    Pros: Use in calm conditions after pouring cement over the stakes.
    Cons: Heavy. Cords tangle. Doesn't work in wind. Generally hateful product.

    Summary: My husband and I have owned the large Kelty sunshade for two years. We use it when we go to the beach to protect our delicate skin from the sun. On the rare occasion that it isn't windy, it works fine. Even then, it is extremely heavy to carry and the ... read more

    Pros: great stability in wind, allows breeze through
    Cons: somewhat difficult for one person to set up

    Summary: I was looking for a stable shelter for shade on the beach while we camp, and purchased a medium Sunshade last year (medium is plenty big) We have two little kids who like to swim and play in sand, and most beaches have few trees for shade. This shelter ... read more

    Pros: Great concept, excellent shelter fabric, adjustable height, ample shade, good resistance against wind.
    Cons: Takes too long and too much trouble to set up and take down.

    Summary: I just finished taking down our large Kelty Sunshade which Santa brought the family for Christmas. I thought it would be a great way to provide shade for soccer events and camping. My initial idea was to use it over our MSR tent as it's often too hot ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: heavy; provides little shade; hard to set up

    Summary: I bought this to provide shade, as the name implies. A previous review says most of it--the product provides very little shade, and there is no ventilation except what wind might blow under the sides. Consequently there is considerable heat build-up, ... read more

    Pros: A great family tent, lots of room for kids and a dog or two.
    Cons: Definitely NOT for backpackers.

    Summary: I bought my first Kelty tent from Costco about 7 years ago for my son and myself. As a single mom, I wanted to introduce my son to the fun of camping but didn't want to hassle with a complicated set-up. This model goes up in less than 5 minutes and ... read more

    Pros: Good coverage, adjustable height, moved easily. One man put up operation.
    Cons: The nylon material stuck to itself and made putting it up almost impossible.

    Summary: I saw one of these sunshades and thought it'd be great to go with my motorcycle camping things. The shade is compact to carry which was ideal. The fact it will cover a table or to park your bike under was also great. The problem I had was that the fabric ... read more

    Pros: Excellent quality, first-class design, flexibility
    Cons: Set-up in a breeze requires two people
