Piece of crap. Broke the first time I used it, because of wind. Weak plastic connectors and stake lines. Can't handle moderate wind.


  • Pretty good design, function, and setup


  • Weak parts, can't handle wind.

Can't handle wind. 

Source: bought it new

Great sun/rain shade. Easy to set up and holds up to wind/sun/rain well. The center guy lines are needed to be attached (does not come with the shelter)in order to keep rain from collecting. Definitely recommended.

Ease of Setup: Very easy.
Weight: About 13 pounds
Price Paid: $100
