could be worse, could be better

I was looking for a light weight shelter, and this is that. The set up is a bit cumbersome, and definitely requires at least two people and a lot of space for assembling the poles. It is large-- good space and shade-- and provides protection in the rain as long as the wind doesn't drive the rain under the shelter. However, we have found that putting it up and taking it down is hard if there isn't a lot of space, (i.e., if we are in a place with a lot of other people.) We have taken it to the beach, and the beach winds, (average, not unusually strong,) caused the seams to rip. Overall, the item isn't terrible, but I wouldn't buy it again.
