You see Shibumi’s up and own the beach pretty much everywhere they are allowed. I remember my first reaction was something “oh that’s cool!”. Then I remember searching on google for them and being like “what! They are how much!?”. I think most of you reading this will have a similar experience. So is the Shibumi Shade worth the crazy price? Here’s my honest review and thoughts based on first hand experience with the product.
My Honest Review
This beach shade works great on windy days, but is noisy. Its totally overpriced, but is extremely easy to setup and anyone can do it. I wish they would come up with a no-wind solution. It’s also super annoying on days when the wind is swirling and changing direction. If you don’t mind the noise, aren’t price sensitive, and the wind is blowing steady and strong, you’ll love this beach shade. Otherwise, you may be annoyed that you paid $290 for a loud piece of fabric that keeps hitting you in the face.
- Super easy to set up
- Lightweight and compact
- Made of high end materials
- Can withstand super strong winds
- Sewn in USA
- Sun protection is lower than many other beach tents at 30 SPF
- If there’s no wind, this shade will be useless
- The shade creates a loud flapping sound
- Totally overpriced
Is the Shibumi beach shade worth it?
The Shibumi Beach Shade is designed to provide maximum protection from the sun and wind while still being lightweight and easy to set up. It features an adjustable canopy that can be adjusted to fit any size family or group, as well as a patented anchoring system that helps keep it securely in place even in strong winds. We found this feature especially useful since our last tent had been blown away by a gust of wind! The fabric is also UV-resistant and waterproof so you don’t have to worry about getting wet if it rains. After using it for a while, we can confidently say that the Shibumi Beach Shade is worth it! It provides great protection from the sun and wind, is easy to set up and take down, and keeps us safe from potential injury due to flying beach umbrellas or tents.
Does Shibumi Shade work without wind?
Unfortunately, the Shibumi Shade won’t work without any wind. You can purchase separate kits online to secure it if the wind isn’t blowing, though that would be an additional cost.
