Closeouts. Take Abo Gear's tripod shelter to the beach or the park... or set it up right in your backyard to enjoy protection from sun or light rain. Shelter is easily erected and a breeze to carry in its lightweight, convenient shoulder bag.

My husband and I had seen a family on the beach with one of these tripod tents and immediately came home and looked on line to find one.

This shelter appears to be a good design, but it is extremely difficult for one person to erect. The channels for the fiberglass rods seem a bit too tight, causing the metal rod segment locks to hang up. Also, significant force must be applied to bend the fiberglass rods and pin the fabric at the ends. I gave up after 20 minutes in the hot sun fearing I'd have a heart attack if I continued. A day at the beach should be for relaxation -- not an extreme workout!

I Love & Hate this tripod shelter! the design is awesome! however the fiberglass poles are terrible! i have replaced these tripod shelters 2x a year, for the past 4 years. you would think that the company would up grade the poles to aluminum or metal? the structure itself it great while it last.

Once assembled, this is good and sturdy, providing a shelter from sun and rain (unless windy). The poles are fairly heavy, and it's much easier to put up with two people. I use it to shelter a mud oven in the back yard, and it's good for that purpose - I wouldn't recommend it if you want to put it up and down often.
The sand pockets are just the pockets on the insides of the corners that you fill with sand for added stability. You use the sand in the area around you if you have it. There are guy ropes to tie it down though as well.

We put sand in Ziploc bags and placed them in each corner pocket. It allowed for more weight at the bottom. The shelter does come with stakes and a string that attaches around the bottom for more support. With stakes, I feel like it would work great. We used it at the beach and could not stake it into the soft ground.
