In terms of overhead protection, this tent offers a professional grade 500 denier polyester top. This top is wind-resistant, fire-resistant, and UV-resistant. This last designation is important because, unlike many canopies you'll find, this top provides you and your guests with nearly total protection from the sun's rays. That's important for the long-term health benefits and for the fact that blocking nearly all UV rays means that the area beneath the tent stays consistently cooler than you'll find in less protected models.
The frame on this unit provides a lot of benefits, too. The lightweight steel construction makes for a sturdy, stable base when providing protection for nearly any picnic or outdoor excursion. The pop-up nature of the design makes setup and takedown a breeze, and five available height settings give you a lot of options as to how you set up the tent for all sorts of different activities.
Pull-pin height adjustment, superior UV protection, and simplicity of setup are some of the main features this canopy brings to the table. There are plenty of others, but these are the real calling cards of this model outdoor shelter. After you look at other shelters of comparable size and design, you may well find that this is the highest quality and most functional structure you'll find at this price. If value, flexibility, and overall quality are highest on your list, then the Caravan Displayshade 8 X 8 Canopy with Professional Top is an excellent choice.
