We purchased two last year and love the design that makes for very easy take down. We use them at picnics to shade the tables where people sit. Love the 12 x 12 size as we put them together to get more table room. This year we used it for our granddaughter's birthday party. We had a thunder storm come up and once the wind and rain turned heavy the guys tried to keep the water from collapsing the tent. Unfortunately they should have dropped the legs but left them standing and the pegs in the ground did not hold up to the wind and water accumulation. The tents collapsed and the frame was destroyed.

We love these tents but they are not made to withstand rain and winds. There are weights that can be purchased from the manufacturer but they are expensive and if necessary cinder blocks are cheaper and would serve the same purpose (although not as nice looking). I suggest if moderaqte rain starts or heavy winds to close them up. It's very easy to do and they are mostly for shade anyway. The tent pegs suffice for fair weather use but not with rain or winds, use something more solid. All in all, I would highly rate this product.

We went out and replaced the damaged canopies right away with new Quick Shades.

We used this brand new shade for one day and a night during our camping trip. The following day we went on an outing and returned to find three legs buckled and the shade twisted. The EZ UP shade we had beside it (5 inches away) was still standing and undisturbed, as was all the other shades in the campground. The company; Bravo Sports, automatically said it was a force of nature and would not be covered by the warranty. Also BEWARE, anyone in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas OR "high altitudes" (above 3000 feet)the canopy warranty is for only 6 mos. (NOT a YEAR) When we dissassembled it, 1/3 of the screws were stripped, this is NOT a quality shade and NOT worth the price!

Comments about Quickshade Weekender Instant Canopy 12ft x 12ft:

We purchased this canopy to use while my northern daughter and 4 kids were here in FL. We set it up over the shallow end of our pool so the kids would have less sun exposure. It worked wonderfully and an unexpected plus was it kept the water cooler as well! We took it to the beach and it was an easy set up for my husband and son in law. It would be too heavy and bulky for a woman to lug anywhere on her own. Really great purchase for us.

        We used this on a camping trip recently. This is great for just what it is called -QUICK SHADE! It is intended for extra space to get out of the sun. If you want something for windy rainy days then you probably need to spend twice as much. If you use common sense when you use this it will last a long time. Lower it or take it down when the wind and rain come.

              Quickshade canopy was perfect for getting us out of the sun and went up quickly. Hence the name Quickshade. If you need something rain/wind proof I think they are called roofs. Some of those even leak .

              I purchased this 3 weeks ago and used it for the first time on a camping trip. Goes up easily and quickly and is great unless it rains. We had rain one afternoon and after the rain stopped we discovered that 3 of the legs had snapped (apparantly from the weight of the rain) and several support bars has likewise broken.
              Couldn't begin to do anything but break the rest apart and put in dumpster. BIG WASTE OF $$.

                    Our son purchased this canopy last fall for a Christmas gift. We camp a lot during the summer. We used it for the first time last weekend in the mountains of Utah. We had drenching rain everyday for at least 2 hours. We had it staked down, so the wind would not blow it away. It met every expectation we had for a canopy. The rain had a tendency to puddle a little in the canopy top along each side, but we periodically dumped it out and it was fine. I am looking at purchasing more for our married children and their families who like to camp with us, so we can put several of them together for more coverage. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

                    I bought this for an anniversary gift for my husband last year. We didn't have much chance to use it until recently, OMG it lasted 2 days. Perfect the first day in total sunshine, the second day we had what I consider a mild rain and wind storm. The water pooled up so fast on the canopy it toppled the thing within 5 minutes and not only did it fall over but the legs twisted and broke so badly there is no fix to it. I would like to add that the cheaper model that was standing next to it held up just fine. I thought by buying the more expensive one I would be getting better quality but that is not the case. On another note, the bag it comes in is also very cheap, the first time we used it and put it back in the bag the bottom ripped right out. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!

                            Did not stand up to rain, mild winds. The rain stated puddling in the canopy, almost tearing the seams. Someone had to constantly push the water out over the edge from underneath. One of the flimsy canopy supports broke shortly after going up the first time. Would defiantly not recommend if you want to use it for rain protection or in a stiff breeze.

                              After the first canopy could not stand up to a small amount of rain and the leg bent so badly that we were unable to put the canopy totally down we decided to get another one and try it again. Not the best decision we have ever made. The second one was just as bad as the first. It did not last a full 2 days! The hardware began falling apart the same day that we put it up. Then after a small rain shower and a small amount of wind the leg totally buckled and the entire leg almost bent completely off. The canopy is also not very easy to get back in the storage bag, which is also of very poor quality. I am really disappointed and totally done with this product.

                                My canapy was broken when I took it out of the box. It's sold out now so I'm waiting on replacement parts from the manufacturer.

                                  It was perfect for our needs. So much more user friendly than our 12 year old one we replaced. Only had white ones before and was a little worried about the green (dark) color soaking up the heat. There is a reflective material on the underside though that really works. We had our white one and this one set up side by side at a race and it was MUCH cooler under this new green one

                                    A quick shower... and the thing was a twisted pile of metal on the patio floor. It was impossible to know how cheaply made this product is until I actually had it in use. At first glance, I thought I had a winner. Clearly, I was mistaken.

                                    A very unusual experience for me, as my local Ace Hardware has a well-deserved reputation for selling good quality stuff.

                                    Looked nice and gave good space but then the rain came. Went in doors and left it up only to find it broken when the rain was over. The storm was heavy and the rain weighed down the canvas until it bent. If you can take it up and down easily, good deal. If you can't, stay away. Lasted one week.
