How well does the Coolibar hold up if it starts to hail?

Once I was at the picnic table at the cabin near boot spring when it started to hail ... in about 20 minutes it looked like it had snowed in August! I had a solid umbrella with me, which is why I asked. Definitely a serious question.
I actually took a cheap one that was well used and covered it with a silver Mylar space blanket (what a weirdo) and used it on a hike to Randell's Overlook as a test run. Except for the crinkling noise I liked it a lot and ordered my Coolibar umbrella as soon as I returned home.
