This is a nice umbrella with a gooseneck so you can angle it in any direction. There are two drawbacks, however. (1) It is not collapsible, so does not fit in your backpack. (2) You have to attach it to your easel, which makes the easel top-heavy, and the whole thing falls over in a breeze. If I'm working at the easel, I can catch it before it tips over. But when I take a break, I disconnect the umbrella from the easel.
