A couple of years ago I went to an outdoor evening concert and although the music was great the weather put a dampener on things - it was too windy to sit still and enjoy the event. I remember thinking that what I needed was some kind of shelter which could easily be carried and assembled, but which would still let me see what's going on. Well, here it is!
I bought this on a whim having had that previous experience but I have to say that I'm very glad that I did. Sizewise it's big enough to easily fit two seated adults in deckchairs, but still folds down and packs away into the supplied carry case within minutes and best of all it's light enough to carry without a struggle. It seems to be extremely well made with lots of thought going into the details - there are even straps on the sides to fasten the zipped fabric for the windows. It also has two lots of pegs and strings to secure it to the ground in the wind - in fact the only thing it might need that is not included would be a mallet.
I have since seen a cheaper version of this shelter from another manufacturer in a local store but the design was not up to the same standards, nor the attention to detail and I do not regret having paid that bit extra for this model. Originally I did have some reservations about how good this might be - especially since it had been an unplanned purchase, but they soon went when I'd saw how good this actually is. Excellent.
