I live in Southern California and have had to supplement this shade cover with used card board boxes as it does not provide enough shade. It does bleach out and deteriorate after about 2 years.
I bought this as a replacement for the original cover we received with our eglu-thinking it would be bigger.
Unfortunately, it doesnt seem big enough, probably my fault though as I though it would be ok for a windshade in the cooler months.
Effective screen - pity it fades so badly over time
Does what it is supposed to do, but they do not really last as the sun always breaks down the material and they then split
Bought for an original run to replace a winter shade but it is not as big so not as useful.
