Bought this sun shelter as my daughter has recently started lifeguards competitions which means long days at the beach. The shelter seems to attract the sun and on the 2 occasions we have tried to use it we have been unable to sit inside it because it is too hot. If you want a sweat box, buy this. If you want shelter from the sun you can actually use, buy a beach umbrella. The shelter is a waste of money.
I am sorry for the situation, but the main purpose of this shelter is to protect you from wind and rain. If you are looking for UV protection, I would recommend the 2 seconds XL fresh,a innovative canvas which reduces the heat felt in the direct sunlight.

Easy, quick, straightforward. Used it every day on different types of beach on holiday.
Used this on a wild and windy beach in Lanzarote. Just put heavy rocks inside when very windy, and no problem with wind. Don't know how I have lived without it. Goes up in seconds, folds up really small and easy to pack in your suitcase. Watched others struggling with umbrellas....
Bought for Hol 2 Spain and for the Beach in days out n about. Only weighs just over a 1Kg and fitted in my Large suitcase. Pops up as it says in x2 Secs and you can put it back down and zipped away in less than x30 Secs. Top Bargain & Great for the kids which can be used all year round :)
Total ease and popping up & down
Great beach tent for hot, cool or windy weather, although purchased the green with a zip which was much better and more versatile for changing in and protecting from elements.
Would not be without this. Easy and to put up.
Tricky to put down for some.
