Let me start by saying that for a $125.00 you will not find a better product for the money.. Our Kelty Screenhouse has been the best piece of equipment that we have ever bought, we have set it up and used it in 50MPH winds and it held up like a champ without any bending or folding of the shelter, little did we know when we bought this that it would become one of our most valued pieces of equipment, when we were at June Lake, Ca (April 2014) it started to snow and we rode out the storm nice and warm inside with our propane lantern as our only source of heat, the inside warmed up in about 10 mins flat, as the night wore on, we knew that it was going to be freezing outside so we had an idea of putting this over our tent as a secondary cover and to our surprise in wind gust up to 50 MPH this shelter didn't even move at all and was sturdy, even with 2 inches of snow on top it held up fantastic! As a result it kept our tent underneath at least 30 degree's warmer. So now we use it as a screen house in the day and a top shelter over our tent at night with room to spare for dressing in the morning. The poles are excellent and thick, it sets up very easy - in about 7-8 Mins, and with double doors and windows you still have a view of everything around you, it fits right over a standard size picnic table with room to spare and it's tall enough for a person 5'10 plus to stand in without any problems. This weekend we set it up in the backyard with our Glass outdoor table underneath with our lantern on top and had dinner with 6 friends inside and it was wonderful.. This is one piece or gear I will never go anywhere without if I can help it.
My wife love's it and says it is the greatest thing ever, so that being said, I will be buying 3 more, one for the house and one for each of our mothers homes. So the bottom line is, you will not find a better built roomy top quality screenhouse for the money, do yourself a favor and make your other half happy, and just buy one! :-)
