Very easy to set up and take down.
Gia P.
It keeps the sun off of us, it gives my baby a place to take a nap while on the beach, and it gives my family shade from the sun, and protection from the wind.

The tent is perfect for the beach.

I purchased the Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade at Amazon prior to a family spring-break beach trip to Naples, FL. At the same time, I purchased the Sport-brella XL from Amazon. I used both on the trip.

The primary benefit to the Beach Shade is that it packs up into a very small package. I haven't measured, but I would guess that it is 18 inches long (and only 6 inches tall / deep). It has a convenient handle to carry and weighs a few pounds (lighter than the beach chairs). The Beach Shade is a very good tent design and provides good shade at the beach. There are three collapsable poles that you need to push through sleeves in the tent. Once accomplished, the tent is up. Then, you have to anchor the tent with the stakes and / or sand bags. This tent is a piece of cake to setup with TWO people; it takes us about 15 minutes. It would challenging for one person to set this up-- especially if it was windy. When anchored properly, the tent isn't going anywhere. We used it on a windy day with no problem.

Advantage over Sport-brella
(1) More shade for a longer period-- given the "tent" design.
(2) Small size when packed up.
(3) Has a floor so you are not sitting in sand. The floor extends to the front of the tent.
(4) Can close front and use as "changing room."

Disadvantage over Sport-brella
(1) Harder to install than Sport-brella. Better to have two people install.
(2) Inside of tent gets hot.

Criticisms:

(1). Although it creates adequate shade, the inside of the tent gets pretty HOT. It was 85-90 degrees Farenheit at the beach. We needed to open the rear window in order to stand it-- which takes away from the shade. (We had no such problem with the sport-brella, but the Coleman is more of a tent).

We used our beach shelter today for the first time in San Diego, CA - had a few people actually stop and ask us where we got it. We didn't see another one (or any other type of beach tent) on the beach at all!

Like the other reviews stated, it was easy to set up and easy to break down. Not as easy as popping up an umbrella, which is probably why there weren't any on the beach. I would say it took the two of us about 12 minutes to set up and about as much to break down (where an umbrella takes about 30 seconds) - next time it'll be quicker I'm sure, but even so it's well worth the small effort.

The front zippered flap that folds out and lays flat does indeed have two spikes to hold it. I wonder if the other reviewer just got shorted. I can see also that the metal spikes could be easily lost in the sand, I'm sure our local REI can hook us up with some heavy duty plastic versions.

Something not mentioned is that the mesh bag that the tent comes in has hooks built into it so that you can clip it to the inside top of the tent and use it as a pouch to store stuff off the ground. Very handy!

We have two of those "Rio" brand beach chairs and were able to both sit inside the tent when we wanted to be in the shade.

I looked at several different tents, and most of them cost twice as much. This tent was indeed a bargain and I highly recommend it.

If you're a parent, the picture I uploaded pretty much sums it all up. Our son took his nap on the beach in Maui, so this thing was worth it, just for that.

We've used it once on the beach in Monterey, CA, and 5 times at various beaches in Maui (just a few weeks ago), and there's no signs of cheap-o wear-and-tear. For the price, this "tent" is extremely well-made, and is ready to go, right out of the bag.* If you want to stake out the front flap and also use the included lines, though, you'll need to buy 2 more stakes. The included sand bags actually came in handy on a windy day on Maui.

It folds up well, and the stuffed bag is small enough to fit in a smaller suitcase (not a carryon, as it's a little less than 23 inches long). If you want to go hard-core on weight-reduction, you could probably replace the fiberglass poles with aluminum poles (keep the tips, though, or you won't be able to keep anything in place!).

Two things I'll add to what others have said:
1. For effective venting with the tent all closed up, I kept the back window unzipped at the bottom, and the front flap unzipped at the top. Even in Maui, the moving air kept the interior of the tent cool enough for comfortable napping.
2. If you want MORE venting and don't want to allow the sun in through the rear window, use Metal Binder Clips to clip the unzipped flap against the "frame" of the window. Fiddling with the setup can give you some pretty good airflow.

I would definitely buy this, again.

*One thing I would definitely add to the carry-bag, though, is a small whisk broom to clean out sand before naps or collapsing. It's not vital, but it will add to user comfort and help your tent last longer.

We have owned this tent for a month or so and we have used it 6 or so times already. We had bought it so that my 6 month old wouldn't get too much sun when we are at the beach. I'll start off by telling you the features that we like about it.
* It produces a good amount of shade
* It's nice looking
* It could double as a camping tent for a child or small adult without gear in a pinch
* It has a floor that extends out passed the canopy.
* If set up correctly, it is rock solid against even moderate wind. We have not been out in a storm or really heavy winds but you probably wouldn't want to be at the beach bad weather anyway.
* The back flap can be tied open, zipped to a mosquito net, or zipped with a nylon flap. Very versitile.
* It packs away in a nice small, light package.

The only thing that I don't like about it is that they used a netted material to make the sleeves that the poles slide through. I understand why they chose it and don't really know if there would have been a better material to use. They used it so that it doesn't get full of sand and for it to dry very if wet. However, 90% of the time assembling it you will spend it dealing with the couplings and ends of the poles getting gigged on the netted material. If your not careful I can see how it would tear quite easily. You have to be patient and take your time sliding it through while helping releasing the snags as they present themselves (cause they will). It seems as if the slower you try to do it, the faster and easier it will go. Even with one person. Isn't that the case with most things though?
I like the sandbags. If you fill them up all the way and burry them in the sand the tent will be rock solid. The stakes are pretty thin and will not work in the sand obviously.
