Questions & Answers

The image in the PDF mentions a small end and a big end. Does this mean each end is a different width, and if so what the measurements? Thanks

Asked by: Hogie84
Yes so the small side is 135 cm wide and the longer side is 180 cm wide. The small side is perfect to attach to the Retreat 40 and the longer side is perfect to fit to the Retreat 80.

The retreat looks much wider than 155cm ? Quite a bit more than the height 190cm. Is it actually 2x155cm wide, both sides

Asked by: andychryst
This is 370cm is the length overall so it is 185cm wide each side when erected. Width/ends of the shelter is 155cm overall so it is 77.5cm wide at each end of shelter The height it can be erected to is 190cm as this is the height of the pole.

How about connecting this to the Retreat 3 Person Beach Shelter v3? Or any other product that can be connected as sun extension for retreat shelter?

Asked by: Anonymous
This wing shelter attaches to the Retreat Module Range, Retreat 40, Retreat 80 and the Compass Hub, it does also work as a freestanding modular shelter. You will be able to have these set up next to each other but this wing shelter will not clip onto the Retreat 3 Person Beach Shelter v3.

I am looking at purchasing one of these, but I would like to have extra flexibility in my options for how I can use it, depending on the situation. Is it possible to purchase 2 extra poles so that it can be opened up more when it is pitched free-standing?

Asked by: Ktyler
Yes there are extra eyelets located on this shelter so can be used with extra poles to open right up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and very good quality I bought this just before goint to Papamoa beach a week ago. Set it up on the beach and we had shade the whole day. Great product and good quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money for what we needed We got this product to go between the 80 tent (recent purchase) and compass hub (recent purchase). As stated on the bag both are compatible with the configure wing. While that is true, the large side is the only side to attach to these. As the wing comes with a small and large side, the two products we got can not be joined together. In theory the only tent the wing can join up to is a tent smaller than the 80 (using the small end). Would be great if they sold this with two large ends, that way it would join up between all products 80 and up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shelter I got 2 for our hiking trip, the weather was so windy I worried about the shelters ripping or blowing off/away, but they did not budge. The whole 2.5 weeks were perfect, kept us dry and cool.The poles were very light weight but sturdy enough to keep in formation. Extremely pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Good and Not So Good Excellent quality materials which should provide a long life if maintained properly. This shelter is very versatile as being so large it allows, with some imagination and experience, different styles of shelter to be erected when not used with other tents. However, hikers and backpackers beware! At 1.78 kg this item is heavy and I recommend leaving the poles at home and using guy ropes and a rope ridge 'pole'. This item, with poles, is a good medium weight camping kit when transported by a vehicle. Recommended with these caveats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size shelter, can use in different configurations with shorter walking poles too. Easy to set up by myself, easy to pack up and very lightweight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from We used this on our 280 tent over the break. Due to campsite boundaries, change in wind direction and privacy we chose to have or 280 tent opening at the middle door, and struggled to attach the fly to the tent to give protection over the middle door opening. If selling a item as compatible with other tents, please make sure it can actually attach to all the openings of the tent. Seems a good product, but to be would be great if it was clear which tent openings it is comparable with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Been using this for a week camping. We tried it on the end of our 360, but found it suited us more to use it standalone. Provides a welcome piece of shade in the hot weather. If you can’t have a hub and need a bit of shade it’s good value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Compatible with Retreat 80 tent We have a Retreat 80 tent and recently bought the Retreat Configure Wing to accompany it, however; when attempting to set it up as per the supplied instructions, found it doesn’t attach to the tent on the “small” side, as described in the instructions, and doesn’t reach the ground on the “Large” side to peg down. Perhaps this is due to an error in the instructions. The shelter spent the entirety of our trip away in the boot of The car.
