I am very pleased with this party tent. It is well-designed and parts mate with enough friction to stabilize the assembly process: assembly instructions are clear and well thought out, though I, like other reviewers, chose to use duct tape to reinforce metal-to-metal joints. I was able to erect the tent by myself: I think it took about 40 minutes to erect the frame, 25 minutes to spread and attach the canopy, another 10 minutes to raise the canopy to full height and perhaps 10 minutes to tie down to four stakes on the windward side.
The canopy provided breezy shade for my guests. I did not have occasion to use the side or end panels.
Disassembly was also easy. My son helped me remove the canopy while the structure was at full height - his help was also needed to fold and pack the canopy. Because the canopy is a tight fit to the frame, once a single corner is released, the removal is a snap. Most of the disassembly time was spent in removal of the duct tape I used to reinforce metal-to-metal joints.
The entire product is light weight, but not flimsy. However, it is not designed to survive heavy wind load, so I recommend that, at very least, the canopy be removed in short order following the end of your party. Also, the frame has enough cross-section to be destroyed in very heavy winds, even if the canopy has been removed.
