With 3 large floor to ceiling windows right where the sun comes up each morning, this shade has been a life saver!! Light comes through it but not hot UV rays. I have them Mounted outside - they roll up in the winter & stay outside til spring when I use them again. This will be their 3rd year & they seem to be Holding up fine.
Easy to install, allows enough filtered light through yet blocks the hot sunshine on our East Facing porch. Very please with the overall quality, very nice fabric. If a blind could be called elegant, well that's what I would call the way it looks.
I probably was out of luck but the first roller arrived damaged for one of the plastic piece that hold the roller that it was not usable. I the. Got a replacement and it had the same problem. I am returning both. Too bad because the blind itself is nice and looked sturdy. However even if I had received a good item, I would not trust this brand to last very long based on the piece that is often defective. I think they have a design or manufacturing issue to fix ....
These are beautiful. I live in south beach florida and when the sun is hitting my balcony i roll them down and you really can feel the difference. The color blends with my building and they look classy. The only thing is that you have to be careful when you roll them up or down because they might not go up or down evenly and it gets twisted to ether side but that is something I can live with.
We bought these for the patio and they are great. The color is creamy and wonderful. The shades were not hard for my husband to install. I know that we will enjoy these for years to come. I thought the the plastic chain might be too fragile, but it would just fine. I am very glad that we bought these.

I wanted a 4'x6' offwhite sunshade. The Sahara Outdoor blind fit my needs. When it arrived the left bracket was damaged. I called Overstock and they arranged for a replacement blind to be sent immediately. I was really impressed with now helpful the customer representative was in solving my problem. Using the instructions it was easy to put up the blind by myself. It works great and certainly improves the comfort of my front porch. The quality of the blind and the associated hardware was very good in my opinion. I would give the sunshade a A+ and Overstock an A+ for helpful and courteous representatives.

Great - works great, but do your own measurements rather than follow the instructions. Also the end caps & chain holder are a very dark bown while the shade is a light almond/beige. I would have prefered that these items were also light in color so they don't stick out visually.
