    Make sure you guy it out!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used this shelter over Labor Day weekend for camping in a field at Phish shows. Overall I like the shape and size and it packs up much smaller than most Ez-up shade tents. Set-up was very easy and it comes with an extra wall to help keep the sun off. It also included all the stakes and guy lines needed for proper set-up. My only complaint is that this thing really wants to fly if there is any significant wind. If you do not guy out all three points you will watch in horror as it collapses. So, great on space and shade, but if you are expecting weather and won't be around I would take it down or look at other options.

    Perfect tool for the job

    I love this awning, it is perfect for getting giving some shade or cover from rain without having to set up some great big heavy pop-up style. This is just what I have been looking for. Took about 6 mins to set up alone the first time, it has an adjustable footprint option so it can be tall and less cover or wider but short. I used it camping in a fairly windy area right on Lake Superior and had no issues when it was guy lined out properly, was very pleased.

    We gave it our best shot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just got back from a weekend camping/mtn biking trip in central Virginia. It was the third trip we've taken the Tri-Awning on, and the second time one of the poles has broken from a moderate gust of wind catching it. Alps was great about replacing the first pole that broke last year, but to seek replacement poles after every trip is obviously not sustainable. We are experienced campers. This does not hold up well in moderate wind, like you might find at Atlantic beaches, where the pole broke the first time. We also invested a lot in large stakes for sand, which is necessary if you plan on taking this to the beach. While the triangular set up looks cool, it actually does not create a very large footprint of shade compared to a conventional pop-up or rectangular shelter. It does have the benefit of being very light. You will probably not be able to set this up by yourself on a slightly windy day. It's good for rain. You may be able to make this work for conditions where you can stake it in soil, and there is no wind, and there aren't major consequences if it collapses, like at a music festival. Otherwise, I recommend investing in something simpler and stronger. I'm looking for recommendations on that front myself, as we have given up on the Alps Tri-Awning and will not be taking this on the beach trip planned for later this month.

    Horrible Set-Up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    As "they" say, people are usually more motivated to write reviews of negative experiences than positive ones. So, here goes . . .



    I'm a strong dude, not an Olympic power lifter, but I can do a lot of dead arm pull ups and setting this thing up was a pain in the ass.



    First, it came with no instructions. I'm still trying to figure out how the sun shade attaches. I'm sure this is all easy after doing it a time or two. But out of the box set up instructions are helpful, which is why instructions are typically included with a product that requires some assembly.



    Second, the effort required to stretch the fabric so the poles reach the holes at the corners is absurd. No way could my mom or my girlfriend do it. And I had to curse a couple times to coax the fabric to reach.



    Okay, I'm done venting now. I'll update the review after I've used the product, if I don't return in out of principle.

    Horrible Set-Up

    Great for a warm, non-windy day.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The idea of having three points of contact is good in theory, but it doesn't take much wind for this thing to start flailing. That being said it's a good price and nice for a bit of coverage out of the sun. A good summer day cover that packs up small. Just be weary if inclement weather is a possibility.

    Cheap, good, easy to use

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought for car camping - just a good awning for extra cover. Pretty handy for lots of things - ie get out of rain at kids sports and so on. Nice and small when packed

    Great shelter: easy setup, packs small

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had mine for 7+ years and it's still going strong. It packs up smaller than a folding chair, but will provide ample shade against rain or sun. I like the adjustable design; you can pull it wide to give more coverage (which makes the height lower), or you can push the radius tighter to give more headroom. Add this to your camping kit, you'll be glad you did.

    fancy,handy!

      this is a pretty cool little set up, packs fairly small so it is great for car camping or its handy and easy to set up so its worth just keeping around. i was recently in a wind/snow storm in the city of rocks and i set this up quickly and it provided great shelter and for 2 people it was roomy. i was surprised at the coverage and it is easy to raise up and accomadate surroundings, i.e. trees and campfires.

      Unanswered Question

      Does this awning include the "Sunshield" Side Fabric Panel for Extra Protection? The alps mountaineering website says it comes with one but it is not mentioned above?
