Perfect shade!

I could just tell when I saw this thing that it was what I wanted. First let me say that this is a steal...literally. It goes for $150 at Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, and everywhere else online. Shhhh! Don't tell Wal-Mart. I saw a couple negative reviews for this and I was a tad nervous, but I'm here to set the record straight. #1 - It's easy to setup, one person can do it. End of discussion. I had it up in 20 minutes out of the box. I could probably do it it in 10 now that I know where the poles go. #2 - It's a shade, not...I repeat NOT a shelter. So yea, it's not going to provide a lot of protection from rain. But that's not why we bought it. My 3 kids play in a little $10 inflatable pool in the backyard and my wife and I despised covering them in sunblock from head to toe every other day. This thing covers 15' x 15' which gives plenty of room to splash and play around. The built in UV guard keeps the kids protected. No more sunblock...no more scrubbing them to death at the end of each day to get it off. #3 It's light and easy to move around. If you're tall like me 6'3" after it's fully assembled you can put your hand in the center of the "roof" and lift the whole thing off the ground and walk it wherever you want to - it's so easy to move. If you're not tall, two people can get at opposite ends an lift it and move it around...fully assembled! #4 - It's sturdy. I'm in South Carolina and we have some pretty harsh thunderstorms. I have left this thing out for a month now, in all kind of weather and it still looks fine. It's not tearing apart or anything! It's a trooper! #5 - Intelligently designed. You'll see what I mean when you get it. The top of the roof has vents so it doesn't trap heat in. Our previous shade didn't have this so when we (the adults) would stand underneath it, it felt like our faces were in a sauna. It doesn't have a center pole which our last one did and it always got in the way...and the kids were constantly kicking it and the shade would just collapse. Again, Coleman knows what they're doing! You don't have to use the tie down stakes...unless you want to. The stakes keep it from flying away if the wind REALLY gets blowing - but they don't actually "hold" it up, the poles do all the work. #6 Value - Again, bang for the buck this is the one to get. 15' x 15' for 100 bucks. I kid you not, I'm probably going to buy a second one towards the end of the year. It's that good!
I needed a canopy to use for a quickly approaching camping trip to use with my teardrop trailer. I read the other reviews on this product and decided to take a chance. It fit my budget and limited time restraints for shopping. Used it for the first time this weekend. Even without a dry run at home, I had this up by myself in about 10 minutes (or less). I was half on and off a concrete pad, so I wasn't able to stack it down. Even with the wind and rain we experienced, it didn't move. Did have some minor water infiltration through the fabric; but I knew in advance that it was rated as a sun shade and not a rain fly. I think with some aftermarket waterproofing, it will serve my needs very well.

Excellent Product

Purchased this shelter March '08 and used it for the first time in July '08 on the Gulf coast, in South Alabama. Provides good UV Protection (52+) and a large enough area of shade. It was not damaged when hurricane Dolley passed by to the south, although it did do some bending and swaying. Other shelters, such as ones with four legs, did not hold-up as well. To use this shelter at the beach, you must have at least 5 sand anchors, to tie the ropes off to. My anchors were approx. 16 inches long, and screwed down into the sand. The 5 plastic stakes and the 5 metal stakes that come with the product are not long enough to use at a beach. Also took 5 wooden blocks 4 inches square to sit the posts on, to keep the ends of the posts on the surface of the sand. This shelter is a great value for the cost, exceeded my expectations, and I will use it again at the beach next year.
Shelter

easy set up

We got this shelter for camping. Our last shelter was falling apart from so much use. I searched and searched to find a shelter that was easy to set up, but would also protect us from the rain. This sheter was indeed very easy to set up, however it did not come with any instructions and I was ready to return it. My husband went on the Coleman web site and found the instructions there. Once you set it up the first time with the instructions, it's pretty easy and I can probably do without them now, but they really should have been included with the product. The shelter was definitely intended for sun protection and not water protection. We haven't used it in the rain yet, but I anticipate that it will leak like crazy since the vent in the top to make it windproof is huge and very opened. I'll be surprised if we don't get soaked when it rains. If is a fine shelter for sun, very roomy and we put it up on a really windy day with no problems.

Great for shade

We first became aware of this tent/shelter while attending a friend’s birthday. We were pleased with the way it kept the shaded area cool and also how easy the access was. I searched online and Wal-Mart beat the competitor’s price by 36% ($96 vs. $150 elsewhere). Set-up and storage is very easy and takes less than 15 minutes. Directions are easy to follow and it comes with a handy carrying case, stakes, and ties to keep it secure in adverse weather. Would definitely recommend this product.
