Like carrying a tree around.
- Low-profile provides shelter from the sun, wind, and rain
- Tilt the Sundial back for a taller shelter when fly-fishing or bird-watching
- High-quality construction stands up to harsh weather

This looks like a good beach wind would blow it over if anchored in beach sand. Anybody have any experience with it?
Keeping this down would be all about your stakes or anchors. You can tie a line to a the steaks, a stick, or a rock and bury it in the sand.. or you can pick up a set of these sand/snow anchors: http://www.backcountry.com/Store/catalog/search.jsp?q=sand+anchor&s=u

Anchors? And how does it hold up in rain. I see in the description that it provides shelter, but how well?
Easton has their act together on their tents. Treated nylon for the rain, guy points, and usually j-stakes that are DAC aluminum. Given that the sides are open, if it's windy, I would expect to get at least a little wet when it rains.
I've used the medium sundial over the last 6 months or so while sea/tour kayaking. Having experimented with a number of tarps, I think this is one of the best. It is quick and easy to set up, and a good size for the 2 of us who regularly go on trips. It does need to be anchored well in wind- I've changed the pegs. My only criticism is the colour. It looks great, but is too bright for me. I'd prefer a darker colour.

Does anyone else think its odd how a difference of 5.5 sq ft on the area between small and medium sizes equates to over double the weight?
There are 4 poles instead of 2 on the medium and it's 15" taller than the small.
