We recently bought a sun shelter for our upcoming beach vacation (and for any other outdoor activity that requires shade). Here is a video of us assembling and disassembling the shelter. Most reviews say that it is difficult to assemble and I wanted to see for myself exactly how difficult it was and how long it would take me to put the thing together. The conclusion? It is a two-person job. And yes, it requires a bit of strength to assemble, mainly because the design of the shelter requires tension to hold the thing up. Overall I am happy with this purchase and I think it will last and of course since I bought it from REI, it will come with a lifetime guarantee. If it ever has any issues, I can always return it back for a full refund. I have a feeling I’m going to be happy I bought this thing for a long time :)
