We took this to the beach last week and found it extremely easy to set up. Even one person could set this up if the conditions are mild. We had one day that was pretty windy. Like any other canopy of this quality, the stakes alone will not hold in the sand. We took canopy sand bags, filled them that day and wrapped them around the legs. This ensured that the tent wasn't going anywhere. And it held up just fine. I highly recommend the bags instead of the rope/stakes provided. You can get them on eBay for about $18. I attached an image of them. The bag in comes in has 2 straps that make it easy to carry. As with all canopies, once you take the cover out of the bag, you will have to stuff it back in. I'll never understand why they don't make the carry bag a little bigger knowing we won't be able to fold it back to it's shipping size. Overall, I recommend this canopy. We bought the combo with the 4 folding chairs which I will review separately. I don't recommend them. They are too small.
