Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JP Works, but very thin material
I am using this to cover hoops on my hoop garden. The hoops have a spine on the top to connect them, and are made of light pvc pipe.
Pros: It effectively keeps insects, cats, weed seeds in the air, etc. out of my raised bed garden. It is quite good at that.
Cons: The material is very thin. I am holding it down with boards to keep it from flying away. When I first put it on, the spine of the PVC cut holes through the material, which I had to repair with tape. When I later covered the ends of the spine with tape, that kept more holes from punching through.
In sum: It works for my purposes, but I do not see this material lasting for more than a year. If it were just a bit thicker, it would be excellent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by avl Did not quite work
The cover is made of some kind of water-repelling fabric. After covering the newly-seeded area I could not water it. Water would bead and flow off the cover. It's supposed to keep moisture in, but it is also not letting any moisture to reach the soil from above.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deb43 Exactly what I needed
I'm quite pleased with this product. Bought it to act as a shade/frost/bug protector. So far it's doing a great job providing shade. When it rains, it semi-wicks off the material, which I don't mind, as it prevents my plants from getting very wet too fast. I would definitely buy this product again. I bought two the first time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 3inAvon Good row covers
These row covers worked very well on my kale - they're keeping the cabbage moths away from the plants beautifully but letting the kale grow. Loved it. We also tried it on the blueberry bush and only ended up providing a hiding place for a group of Japanese Beetles! Not good. We also tried them on the raspberry bush, which seemed to work well, however the squirrels liked getting up under them and eating their fill. Also, they had to be weighted down at the corners on the fruit bushes - the wind kept getting under them and lifting them up. Kept the birds off the raspberries and the blueberries, though! So they only kind of worked on the fruit bushes (not really the fault of the product) but worked very well on the kale. Overall, a good product. Would buy again if the necessity arose.

Does not seem to be suited for summer. May work very well for spring and fall.

Quite thin. Will not hold up to wind. Is water resistant so does not let rain through. Company put wrong zipcode when shipped so it took 3 weeks to arrive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Good sun screen for hot summer days
This is the 2nd year I have used the Dalen row covers, and they have many uses. I ordered another after a wind storm ripped an old one.
With this hot spring and summer, it really protected my seedlings and young transplants. I have even used them successfully on shrubs after early summer transplanting.
After leaving it on the ground during a rain storm, it was easy to hose off and hang up to air dry.

Good afternoon I am happy with the covers but you would have a better product if you would sell the wires that should go with product to make a protective cover for plants so they can grow and breath
