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.

This seems like it could be a pretty cool shelter from the sun. That's what I bought it for, for keeping the heat off while watching kids baseball games. I like how compact it is and lightweight, but I have yet to be able to set it up on my own. Haven't had my husband try yet, but I can't do it alone. Very frustrated with it because the advertisement led me to believe that it was very easy to set up. Not the case.

I bought this as I live in the desert SW. For about the price of a good hat I bought this. It lasted one season then I went inside and a wind came up and shredded it. I really liked using it as I could set it over my work area and for the most part stay out of the sun. Setting it up is very hard alone and a bit cumbersome even with two. It is large and collapses readily in the wind. I may buy another one if I can score a deal but for two to three months of light use I will have to think about it.
Best Uses: Beach
Cons: Collapses in Wind, Difficult To Set Up, Flimsy Construction

Not the easiest to set up as the poles are long and take a bit of work to arc BUT I am a 64 yo, short female. However, it is light, great for a beach day and gives 2 or 3 people very cool shade. Tall enough to pin up some towels and use as a changing room (I use clothes pins.) With stakes, it stays up well enough in moderate wind. Will be using it for shade over small tent when I car camp too and that will be great! I hate a hot tent.

First time out, we had 15 to 20 mph onshore winds. This made set up challenging but doable. We had 4 Adults sitting in the shade while other beach goers around us were chasing umbrellas down the beach. In high winds, we found filling the sand pockets only half full worked much better. I am ordering a second one.

bought as alternative to rigging a tarp over my river kitchen. poles need a stronger bungee to keep them together when taking apart/ putting together. I have only set it up in the yard. seems like it will work well for my use if it holds up.

My appreciation is for the Sierra staff that were very helpful and amazingly quick in replacing my broken item. I'd received it quickly from the time of first ordering, just in time for a long weekend. It broke and when I asked for replacement of the broken part, a completely new shelter was sent out. The returned shelter was picked up by UPS the very day the new one arrived. All from my front door, which made it seamlessly easy for me. Kudo to the customer service dept, shipping dept, and those on the phone. Can't wait to use my "new" shelter. Thanks!
