Kelty designed its Shade Maker to pack down small and set up quickly so you can take it to picnics, festivals, and beaches and bring it along on camping trips. Its polyester fly has taped seams to resist water so you can set up your chairs underneath to sit out a quick drizzle. The DAC Hybrid poles clip into this shelter and slide through the sleeves easily so you can get to the fun part of the day sooner. The guylines have their own pockets to keep everything nice and organized. The tote comes in a briefcase style for easy transportation.
