Once the Summer is truly with us, or maybe on vacation in France, we only bother taking our two Isabella sun shadows.
Originally we just used one sun shadow, basically a big handkerchief that erects in a few seconds. Fibre poles as standard - total weight a few kilos.
Like LEGO blocks, the Isabella sun shadows simply clip together, so We now use a second (on the front edge of the original) to provide angled cover against the sun.
If you need something with a bit more cover, we had a look at other options from the Isabella range or the sun canopies from van der Horn in Holland. These take a bit longer to erect, have some side cover, and look good as well.
