Let's face it. Everyone needs to cover up sometime and the best way is with canopies or umbrellas. I have found that it is just easy to take a pop up canopy with you to a baseball game or any event and it allows you to have cool fun time. In fact most canopies cool the area below about 20 degrees when shaded from the sun. I don't think there is even a question about what to use. Now you can always get a custom canopy or printed tent with logos.
