So terrific I have 2

Reviewed by Happy Camper from Boston, MA on Thursday, May 19, 2011
Several years ago I had the Kelty version of this product, which I ultimately decided was too difficult to set up and didn't provide that much sun/rain protection. Then I saw the ALPS version, and thought it might work...loved the idea of a side panel. Also, for whatever reason, it seems a bit easier than the Kelty to put up. Made a second panel for myself out of nylon ripstop, and voila, more protection. Then I decided to get a second Tri Awning and position them together, making sort of an extended igloo. Now I not only have protection for the picnic table, but also a connecting "room" for the kitchen. With respect to user comments regarding wind, I admit I haven't tested this in gale force conditions, but it's proved to be fine in light to moderate winds.
