Euroschirm's Light Trek Ultra is an upgraded version of the first professional hiking pocket umbrella. Ultralight, compact and strong.

EuroSchirm says:

For all hikers who are looking for the lightest equipment without any compromises regarding quality and stability: the extra lightweight version of the light trek series. 6 special ribs made of aluminium and real carbon reduce the weight down to an absolute minimum. Same as for the light trek as the basic model the light trek ultra has got only the latest and best materials.

 

EuroSchirm's Light Trek Ultra is one of the lightest trekking umbrella's made and it is an indispensable companion for hiking, trekking or everyday use.

Although the original Light Trek umbrella is very light, the Light Trek Ultra is even lighter, almost 100 grams lighter in fact! EuroSchirm have managed to reduce the weight down without compromising on strength. It packs down just as small as the Light Trek so it can still be easily carried with you where ever you go.

The only other thing to note is that the Light Trek Ultra does not feature the built in compass on the handle like the Light Trek does, but I'm sure this is not a big deal to most people.

Too flimsy

Bought this (in silver) hoping it would be a lighter and more compact alternative to my EuroSchirm Swing Liteflex model, for my planned 2019 PCT thru hike. However, using it on the first day of my recent GR130 hike on La Palma, it folded in what I would consider to be a light breeze and one of the fibreglass ribs broke. Sadly it is clearly too flimsy to be used as a trekking/hiking umbrella.

Flimsy garbage!

Fell to pieces just like some cheapo market stall piece of trash after just a few months. I would have returned it for a refund but since it was jammed in the open position after I replaced all the bits of the catch I could find and the shaft broke when I attempted to close the canopy I left the sorry remains of this overpriced piece of garbage in a bin five soggy, angry miles from home. Lesson learned!
