Good product - great value

First set-up was challenging. Once I got the poles in the right sleeves, it went up well. Take-down was easy: just pushed the poles out of the sleeves - pulling doesn't work.

Toss the stakes if you are going to the beach. I had small nylon bags to use as "dead-men" anchors. Instead, I tied a line from the ring at the peak down to the cooler: this worked well in the light breezes of Folly Beach, SC. The zippered carry bag is cute, but I will be using a stuff sack the next time. Stuffing is easier than rolling or folding. The shelter worked so well that it will be going with me to the Okefenokee Swamp next January.

An extra side fabric panel would be nice. I reckon I'll make on out of some nylon material I have out in the garage.
