  1. needs some improvement

    Only had the chance to set it up in the yard, but I do not like the hub. Set up would be easier if you were working with one pole instead of four. The bags for the poles and stakes are low quality. It would only cost a little extra to have better material and a draw sting. Also it would be nice to be able to purchase the shade wall accessory. on Jun 2nd 2018

  2. Coooool shade!

    We just used this first time for the beach and it works very well. I ended up buying larger sand specific stakes(4) to stake out the 4 corners. This worked well and kept tent in place given wind on beach. I would recommended buying some good stakes rather than using supplied ones if using this in sand.

    Set up is pretty simple even with one person. Its very novel that the carrying bag is actually a little backpack which makes carrying this to beach easy. This works well if you are into "manspreading" at the Jersey Shore, or need to establish advanced base camp for the kids and family. Overall worked well, kept my kids form burning in sun, kept me cool, but kept my beer cooler. Stoke level A+.

  3. Good product

    I like the construction but was looking for a shelter for raft cooking". This is a bit small for that purpose but will make a great addition to my collection of shades for smaller groups. on May 11th 2016

  4. Customer Review

    I recently bought the Shade Maker 2 and cannot be happier. We first used it on a blazing hot 100+ degree day in Arizona and it haves us some much needed shade. Last weekend I had it out on the beach on an extremely windy day in Malibu and staked it down with the guy lines and had no issues whatsoever. I have recommended this to a ton of people already! on Jun 23rd 2015

  5. Customer Review

    Have the original Shade Maker and have nothing negative to say about it, just a suggestion make the optional shade walls reach the ground instead of a few inches off of it. Would have given it a 4 out of 5 but wanted to combat the last review of 1 of 5. on Jun 22nd 2015
