Terrific as long as there is not strong wind.I have to have shelter on the beach. Umbrellas are too small and tents are heavy and hard to carry around. I bought this shelter as a solution - what a fantastic design. It is light, it is easy and quick to put up, and it is very sturdy. The wind curtain works well. However, using this on the beach as the wind picked up was dicey. In fact, it was difficult to keep the shelter from cyclically blowing over. Blowing up the poles more firmly did not help. Repositioning the stakes and tie-outs did help. Finally, I had to take down the wind curtain to take some of the mechanical stress off of the structure until the wind died down.
Overall, this is SUCH a well made and well designed shelter. You just need to be aware that it may suffer in higher winds.
