Well-crafted Although Not Really Square
By boogaloo from Seattle

"Although this is a four-sided shade sail, it is not really square. The photos on the website do show that the perimeters are curved, which is exactly how they are. That is not an adverse factor, just so that anybody who thought it might throw a square shadow will not be disappointed. It appears well-crafted and really should serve you for a very long time. I am very happy with the build and construction."

Great Product
By avatar from Columbia

I purchased this square sail shade this past year and it still looks fantastic. It's pretty simple to install but you'll need someone else to assist. The turnbuckles provided being an optional extra are a little tricky but get the job done of correctly tensioning the sail. Really does add some style to my deck.

"Top Quality, Looks Good"
By brendan from Orlando

"It appears good when installed and that we have experienced plenty of favourable comments from buddies and neighbours. Top quality construction, it will last a long time."

Excellent Shade
By Bobbie from Huron

Excellent shading too soon to discuss quality/sturdiness.

Square Shade Sail
By Guili from San Diego

This really is value. Just a little tricky to set up but nonetheless the Sail seems to be top quality! Hardware is alright. You might want to buy extra hardware to suit your particular installation.

Mounting Issues
By Zukra from Charleston

No difficulties with the product itself. It had been well made but make certain you have done your homework and have four locations to which you'll attach the 4 corners!

Great Product
By Alois from Washington DC

"We tried a few umbrellas to cover our patio area and each kept breaking! This sail shade looks great, which covers the area beautifully! It is very good quality and easy to put up. We all love it!"

By Xanas from Toronto

"This sail shade material is the greatest! I've had one over my terrace within the last year and it is still fine. Has made it through wind, rain, hail and hot sun."

By Roane from Minneapolis

I have had one over my terrace for the past 18 months and it's still in great shape.
