For an ultra lightweight, packable trekking umbrella thisis an excellent option. This umbrella combines a carbon frame with 10D fabric to give you plenty of shelter from the rain and sun when you are backpacking or travelling.
This ultra light model uses lightweight 10-denier fabric and a shorter rib length to get even lighter and more compact. Made with eight 50cm carbon ribs for high levels of both lightness and strength. Ideal for hiking and traveling.

Montbell's U.L Trekking Umbrella does a great job of balancing weight, pack size and coverage, making it great for travellers, hikers and commuters. The use of carbon fibre ribs along with super lightweight 10D fabric create a light weight yet strong canopy for you to shelter from the rain or sun when you are out exploring. The 88cm diameter provides a decent space to shelter under and it still packs down to just 24cm in length, making it very easy to stow away in your pack when not in use.
This is a great piece of kit for staying dry and for avoiding the sun. Umbrella's often get overlooked for trekking kit but if the conditions are clam they are certainly better to use than waterproofs in rain or long sleeved clothes in the hot sun with the breathability being unbeatable.
