I would recommend this item to a friend.
I'll get another of these, IF this one ever wears out!
I ordered it online and it came via freight truck to the end of my road, where the driver and I loaded it into the back of my pickup.
It is a great tent. We sell tie dye during the summer at festivals and it has been so reliable. This will be our fourth year with it.
I love the sun shelter it provides. It has saved me more than once from heat stroke in the middle of the huge open fields where our festivals are often held. (I got sick the year before I got this, because my previous set up didn't provide more than a thick mesh for cover from rain and sun.
It holds up to light wind gusts of about 10-15 mph which completely twisted my previous shelters into knots.
It is completely rain proof! The only way we've gotten wet was when the overhang blew up during an unexpected shower and a tiny bit of rain snuck in, not the downpour that swamped everyone else. We were nice and dry! Not any of that "seep through" like my fellow vendors got with their store bought accordion style pop-ups. Patrons actually came in to our booth to get out of the rain. :)
ProsRain proof, sun proof and so sturdy!
ConsI do wish the side walls had more give. We can set it up with the walls on and when we go to put them back up at night, they almost seem to have shrunk and have to be pulled on hard to get to meet the corners again. (We use 2 out of the 4 walls during the day.)
