ALPS Mountaineering Tri-Awning by Alps M

Verified Buyer Reviewed by AK from San Jose, CA on Friday, September 16, 2011
I used to have a 10*10 metal frame shade. It was too heavy to carry. They are made with wheels now, but still it is too heavy, and difficult to setup by one person. (But if you have two people, and weight is not a problem, then I would prefer it)

So I was looking for a shade for 4 people, chairs, food cooler, and small portable table that would be relatively light, compact, and for one person setup. We use is at the lake to provide shade for our family.

This seems to fit all my criteria.

I tried to set it up in my back yard, and so far am happy with the purchase. The setup is not supper easy, but possible with one person. Do count on needing about 25 feet by 25 feet space available for setup/breakup. But when setup, then only need about 13 to 15 feet, which is fair, to shade enough space for all the things I want to shade.
