Rated 3 out of 5 by JudyAS from pop-up sun shelter This sun shelter was spacious and well-made. We did not keep it because our primary use of this type of shelter is for windy and/or cool days at the beach. Since the window flaps are hooked at the corners rather than zippered all the way around it allows a lot of wind to blow in around the edges of the flaps. It defeats our purpose to get out of the wind. We found a very similar although slightly smaller pop-up shelter that had zippered flaps for much less money elsewhere. I give LLBean's shelter 5 stars for quality, size and ease of use but only 3 stars since there are no zippers to close the flaps and the price. Therefore it does not meet our expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodforhomeorcamp from Hail-proof Yesterday, we easily erected our Sunbuster Folding Shelter on our favorite beach on Narragansett Bay. Weather forecasts had our sunny day interrupted by a brief shower. This occurred. The shelter proved waterproof except for the screened areas. There was a break when the sun almost came out. Then, there was thunder, lightning and 1/8" hail. This let up. We tried to wait out the storm. Then the hail reappeared in 1/4 inch and larger balls. Still, the Sunburst protected us. We took it down and stuffed it into the car. Today, it snapped right back into shape and gave us a very comfy afternoon at the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BangorMama from Even better than the original We had the original for a few years which we loved, it was a great spot with babies and little kids to keep them out of the sun, change their clothes, etc. When the new model came out, it seemed silly to upgrade, but I sold the old one and went for it, and so glad I did! The integrated privacy panel isn't as full as the original was (but the original was an extra expense) but it's all attached, which is great. Setup took a few minutes to figure out, but now it goes up and down with ease. We use it at beaches, but also in the backyard - those babies are now big kids, and it makes for a quick fort in the yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeaEben from Easy to set up-works great This sun shelter was delivered 2 days after I ordered it. We got it to provide sun protection at the beach for our 1 year old grand-daughter when she and her parents visit us on Cape Cod. This is a preliminary review based on the initial setup in the back yard. If there is any more to add after we use it at the beach, I will update it. The instructions are printed on a weather-proof tag that is sewn to the top of the bag. They were very clear as to how to set it up. Once it is unpacked and the poles were spread out by shaking it, it is a simple process to pop it open. It took me 15 seconds to get it set up. Collapsing it was even quicker, probably 5 to 10 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CWStar from Fantastic shade We use this shade at all day dog shows. It is light and easy to carry and easy to set up (takes less than a minute) with a little practice. It takes up minimal space in the car. We can fit two 36”x24” dog crates side by side and still have room for an adult to lie in front of the crates. The material has stood up to metal crates without ripping. The benefit of this over a tent is the large screened windows that allow cross breeze so the pups stay cool. Since it has a floor, it can’t blow away. The screen material seems delicate and care must be taken to avoid snags or rips- which so far we’ve been able to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LorienW from Beach or Backyard Shelter I was more than happy after opening and setting up this shelter. It is very lightweight for carrying across the beach - no more heavy than a typical beach umbrella - and it is very easy to set up and put away. There is lots of room inside, enough to lay down two towels or put in two camp chairs comfortably. You could put in more chairs or towels but that would really limit room for things like coolers or beach bags. This will also be awesome to use in the backyard for some shade with my baby while my toddler can run around and use it as "home base." We will get a lot of use out of this shelter and the quality is fantastic, definitely feel like I got a great deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ATXMOM from Worth Every Penny I purchased this with a little sticker shock to use on the beach for my 5 month old. I was shocked at how well it withstood 20 MPH winds and keep my little one in the shade, and the wind from her. This was worth every penny I would buy again. I highly recommend for the quality, thought in designing, and easy of use. Normally with 20 MPH winds on the beach I would be chasing this thing down the beach with no way to assemble, but it went up with in 5 minutes and no arguments between me and my mother in law! Stakes and tie downs made it sturdy and perfect for the whole family not just the baby

Rated 3 out of 5 by stedanrac from Not so sure about this shelter Just got back from two weeks at the Cape Cod with this shelter. My complaint is that the fabric seems quite thin and it lets a lot of solar heat through. We had a few hot sunny days and when I sat in the shelter I could feel the sun even inside. I'd expect at least the top of the tent to be a more opaque material. We have umbrellas that give more complete shade. When I was using it, I was tempted to lay some towel, or blanket over the top to increase the shade. I think this will be going back. Too bad because I like the size and the structure of the tent.
