I think it will be wonderful on the beach or the lake, I intend to find
out soon. ACK, shipping is excellent. They are my only go to place with
my kayak and camping needs.
This shade is enormous! I was surprised at how big it really was.
At first I had issues setting it up but then I read the directions and
it was incredibly simple. (Hard headed) . It comes with stakes to
stake it into things such as soil and bags on each corner that you
can fill and bury in sand for the beach outtings. I love how multi-
purpose it is. It's also very light weight to have to carry around. I
am very impressed with this item and glad I purchased!
The eureka shelter works very well on the beach, but you will need
three people to set it up if it is windy. I used pet tie out screw in
anchors which worked very well to hold it in place instead of the sand
bags. Overall , a very good product at a very good price from ACK.
Would buy again without hesitation.
This is a great tent! Put it up at least once before you take it to the
beach though. Very simple to put up. Took about 10 minutes at
beach but it will be less when we get the hang of it. Plenty of room
too. Can actually change in it too! We left to get breakfast and
zippered it up. Great fun and you can spot it on the beach with no
trouble. No one has anything like this..great colors. Windy when
we took it down so next time will zipper it closed. It will make it
easier to put away. Have fun!
Great size, not too big not too
small, perfect to stretch out on
the beach. Love the colors,
bright and summery. I
expected a more difficult
setup, but it was compratively
I already knew how great this tent was because a friend of mine has one... it's
wonderfully easy to set up and take down. My only reservation is that it doesn't
allow enough ventilation; even though the tent is 'open', it can get pretty stuffy
amd warm under the canopy unless there's a breeze, and the tiny windows don't
help. I drape a sun-shade over the back to cut down on the heat. I use it for
outdoor dog shows, and the size is perfect for my folding pen to hold my 3
Westies and my folding chair.
I bought this for use as an
astronomy tent. It provides
about 1/3 of the sky for
viewing, and keeps the dew
and breezes at bay. I'm happy
I got it as it does what was
As for wind resistance, I tried
sand bags inside at the four
corners; maybe 25 to 30
pounds each. Otherwise it is
free standing. Works great!
Had it out in 30 + mph winds.
