    I took the shade house out and set it up this weekend. The good: It's all there, and it has extra stakes. I'm 5'11 and I could stand under this and shoot. The bad: The elastic in the poles is spent, adding to an already difficult setup. Price on the Kelty Shade House is reduced to $25

    Video on how to install new elastic:


    Where to buy new elastic. You need about 50':

    I believe that Kelty will send you new shock cords.
