Recommend A screen tent/ sun shade tent

I don't know where to put this thread, would someone direct me to it?

I am looking for recommendation of a screen tent or a sun shade style tent to put over a picnic table during summer camping.

I realize there are many bugs/wasps or mosquitos if we want to eat in peace or get away from hot sun.

Can you let me know which style or what brand is most popular and reliable as I don't want something crappy that will collapse or break after 3 usage or mild windy day. I have seen some for sale at London drugs at the end of summer but didn't buy since I don't know if it is any good. My budget is about $100 (if that is enough)

$100 budget for a canopy with screen... You can't complain about getting a crappy one because that's what you'll get, the cheapest of the cheap. I was in Wal Mart the other day and the canopy's were about $90 and canopy's with netting were $130'ish.

That being said, don't smash it around and be relatively gentle with it while setting it up and there's no reason it shouldn't last you for all the outings you'll need it for.
