Staying in the shade
 from San Francisco CA,  Jul 2, 2009

After a sever sunburn I needed to find something that would protect me from the sun. This could not be any more perfect. Very easy to setup....one person can do it. Its very roomy, plenty of room for two adults and 2 small dogs :-) Very compact, fits into a small bag (provided) with handles to carry. What it doesnt say in the description is that it has UV protection, had it said that I would have bought it sooner. I did purchase cheaper sunshade and it was destroyed after one use from the strong winds. Coleman backs the sunshade with a warranty, another reason why I selected this sunshade. Definitely pay the extra money and get a good sunshade that you will be able to enjoy for several years. Im glad I did.

Here's a video of my review and setup of it: https://youtu.be/3b4im0fgtVA After our trip to the beach last fall, we decided to ditch the beach umbrella and move to more of a shelter/shade. We looked around and read lots of reviews. We found a good deal at Amazon on the Coleman Beach Shade. So that became one of our Christmas gifts to ourselves. I've been waiting on winter to end and a few days of sun to set it up in the yard and make sure it's all there and that I know how to do it. (I'm a big advocate of putting up a new tent/canopy at home prior to using it on a trip.) It went up pretty easy. I would say it took me about 10 mins to put it up by myself. It's fairly simple with only 3 poles: 2 black ones that go front to back in a parallel manner, and 1 longer grey one that crosses perpendicular to the black poles. The grey pole took a bit more care to thread through the mesh netting. It didn't slide through like most tents do. When I took it down I had to concentrate on unthreading the grey cross pole carefully too. It's really not that bad though and the first time you do it you will see where the trouble spots that it's likely to get caught are at. I expect to put it up faster in the future now that I know where those are. Due to that, it might be easier to have 2 people to get the grey pole in place and the ends locked into their grommets. The design seems fairly good. The ends of the poles are tapered a bit to easily fit in the grommets. The grommets seem secure in the webbing at the base. It provides a decent amount of shade considering how small it packs down. Also, you can zip it up totally to make a changing room if you need one (though it might get hot without leaving the doors/windows cracked some for ventilation). I think it will serve us well. I will follow up with further review after our next beach trip. We might even find other uses for it at other outdoor events.

Beach tent
 from Columbus, OH,  Jul 3, 2009

We used this tent on our recent beach vacation and loved it! It provides a lot more shade than some of the other comparable tents we looked at, and the price was very reasonable as well. It is very easy to carry and repack. Once packed, it is very compact and easy to fit in a small space. Set up is easy, though I recommend doing it once at home first to get the hang of it before trying on the windy beach.

Ordered this item quite some time ago to use for shade while on the sidelines at my son's soccer games and at the beach with a little one. It has held up well to multiple uses over the years and provides just enough shade. I wouldn't say it shades a family of 4 comfortably but it will shade 4 younger kids (10 and under) sufficiently.

This Beach Shade is the Best!
 from Pocatello, ID,  Oct 9, 2013

We used this shade on the beach in Maui. The wind was 22 mph and the shade did not even budge. It provided great shelter for two people and all the beach gear. It was very simple to set up and take down. A few shakes and the majority of sand was gone. This is a high quality product and well worth the price.

Tough little shade
 from Tucson, AZ,  Dec 4, 2012

I set up camp on a beach at the top of the Sea of Cortez and there can be a strong wind at times. When anchored properly, this little shade stands firm against the elements and gives me a nice beach camp.

Larger than it looks!!
 from CT,  Jul 13, 2010

We purchased this beach shade for use by 2 adults and 2 children. It sets up quickly and it is larger than I thought it would be! We're looking forward to more trips to the beach now that we have a shady spot to rest in!

Very cool for the beach
 from Michigan,  Jun 9, 2010

We use this at our cottage on sunny days where we need shade on the beach for the boys and momma with the baby. Great looking piece too. Pretty easy to set up.... If you can set up a tent then you can set this up too.

Not as pictured
 Jun 6, 2010

Tent is good quality. lightweight, sturdy. However, the colors are as pictured at all (it appears white and a light lime green). It is instead dark grey and a rather unattractive shade of olive-army green.
