Our Views

You can use this as either a sun shade or a camping tent and its very light to carry. The one we tried seemed very good quality and reviewers on Amazon also made positive comments about its quality. There are double doors and the two windows fold down and have mesh screens on them. We particularly liked the six cup holders and the hook for a lantern or light inside.

One user commented about the We thought we’d take a detailed look at the Wenzel Fairweather and provide an objective view of its value. Being small and lightweight and an ideal small tent for the beach. He also said it was large enough for him, his wife and their Siberian Husky! Overall the Fairweather has an overall floor area of 49 square feet and weighs just under 6 pounds.

The most common statement from users was around the ease with which you can assemble and take down this tent, and its not often that user reviews are so consistent in this regard.

Overall this is great value for money, it’s currently available for just over $34 on Amazon and we reckon that’s a very good price for such a decent product that is designed to be a small, lightweight shelter.
