Used it today for the first time

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

True to size

Used the Stoic sun shade for the first time today while vacationing on NC’s Outer Banks. Generally well designed although could use some design improvements. Pros: - relatively easy for two people to set up in a light breeze - good ventilation to keep it from being a solar oven - good size - compact and easy to carry to the beach Cons - the wire stakes supplied are useless in the sand. Luckily I noticed the stakes before we left and ordered some 10” plastic corkscrew style stakes that worked well in the sand. Since this sun shade is design for the beach, why not supply suitable stakes with it instead of the ineffective wire pins? - the canopy is a not deep enough to provide shade when facing the sun/ocean here on the east coast in the late morning. At 11am, the sun was still flooding 3/4 of the area of the area under the shade. An awning sticking out the front for a couple feet would be ideal.

Runs large

I purchased this sun shelter for beach and lake days this summer. I was surprised by how big it was when we set it up - but it was great to keep us shaded during a long day in the sun. It can be a bit tricky to set up if it's windy, and I recommend reinforcing it if there is weather - but it's a great product for the price! It's also super easy to carry with you - it's lightweight and fits in your beach tote.

Is there a fabric bottom to it or just straps that connect the sides across the bottom? If not, are there ground anchors or a way to weight it down? Thanks!

Hey Kathryn, This sun shade just has the straps that connect the sides and no floor. There are ground stakes to anchor down the corners of the tent and you could add your own sand bags over the straps if you were in a very windy environment and wanted added grounding.

Does this come with ground anchors? Is it water resistant/proof?
