[TOP 10] Best Cantilever Umbrellas Worth The Money

Best Cantilever Umbrellas Reviews 2019

The first day of summer isn’t far from now, ladies and gentlemen! On the 21st of next month, we’ll officially be out of allergy and bumblebee season and be totally in sunny ray and sweating season. While some of us couldn’t be happier to experience hot weather in its finest form, a lot of us are not looking forward to it. Some people can’t handle the heat as well as others, unfortunately. So what about those who are in the middle; they like the heat enough to relax, but don’t want to be overwhelmed by it?

The answer?

They are people who would most likely benefit from owning a cantilever umbrella!

What Is A Cantilever Umbrella?

While most patio umbrellas typically have one position in which they can open up (which is right in the middle), cantilever umbrellas are placed off to the side. They’re specifically designed like this so you can hover the umbrella over furniture such as lounging chairs and coffee tables. Not only does this simplify things out on your outdoor deck, it makes your lounging much more comfortable because you don’t have to position your seat around your umbrella. Not only that, but you can have the convenience of having a table without a standard patio umbrella obstructing your comfort or view of the beautiful outdoor atmosphere.

Finally! A way to enjoy your fruity martini without having to worry about accidentally knocking it over on your deck!

What Do I Look For In A (Recommended) Cantilever Umbrella?

What an excellent question!

There a couple of essential details that you need to take into account when you go in to purchase your cantilever umbrella. Before we get into these details, we would like to issue you fine readers a fair warning. Cantilever umbrellas--or really any kind of umbrella, for that matter--aren’t built to withstand incredibly severe weather conditions. You wouldn’t believe how many negative customer reviews we’ve seen that state their biggest complaint as something along the lines of, “We just bought this umbrella and it BROKE during our trip to the beach! It was windy, but it surely would’ve been able to take it, right?! What a rip-off!!” No, they can’t. They might be strong enough to stand for many hours at a time, but they cannot handle incredibly strong weather--no umbrella can! So please be careful with your cantilever umbrella if you live in an area known to have strong weather on the regular (such as Florida or California).

With this warning out there for you guys to heed, let’s get into some of the core factors that go into purchasing a cantilever umbrella!

First of all, you need to take the umbrella’s height into account. This might be a common sense answer, but hear us out. It wouldn’t be the first time someone has made the mistake of using an umbrella that either hangs too low or too high. There are a few consequences that can come from having umbrellas of this types. Umbrellas hanging too low can be damaged after enough people accidently ram into it enough times, while ones too high are just generally massive pains in the rear to manage! The recommended height is around 9-12 feet in height.

Next up, you want a cantilever with a sturdy base. The base, as you’d probably come to expect, is the place in which you mount the umbrella. A good mount is one that is preferably built out of strong materials, such as metal or exceptionally durable plastic. This is important because if your mount is made out of cheap plastic or otherwise weak materials, it won’t be able to support your cantilever umbrella during your nice day outside. So be careful!

Lastly, you want an umbrella with a reliable locking system. This is another ‘stating the obvious’ type of factor, but it’s incredibly important all the same. If your umbrella doesn’t lock securely enough, you’ll find yourself and your shaded furniture possibly absorbed underneath the might of your umbrella. That’s not cool at all! Make sure your umbrella has a good locking system!

  1    KINGYES Offset Cantilever Umbrella

 KINGYES 10ft Patio Offset Cantilever Umbrella Market Umbrellas Outdoor Umbrella with Crank & Cross Base for Garden, Deck,Backyard and Pool(Beige)

Yes Queen?

More like KINGYES!

The KINGYES Offset Cantilever Umbrella dominates the number one spot of our top ten list of the best cantilever umbrellas worth the money. For starters, this umbrella is impressively light to carry. Seriously, it’s only a little over 30 lbs! This is mighty neat for an umbrella that’s attached to an ultra durable metal stand!

One of the top rated selections from websites like Amazon and Ebay, the KINGYES Offset Cantilever Umbrella has proven a fan favorite amongst multiple media outlets online. It doesn’t cost a whole lot of money (well, when compared to other products, of course), so why not give this baby a look? After all, it does reign supreme amongst customers!

PROS

 - Not too expensive

 - Comes in four different colors

 - Fade-resistant

 -  Anti-UV design

CONS

 - Not very good with stormy weather or heavy winds

  2    Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Hanging Umbrella

Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Outdoor Patio Hanging Umbrella with Cross Base, 8 x 10-Feet, Sand

The Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Hanging Umbrella is a close second on our top ten list of the best cantilever umbrellas. This white cantilever umbrella may not be the cheapest on the market, but it more than makes up for it in dependability. For one, this lovely umbrella is one of the few cantilevers to be fade-resistant confirmed. Yes, confirmed!

Why is this a big deal, you ask? Because one of the biggest complaints we’ve heard about cantilever umbrellas is that their radiant color tends to fade away in quicker time than expected. Now, we know that this perk is cheating (considering this umbrella is white), but hear us out real quick. White colors can fade out if you don’t take care of your belongings. They can become weathered through various storms or contact with dirt or mud.

The Abba Patio Rectangular Offset Cantilever Hanging Umbrella, on the other hand?

No sweat!

PROS

 - Fade-resistant

 - Anti-UV design

 - Waterproof

 -  Provides sufficient shade for hot days

CONS

 - A little pricey

 - Doesn’t do well in extremely heavy winds

  3    Le Papillon Cantilever Umbrella

Le Papillon 10 ft Cantilever Umbrella Outdoor Offset Patio Umbrella Easy Open, Tilt & 360 Swivel for Desired Shade All Day

Introducing our number three spot on our top ten list of the best cantilever umbrellas on the market, the Le Papillon Cantilever Umbrella! Much like the Belleze Cantilever Octagonal Large (which you will see later on in this list), this baby comes with an ‘Easy Open’ system that makes opening your cantilever umbrella a snap. When you compare this umbrella to other models, you will find much more comfort and ease setting this piece of beauty up on your outdoor patio. Just press the button and wowza, you’ve got shade!

The Le Papillon Cantilever Umbrella also comes in three different colors. These color choices consist of beige (pictured), blue, and green. While this may not give you as much variety as some of the umbrellas that will be featured on our list later, you do still get a bit more customization options than you would the other two entrants to show up on this list thus far. If this isn’t a big deal for you, then hey; this umbrella is still great on its other merits!

PROS

 - Comes in three different colors

 - The ‘Easy Open’ system saves you lots of time

 - Provides sufficient shade for hot days

 -  Lighter than most umbrellas

CONS

 - A little pricey

 - Doesn’t do well in extremely heavy winds

  4    PURPLE LEAF 11 Feet Double Top Deluxe Hanging Umbrella

PURPLE LEAF 11 Feet Double Top Deluxe Patio Umbrella Offset Hanging Umbrella Outdoor Market Umbrella Garden Umbrella, Black

The PURPLE LEAF 11 Feet Double Top Deluxe Hanging Umbrella is very similar to the entrant just below this one (you’ll see why very soon). With this in mind, one may ask us,“Why didn’t you just lump these two umbrellas together? Aren’t they the same?” Well, yes and no. They do come from the same brand and they have some of the same pros and cons. However, there is one BIG difference this umbrella has that the other doesn’t (or at least not to the same degree).

This umbrella, ladies and gentlemen, is customizable in color and height!

11 feet is the initial height for this cantilever umbrella, but that can be changed depending on whatever your circumstances might be. The 10 feet version of this umbrella doesn’t quite adjust its height as easily as this one does, which is why it’s number five on this list and this one is number four. After all, adjustable height can be a lifesaver when taking into the different heights and sizes of the people and furniture going underneath this umbrella. We certainly think it’s helpful!

PROS

 - Waterproof

 - Anti-UV design

 - Fade-resistant

 -  Provides sufficient shade for hot days

- Height is completely adjustable

- Ten different colors!

CONS

 - Expensive

 - Not very good with stormy weather or heavy winds

  5   PURPLE LEAF 10 Feet Double Top Round Deluxe Hanging Umbrella

 PURPLE LEAF 10 Feet Double Top Round Deluxe Patio Umbrella Offset Hanging Umbrella Outdoor Market Umbrella Garden Umbrella, Beige
The PURPLE LEAF 10 Feet Double Top Round Deluxe Hanging Umbrella makes quite the difference as one of our cantilever deck umbrellas. Despite only coming in at number five on our list, this baby brings a lot of promise to your patio. For starters, this umbrella is highly fade-resistant; even though it comes in ten different colors that would normally fade away very quickly and easily. Oh yes, you heard that right. This umbrella comes in ten different color schemes!
Those colors, ladies and gentlemen, are as follows: beige, black, brown, burgundy, green, grey, terra, turquoise blue (our personal favorite!), brick red, and navy blue.
Phew, we think that’s all of them, folks!
And if the insane number of color schemes weren’t enough, the PURPLE LEAF 10 Feet Double Top Round Deluxe Hanging Umbrella has an excellent reputation for being a trustworthy umbrella for your outdoor deck. The few complaints we’ve heard of primarily stem from the umbrella’s tendency to break down in extreme weather. But you know what? What canitlever umbrella doesn’t struggle in stormy weather?
Also this cantilever umbrella is pretty expensive when you compare it to the other entrants on this list.
That, our friends, is a problem for those of you living on a tight budget.

PROS

 - Waterproof

 - Anti-UV design

 - Fade-resistant

 -  Provides sufficient shade for hot days

- Ten different colors!

CONS

 - Expensive

  10   Belleze Cantilever Octagonal Large

 Belleze 10ft Outdoor Patio Umbrella Sun Shade Hand Crank Tilt UV Resistant Cantilever Octagonal Large w/Base, Red Color:Burgundy

Our final outdoor cantilever umbrella on our top list of bests is the Belleze Cantilever Octagonal Large. One look at this product and you can see already why so many people are enticed by it. For one, it’s got its handy ‘Easy Open’ system, which works with a simple button press. Most cantilever umbrellas have other, more time-consuming means of opening up (think those old metal latches...ugh!). This baby, however, won’t waste any time in getting you and your family nice and cool for the hot summer sun!

Secondly, the price on this cantilever umbrella is remarkably low. You usually don’t find umbrellas this cheap on the internet unless they’re small rain umbrellas that you carry to work. Otherwise, the Belleze Cantilever Octagonal Large is within the proper price-range. So if you’re living on a budget at the moment, fear not!

Lastly, look how gorgeous this umbrella is!

Rosy red--a fine color shade!

PROS

 -The ‘Easy Open’ system saves you lots of time

Concluding Thoughts

There are a couple of things to look for when you’re purchasing a cantilever umbrella for your outdoor deck. You typically want one that is dependable, i.e it won’t close up on you automatically nor will it break on you after a gentle breeze hits your yard. Sure, these umbrellas are known to be weak to extreme weather, and it’s not a give in that they’ll last against significantly strong winds. However, you still want an umbrella that can outlast the small stuff long enough for you to thoroughly enjoy your summer day as you rightfully should.

Thankfully, all ten of these lovely cantilever umbrellas have got you covered!

While these umbrellas all have very similar perks, only the KINGYES Offset Cantilever Umbrella promises all of them while maintaining a shockingly short price tag. Sure, some of the other options on this list are also cheap patio umbrellas. However, they don’t carry the same amount of benefits as our number one choice does. Of course, it also comes in one color...

But in the end, the final choice depends on you lovely readers!

Which umbrella will you be popping open for this hot weather?
