I've been using the Canopy and Wall kit about three years now for a tent on camping trips. Works great. I've seen others have problems, but I think it's mostly because they don't understand how to put it up.
First, you have to make the legs straight, and the wall goes around the OUTSIDE of the legs. If you try to put it on the inside of the legs, it will sag. Use the straightness of the legs to adjust the tension on the wall. If your wall is still sagging, kick the legs out a little bit, and it will tighten up. Likewise, if you feel like you're stretching it too much, kick the legs in a bit.
The material seems kind of flimsy, but I've had it in wind storms, and it held up fine. I'm getting some small tears around some of the elastic bands where it attaches, but I use it a lot, so it's to be expected. Still works fine. I've not had any problems with it in the rain. I haven't noticed any water seeping through, even in hard rains. The important thing is that it keeps the rain, wind, and bugs off of me and provides me with some privacy and a nice dry spot to store my gear when I'm at camp.
