 Plein Air Umbrella Kit      UMK-45

New improved umbrella kit.  A larger plein air umbrella is available now. With a 45" diameter umbrella, weighing about 2.5 pounds and consisting of three simple parts with total folded length of 26" to carry in the luggage, this new umbrella kit is perfect for artists on the go, for French easel, Soltek and pochade with tripod easel setup. Unlike most plein air umbrellas, the EASyL umbrella can be clamped to an artist's tripod to prevent damage to the easel and its height is adjustable and can accommodate even the tallest artist. It has a silver coating on the outside that provides protection against the sun's harmful UV rays, and the black interior helps to remove reflective or excessive light.

This is a new, innovative and revolutionary umbrella kit with a total weight of  2.5 lbs.  Like other EASyL products it sets another new standard for quality plein air art equipment. The kit consists of three parts:

    1.  Strong C clamp with universal joint.

    2. A 52" telescopic tube.

    3. Large 45" double canopy ventilated UV protection umbrella.

Unlike conventional umbrellas, the EASyL umbrella is clamped to the tripod leg to prevent easel damage. The C clamp can attach to any round tripod leg, or the square leg of a French easel. The V shape rubber pads ensure stability even on the most windy day. (The conventional umbrella clamp is made of flimsy plastic, originally made for beach umbrella not for artist umbrella; and with a gooseneck which is prone to break after several uses; this type of umbrella clamped on the easel will wear out itself, or even damages the easel ).

The all metal universal ball joint is another innovative design, enabling the artist to adjust the umbrella to any desired position effortlessly and conveniently.

To set up the whole kit, the C clamp is attached to one of the tripod leg, the telescopic tube is mounted to the support on the universal joint, and the umbrella pole is inserted to the telescopic tube. A bungee cord is attached to the umbrella and a fix position on the setup.

The fully extended telescopic tube enables an umbrella height of up to 107" from the ground, good for even the tallest artist.

The adjusting of the umbrella will be determined by the artist's height, the sunlight condition, and the easel tripod height. Artists will soon find the most suitable position for their own personal requirements.

The umbrella is made with a silver outside coating for UV protection and a black, anti-reflective interior. The silver coating reflects the sunlight, significantly reducing heat, and the black interior surface will remove reflective light, enabling the artist to paint with uniform, natural lighting. The diameter of the umbrella is 45 inches, perfectly covering the artist and painting. ( Too big a diameter will draw a strong force from the wind and can cause the easel setup flipped over under a strong gust of wind ). There are eight ventilation openings on the top of the umbrella designed to reduce wind drag. The umbrella frame is made of fiberglass providing absolute strength with minimum weight.

Carry Bag
The folded umbrella, along with the telescopic tube, is stored in the supplied nylon carry bag. The carry bag has been designed to also carry a pochade tripod. The outer pocket will store the C Clamp and universal joint. The overall length when folded is only 26".
The EASyL umbrella has a double canopy vented system consists of an upper canopy on top of a frames unit, and a lower canopy as umbrella main cover. It ensures a fix and large ventilation gap between the upper and lower canopies.  This way the vented gaps remain open constantly
The umbrella pole is inserted into the extendable telescopic tube without using a locking device. This is important as it ensures that even in the event of a strong wind gust the umbrella will not cause the easel to blow over. The umbrella is secured by a supplied bungee cord attached to the quick snap lock on the telescopic tube. This ensures easy umbrella retrieval without danger to the easel.
The picture on left shows the bungee cord is attached to the quick snap lock on the telescopic tube.
We do not suggest using an umbrella in winds exceeding 20 mph.

A convenient way of transporting your valuable wet panels in a compact, lightweitght, durable frame. A new equipment EASyL offers to artists travel in style and quality.

The ezPak can carry two wet panels face to face up to 1/4" in thickness.

Made of superior quality Birch (A furniture grade hardwood normally growth in North America or Australia), each has been professionally designed, crafted and finished with extreme quality control, clear electrostatic lacquer finish to help protection of the wood grain and give a sheen finish as well as to help the wood stands against severe weather change from warping.

In order to reinforce the construction, a 7/8 inch biscuit joiner has been inserted in each of the four corners.

On each side, a panel can be secured in place by a set of clips, total four (or more) clips on each side. They are flush mounted in order to conveniently stack ezPaks on top of each other.

Wood Spacer of 1/4 inches

Each ezPak carries two same size panels (some can carry even two different sizes at a time); and is designed with a panel spacer of 7mm (slightly over 1/4 inch), extremely important when you have thick paints done, the spacer will avoid the fresh paints in your work jump over to the other wet panel, jamming each other or destroy your thick brush strokes
