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.

We took the Abo Tripod Shelter to the beach for sun protection. It took 3 of us to set it up, but after we got it up we really liked it. The shelter gave a much larger area of protection from the sun than a beach umberella and was a whole lot lighter and compact than an Ez-up shelter. We found the stakes provided with the shelter to be pretty much useless in the sand - they're just not long enough, but they will definitely work well in ground soil. Overall we are very happy with the purchase and would recommend it.

We bought this to use at the beach. Even on the second try, it took 15 solid minutes to set up. The height and shade are great, but as a result of the lengthy set-up time we did not use it unless we were going to be out for quite a while.

Took two people to set it up initially b/c it was so stiff. I guess that helps to make it stronger. It loosened up after a couple of set ups. Pretty sturdy, but you will need guyline anchors on the beach if it is windy in addition to filling the sand pockets. [$] I like the compactness once it is dissassmbled. Nice carry bag. Much larger and functional than most of the other beach shelters I saw.

The shelter holds up great on the beach with the sun and wind, but somewhat to put together and the sand getting in the metal pat of the rods makes it hard to collapse the rods to disassemble of the shelter.
