Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Super functionalReviewed by Va Ki from Siberia, RU on Friday, June 22, 2018315 grams on my scales. Packed size about the same as standart 1L wide mouth Nalgene bottle (but can definetly compress it in half of a size as the stuff suck is pretty loose). Two symmetrical vent sleeves with draw cord closure (one sleeve is used as the stuff suck with t fine mesh insert in the bottom). Two ~22cm opposite sit-decks on the bottom hem, two light reflecting stripes on the top. Material is a silicone coated rip-stop nylon, thin and crispy but feels strong.
As simple as it gets, but super functional. OK as a short term shelter for 3-4 people sitting with almost instant ON/OFF protection. from the storm, But was very surprised how comfy it was as 2 person over-night 4200m alpine bivy, combined with one foam pad and 2 backpacks! We could actually lay flat, take our boots off, completely protected from the elements, . And all this in less than 0.5 kg of weight for 2 people (pad+shelter).
There are different branded versions available on the market (Integral Designs/Rab Superlite Shelter 4, Vango, etc) but all are the pretty much the same product.
Nice demo of a similar construction here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEVb0euco2Y

“Is this product good for Sun protection also ?
Ie.watching soccer game in direct sun ”
I don't think it will be good for that purpose.
It will be crazy hot inside this shelter, Sun + 100% wind blockage => Sauna like effect.
For sun protection you need maximum shading & coverage area, more like a tarp.
“Does this include tent poles or how does it stand up?”
It's a bothy bag. Emergency shelter. https://coolhikinggear.com/what-is-a-bothy-bag
