I love this sun shelter! It really is easy to get set up for use. It took me about 8 minutes with my 6-month-old strapped to me in his carrier to get it out, up and secured from blowing away if the wind were to blow hard enough. Anything that easy to set up with a baby involved is a great item in my book! But there is so much more about this that I am happy with in addition to the ease of setting it up for use.This tent combined with sunscreen has kept my Son, my Daughter and Myself from getting fried by the sun more than a few times now. It is a wonderful shelter to protect your skin while still enjoying being outdoors. It is easily portable and can be used anywhere outdoors that you might need comfortable and protective shelter from the sun. The windows offer great cross ventilation! The windows can all be closed as well as the "door" in order for you to easily change in privacy at the beach or at the lake. It could also be used as a camping tent if you didn't have anything else available. (I don't know that it would stay dry inside in a storm but it would provide shelter in good weather for an overnight camping trip.) It is actually easy to get back in the bag! Which anyone with experience with any tent knows that getting a tent BACK in any bag that it came in is almost impossible!
I would purchase this item again if I had to! It has already added to my families life and enjoyment of the outdoors.
If I had to choose one thing to suggest as an improvement it would be that there needs to be a few added inside storage pockets but I can live happily with this just as it is honestly! I'm happy with this purchase!
I'd recommend this for sure! Anyone with children or concern with extended exposure to the suns UV rays can benefit from owning this beach tent.
I wish anyone reading this good luck in their shopping adventures and I hope that my review might help someone else make a good decision.
