JoeShade Sunshade Umbrella - Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Down here in Texas, spring is in full bloom and the heat of summer is on its way. It often reaches 100 degrees during the hottest months and sometimes even higher. Last summer, across the country there were heat alerts everywhere, including the upper northeast. I remember sweating in the hot sun for air shows and sporting events, and then dealing with the painful sunburn afterwards. This year, I'm ready for it all with my new JoeShade, a personal shade umbrella!
When my kids played soccer and baseball, I remember parents lugging along giant pop up shade tents that took several people to assemble, and by the time it was all set up practice was nearly over. JoeShade comes in a matching handy shoulder strap bag, plus I can set it up in less than 2 minutes all by myself. This ingenious shade umbrella is made with special fabric that also blocks harmful UV A and B rays.
There are two main pieces to the JoeShade - the bottom stand and the umbrella post, plus there are three ground stakes included in case its a windy day. I certainly don't want this fabulous sunshade umbrella blowing away! Think of all the wonderful places a JoeShade would come in handy - sporting events, camping trips, local parks, dirt races, beaches, swimming pools, and even your own yard (my backyard has no trees at all)!
The JoeShade is freestanding on its broad-base tripod legs, providing excellent stability. I love the 60" wide umbrella reach because it offers plenty of room for both my husband and me. If you have small children or a baby, it is really important to keep them shaded and cool. JoeShade comes in blue, red, or green so you can even choose a color that complements your favorite team or your beloved lawn chair.
This portable UV sun shade umbrella adjusts from 3 ft. low to 8 ft. high for maximum shade, plus it has a tilt function that allows for protection from multiple angles. JoeShade is also a proud sponsor of the Melanoma Research Foundation! I love when a company supports charity.
The JoeShade also features wind vents to help keep your umbrella right where you want it. I'm amazed at all the attention to detail and I'm even more happy with the ease of use. I'll probably be using mine every single day in my backyard, but I'll also be taking it with me to every outdoor event that I attend. I may end up getting a second JoeShade so I can keep one in the trunk of my car all the time.
You and your family will certainly find plenty of uses for a sunshade umbrella. Even my dog loves the instant shade that JoeShade provides! I highly recommend this product and the company. I love my JoeShade and I know you will too.
