  • About the best pop-up shelter out there

  • I believe this shelter to be the best of the pop-up variety on the market. It is a little pricey but it's still cheaper than some of the brand name ones you find at REI or other outdoors/sporting goods stores. BUT this one has four walls that offer complete privacy while most others only offer three. Yes, it lacks a floor but I find this to be great. The ones with floors tend to hold more dirt and debris and I just purchased the "sand blanket" from OSA that folds into the shelter pocket and works just as well as an attached floor if not better. At least you can shake this out and get it debris-free AND wash it if needed. It does blow over in wind but the stakes do a good job of keeping it in place - if you use them! don't complain about it blowing over in wind if you don't stake it. ALL of these kinds of shelters blow away if not properly secured to the ground. Folding it does require some practice but not much. Honestly, after a couple tries you can figure it out fairly easily. I agree with another poster that it would be best to keep the directions in the pocket for back-up. I use this shelter everywhere - beach, playground, backyard over the sandbox, etc. - and it has held up well for four years. No tears or rust that I can see but we usually set the tent up away from the waterline at the beach. I offers great ventilation and shade with the option of zipping up both front and back of the shelter. I used this a lot while nursing both my kids and changing clothes/diapers. I'm giving it 4 stars because I believe, while it's better without a floor, it should include the sand blanket free of charge since a lot of the competition have built-in floors or at least drop the price $10-15 to make it more affordable. Very portable and light. I would recommend it but it is expensive. Luckily I've gotten my money's worth.

  • Not as easy as it looks

  • Purchased this for a beach vacation. It was a bit heavier than expected, which is fine but also bulky. Had to shove it in our check suit case in order to travel with it. Once we got it open it was sturdy and did provide sun protection. My biggest complaint was that we could not get it back together in the carrier case. It is very difficult and almost impossible. We ended up not using it because it was too bulky and hard to carry. I returned the item and was happily refunded. Great customer service but not the best product for us.

  • Good quality but very hard to fold back.

  • I had seen reviews about how hard it was to fold this Cabana but I went ahead and bought it because one of the reviewers had given instructions on how to fold it easily. I had this on my phone but I did not have my phone with me on the last day at the beach and the instructions on the Cabana were hard to follow. My husband got frustrated after several tries and threw it away.

  • Great Idea, But Not as Practical as I Would Have Hoped!

  • While this was a nice size and seemed convenient to use with the sand pockets, we discovered that with the amount of wind on the beach the tent was being blown over. When I tried to take it down, it was almost impossible to get the sand out of the sand pockets! Very disappointed that it didn't work out. It seemed like a great idea.

  • Worth it!

  • We used this today for the first time and couldn't be happier. It is lightweight (our 6-year-old carried it the whole way), sets up easily, and folds up easily (my husband had no trouble with it). The tent gives plenty of shade, and you can easily adjust for openness and air or for privacy and wind protection. Lots of room inside to lie down, sit down, eat snacks, store gear, or whatever you need to do. I'm glad we bought this!
