Product Description

Swiss Gear Smart Shade 10- by 10-Foot Screenhouse

Amazon.com

Designed for durability, functionality, and portability, the Swiss Gear Smart Shade 10-by-10-foot Screenhouse sets up and folds down in minutes. Lightweight and easy to carry, the screenhouse's tubular steel frame is strong enough to provide a rigid shelter that withstands strong winds. Built-in batwings and guyouts provide added stability in windy conditions. Versatile deck feet with anchor points for stakes or screws are also included for added stability.

The frame is designed to be lightweight, yet strong. Its telescoping corner post provide the screenhouse's upright support while its upper support is made of a series of connected, scissor-like steel sections with pivoting joints. Fully unfolded, the steel canopy frame creates a taut, clean-lined canopy roof with an attractive fascia or eave covering the scissored frame work. Other features include patented, easy-release buttons that won't pinch fingers and a heavy-duty water repellent 210D polyester covering that's enhanced with a special UV resistant coating for added durability.

I had wanted a pop-up canopy for some time, primarily to use at the outdoor shooting range, and after the last range trip where we had no shade whatsoever, I finally bought the Swiss Gear screen house. Although EZ-UP has more name recognition, I was looking at the Quik Shade 10x10 Recreational model because I'd used them at work and really liked the vented canopy. However, the legs were flimsy.

This screen house had good reviews and although the price was higher than comparable products from competitors, I decided on the Swiss Gear. (Their reputation was an additional selling point.) It's taken me a long time to learn the "pay once for quality" lesson, but I've finally learned it (and this purchase reaffirmed it). I was initially disappointed to learn that the canopy is designed to be removed from the frame every time you take it down, but I got over it.

We have no cover over our patio at home, so I decided to set this canopy up as a temporary summer solution. I put it up by myself in about 10 minutes. I would have preferred to have help, as I had to lean the canopy on two legs and I was afraid of bending them as I did the Quik Shade, but the legs are sturdy steel (vs. aluminum) and held up nicely. I have yet to attach the screen panels but I expect them to perform as well as the canopy itself.

Overall, it's fantastic and worth every penny. It looks great and works as advertised. Bonus: This past Friday we had our first family backyard barbecue in 14 years!

Update 11/16/08: Each time I use it, it makes me happier. This past weekend I took the canopy to an outdoor car show. My uncle commented on how easy it was to set up, and said, "Boy, you got the deluxe model.

All of the comments regarding the quality of the canopy are true, but we ran into a problem with rain. If the rain is steady enough water can pool along the edge of the fabric top, and the weight will cause the side to buckle. If you're handy with tools you can fix this problem by adding a brace to the top arms. See the picture on the main page. The brace is made from a short piece of aluminum L-channel with holes drilled in the ends. Holes will need to be drilled in the top arms on either side of the plastic connector. The connector has two nubs sticking out on the side. The trick is to drill a hole in in one top arm, connect one end of the aluminum brace, position the other end of the brace on the other top arm such that the top edge of the brace is under the nubs. This will form a shallow arch. Mark and drill the top arm and attach the other end of the brace. You need to do this once for each of the four cross arms. Doing this will slightly arch the canopy top causing water to run right off without pooling.

Year after year ordering tent after tent. Finally, this one is fabulous! Easy to put up, sturdy, well made, sharp looking, and easy to move. Great detailed construction. Comes in a great zippered carry bag with pockets and wheels, similar to a golf travel bag. Zippers very good quality. Great fitting screens. Vertical walls give great room and coverage. The fabric is a very nice and much softer white than in the pictures. Frame is one big piece that unfolds like an accordian. 5 minutes max to put up. Much better than I expected. I put three together and now have 300 square feet of a new summer home. Could not be more pleased!

We live in a warm climate with lots of water and woods, which automatically means lots of bugs. The bugs LOVE my 2-year-old son, and consequently he HATES them. The minute he sees one, he's inside. We got this house to enclose his sandbox so he can play happily outside in the summer.

The house is attractive and quite sturdy. There is a strong structure of poles that holds the whole thing up. The poles are mostly already connected and the whole thing basically just unfolds, and then you add the roof and the walls. With 2 people it's a snap to set up and take down. It does not hold up to high winds, but I don't think any bug houses are made for that.

Surrounding the frame is a roof canopy and a screen curtain, which are separate pieces. This is nice if you want the option of having just the shade sometimes. But for us, bug prevention was really the only objective. Because there are two pieces, the roof and the walls, it is not very bug proof. The roof overhangs the screen but there is not a good seal between the two. Bugs like to crawl up the screen and then up into the roof, and then they drop down on your head. In addition to the numerous spiders, earwigs, and other crawly bugs that made their home in our structure during the 3 weeks it was up, we also had tics, which can be real dangerous as they carry lyme disease.

The other problem we had with this was the entry. The walls are very taught, which is good, except that this combined with the zipper location makes zipping and unzipping the thing a real pain. The zipper is in the middle of the wall, and when fully closed the zipper is on the ground. You have to bend WAY down to unzip and it's a two-handed job.
