I purchased this product because it always rains when my husband & I go camping. Though we always have a tarp to put up over the picnic table, we have had issues with having trees large enough to use as attaching points (unless we use a LOT of rope. I was skeptical about this product after I read the reviews but ordered it anyway since the price was definetly right. It arrived the day before we left for a four day camping trip, so there was no time for a trial run in the back yard. We arrived at the campground & set up the tent & started a fire. While our supper was cooking we put this up......with the light from a small fire, a headlamp with low batteries in about fifteen minutes. Bonus, it kept the picnic table & everything on it dry when it rained the next afternoon. We plan on taking it every time we go camping (though I doubt either of us will want to carry it when we are backpacking).
