I brought one before last deer season and it came in handy.
It rained hard and was fairly windy but I stayed dry underneath.
Since I was on public ground you are not suppose to screw anything into the tree to hold up the umbrella, which is what you need to do. I took along a 4" cut of a 1"X3" and a 1" ratchet strap to screw the mounting bracket, then you have 3 tie's that conforms the umbrella to the tree.
Kept me, a backpack, Thermos, cushion and rifle dry. Sets up in seconds and the instructions claim you can also use it as a ground blind. It was big enough so I see no reason why you couldn't.
For what I paid even if it lasts only 2 seasons it was worth the investment already.
