Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


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
