We were burning up this summer, thanks to having no air con in our new apartment and a patio that the previous renters painted a reflective white. The sun sail has allowed us to sit on the patio during the day even and has cooled off our place maybe 5 degrees. Seems really well made and built to last, though time will tell...
I ordered the white square sail sun shade but the color is NOT white at all. It is a creamy yellowish color. I know it will get dirty anyway but I would have preferred a lighter color.
I think these shades look so cool when I see them at resorts. I haven't hung mine yet, but looking forward to it. The material was a little lighter than I expecting (I bought beige-it's a creamy tan) I figure some sunlight/rain will make it's way through, but will still serve a purpose. It comes folded up in a box and it is a plastic-like feeling weaved material (not as soft as my sling back patio chairs), so it might take a while for the fold lines to iron out. I also think I will find a clear cord to hang them with instead of the ugly white rope they included in the box.
