Default Sun shelter

I had back to back jobs in direct sun. It kicked my arse. I am think about buying a canopy or umbrella. I don't want something that is too much hassle. But a little shade would make me more efficient.

Y'all got any ideas? Couple sticks of pipe and a tarp?

I have an umbrella in the van and a hard surface holder for it. Works great

This looks like something I would use.

In the colder climates the sides would be an added bonus.


(An easy-up is what I was trying to show.)

Harbor Freight has 6' umbrellas for $8 I think I'll try a couple. For $8 who cares how long they last? For bigger, long term jobs I have some fittings and tarps from Shade King in Texas, just cut your own EMT and put it together. Takes longer than a EZ up but costs less and won't fall apart.
