I used this on a NC Outbanks Beach this summer and it was GREAT. I had been used to using a Kelty shade house (same tripod shape) and was always disappointed in the way it stood up to the wind. Not only is the ALPS sturdy in windy situations it is very spacious. 5 chairs, a cooler and plenty of leg room in the shade AND you can stand up inside, and can see out without much tent in your line of sight, something impossible to do with the Shade House. The ALPS packs pretty small and is pretty light. Hands down my favorite beach accessory.
