    I ordered this canopy on May 1, 2009 and had been using it for less than a month. One of the cross bars bent at the end where it attaches to the next one. I called customer service twice on Monday to resolve the problem. Each time I was told someone would have to call me back. Wednesday, after no one had called, I called a third time. Customer service said that it "must have been the weather". They would not honor the "10 Year Warranty" and could not sell me a part to repair it. I liked the canopy, but apparently it is not very durable.

    I attend a lot of outdoor dog agility trials during the year up here in the northeast. At dog shows it's always bring-your-own shade. I need something that is not too heavy to lug from the van, easy to setup and take down, shade me & the dogs from the sun and hold up to the elements (rain & wind).

    I was replacing an old, heavy, EZ-Up after the canopy ripped and one of the release buttons "got lost" inside the leg.

    I have used the Swiss Gear canopy 5 times now in intense sun, heavy rain, and LIGHT wind. It is very easy to setup and take down - love the fact that there are no steel buttons to push in (and pinch your fingers) when you are releasing the canopy downwards. The duffel bag is designed well and expands a little, making it easy to stuff the canopy back into it. (Note, like all canopies, it's still going to take 2 people to set it up and take it down.)

    The coated canopy keeps the inside MUCH cooler than standard white canopies. I always use the guyouts to tiedown the canopy and stake down the legs - it has stood up well to light wind and heavy rain, but the steel frame doesn't seem sturdy enough to trust it in heavier winds. (The EZ-Up stood up well in high winds)

    I think this is an excellent product for this price category. In this price range it seems to be better made and sturdier than most other "cheap" ones I see at the shows. If you don't mind looking like you're the first-aid station (the red cross) <g> - go for it!

    I bought this item after reading user reviews about this and competitive products. We were planning a trip to Hart Mountain Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, and expected rain storms for several days. We wanted a shelter/canopy that would stand up to heavy rain and wind conditions. We were not disappointed. This canopy sheds rain like a duck's back.

    In regard to setup. I set this up myself while my wife went to register the campsite. I had it up and was fastening the lanyards before she returned in only a few minutes. Although some of the reviews say not to attempt this by yourself, I found that I could walk from corner to corner, pulling the edges out until I had it expanded all the way. Also, the directions say to put the top on before fully expanding it. This is probably the better way to do it, but I found this unnecessary. I simply expanded it and then stretched the top on. This unit comes with pre-attached velcro tabs that securely attach the awning to the skeleton structure so that the wind does not rattle the awning. Very cool. One thing to remember is to attach the velcro tabs all around the inside before telescoping the legs up, otherwise you may not be able to reach the velcro tabs on the ceiling after it is fully up.

    Another great thing about this design is that it comes with batwing lanyards at each corner with pre-attached cords. So it is easy to put the guy wires out for added security against the wind. Very convenient design.

    We gave it a good test. It rained hard on and off for four days and this baby did not leak any water. After four days of rain, the only moisture I could find was a tiny bit on the name tag that is sewn through the canopy, and there the water wicked through, but did not drip at all.

    The overall design is excellent.

    I bought this canopy mainly for use at dog shows. Another reviewer using their Swiss Gear in the same environment noted that, because of the Red Cross emblem, you may be mistaken for the first aid tent. Very true.

    My purchase decision was based on generally good reviews and a few claims which seemed to set the Swiss Gear apart from its closest competitors:

    "Easy-release buttons that don't pinch fingers" - It is true that the buttons won't pinch your fingers, but if you aren't careful about how you position your hands during set-up and take-down, the folding mechanism will just about slice them off. You will hopefully learn from the inevitable first experience, and you should strongly caution well-intentioned but inexperienced helpers.

    "Slanted legs increase stability" - Possibly (see next point), but if you acquire the optional side curtains (and you will almost certainly want at least one), they are cut in such a way as to force you to straighten the legs in a way that feels "wrong".

    "Batwings and guyouts for added stability in windy conditions" - Good idea, lacking on most comparable canopies. You will want to stake the unit in all but the gentlest conditions, as a sudden gust will induce lift-off. Some canopies have a pressure relief flap, allowing a gust to vent out the top. In a side-by-side comparison, those canopies performed better than the Swiss Gear in breezy conditions, without staking.

    "Dual stabilizer arms in each corner provide added eave support" - I had hoped this meant that the frame of the Swiss Gear would be markedly better than the flimsy construction evident on competing units. It isn't. The frame construction is very similar to all the other low-cost canopies I've seen.
