sending it back

Verified Buyer Reviewed by patapsco biker from Baltimore, MD on Sunday, July 22, 2012
I generally opt not to write negative reviews but I think someone might benefit from this. The overall shaded area is quite small, really only good for one person and that is when the sun is directly overhead. The poles were cheap, and what made it difficult to set up is that the bungee inside was so weak that I couldn't just "snap" the poles out and have them engage automatically like with other tent poles I've had. Then, worse yet, they didn't stay engaged while threading in the sleeves, and even more frustrating when taking the structure down. Lastly, With relatively poor ventilation, this was a heat trap in the sun. Maybe on a more windy day it would be fine, but it wasn't the day that I tried it out. After my initial setup the day it arrived I immediately boxed it back up and will send it back, even though it will cost me $6 to send it back when it only cost [$]
