I looked for a quick, easy beach shelter for quite a while before I found Easthills Outdoors, but I'm very glad I waited. The Coastview tent is great, a quick and easy solution that is pretty lightweight and nimble enough to fit into many situations.The best feature for me is how small this tent is when folded up; I regularly ride my bike to the beach, and this is small enough for me to sling over my shoulder like a messenger bag while I ride. The material is sturdy and thick, and the set-up pretty easy once you get the hang of it - and, until you do, the instructions are sewn right into the carrying case, which is a nice little feature that means you won't be chasing any pieces of paper down the beach. There is something very satisfying about how quickly this thing sets up and breaks down, and it's simple enough that you should be able to do it solo after a few times (though it may be easiest to have a friend help).Word to the wise: Make sure all the tent hooks are unclipped before breaking down/setting up the tent, as the fabric can rip if they are not. I did have an issue from doing this improperly, but Easthills Outdoors was extremely responsive when I reached out to them and I'd recommend this tent/company to anyone.
