    Default Big Umbrellas

    A few years back, a couple dog training supply sites, sold a very large camo umbrella, app: 3.5' x 4.5'
    They were ideal solutions to portable retired gun blinds and came in 3 different camo patterns.

    Over the past 2 months, I have hunted for something similar and cannot find any like this. Everyone sell the standard camo umbrellas, but not these oversized ones.

    Any suggestions as to a retailer or manufacturer, would be appreciated.

    I just wish they used to make umbrellas like the "old timers" have ! With metal instead of plastic. Just a few minutes of wind collapsing the catch and it wears out (or worse). Then the plastic ribs snap just from the force a bit later!

    Mine did not last. It was also a beast to control in the wind, due to its very large size.
