I love this thing!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Burner Rosa from Boston, MA on Friday, August 20, 2010
I bought one of these for Burning Man a couple of years ago and I used it into the ground. It held up amazingly well against 60-70 mile winds (using heavy-duty tent stakes, it flopped around but didn't break over the course of 10 days of intermittently very high winds). It's great for back yard gatherings, beach outings, and I've even set it up in my living room to create a fun space for an indoor picnic!

I'm buying a new one to replace the old one, which is now a tad worse for wear after all that wind.

My primary complaint about this shelter is that it can be very tough to get the pins into the feet to get it set up. I always need a second person to help, and we both feel frustrated (but triumphant!) once it's done.
