I was really pleased with this purchase. I needed protection for my three grandchildren and their parents for their week at the beach in St. Petersburg, Fl. a few weeks ago. This tent shelter was perfect and provided much needed sun protection for them. It is easy to carry and easy to put up and take down. It is not bothered by the wind at all! It is great for putting all your beach stuff in and helps keep your water and coolers cool! Don't hesitate about purchasing this item. I've tried others, that were higher priced, and they weren't half as sturdy or well constructed as this one is.
