Considering the cost-factor was reasonable, maybe even cheap depending on your outlook, I wasn't expecting to be impressed. For the money, however, this seems to be a good canopy. Yes, it is lightweight; we screwed the legs to our deck and tied it to the deck railing where we could to help anchor it down in high winds. The assembly instructions were VERY poor, but it wasn't that difficult to figure out. We had a very hard time getting the smaller roof panel to stretch to fit. Each corner of the roof panel has a small fabric pocket, and getting that last pocket to stretch to fit over the metal roof supports was hard for even two people to tackle. Surprisingly, the larger roof panel was easier to get on, even the final corner. We will see how long the beautiful terra cotta orange color lasts in the sunlight, but for now (at only two weeks old) it is very pretty. This canopy does not come with an mosquito netting, nor a side shade panel. Due to the decorative metal scrollwork along the roof line, I don't see how you could hang and slide (to move aside) any netting anyway. Using an old flat queen size bed sheet, I sewed a side shade panel for the canopy, which works quite well. We can roll it up and tie it securely to the top edge when it isn't needed or it gets too windy. Replacement roof panels are also sold separately for this canopy, so hopefully the worst that would happen would be a damaged fabric panel; not twisted metal. All-in-all we consider it money well spent.
It was perfect for what we needed it foe but when we took it out of the bag it had a broken rod. We did not hav time to return it because we had an event it was ordered for that weekend. Hope that it not llhalow they all arrive.
