I keep camping chairs in my trunk. You never know when an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors happens, and I need to be prepared. Now when doing so, I no longer have to shoo mosquitoes and other pests away. I have a screened canopy that's large enough to hold a picnic table.

THOUGHTS? I like the tent. After putting it together for the first time, it will be easy to assemble again and again, whenever I have a need for a cover. The only thing that could have made this canopy even better was if a floor was included. However, it is a canopy, not a sleeping tent.
The canopy mesh is small enough to keep tiny bugs from flying in. But, because there is no floor, it won't keep ants and ground bugs away. As shown in the picture above, wind can also cause the bottom flaps to blow up slightly whether zipped closed or not. However, it's still a much better option than no canopy and if you're using this on the beach, that won't be an issue.
I stood in it with my husband and saw how spacious the tent is. There's a lot of space to move around, and it put me in party mood. I pictured keeping a food table and two chairs inside, or an 8' x 10' table with 6 chairs. They would fit without those inside feeling cramped.
Only time will tell how durable the canopy is. It's not made with the strongest material, and the tent fabric is thin, but if careful it should last. Just take your time when using the zipper.

As mentioned, the screened canopy is large enough to hold a picnic table. When not in use, it can be disassembled and stored small enough to leave in my trunk, taking up as much space as a rolled up yoga mat. It comes packaged well, in a duffle bag. A smaller bag to hold the tent poles and an even smaller bag to hold the stakes.
The directions to put the tent together aren't the best. There are no photos to explain the parts, but there are only a specific amount of each type of pole, so it takes a little common sense to realize which poles the directions refer to.
In the package are 2 roof poles, 1 middle roof pole, 4 side poles, the canopy cloth and multiple stakes. The singular roof pole goes across the middle top. Through the loops of the top of the tent and bends slightly to fit into the sewn stops at each end (above the zippers).
The two roof poles (black poles with silver parts) crisscross at the top of the canopy, through the loops (each roof pole goes through two loops). Place it in the elbow at the top corner, the side that has ridges inside. The black canopy poles connect to the other end of the elbow, down to the ground. Place the "key" at the end into the end of the pole. Then tie the canopy fabric to each pole on the side.
For added support, pull the strings near the elbows down to the ground and use the stakes.
