Planning a Fall trip to the Outer Banks and points South. I am prone to sunburn and sometimes the breeze gets too much on the beach. This is IDEAL.

Recently transplanted to a coastal community, we are finding ourselves at the beach more often than not. This shelter gives us a place to escape the hottest times of day without having to lose our favorite spot. Set up is about as fast and easy as it gets - three poles, some stakes, and a few beach rocks in the outside pockets and we are ready to go. I love that the front zips closed, making it a great place for an emergency change of clothes, or an excellent spot to stuff all our great for a quick walk. Taking it down was also a snap. If there is a lot of wind, we sometimes find it easier to just stuff the body of the tent into a beach bag for folding at home. A lot easier than dragging an umbrella on a big pole!!

We were laughing so hard trying to put this thing up. If there is the slightest wind, it is a trick to put up. That said, once it was up the smaller children loved it. There was a breeze and shelter from the sun. It was very comfortable. Easy to take down.

Received this just in time for a very windy beach day. Most people had to shut down their umbrellas and tents but this little tent held off a very strong wind and kept us sheltered thanks to the sand pockets. Easy to set up and I like that you can also zip up your belongings when you leave for a walk. Would highly recommend.

...i did have some issues. the shock cord on the main pole broke on first use. on inspection, it was a low grade shock cord. i still was able to assemble it and use it, but it was a major hassle. i have since obtained quality 1/8" shock cordage and re-threaded all three poles with it, and that will last a long time (as long as the poles don't break LOL). the shelter in operation is great. for me it was worth it to replace the shock cords in the poles because the design and idea is sound.
i can see how someone hamfisted and rough can tear the nylon up on assembly; the solution is, don't be...it's you're own fault if you tear the material up during assembly, it's not difficult to do but it sure isn't "automatic and effortless".
There are stakes that are provided but there are also pockets along the bottom of the tent that can be filled with sand to hold it down. Using the sand pockets has kept this tent in place for me in very high winds on the beach that was blowing everything else over.
