when in Baja.
Then I flew to Cabo one day and saw the cover in the Sky Mall magazine. I immediately bought it and had it shipped to my house in Orange County, CA.
I read all the reviews prior to purchase- I did not have any issues with the cover being inside out- This cover is HUGE and does weigh (34 Pounds) alot- The only suggestion is measure your Umbrella cover first. Most commmon umbrellas are 9 feet- and this cover is 10 feet- I raised my base up so I didnt have to duck under. For the price and quality this is A+++
It's really great quality and very cool to have! Makes you feel like you're in the tropics! Very authentic! I love it and its the second one I've bought. I had the first one for about 7 years but then it started to fall apart. We don't keep it outside all the time to preserve it better. It is very heavy though and makes the umbrella lean one way usually because of the weight. Need two people to put it on. I will always have one because I love the atmosphere it makes!
Excellent quality. If you're looking for an Island feel for your patio, this is it. The only thing to note is that its a heavy 35lbs. Ideally 3 people to put it on right. Make sure you have a strong Market umbrella to handle it. This is not for a lightweight outdoor umbrella. Fits perfect on a 9'.
we put this thatch on our regular umbrella and it hung down over it by shoulder length so that we were not able to sit under the umbrella without lifting the thatched cover. we then bought a new umbrella that
was heavy duty but the thatched umbrella snapped the pole. now what????
A very nice addition to our yard,its a show piece
that gets a lot of attention and all want to know how we got it. The only draw back was the weight 35-40 lbs so 2-3 adults are needed to properly install.
Also a negative was no instructions came along for how to maintain and store after season is over.
The overall quality is very good and its a great product.
Absolutely love it! Looks cool! Keeps deck cooler too! Fits over our old umbrella. Now we have a beachy looking deck! Very tropical. Well made- natural material. Very sturdy.
i was very excited when my thatch umbrella cover arrived - but once we put it up, we noticed it had some spots of mold on the palm leaves. I tried to ignore it, but once it got rained on, the mold spread and it's unusable. Very disappointing.
