Easy to use and fits snug around my fire pit. I cannot yet attest to its durability, but the fabric appears to be quite sturdy, compared to a higher end cover I had prior (which became brittle from extreme heat and then ruined by hail). My deck is exposed to direct sunlight most of the day, which can be brutal on anything, let alone a protective cover. It's always tough to know exactly how something will fit until you actually receive it, and the cover was not quite as long as it appeared. Time will tell how effective the product will be - but so far, so good.
