    Throw shade wherever you roam.

    Kelty's Shade Maker is perfect for rainy picnics as well as sunny summer camping trips. PU-coated polyester protects you and your fellow outdoorsy crew from the sun's harsh rays and the clouds' cold showers, and three aluminum hybrid poles offer a quick-and-easy setup. Kelty included a handy packbag with shoulder straps so you can pack it to faraway campsites.

    Practical and Packable

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

    This provided amazing shade in the desert. It is the size of a backpack so I definitely plan on bringing it to any sunny event in the future where I have a 'home base'.

    In the sun, life evolves around the shade.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought the Shade Maker as a last second "just in case" thing. A 5 day trip on the Smith River in Montana during the spring will give you rain, sun, rain, some snow, more rain and sun.....

    I bought the large size and it was plenty big enough for two tables and a number of chairs. When it was raining hard all eight us us were sitting under it comfortably. We even put it above our tent as an extra rain fly.

    The Shade Maker held up great in the elements and was a piece of cake to put up. It also has a good carrying case with back straps that while they don't serve much purpose other than giving yourself an extra free hand to grab another drybag, they're still handy.

    The only thing I wish it had was a wall to block the rain when the wind is blowing hard. Kelty might make some sort of attachment but since it would be an add on that's why I give the Shade Maker a 5 out of 5.
