Since this is designed and marketed as a portable soccer goal, let me first address its portability. It folds *very* thin. So thin that I thought the delivery box was empty. The virtually flat box was barely a centimeter thick (less than half an inch), including the cardboard. Unsurprisingly, the goal is also very light. Thankfully (so far), this lightweight design has not compromised its manufacture, though I worry that a child may fold it improperly and thus warp (or break) the fiberglass poles.
The SKLZ Goal-EE is very attractive and, for the most part, equally functional. The only downsides that I see so far are:
First, the goal is so lightweight that kicking a ball into it will move the goal around your lawn. Thankfully, stakes are included (in a hidden pocket inside the carrying case). Admittedly, staking down the goal each time compromises the advertised "quick set up and break down" of this product. This small complaint is in my opinion more than offset by the super slim stored profile of this goal. We plan to keep this in the car along with an extra soccer ball.
Second, folding or unfolding the goal could result in it snapping open, since the folding mechanism is under pressure. So be alert** and keep your face a safe distance back. As well, the folding itself could be slightly counterintuitive to some people, at least until they do it a few times.
** I just noticed that the product card includes this CAUTION: The Goal-EE goal is designed to open and close quickly. Use caution when opening and closing.
