We saw someone using a Kelty tent from a few years ago and when we couldn't get the exact model, we purchased this one. It may hold several chairs, but it isn't always shaded under the entire surface of the tent. The directions are lacking, but after some trial and error, and the input of several, we finally got it together. If you don't use the cords to anchor the sides, the wind will move the sides of the tent in. And unfortunately this is where the directions ended so we didn't know to do that when we put the tent up the first time. If you secure the tent with the four anchors at the poles and the four anchors for the straps, it holds up in the wind. I got mine on sale. Not sure if I would have paid full price for the effort and lack of shade so I am only giving it 4 stars. The company is great to order from though. Our first tent came out of the bag with a broken clip before we ever put it together. As soon as I contacted them, a new tent was on the way. Great customer service.
