When I opened the box one of the poles came apart. I called and Kelty sent me a shipping label, but I had to buy the box to send it back in. So far disappointed in the product for the price.

I used this product for the first time this week to cover a picnic table during a camping trip. We had a heavy rain and the top seams leaked all over the table. My original sunshade lasted 15 years of use with minimal leakage. I now have to waterproof all the seams to insure usability. Like tents, this product should be waterproof in my opinion.

i bot this to use for shade at my Arizona desert retreat where the trees are just big bushes and the wind often blows. It will be perfect out there based on setting it up here in Missouri for a 2 day test run with 30 mph gusts. One person can set it up/take it down, tho would be easier with 2. The only improvement i can suggest is that one of "arches" be cut higher so that one could use that higher arch rather than stooping down during access/regress.

I used this shade on an 18 day Grand Canyon River Trip (AZ). It was great. There was little shade in the canyon and the Sunshade created a lot. The dome top allowed the hot air to rise above us and we sat where we caught a breeze. It set up in less than 5 minutes the second time and with just 3 stakes withstood big gusts of wind. Love the sunshade!

Kelty's Sunshade exceeded my expectations! I use it to cover the camp kitchen. It is tall enough to fit under and have two laterns going so I can see what I am doing even at night. It goes up easily, and gives excellent protection from sun and rain. Staked out well it has handled winds in excess of 35 m.p.h.! It is one product that works better than I expected, so I am very pleased. It goes down quickly and stuffs into its bag no problem. What else could anyone want?

PROS: Light weight compared to most other free-standing sun shelters. Free-standing design is useful in environments with no trees for tying off a tarp. Better than no shelter when camping in rain or hot sun. CONS: Difficult to erect. Hot underneath in direct sun. Strands of fiberglass poles separate when subjected to stress. Unstable in moderate winds. Shaded area is smaller than footprint. Need accessory side wall for effective sun block. Heavy when compared to Noah's Tarp. See my Noah's Tarp review for a comparison.
