After reading all the reviews, I went to my local Walmart Supercenter and checked out the Mainstays and Eclipse brands of blackout drapes. There is absolutely no comparison! The Eclipse are a far superior product for less than $3 more per package. The Mainstays are very lightweight, made with no backing material and when I held them up the fluorescent lights of the store the material performed minimally. The Eclipse brand has a heavyweight, "classy" material with a full backer that has been tested by an independent laboratory confirming all its claims of thermal efficiency and light blocking. To me the extra few dollars were a no brainer, not only due they look richer but outperform my expectations and I live in the deserts of Arizona! I purchased two for my East facing windows and three for the West facing, brighter and warmer side of the house where my master bedroom is!
