We LOVE our Swiss Gear canopy!
We purchased this for our deck, so we can sit outside even when it's raining. So far, it hasn't leaked a drop, even in heavy rain, and has stood up beautifully to high winds. (We did bolt concrete "feet" to the bottom, and we put on the ties and attach them to our deck railing when the weather forecast is ugly.) Plus it looks great! Our guests have all commented on how cool it is.
My one caveat is that you really do need 4 people to set it up. Unless you pull equally from all 4 corners, it's virtually impossible to get the frame mechanism properly stretched out so you can go to the next step. (We had to beg two neighbors to come over and help us!) Once you get the corners out and clicked into place, it becomes easy to attach the canopy, raise it up, and lock the other frame joints into place.
We're very, very pleased with our purchase, and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for value is that, since I bought it 2 months ago at what I thought was a great price - Walmart dropped it $8!
If you want a sturdy, attractive deck cover that you can leave out all season/year, you can't do much better than this.
