It is not recommended to use a beach umbrella in any scenario in 10+ mph winds. A ShadeCooler mounted umbrella, when used in conjunction with a full ice chest, is able to withstand moderate wind. It is recommended to exercise common sense when deciding to use a beach umbrella on a windy day.
When using the product, always face your cooler handle and ShadeCooler Umbrella Mount into the direction of the wind (pictured at right). Failure to do so could cause damage to your umbrella and/or compromise the integrity of your ice chest.
