Summary

Great product, valuable for river camping, picnics, tailgating.

Pros

  • Quick setup
  • Variety of uses and application
  • Lightweight
  • Rugged

Cons

  • Price is high

A must-have for river camping, summer picnics and parties. Bring extra poles to create unique setups.  It can be tough to manage in high winds, but great in steady rain. As a shade tarp it is great.
