We're tempted to describe the 8x8 canopy as being "cute," but really that sells it short. It's true the 8' by 8' is small compared to larger tents, but that slender size is actually a virtue. Its compact dimensions mean it's much easier to transport compared to larger tents, and that it's perfectly suited for one-person deployment and take down. So although it is cute, it's versatile and dependable, as well. That's a great combination!
