Description

Show Description

A freestanding shelter for protection from sun, rain, and bugs particularly useful during early- or late-season trips. Floorless, it fits right over a picnic table. Seam-sealed roof helps you laugh at the rain, and big mesh doors and side panels let the view in.

  • Main fabric is 75-denier polyester with a waterproof coating - the same stuff we use on our backpacking tents!
  • Poles attach with a mix of sleeves, clips, and hook and loop straps to create a strong structure.
  • Generous mesh panels keep bugs out and let you enjoy the views. When it rains, deploy the removable waterproof side panels to wait out the deluge.
  • Huge double doors on each side have a waterproof fabric layer that rolls up out of the way when unzipped, and a bug-proof mesh layer.
  • Tie the fabric door panels out to trees, paddles or tarp poles (sold separately) to create awnings.
  • Floor-free design means no worries about cooking spills. Weather skirts around the bottom keep the wind from getting underneath.
  • 4 interior pockets keep you organized.
  • Includes a duffle bag-style carry bag, a pole sack with integrated instruction sheet, and 6 stakes.
