Homemade Wunderlust made the recommendation that an umbrella is or can be an important piece of kit. The idea being less about the expensive solar reflective umbrellas and more about creating a space to eat or drink in piece.

It offers some shade, yes

It offers some respite from the rain, yes

When combined with a net tent you may be free from bugs, yes

When setting a tarp it can enclose one end or your head, yes

Anyway these two cost very little and seem to offer some reasonable protection. While I purchased them on Amazon they are available at just about any grocery and do not require stakes or the tarp.
