Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Roberto Not heavy duty, but not expensive!
This 10x10 canopy is not heavy duty, but it was only $99. It's clearly advertised as a temporary patio canopy. I plan to keep it permanently set up to block the strong, direct, east morning sun streaming through my ten-foot sliding glass doors. The canopy is very lightweight; I doubt it will last two months. In fact, the entire canopy blew off w/i one hour of setting it up in 10 MPH winds. I reattached the canopy and added four spring clamps to strengthen the hold down. It was a little difficult to set up by myself, but not too bad and did it in 15 minutes. I also bought two sets of the 4-pack Caravan weight plates to hold down the base and those seem like they'll do the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mer Give this a pass
I bought this canopy after reading reviews to replace a canopy that I have used for 10 years. Obviously the canopy I had was pretty good to have lasted this long. First, read this was easy to put up and one person put it up by herself. Not possible. It was comparable to other canopies in this regard. But the cover itself is what I have issues with. The cover is extremely thin and while it does have velcro to attach at the corners, there is no velcro to attach the cover to the sides of the canopy. Because it is extremely thin, it can and does flap in the breeze. I had to use electrical tape to tape it to the sides.
You can do better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brainsprain Great easy to set up canopy
We do not need a high priced canopy because we will use it only on occasion, however, I found this one easy to put up and take down. It does not have any tie downs or weights so if we use it in the wind we will need them. I have a friend with a Coleman canopy and the only difference I see is that his canopy top is of better quality but it cost a lot more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harry Good, low-cost shade canopy
I've used these for many years, all summer long, and found them satisfactory. Their relatively low cost make them readily replaced in case of damage. Two points of caution: besides guying the corners, I found it necessary to guy the sides, to prevent wind from caving in the laterally unsupported side beams. Also, I've had to insert additional stays to keep rainwater from creating pockets along the sides.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly Canvas is too thin
After just a couple rains I ended up having to duck tape everyplace that the structure touched the canopy. All you have to do is barely touch it and it rips. From now on I'll go with Ozark. It's a thick canvas end it is reinforced everywhere that the structure touches it. Do not buy shade tech

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Oscarn619 Waste of $100
As with any review, I believe each situation has its unique characteristics that can make it valuable to the next consumer, here are my two cents.
Purchased online 07/02/16, delivered promptly. Setup was easy, completed in under 10 minutes by myself. End of life for this product came when the canopy ripped during a light wind/rain storm that came through San Diego.... you know, land of sunshine.
I have purchased several canopies throughout my life for a variety of uses, this one was setup primarily to cover my truck which doesn't currently fit in my garage and was a replacement for a similar product purchased from Harbor Freight. Honestly I expect much better quality products from Home Depot, this was a sad disappointment.
As mentioned, this replaced another canopy that was in the same location doing the exact same thing.
To only last through some typical days in San Diego is a shame. The canopy is super thin which with a bit of exposure became frail, brittle, and easier to tear than paper.
I won't buy this brand again. At this price I could buy 2 from the cheap store and get through 4x the duration before they rip or tear from the elements.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LJ Did the trick!
Was true to name "EZ UP" Did the job and well! We live in a windy area and are able to leave the metal portion up all the time...
