Enjoy the outdoors in the shade ezShade Review & Giveaway

Summer guarantees lots of Sun in Arizona, well most the year we have lots of sun. Enjoying the outdoors and avoiding the sun i snot always easy. We try to stay in the shade, but shade is not always readily available. John works outside in the sun everyday, all day. I am always worried about his exposure because he has been diagnosed with some skin cancer on his arms, hands, and face. So recently we purchased one of those large umbrellas for him to use while at work. And it works well most of the time, but when the sun moves then the shade does too. But with ezShade that is no longer a problem.



     ezShade is an umbrella curtain.  The ezShade easily attaches to any large umbrella.  By attaching this shade to your umbrella you will reduce the amount of sun you and your family are exposed to.  The ezshade is UPF 50% and blocks over 99% of UVA and UVB rays.  It has an easily adjustable pocket for height.  The wind is reduced with the weighed down pocket.  It weighs only 9 oz.

     Like I said John uses an umbrella to add a little shade when he is working.  Of course he does not sit under it all the time, but he can take breaks in the shade.  But as the sun moves so does the shade.  Adding the ezShade has made that so much less frustrating for him.  The ezShade can shade a larger surface area so more of the guys can sit in the shade.  The ezShade works well for John on his jobs.  The ezShade would work even better at the beach.  I really wish we had it back a few months when we went to the beach.  The pocket at the bottom is easily filled with sand to weigh it down and keep if from flying in the wind.  And since the pocket is Velcro you can adjust the length of the ezShade.
     The umbrella that John has is very large.  The ezShade attached easily to the underside of the umbrella.  I did reposition the Velcro tabs a little once we had the umbrella fully open.  It works well to give added shade.  The day I took pictures of course the sun went behind the clouds and the wind was blowing.  The ezShade detaches and easily folds up into a small bag provided.  This makes it great for travel.

      ezShade also makes a shade curtain that works on a canopy style shade. Our canopy shade was unfortunately broken in a wind storm.  Otherwise I would have loved to get one of these.  We used our canopy in our backyard to cover Jayden's outdoor toys to keep them from being too hot and to keep him shaded as he played.  But the shade also moves with a canopy so the ezShade curtain would be wonderful to have.

Buy it:  $24.95 at Amazon or many other retailers.

Win itezShade is offering 1 Arizona Mama reader a ezShade Umbrella Curtain of their own.

  7. I learned that all shade is not equal & that UV rays can reach you even under an umbrella because the sand & water can reflect the UV rays.

  19. I learned this:
    Both UVA and UVB play an important role in conditions such as premature skin aging, eye damage (including cataracts), and skin cancers. They also suppress the immune system. I think it is very interesting that is suppresses the immune system. I never knew that!

  24. We could really use this. We have NO shade or trees around our house at all. I learned that it reduces the wind coming through, which would be great! It's windy here in TN at least once a week, if not more.
