Is it waterproof??



a review said it kept the rain off. just reserved mine, decision is yours.

There's always next year ;-)

it's £15 quid but your better off getting the Coleman Sundome Beach Shelter with UV Guard it's a lot better and will be in stock HERE

Love this review of it on Argos:

"In advance of a trip to the beach with the kids, my wife asked me to find a sun shelter, and I came across this in Argos.
We were very pleased with it. It comes with all the poles and pegs that you need to build it which is very nice. It was also a relief to find that you could take it down again when you are finished with it - we were concerned that it wouldn't fit into the car again afterwards which might have meant either leaving a child behind, or towing them home on a skateboard. Neither proved necessary.
Although it is rated at SPF 50 I would say that it is difficult to be sure this is accurate. It is certainly SPF 48 in my opinion, which is good. To acheive the full benefit of this protection you do have to make sure that you have the shelter between you and the sun. It didn't work so well for the kids when they were in the sea.
Lastly I think I should mention the stripes. They are exactly the width that I hoped for - narrow enough to feel very stripey without being so narrow that you feel that there are too many. This is exactly what I look for in my stripes, so well done."

Or you could save yourself £6, get this one, still have UV guard, and have a very good chance it'll be just as good for the few times a year you use it, and take it back for a refund if not!

Thanks. We did have one of those pop up tents but found it very poor.
It leaked water in, also near on impossible to "pop" it back into the bag it came with.

Morpheus you could save yourself £9 and wear a hankie on your head! The Coleman shelter is far superior to this, just always going for what's cheapest doesn't always means you get the best deal!

I haven't owned both so can't comment, but I assume you must have to be so expert on the quality of both?

Also not sure my 3 month old baby would be so well protected from the sun wearing a hanky?!?!?

Quechua shelters look to be half the price of amazon in decathlon (£20-30 depending on size...)
