I'm a single woman pushing 60 with no mechanical skills, and I was able to put this up by myself. In less than 30 minutes I was sitting in it, enjoying a beer and giving the finger to those rotten bugs that wanted to ruin my afternoon. At night I delight in being surrounded by happy little fireflies. I love it!

Just to add, the tent has been through 3 summers now and is still in good shape. I put it up in early spring and take it down in late fall, hosing it down and hanging it on the clothesline until it's completely dry. The poles I just make sure are dry and put back in the box (you're supposed to clean them but I don't). Also enough light gets in so that it doesn't damage the lawn under it (there is no floor).

I purchased a Eureka Hex Screen House 3 years ago for my wife, we live in the country and the only way I could get her to be outside with me was to get her a screenhouse to sit in. She absolutely loves this screen house, I have been setting it up in the spring every season once the bugs start to appear and leaving it up all summer. The two doors allow easy access to either side and the interior is large enough that her A-Frame swing will fit inside, she relax's bug free and comfortable while I work in the garden. This is a very high quality screen house for the price, since I leave it up throughout the summer it has withstood many gusty storms and never had an issue!!

I have had 4 different screen houses before this one. This is by far the best. It is easy to set up and has plenty of room. We live in Maine and sometimes have thunderstorms with gusty winds come thru. All it takes is seconds to unclip and pick up the poles and give them a little twist and the tent drops to the ground till the storm goes thru. Just as quick to set up again. I lost 3 tents before to wind. I won't have to worry about that with this one.

Short and sweet. Owned this for several years. Never left up for more than a week at a time. Stored in bags after drying out every time.
Pros:
- Easy one or two person setup (even easier with more than two)
- Free standing (but recommend securing with stakes).
- No see-um screen with no chance of bugs entering.
- Not overly too large (fits over a large sized picnic table with some room to spare).
- Green colored (blends in with camp site)
Cons:
- Interior items can get wet if the wind blows horizontally. Light rains do not seem to impact interior.
- No top vent (gets real stuffy on the inside if you don't use a fan to circulate the air)
- Zipper teeth are small and plastic and eventually both zippers went out on this item (two separate doors). Temporarily used sewn on velcro to partially fix, until the screen ripped from age. Be carefult with the zippers. All the brands I ran across do not put better quality or larger zippers on the doors...why not???

The Eureka screen tent lasted for more than a couple of years, but now we are trying a Coleman brand. I'll let you know on that one!

This screen house goes up easily enough, However the slanted sides are not coverd by the roof and the seams in the roof are not reinforced very well. This makes it a place where you can get away from bugs as long as they do not follow you in through the doors that are a little hard to manage. If you want to sit outside in the rain however you will find yourself looking for a spot where for reasons of wind direction or roof drip patterns happen to be dry. So it will work well in the yard and not as well camping. Not a bad price though

Used one week

We had bought a competitor's brand last year. The screen tent lasted one rain storm and the poles bent and broke. Though we haven't had this Eureka Screen House in the rain yet, it's obviously much stronger constructed. We really liked the ease of set-up and take-down. It's a bit tight with a full=size picnic table (wish we'd bought a little larger size), but other than that, it's been a great choice!

The screen house worked as advertised. It was easy to set up and pretty easy to take down (I couldn't figure out how to get everything back into the box for winter storage, but that's a minor problem). I've had the screen house for less than a year, so I don't know about long term use. I see a bit of rust stain where the metal sub-poles come together (six poles composed of four sub-poles each make up the screen house's external framework. I set the screen house up under some pine trees, so it was never exposed to high winds, but I expect it would be pretty stable under most conditions.

I recommend this product - it makes for a pleasant environment in the evening when the fireflies can fly around outside on a summer night while the mosquitos buzz helplessly, not getting to my exposed skin.

We used this product for three weeks lately and were happy with it. It was easy to assemble, covered a large picnic table with plenty of room to move around, and kept the mosquitos and 'no-see-ums' out. Overall quality was good. Our only complaint was that when the afternoon thunderstorms came through, a good gust of wind tended to twist the tent on its pole skeleton and partially collapse it. A little stabilizing with some clothesline solved that, so no big deal. We'd recommend this one.

Overall, this is a very nice screen house. The bug mesh is tight & regular. The polyester top/bottom is the same material as for many Eureka tents, though the polyurethane coating is not as thick, so the water resistance is not comparable to a tent. A tarp over the top will fix this problem easily. The seams & corners are reinforced, and there are no excessive stress points built into the design.

The screen house was exceptionally easy to set up -- it took us 5 minutes to set up, including opening the box. The clips are easy to attach. The 6-pole hex design has straighter sides & is sturdier in wind than the square or rectangular designs we tried.

My only complaints are (1) the doors are less than 5' high, so I have to duck to get through them, and (2) the stakes that come with the tent are large, thick, plastic things that are hard to pound into the ground, hard to hook to the tent rings, & harder to get out again. I switched to some plain metal J-shape stakes to fix problem 2.

Great tent as long as there is no wind. A 10 mph wind twisted two of the support poles around which collapsed the side. Called the company looking for a replacement or a refund and thay wanted me to ship the unit back to them, at my expense, to see why this had happened. Once I realized the expense of returning the tent I decided against sending it back. I set the tent on the side until our next garage sale and bought a Coleman. What a difference.
