The ALPS Mountaineering Tri Awning is a great item to bring along to almost any outdoor event, rain or shine. With endless height and area options, it can fit all your activity needs and help block the sun at different times of the day. Whether you're playing games, taking a break from the sun, or enjoying a picnic, the Tri Awning compacts so small, and sets up so easy, that it is going to become an item you want to bring to all your events. This awning uses an easy to assemble 3 pole design. It includes a removable sunshield side fabric panel for extra protection from the sun, wind, or rain. One side eave of the awning is taller so you have improved visibility. Weighing in at only eleven pounds, it won't be a struggle to bring the Tri Awning from one event to another, or to store it at home in between.
