      How easy to set up and take down? Can we set it up with one person?

      The tent is easy for one person to set up especially if there is no wind. You cannot be in a hurry to do so. Make sure you practice a few times at home or in yard first before hitting the beach. Once you figure it out, it takes 5 minutes or less.
      Check out our Youtube channel to see set up and take down video.

      Is this big enough to fit 2 adults and 2 small toddlers? Is it high enough to fit a camping chair?

      "It measures 82 inches wide. It was designed to fit 2 adult with regular beach chairs comfortably. It's high enough for low beach chairs and mid - height chairs (which we use) but not for full-sized beach chairs."

      I want this for a new baby that can't wear sunblock yet. Does this provide UV protection?

      Yes our tent fabric is coated with UPF 50+ protection that blocks 97.5% of harmful UV sun rays.

      Can this fit in a check in luggage?

      It measures approx. 42 inches long in the bag. It's about 3 ft. long so it really depends on how long your suitcase is.

      Can the front be closed up, so we can change into bathing suits?

      Can the front be closed up, so we can change into bathing suits?

      Does it take a lot of hand strength to open the hub to set up? How hard should you have to pull on the cords to open the tent?

      Shouldn't take much strength. Make sure the down rods, the ones the four that shape the tent, are not pushed in. You may have to pull them out before pulling the cord on top. It took a bit of strength the first time. But once it's lined up and the legs aren't stuck it pops right together.

      Is it water-proof?

      Our Instant Shader is water resistant but not waterproof. It is built as a sun shelter for beach. It would be ok in a shower but not a heavy storm.

      Does it get hot in this, or does air move as good as a canopy?

      Yes, air flows good throughout this tent with windows open. it worked really well with the feature of zipping it up for privacy to change and of course the shade.

      Can this tent be used on grass?

      Yes. The tent comes with stakes to anchor it on both grass and sand. It also has sand bags attached which can be filled with sand or pebbles.

      Do the windows have zippers or velcro to keep them closed.

      Neither zipper or velcro. We use bongo ties to secure windows from blowing open. The 3 screen mesh windows let the breeze pass thru which helped keep it from getting too warm.

      How good is it for slightly windy beach?

      The stakes and the sand pockets work well in windy condition.

      Does this require pegs or can it freestand without them?

      You should use the pegs for safety in breezy conditions it also has sand pouches for improved anchoring.

      Can you see through the screen?

      Yes, there is a privacy flap sewn on that you can close if you want privacy. But it can be left open if you want the breeze or the view. Put those up and zip up the front flap and your good to use as a changing room on the beach.

      Not bad

      Its pretty easy, but not as easy as it says/shows. If there wasn't any wind involved it would've been a 100 times easier to set up and break down haha. A good purchase nevertheless.

      Awesome

      It is really easy to set up and take down. I am 5�?�?and even though it is a little tall for me, I was able to do it. Take down is even easier and getting it back into the bag is simple. I’m sure over time it will become even easier. This is really large (we have a big family). The normal tent smell is minimal which is also nice and I’m sure will dissipate as we utilize it more throughout the summer. Impressed!

      In love!

      Love this beach tent! It feels more like your own personal cabana on the beach! Very easy to travel and store in the trunk of your car. It fits appropriately 2 adults and maybe 1 or 2 children. Very easy to set up with no help. The ventilation is amazing. It keeps you cool on a hot sunny day. Very much worth the investment especially if you have a family.

      Well made

      We set the tent up on a windy day at the beach on Sanibel Island and it withstood the high winds that day.

      Some great features but gets too hot inside

      I use mine at the beach. There are elements to the tent that are great but overall could be a better design. Like if you want to roll up the screens, there are only two fasteners; one on each end. There should really be a fastener in the middle because when rolled up sags in the middle due to no support and constantly falls out of the fasteners. Another flaw is that the floor of your tent is also your front door. So if front is open it’s kind of your front porch. When it’s zipped, it’s seals tent shut. It is a solid piece of plastic, so no ventilation when zipped up. So if you zip front to keep sun out, sand out on windy day, or mosquitoes, there is no cross breeze. It gets really hot inside the tent when zipped. The design is such that there is not good ventilation through the top of the tent either. So on a hot day at beach, you end up baking inside your tent. If you are not using tent at beach or in hot weather, it will be great. The material is pretty cheap. It’s not a tent you should expect to have for years to come. If you get two seasons out of it, consider yourself lucky. It’s easy to carry because it comes in a nice bag. One great feature is the pockets at the base to put sand in to keep it weighed down. The open and close mechanism is pretty easy too. I would not order this again due to how hot it gets inside. They really should have a large vented ceiling designed just like the three side panels. Also should have a mesh on the front that you can zip closed which works independently of the floor.

      This really is and does what is says!

      We bought this to take on our first beach vacation in many years. We set it up once before we left, just to make sure everything was there and the instructions were clear. It was, and they were.
      When we got out on the beach it was a very windy day. There were lots of difference kinds of shelters, umbrellas and other kinds of covers. With the exception of the rental umbrellas, most of the other shelters were having all kinds of troubles in the wind. But this shelter worked like a champ! We used the supplied stakes in the corners, and we filled the sand pockets on the sides with sand. I am guessing the wind was a steady 10-15 mph, with gusts perhaps up to 25 or 30 mph. The shelter certainly swayed with the wind, but never even came close to feeling like it was going to collapse or fold in the wind. I couldn't help but feel a bit smug watching so many of the other people struggling with theirs.
      And the sun protecting darker color on the inside worked better than I would have imagined. It was in the mid to upper 80's, and my wife was actually feeling a bit chilly inside the shelter.
      Thank you Easthills for making a product that does what it says, and more. The hardest part of the whole experience is getting it back in the bag to pack it home!

      Great sun/wind protection

      We took this baby out fishing this weekend and it did great.
      withstood the winds and kept us safe from the sun.
      The dark interior of the sun shade makes a difference.
      there's cheaper ones out there but as you know you get what you pay for.
      this canopy is huge and will keep 3 people comfy. ideally you want beach low profile chairs inside and not the regular camping chairs. great item and you won't be dissapointed.

      Awesome little pop up shelter!

      Seems sturdy for now. Goes up easily and folds up easy as well. The black lining makes this thing dark. Even on the beach. Cannot wait to get more use!

      Not easy to fold

      The tent is big enough to fit 5 adults at least, but not easy to fold as it mention. Hard to hold it tighten too.
