Lasted literally 45 minutes

I set this up for the first time this weekend on a WI camping trip under very light wind and rain. I liked the ground strap system, but that is all I liked I was noticing how it didn't seem to cover much when a small puff of wind came up, caused the back side to bend a bit and instantly snapped one of the 3 poles! I mean, this was not a big puff either. The "shelter" had been standing less than 45 minutes. Even though it must have been a defective pole I did not like how unstable this was in light wind. It didn't even provide enough shade/over for an entire picnic table. Assembly was very cumbersome too. The pins were hard to fit into the bottom of the poles. Poor design, questionable materials. Keep looking. Kelty made one of these a few years back that was AWESOME. This one isn't even close.
