We bought this beach shade to give our young son a place to sleep on the beach. It worked okay for that. It is very small when packed, and light enough to easily carry. It sets up easily enough, even in the wind it wasn't a big problem. Unfortunately it is very cheaply made. In several places the stitching started coming apart, and within a couple more uses the floor would have separated from the tent walls. The stakes that come with it are worthless, they didn't work in sand at all. The sand pockets are a good idea, but they were in the wrong location to work, and were too small in any event. What we did to get the tent to stay in place was to mound up wet sand on the end of the flap, and in each of the opening's corners. With about 20 lbs of sand in each of those three places, the tent stayed in place well. At $25, it was worth it for our vacation to have it. Comparable products are three times as much, and considering I'll just throw it away (see stitching coming apart above), I'm glad it didn't cost any more. If you want something to keep for a long time, get a better quality tent. If you just need it for one weekend, this is a great option.
