Euroschirm's Light Trek Ultra is an upgraded version of the first professional hiking pocket umbrella. Ultralight, compact and durable.
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.
The Light Trek Ultra is strong for it's weight but as with most umbrellas it's best to put it down when it's windy.
