I love this tent. You have to figure it out, but once you figure it out, it works like a charm and stays put on the beach.
Easy setup, easy break down. Will use not just for beach but for backyard fun, trips to park and outdoor activities. Easy fit 3-4 people without chairs, 2 if beach chairs used. I love that the side sand bags are attached with Velcro opening/closing for easy fill and empty. I used in 77-80 degree weather at height of afternoon (12 noon to 2 pm) and sides provided good breezy ventilation and overhead tent material kept the heat from penetrating and provided great shade. I will use a blanket under it next time if on grass to give more cushion. But, overall, the pop up tent allowed for hours of protected, cool shade. My grands loved it
Actually got it for shade on my patio!
I really like the lightweight of this tent and that it is so easy to carry especially when hauling a number of things to the beach. It's a great carry-on for the beach and a great alternative to carrying multiple umbrellas. The setup is so quick and easy as well as the takedown. It's the perfect size to give you a little shelter in the sun. I think I will try it at the park on my next trip.
Every tent seems to claim this but this one was really easy to put up and take down. No hassle at all. Used quite a bit for about 3 months now and material is holding up too. Very happy.
