Outdoor Umbrellas for Proper Shade

When the summertime hits, you and your family could easily spend all day long outside in the pool or lounging on the patio. Whether you're splashing around or engaging in some friendly conversation, you know that shade is the key to fully enjoying everything your backyard has to offer. The sun can be intense, which makes investing in patio umbrellas and patio shades to protect you and your family a smart choice. They keep glare from the sun out of your eyes while you're reading or napping and limit prolonged exposure to the sun. Along with outdoor umbrellas, you can add sun shade sails and gazebos for even more shading options.

Patio Umbrellas

Outdoor umbrellas and other patio shades are an excellent way to add a splash of color or build a focal point in your backyard. They create a little shaded area for people to gravitate around, and they're perfect for hosting poolside get-togethers or just hanging with the family on the weekend. With different colors, bases and tilting options available, you're sure to find one that will fit in with your aesthetic. Fully decorate your patio or backyard with patio sets and patio furniture for an outdoor space that will keep everyone happy and relaxed.


Compact Umbrellas

Weather is unpredictable, and you never want to be without your umbrella if there's a chance of rain. But sometimes you have so much stuff it seems impossible to carry one more thing. That's why some of the best umbrellas are those that fold down to a compact size for easy carrying when it's not raining. And when it does pour, you'll be prepared, often with the push of a button. Keep your feet dry too, by picking out some rain boots.

Golf Umbrellas

Oversize golf umbrellas for sale at Academy Sports + Outdoors are made large to keep both you and your golf cart or other equipment shielded from both drizzle and intense midday sun rays. Perfect for a round on the green, a rainy-day outing at the stadium or a romantic rainy walk with a loved one, these large umbrellas often feature technologies, such as tension cables or a dual-canopy design, to prevent the canopies from inverting, so you remain dry even in windy conditions. For extra protection, consider grabbing a rain jacket or poncho as well.

Kids' Umbrellas

It's hard to keep children dry in rainy weather. They're always running around, and your umbrella is too high anyway, so your little one often gets wet, even walking right next to you. The solution is simple: a kids' umbrella. Child-friendly umbrellas feature fun colors, patterns or characters, so your kids love hanging on to them and extending the canopy to reveal dazzling screen-printed images and designs.
