Welcome to dickblick
The innovative Shadebuddy Umbrella Set from Guerrilla Painter is an economical way to provide hassle-free shade for yourself and your easel.
This high-quality umbrella is designed with a reflective silver outer shell to keep you cool in the field and a non-reflective black lining to keep your colors looking true.
Best of all, you don't have to worry about your work tipping over during a strong wind gust. The Shadebuddy has its own lightweight stand with a sturdy ground stake, plus a convenient foot pedal that makes insertion a snap. Air vents on the umbrella help it stay exactly where you plant it. Adjust the angle for maximum shade, in addition to protection from the wind.
Weighing just 4¼ lb, the Guerrilla Painter Shadebuddy Umbrella is virtually effortless to tote with the included shoulder bag.
The Shadebuddy measures 4 ft Dia × 6½ ft (1.2 m × 2 m) high. It is compatible with all Guerrilla Painter setups as well as traditional French easels.

Comments about Guerrilla Painter Shadebuddy Umbrella Set:
I've been using this umbrella for about 2 years now. On the plus side, it's large enough to cover my pochade box and me, and it's easy to set up.On the negative side, unless you're in dirt or gravel there's no way to set it up as you can't drive that stake into black top, rock, or a patio/deck!I've also found that with the least little bit of wind, it tends to SPIN (despite the vents) and wobble, and it digs itself a wider hole and quickly becomes unstable. I always wind up having to either hold it with my non-painting hand or secure it with an awkward arrangement of multiple bungees.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was delighted at how solid and thoughtfully designed the Shadebuddy turned out to be. Much more robust than I expected. I am a tall guy (6'5), and was also concerned that I might have to rig an extension, but it turned out to be perfect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Quick set-up. Very stable in the wind.

The Shadebuddy does the job! Tired of your umbrella blowing off or damaging your easel? This item does the trick. Easy to use.

I've used this product only twice and so far it has worked well. Easy to set up and plant into the ground with a good heave-ho from an available foot. The umbrella provides a good balance of sun protection and allowing light to pass thru. Since manufacturing integrity is fro the most part a thing of the past, the zipper has already broken and I am using a strap in its place.

i am a plein aire watercolor painter, and this umbrella is perfect! It's super easy to get into the ground, and set's up quickly.

High Quality, Unique Product
from Kansas City, MO
Big enough to keep you *and* your easel in the shade. Seems that where the view is, there's no shade, so this comes in very handy. It won't work on the sidewalk or on rock, but it's easy to stick in the ground. I've used it as a windbreak, too, by turning it at a 90* angle to the ground. Great shelter.
