Just returned from Myrtle Beach and am glad to report that this little tent more than met my expectations. Most of the time the tent was not staked in the sand - just had towels and toys in it. However ... on the windy days I used the stakes it stayed put! Excellent ventilation. Shade was modera...

Bigger than I thought it would be but that is a plus. The wind might be an issue so need to make sure it is staked down or has some heavy items - sandbag pockets on side might work for milder winds. Easy to put up and pack away. Great price!

this was "pretty easy" to set up alone. It's a nice size....actually quite roomy. I originally bought it for my dogs to have some shelter from the NM sun, but I may ask them to share it with me. I have 2 very large dogs (180 lbs each), and they can both fit in it along with one of my cats that has been using it to hide out and ambush the other cats. the only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because there are already small holes in the fabric around one of the poles.

I took this "tent" to the beach and it worked like a charm! Set up was super easy. After setting up, this "shelter" is light enough that you can pick up and shake out any sand you get in it out before getting in it. I went to the beach on a ridiculously hot day and inside this shelter, it felt much cooler. Taking down was a breeze as well and everything fits well back into the bag it came with!

I'm an avid outdoors man and gear junkie looking for a kid friendly shade shelter for my 1 yr old and wife AND THIS FIT THE BILL! Heck, I may even use this for backcountry solo hiking too instead of a bivy too...
Along with a big blanket, this makes a great "home base" with very little weight and space in the bag. This is such a killer deal and people with negative reviews need to realize this is NOT a North Face/Mountain Hardwear, etc.... 4 season tent. For $22 with coupon, this is a ridiculous steal. Small to pack, light and works great.
