Rated 4 out of 5 by from Retreat saves the day! I bought this with the express purpose of using it when attending car shows. My new partner and I attend car shows to display his vehicles. After attending several car shows and struggling with the heat and sometimes the wind, I decided I needed to get something to provide shelter on scorching hot days and protect from the wind on those blustery summer days we sometimes have. I selected the Retreat V2 mainly for it's smaller footprint. The display rows usually only have about 3-4m between the cars, and many of the gazebos available are 4m x 4m or larger. The Retreat V2 fits between the rows but is still large enough to comfortably fit several chairs. I also wanted to be able to stand under it so it needed to have good head room at 2.4m high, which none of the beach shelters have as they are only high enough for people to sit on the ground under (usually around 1.2m high). Another consideration was that it had to be light and easy to erect by 1-2 people. The lightweight poles mean it is much more portable than a lot of the other shelters around, meaning we're much more likely to use it. My daughter (aged 10) and I erected the shelter with a small amount of unenthusiastic assistance from my partner. I could tell he thought it was a waste of time and a completely unnecessary exercise. However by half way through the day, as he sat comfortably in the shade, he conceded that it was indeed well worth the minimal effort. And I will have no hesitation in continuing to attend these events- double bonus for him! Finally, the retreat V2 is value for money. At less than half or even a third of the price of the slightly larger gazebos on the market, it doesn't break the bank. The only down side is that I could not source a second windbreak wall for it. I will just have to try in September/October when next Summer's stock starts hitting the shelves and hope the design doesn't change over the next 6 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality We loved this when we purchased it, it came in handy on two beach trips but unfortunately on the third time we put it up and only 6 weeks after purchasing it, one of the poles snapped in two along the length of the pole. It’s still under warranty and so the pole can be replaced but nonetheless we’re disappointed to say the least.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good size Bought this a month ago and have used half a dozen times. It is great, only negative is the guy rope pegs are totally inadequate for anything beyond a still day. Bought four decent pegs; heaps better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great beach shelter I bought this about a month ago along with the Retreat wing. Together they make a great shelter for a whole group at the beach. I spent the whole day at the beach under the shade and there was complete protection. Unit is light and easy to set up with 2 people and still workable with 1. I am enjoying it. Only 2 criticisms: The poles are a little light and don't stand up to much wind and there is only 1 wall addition (and I couldn't buy another) so if the wind and sun are from different directions, there isn't much shaded space as there could be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Easy to setup A very easy shelter to setup and works like a charm when heading to the beach. We are a family of 3 and the space Is ample. However for larger families I would recommend something bigger. None the less well made and easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product despite some 50/50 reviews! I bought this for our camping trip as I personally don't require a large retreat. For the first three days it rained, and while reviews said it wasn't waterproof, it actually did a great job of keeping the water out with just some dripping. Also found the tent pegs to be sturdy, and when it was windy (quite strong at times), the shelter was sturdy, stable and didn't even hint at not being able to cope. Now that it's done what I needed it to for camping, we will continue using it throughout the year as a shelter at the beach or on outings. Great product!
