Soleil Personal Outdoor Shade 4.6 5 26 26
Excellent shade I just finished purchasing my second personal shade. It is well made, has good weight and the Palm Springs dust made me glad I ordered the bronze color (dust just shakes off). Great product when the wind comes up and you don't have worry about it blowing away. The tilt function works well. April 8, 2014
Love this Shade--YES--IT DOES TILT I was hesitant to purchase this shade since the previous reviews noted that it does not tilt. I took a chance, however, and when I assembled it, guess what-- it did not tilt as previously noted. I called the support number and was told by a very helpful representative, Matt, that you have to be very firm when tilting it for the first time and then it should be easy thereafter. I told him I was concerned about breaking it if I pulled too hard and he assured me that Frontgate would replace it if it broke. I did not pull on the shade but pulled on the mechanism at the top of the pole where it swivels and it worked. Now it tilts with great ease when pulling on the shade--it just needs to be loosened firmly the first time. I do not think that it is filmsy as previously noted--very sturdy and classy looking. Going to purchase one more in a different color. Thanks Frontgate. June 29, 2011
Personal outdoor shade Live in SW Florida where the sun is unforgiving. Purchased this as gift for the hubs. To my surprise, he really loves it. He enjoys sitting by the pool at the end of his day with a cold beer. He's bald & I've bought him every hat imaginable but "forgets" to take most (except ball caps ). This solves the at home dilemma. He can swim, go sit & now doesn't have to wear a hat at all! This thing is very easy to position (or reposition) on wheels. It's easy to open & close. The Sumbrella fabric is on tight . We can watch the sunrise & sunsets without having to rush inside because its glaring at us. One hand positions it ! This is a winner & don't believe it's sold anywhere else. We may get more. Good investment. July 12, 2013
Soleil Personal Outdoor Shade I purchased this for a Christmas present for my husband as he can not enjoy the pool as has to be very careful in the sun and thought this would be perfect and he can sit by the pool with feet in the water and enjoy our grandson swimming. Thank you for this product as it is the only one I have seen. December 1, 2011
MY Shade I absolutely adore my Soleil Personal Outdoor Shade! It is easy to move from place to place, easy to adjust and just the right size to keep me partially or totally shaded. I can enjoy the deck without needing to put up the 11ft umbrella. This was a great investment and I would recommend it to anyone looking for individual shade. The tilt function was stiff at first. The comments I read and the information that came with the umbrella helped me thought that first adjustment and it was a breeze after that!! August 22, 2013
Fantastic Umbrella Bought one for our boat's outside aft bridge. Worked and fit in so well we bought a second one. Now we can have shade any time and at any position. Fantastic addition to our Carver Voyager. September 27, 2011
Love this umbrella! Everyone asks where we purchased our personal umbrellas when they visit our home. Non-obtrusive, easy to pull out and put away. Provides just the shade you need to protect face and chest while lounging by the pool. Very attractive. Very good quality. Worth the money. Sturdy base keeps it in place. Highly recommend. Have had mine for 4 summers now. August 19, 2013
Great shade, read to tilt Finally! A shade-solution that is mobile, tilts & that you don't have to affix to the deck, a frame or the house, etc. This shade is great, especially for small spaces. Before ordering online, I read the reviews about how it's very difficult to tilt the shade. When it arrived I realized they weren't kidding. It was VERY hard. I was sure I was going to break it. My biggest challenge in getting it to tilt was not knowing EXACTLY which part of the mechanism itself is supposed to move. First I thought the ribs at the top center move. No. They don't. The entire top 6" of the shaft & each rib of the shade are fixed. That said, if you notice, the top ~6" of the shaft is plastic & it has a rounded bottom. This rounded bottom is set into the (metal) shaft. It's the entire 6" plastic portion of the upper shaft that "swivels". From my experience, if you pull on the ribs or the telescopic arms beneath you'll most likely break the shade. My advice is: Position yourself so you're standing on the short-end of the shade. You'll also want to have the shade sort-of low so you can get leverage to bend it. This is hard because you also have to be under it...With the umbrella open, firmly hold the metal shaft (below the mechanism with the telescopic arms) with one hand, and hold the upper plastic part with the other hand. Put some elbow grease into it, or find someone stronger to try. After a bit of frustration, this technique finally worked for me. Hope this helps! April 19, 2013

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Frontgate. The Soleil Personal Outdoor Shade has a Sunbrella canopy, so it can be exposed to rain without damaging the product. Due to the size of the shade, it would not be practical to use as an umbrella.
