    After placing my order, I received the Otentik shade 2 days later – very promptly, thanks Lifestyle gear! I have used it twice since and love it! Easy to transport to your site, easy to put up, adjust, and pack away. People have commented on it as they pass, and looks so much better than the other options. Yes it isn’t the cheapest out there, but you get what you pay, and this product is worth the investment. When I swim I’m not worried if it has blown down the beach. Buy It!
