SKLZ Sport-Brella Review & {GIVEAWAY!!} CLOSED

SKLZ provides sports skills development trainers. With amazing products, it is no wonder why their motto is >>practice>>play>>win.
I had the opportunity to review the amazing Sport-Brella. I became interested in this product because my son is very pale. I want to do whatever I can to always keep him protected from the sun. I needed a product that allowed my son to enjoy the outdoors without me having to worry about sunburns.
Even though the Sport-Brella is quite huge, it becomes very compact when closed. It's slender and comes with a bag that allows carrying the Sport-Brella everywhere quite easy. I do wish there was a way to make it shorter when closed so it could be packed in a suitcase while traveling instead of having to check it separately. I was surprised how lightweight the bag is with the Sport-Brella in it. I expected it to be heavy and a burden to carry, but actually I imagine I could hike without a worry with this on my back.
I have absolutely loved owning my Sport-Brella. It is perfect for everyday outdoor use, for the beach, at the sidelines of a game, and anything else you can think of! The Sports-Brella provides protection from rain and wind, but my favorite feature is that it provides UPF 50+ shade, making me feel confident that my son is being protected from the harmful sun.
The Sport-Brella is extremely easy to set up. You open it like you would any umbrella, detach the sides, elongate the pole, and anchor the umbrella to the ground. I had my Sport-Brella set up in under two minutes.
The boys could have been content to play under the Sport-Brella all day. I suggest every mom own at least one! You can purchase your own for $69.99.
