Must have in the florida sun with the kids. Has two zippered sides so you can close it for privacy to change your clothes. Much bigger than I thought it was going to be. Didn't take too long to put together. Great item! Only complaint is that once you use it, it is difficult to squeeeeeeze it back in the tiny carrying bag. I just keep it in an extra tote bag I have. Very compact though.
This amazing product just returned with us from a 400-mile, two-month kayak trip down the Baja Coast of the Sea of Cortez. We used it every day, not only as our primary source of shade, but slept under it many nights as well. It held up incredibly well to both the relentless desert sun and even some of the famous Sea of Cortez winds (we took it down when it got really, really windy). It honestly looks and acts brand new even after all of that and being subjected to salt water and being crammed into and yanked out of kayak hatches. Truly an indispensable item to take to the beach anywhere...even Baja. I would HIGHLY recommend this beach shade to anyone!!
use it every time I go to the beach. Sets up easy in min, 3 poles, take down easy. Have used for over 3 years. Great sun protection holds up well in the wind, could sleep in it. Use as changing room before going home.
Used it three times over the last month and found it to meet and exceed my expectatios.
One usage was in strong winds and the bags that can be filled with sands and insert into the corners were usefull. The tent didnt budge in the wind.
Takes less then 10 min to set-up and proivde large shaded area. Also used the zippres to create a private area to get dressed. Very usefull.
Bought it as a gift so we set it up to be sure it was ok before we wrapped it. Excellent! We set it up in less than 10 minutes on our first try. Very small package that opens to a large shelter with floor and front & back, large zippered doors. Seems to be tall enough to sit in beach chair inside the cabana. Can likely sleep in it, too, as it is surprisingly large. Great value!
I bought this for the beach for myself and three grandsons when they are here. It was easy to put up and take down. Love the sand bags that came with the tent. No blowing away for us and we were visiting the easy coast where was very windy. Never budged. It was great!!!!
Used thus shade tent for seven days on Florida beaches when the winds were blowing hard So much better than an umbrella. Easy to put up the second time. High quality and functional. Excellent product for the price. Did not even have to use the sandbags provided. The guide strings provided held tent in place. Just cannot say enough. For 40 dollars cannot go wrong. Can use as a tent also Also folds up into a 2 ft x 4 in nylon bag Can buy and carry in suitcase Cannot carry umbrella but you can put this in your suitcase. I highly recommend this product. Just seems that every Coleman purchase I make you get more for your money. Buy this over a beach umbrella. We ordered on line and picked up near store at our vacation rental. It was delivered to the store three days. One day early HUGHLY RECOMMEND.
Tested it during a week long stay at Corpus Christi. It was pretty windy out there, up to 45 MPH gusts, and the tent worked quite well. Of coarse, setting it up and assembling required two people, and we set it up perpendicular to wind, but it did its job. The only improvement needed - stakes. Original are just a joke, too weak and flimsy.
We purchased this beach tent and used it on our vacation. It was easy to assemble and the quality was great. The sand bags were helpful and held the tent in place even during high winds. The tent was spacious. We set up 3 low back beach chairs side by side, and even had room behind them for a child to lay down. Overall, a great purchase for the price!
After I read the reviews of this product I purchased it online and it came to my house days sooner than the projected delivery date. We tested it out and had it up in a few minutes. When we got to our campsite it took at the most 2 minutes to assemble down on the beach. This shade is perfect. It made it possible to spend entire days on the beach and not get sunburned or burned out. There is a large zippered net window on the back side that let's the breeze through. The whole thing can be zipped up for privacy when changing or if you want to take a walk and leave your things.
I wish I had had this product when my children were small. It is big enough for beach chairs, an adult to nap in, or spread out a meal...
I am going to buy these as gifts for my family and friends who love the beach.
I purchased this to use at a 2-day outdoor music festival, to shield myself and one other person from the sun/rain/wind whatever elements that might occur (we live in MN, heck it might snow)! I have yet to go to this event, but I set it up in my living room and it is big enough for two adult size lawn chairs with extra room. I also chose this model because it zips up and we could use it as a changing room. I needed something that packs small enough to carry it in and out each day, and it goes up in minutes. I camp a lot, and I knew I could also use it as an additional shelter or storage for gear. There is enough room inside with the flap zipped up for one person to lay down in.
We LOVE this beach tent! I put it together fairly easily at home before going to the beach the next day. Assembly did require two people when we were at the beach because it was so windy, but once we put the stakes in, it was perfectly secure. While other people's umbrellas were turning inside out, the wind was no match for this. There was plenty of space for my husband, my 2 year old and me to lay down in it. We opened the back window halfway to still keep the sun out, but just that much created the perfect breeze. Didn't have any problems getting it back in the bag. Great buy! Completely satisfied!
Not to hard to set up up, takes about 10 minutes if you bury the bags in the sand. Poles shouldn't have metal interlinks, they should have plastic or rubberized metal. It's too easy to tear the material as you try to thread them through the loops.
Tent material is too thin and isn't reinforced (with heavier material or better stitching) in areas that have the most stress on them. Tent had a tear in it near one of the lower ground stake areas after only one use on the beach (on a mildly windy day).
Returned to the store for a refund, wouldn't buy the product again or recommend it to anyone.
ordered from wal mart.com, product actually shipped from coleman. was actually easier to set up than alot of other reviews i read. the included sand bags were excellent for use on the florida gulf coast, the shade structure didnt budge an inch.
I'm very satisfied with the Coleman Beach Shade. It provides a nice shade, it is easy to set up and it looks really nice. Few people asked me at the beach where I got it from! The tent is a great value for the money and it server its purpose perfectly.
Easy to use, easy to pack up, & easy to store. Although I would use weights to keep this beach shade from blowing away
Great product, my son loved it! We got it for him to lie down and rest a bit out of the sun for those long days at the beach. He puts his legos and other treasures in there and then there is no risk of these items being buried in the sand or washing off in the surf! He has his snacks in there as well. Super easy install and easy to take down and store. Love it!!
We bought this before we went on a vacation with 3 infants and 2 toddlers and it was perfect! The double opening helped with the wind on the beach so we didn't have to worry about the tent flying away and there's a screen feature on the back door so it doesn't get too hot. Very easy to assemble as well. We've only used it during the one week vacation but plan on bringing it on may other vacations to come!
Item was very easy to set up and take down. Stayed in place on the beach with the sand bag weights only. Looking forward to trying it out at the soccer field soon.
i bought this tent for an upcoming trip to the beach. There will be two toddlers and one pregnant woman so we need some shade. I saw this and was happy with the price so I thought I would give it a shot. I opened it this past weekend to see how hard it is to put together. Two things: 1. It was really easy for me (5'4, 115 lbs) to put together by myself! I was inside so I'm sure any wind would make it more difficult but I saw that as a plus. 2. It is A LOT bigger than I thought it was. You could have both toddlers in there as well as an adult! I'm really looking forward to using this on our trip in a few weeks!
