The shelter comes in a well constructed carry bag. On opening up the bag good visual assembly instructions are found. Following these my husband and I had the shelter errected in about 10 minutes. This became faster with some practice and faster again with four people. The construction is very clever and practical and when all tensioners are in place and all velcro bands closed it provided an amazing interior volume that has been used as a band stand, a shelter for craft stalls and a garden party food tent. One or two sun walls provide very good protection from sun or wind.

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.

For many years I have publicised a youth group at fetes and fairs and threw away many cheap gazebos before buying a VERY expensive army 12 X 12 tent. I am now doing the same for a different organisation that can't afford the expensive tent or a professional quality gazebo so a Coleman Event Shelter seemed likely to be better than a gazebo and a lot cheaper than other options.

So far I am very happy. After one test erection in our garden (it just fitted) my wife and I have just used it for its first public outing. It went together very quickly and easily and we quite enjoyed watching people on other stands trying to figure out how to put their gazebo poles together or slowly expand their "quick erect" gazebo without breaking something. The Coleman is very easy as there are just four "arches", one long centre section and two short sections. The poles in each section are permanently joined so there are just seven pole sections to clip together. The covering fits easily into place and job done.

A couple of comments on other reviews we read before purchase.

First. I have seen comments that there is a long section of tape included which is not mentioned in the instructions and the instructions are poor. The tape is actually very clearly mentioned in the instructions and is very useful. The tape forms a 12 foot square with a diagonal tape ensuring it stays square when place on the ground. Lay this down before assembling the poles and you know the amount of space needed. After erection placing the feet on the corners ensures you have a perfect square. As far as the instructions being poor I would not know. The shelter goes up so easily we did not really need them.

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 :(

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.

Must admit I was a little unsure about this shelter after reading the negative reviews, but needed something for camping trip with rubbish weather forecast. (We took the precaution of using a waterproofing spray on the canopy first when it arrived) pitched the shelter in pouring rain and and 30 mph winds, used decent rock pegs and made sure all the guy ropes were secure. Had supper under it and marvelled at how dry we were! Next day the wind picked up to 35mph, the campervan was rocking, 4 caravans on the site lost their awnings but our shelter was still rock solid. There was a few drips by now, but I could forgive that given the torrential and sustained rain we had. All in all, this proved a life saver. It does take 2 to erect.

I use this for 6 days from 30th July to 4th August for an event on 2nd August.

The weather was good on all days except 2nd August when it rained for most of the morning, thus giving me the chance to experience any water resistant property of the shelter. Strangely enough there was no leakage but on checking in the morning of 3rd August there was condensation on the inside of the canopy, which was easily wiped off. I put this down to the fact that it had rained the previous day, I did not use a ground sheet and water would have been able to seep through on the grass due to a very slight incline of the ground. Other than that it did exactly the job it was bought for - to give protection to about 20 people from any rain and temperature drop in the evening.

I have now bought the groundsheet and hope this will resolve the condensation issue, though that will have to wait until next year now. I had already bought two 'door and 2 sidewall panels which were used on 2nd August to very good effect.

The event shelter provided the solution to the suitable cover and protection for around 20 people, which in previous years events had caused problems. I had looked at possibly buying a large tent to remedy matters but that would have cost over 3 times the price and been far more awkward to store.

The parts fold-up very easily and neatly and go back in to the supplied bag, which occupies a relatively small space in the corner of my shed. I sprayed the joints and inside of the poles with WD40 to give some protection from any damp that may have crept in, however I will not know how well this has worked until I use it/open it up next year.

There is one down side.
