I received a QuikShade Solo Steel Canopy ($129.99 value) in exchange for this review. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

With features that offer a customized experience and make one-person setup easier than ever, Quik Shade, the leader in shade canopies for over 20 years, just launched SOLO Steel, a revolutionary series of six portable, instant shade canopies that have reinvented the category with the latest in innovative design.

The SOLO Steel canopies feature the new, patent pending cam lock levers and telescoping legs that allow for pinch-free, infinite height adjustments to accommodate when the ground is uneven, the sun is moving, or the canopy is being used in the grandstands. The ergonomic pull pin also makes tear down quick and simple.

To satisfy the most demanding canopy consumers who want a durable, grab-and-go canopy that is easy to use, the SOLO Steel series is up to 30% more compact, which makes it more convenient to store and easy to transport in the roller bag. Quik Shade also optimized the frame design to feature overlapping eave tubes to maximize the overall strength of the steel frame.

For tailgating, camping, sporting events, beach days, and backyard parties that need shade and protection from the weather, the SOLO Steel collection of canopies offers shade options for one person use or groups up to 12 with canopies ranging from 50 square feet of shade to 170 square feet.

With top quality construction, the SOLO Steel series features the highest quality materials, including a featherweight top fabricated of Rip-Stop polyester camping tent fabric with water-resistant coating and features the Aluminex™ back lining that provides 99% UV sun protection.

As seen in personal pic above, I received:



·         64 sq. ft. of shade

·         8’ x 8’ Top, 10’ x 10’ Base

·         Peak height of 8’ 2” and eave clearance of up to 6’

·         Angled legs with infinite height positions

·         Shades up to 5 people

·         Weighs less than 28 lbs.

·         Compact Size

It’s fairly simple to set up and take down. It’s not recommended for windy days. It makes assembly much trickier. Yes, this by experience the first day I received it. 😉 Hey, I was excited. LOL!  I love the nifty bag with wheels. I can’t wait to take it to the beach. It’s the perfect shade for my family of 5!

They come in 4 larger sizes too!

Available in Black, Blue, Red, Grey and White, the SOLO Steel series will be available in retailers nationwide starting in January and will retail for $119.99 to $249.99.
