Ya know, those 49$ ones are great for one time use. If the wind blows at all its done, if it sprinkles, it's done. I went through two of them before just picking up one at sams club for 179, which was a true ez-up with 3 sides and a 2' overhang. Dont get me wrong if you can closely watch the canopy your good to go, but man it sucks when your on the track and notice your canopy flying around with people chasing it and all your crap is knocked over. Im also picky and only wanted one with vertical legs, this one at least seems to have that.

Agreed. For moderate use, the $50 one will do the trick. For repeated use, spend the extra $ and get something with center (side to side) support so it doesn't fold in on itself if you look at it the wrong way.

bought mine from China freight and it has had a lot of use. I guess it is all how you use it. FYI- the EZ-Up brand are not hurricane rated either LOL

I have watched the cheap ones fly around the track as soon as the wind picks up a little. Tried saving a couple of them for other people too, lost cause. The EZ-Ups have a much nicer quality and you can purchase replacement parts if a hurricane does happen to pass through...

Wouldn't that be because they did not secure them down? Didn't think price affected flight path??

I would imagine the cheap ones have inferior material, hence the islets rip under duress.

Well when they crumple under stress and fall apart, the straps securing it usually come off....
