Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best $50 i ever spent! I brought this last weekend after eyeing it up since last summer. I wish i brought it last summer now! It has completely revolutionized our time at the beach! My partner and i are both pasty white and burn so easily so we often left the beach after half and hour as we just get roasted in the sun. Yesterday we spent about 5 hours at the beach and enjoyed our time so much more without worrying about burning. My partner was worried about the rays coming through the fabric but we looked it up on here and of course kathmandu comes through with the win! The fabric is ultraviolet protection factor 50. (Lets one fiftyth of the rays through. So you can sit under it for 50 mins and it would be like sitting in the full sun for 1min! So good!) This shade was so easy to put up (maybe 2mins) the sand pockets hold it firmly in place, and its the perfect size for 2. We can both lay down long ways in this in the shade. Its not too big to cary and the storage pockets are great for storing phones, sunblock, speakers for easy finding. Also its super nice to have your own little area and some level of privacy and storage of your gear at the beach. Thank you kathmandu for letting us enjoy the beach again while protecting our skin! If you're thinking about buying this just do it! You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shade, stable in any condition! I bought this a few weeks ago and have been using on the beach during this Summer. Quite happy with the shade it provides, and most importantly: how stable it is in any wind conditions, thanks to the sand bags that are part of the rig! Really clever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money! I've had this for 2 years already and still very useful. My only concern that it gets too hot while you are inside during sunny days. I'm not sure whether the color I've chosen (red/grey) has something to do with it. I wonder if the the dark blue variant is better at blocking heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and big enough for 3 New to sun shelters and boy are they better than flying umbrellas! The Retreat 3 person beach shelter is easy to put up and down. It’s easier with two people when inserting the poles but I think I could manage in my own if need be. We use large zip lock bags filled with sand to weight it down during installation and for a bit of extra protection from the wind. The few down sides are the shelter isn’t very high when erected and when sitting inside on a low to ground beach chair (and I mean very low to the ground) you need to be centred and towards the front so you don’t touch the top with your head. This forces you out of the shade depending on where the sun is. I am only 160cm and I just fit so if you are taller and want to sit on something inside the shelter you would almost certainly touch the top. The floor base is a dark grey colour and the outer section that gets the full sun is unbearably hot to touch on a hot day so we have been putting our beach mat over this area to stop any burnt feet. The only other thing is there isn’t enough ventilation, it has two very small triangles on the sides that have a pop up insert to hold them open. A proper decent size mesh opening like the bigger version but in proportion to it’s size would be much better because it can get hot inside when there is not much of a breeze. Would I buy this again? Yes for it’s ease and size because they both go hand in hand. I can live with being centred in the shelter and with the limited ventilation, it would just be better with more. I saw the large size of this same shelter on the beach and it obviously has a lot more height, you could stand inside in parts and ventilation is so much better but it’s too big for what I need and I would definitely need help putting it up and sometimes that isn’t an option and I expect putting it away would be a bit harder too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bloody Marvellous! Bought the shelter a month ago and have used it a bunch of times at the beach, lake and as a windbreak. It’s easy to set up and you only need the guy ropes if it’s crazy windy, otherwise sand or rocks in the designated pockets works a charm. You can also zip half of it up to change or, like us, get a baby to sleep without wind ruining it! A++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better and much bigger than the price suggest I love this shelter. It’s easy to set up and light to carry, but provides plenty of room for my whole family. I can also use it as a change room on the beach. It is full of well-thought details which gave me lots of pleasant surprise from time to time. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect beach tent. We love it! Was initially surprised at the size; for a small, it is very generous...but once we got it down to the beach, it was fine. It is perfect for the two of us, but plenty of room for one more. It took me a couple of goes to get setup right but now, it’s easy. The sand pockets on the side were perfect to stop it blowing away in the wind. Like the little storage pockets inside; perfect for keeping bits sand-free and accessible. My only change to it would be to add a carry handle to the bag, but that’s a minor tweak. Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! A whole lot better than anticipated. Very very happy with our purchase. Service was fantastic too. Safe to say our expectations have been exceeded in quality of product and service. Will most certainly be shopping with Kathmandu again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the kids Wanted this to keep my twins out of the sun, its easy to use i enjoy it, it does what i wanted it to do, i also love how it has sand pockets so you dont need to use pegs.!! Great add on.!! but the only downside is it gets really stuffy and hot inside (as do all tents I guess) so other then that it great. Oh and a carry strap/over the shoulder strap would make it better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beach revelation at an excellent price. This shelter made me comfortable spending hours rather than minutes on the beach. It's big enough for one adult to lie down in comfortably, with room to spare for books, water, snacks and so on. Easily two and probably three adults if sitting, though less lounging possible that way. There are useful hanging pockets for sunglasses and other bits and pieces. I put it up solo easily when there was no wind, and with a bit more swearing when it was very breezy. Didn't need the guy ropes when it was still; when very windy I had guys in and sand pockets full but was still worried it might blow away while I was swimming (it didn't, but pegs came out). Easy for one person to carry this plus a beach bag - it's well-packed and not heavy. Pegs press in to dry sand with heel of the hand. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I set this up at home on my own, very easy to set up and pack up. surprisingly, everything went back into the bag it came out of without a struggle. I can't wait to get time to go to the beach to use it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rain I bought this product last year but haven`t used it till last week. Although it was well protect in windy weather, it was like bucket of water after 10 minutes rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick setup Perfect for days spent at the beach, quick to set up & pack away, surprised at how spacious it is being the smaller size shelter. Will get a lot of use from the beach shelter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for little people Easy to set up even by myself, perfect for the baby to roll around in and keep out of the sun. Soo many great features, this is going to get a lot of use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hanging out on the beach! I am a 60+ year old woman who derives immense joy from spending time on my local beach. I can erect and dismantle this shade tent easily on my own even when there's a breeze. If it's windy I take it off the beach to fold it up properly. It enables me to spend hours on the beach with both sun and wind protection. I use a sand chair and can sit or lie down completely inside the tent (across the width) if it's too cool or too hot. I haven't needed to use the tent pegs. I just put some sand in the pockets provided and it's fine. It doesn't have a carry handle (which is a minor design flaw) but it fits into my large shoulder bag and is easy to carry the 200metre distance. Not heavy but you do need to have a way of carrying it if you're walking. Very well designed and well made like you get from Kathmandu!
