5.0 out of 5 stars MM 10 Aug 2012
Size Name:12 x 12|Verified Purchase
This is a first class product. It is easy to put up and take down. It is well built and engineered and is very stable in the wind.
Just for info there is a long tape in the bag which is not refered to in the instructions. It has three small ring joins in it and these should be positioned at three of the leg joints, the longer diagonal then joins two opposite legs. This ensures that the legs are square and eases the fitting of the poles into the feet.
Very very very pleased.
Just about to order some sides.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good shelter but dont use in windy conditions! 27 May 2011
Size Name:15 x 15
I bought one last year and it was probably the best purchase I have made. Unfortunately our fist camping trip this year had moderately gusty winds and before we could get it down - one of the poles bent. Coleman DO NOT SELL ANY SPARES for this product and suggested I bought a second one to use for spares!!!! Very clever way of making a lot more money! I wish there was something on the market that matches this but unfortunately there isn't :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for windy conditions!!! 31 Aug 2012
Size Name:15 x 15
I borrowed this from a friend unfortunately, as an addition to our tent space for a week. If it works for you, great.
However I have three gripes.
It came down in what were admittedly windy conditions, however these blew up in the night. We had no idea it would be that windy as we went to bed........the only way to avoid this is to take the awning off the poles every night or whenever you leave the shelter for a long time. Our bell tent felt the wind but didn't budge.

Once it comes down, the parts are not particularly strong so we suffered damage in four separate places, two bent poles (in different sections), one split foot, a guy fope attachment ripped away from the sheet and a rip in the sheet.

Coleman not only have no interest in supplying spares but have the nerve to suggest you buy a second event shelter to replace parts with. Obviously some people have followed this advice as there are sets of poles on a well-known auction site. However the poles for the side, middle and roof sections have different lengths and curvatures meaning they cannot be interchanged. A company called LSR will offer replacements, and several others but they seem to work on the same principle, buy complete shelters and split them up, which makes it quite dear (52 quid plus postage in my case).

Be aware of the replacement problem before you buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 7 Aug 2009
Size Name:15 x 15
I bought this to use on decking in case of a shower during a party, it rained heavily all day! Despite not claiming to be waterproof, it worked very well to keep the water out, with 95% of the water running down the legs. You can fit a lot of people under it and it really saved the day. Then used it again camping as a large porch, again it worked very well and suffered a lot of rain.

Only downside is it says not to keep it up for more than a few days at a time, so it's not for a permanent install, which dashed my plans to use it as a sun shade all summer!

Looks great. Friend was so impressed he bought one for his party.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great but suffers in the wind 20 Aug 2012
By Jix
Size Name:15 x 15
We waited for ages to get a Coleman Event Shelter and when we did it was a thing of beauty. We went camping with a group and everyone loved it, it was sturdy and beautiful and sleek and everyone wanted one of their own. The rain came down hard and we fitted more than 20 people in for dinner (adults round the edge, kids on the floor in the middle). We had sides and doors all fitted and it was great - it's not fully waterproof so water came through the seams and dripped down your neck but hey, 20 people inside. Cool!
Then, the sun came out and the wind picked up. It started to flap about and bulge a bit so we let the wind blow through and that seemed better, we guy-roped it down and hoped it would be OK overnight. Well, it wasn't. We woke the next morning to find it gone. The wind had picked it up and thrown it across the campsite and now it was stuck in a tree. Fortunately no-one had been in the way when it went or their tents would have been squished with them inside. Anyway, 3 of the sides were bent, I suppose 6 of the individual pieces were bust and the canopy had a rip. They do sell spares at a place in Lancashire but they're 15 plus delivery each so that would have been a whole new event shelter.
The lesson is, IT'S NOT A TENT. Don't leave your stuff inside to stay dry, don't leave the sides up overnight and don't forget to guy guy guy the thing down in every direction. It might be cheaper to buy a big tent like this one: Coleman Coastline Deluxe Eight Man Tent - Green/Grey and use it as a shelter than to buy a shelter and use it as a tent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on a calm day 4 Nov 2008
Size Name:15 x 15
We bought one of these this summer (2008) and the metal poles broke on its second outing! Luckily we got a free replacement from the retailer (not amazon). We did have one side up which might have caught the wind. I'm sure it would be fine in a sheltered spot or on a calm day. The material is not rated as waterproof but we found water ran off it just fine and kept us dry. I would conditionally recommend this product.

The shelter itself is very good. But within 2 weeks of purchase some of the legs have broken which is really disappointing.

Brilliant as is easily assembled and nice shape to look at. Would be even better if they had resisted the temptation to turn it into a giant advert for their company.
