This Lightspeed cabana is definitely a lot faster and easier to put up. Where the Coleman (in windy conditions and depending on the help you have) can take up to 5-10 minutes, this one is up in 60 seconds. It's design reminds me of an umbrella in a lot of ways. Standing the tent up so that the center hub is pointing to the sky, you let it unfold out and then lift a lower hub up to the stationary top hub and presto...light speed shelter. I can tell you that it does require a little strength in bringing this lower hub to the top one. I read in a few reviews posted that some had trouble with this step and I can see why. For me, it isn't so much that it's too difficult, it's just that I am trying to be so careful while doing it. The poles, sliding mechanisms, and other attachment devices that hold the tent fabric to the frame are all made out of plastic. We've all seen what happens when the frame of an umbrella gets bent or breaks. Time to toss the umbrella. This is certainly something I want to avoid with this. While I am being overly protective, the frame does appear robust enough to handle the job and putting a little bit of pressure to pop everything in place is necessary. Once up, I was pleased to see that this shelter offered enough room for our two chairs and there is plenty of space left over for other items. The ceiling area is much higher in the Coleman but I think having a slightly lower ceiling in this will help in shielding you from the sun. The shelter has three window flaps, a netted storage pocket, guy lines, and comes with tent stakes. The stakes are small plastic ones and I plan on taking some of my longer metal stakes for the beach. The tent also has sewn in pouches on the outside that gives you the ability to fill them with sand to weight it down. It's very light weight to carry and it comes in a tent bag that is slightly oversized. I love it when they give you a bigger bag than what you need because I can't stand trying to fit something in a tiny bag (I can never get it back down to the original packing size).
One major difference between the Coleman and this is that the Lightspeed does not offer the ability to zip up the porch area for changing room privacy. However, I have found that you can easily make some adjustments to give it that capability. Folding the front porch area up and clamping it down to the front poles can be done nicely. I tested this by putting the tent up in my living room. For the first test, I just wanted to see if the porch area fabric was wide/tall enough to enclose the open space of the shelter. It is. I used clothes pins for the test, but I will probably be using some other lightweight clamps with a stronger spring in them for the beach. I want to use something that is strong enough to hold it temporarily in the wind but not too crazy that it would damage or distort the poles. We have a beach trip coming up in a few weeks and I plan on taking this one and the Coleman for our family outing. My wife and I will use one and my son can use the other. Both are nice but this one does offer a quicker setup and with a little modification, you can close it up so it can be used as a changing room.
Update July 24, 2016:
Took this to the beach and it worked really well. While a lot of folks are struggling with various shade shelters, this is out of the bag and up in seconds. The "porch area" on this does get hot and obviously very sanding. We plan on going back to the beach in a few weeks and I think I am going to try and keep this area folded into the shelter, thus providing somewhat of a double floor on the inside. Since we are sitting on chairs further inside the tent, there really isn't any reason to have the front flap out so far. Also, I think this will help reduce the amount of sand collecting on the inside and easier to clean. As far as cleaning, my wife and I basically got on each side of the tent and lifted it and dumped the sand the loose sand out. Be careful to do this away from others however because the sand blows everywhere. When we got home, I just popped it back out in the back yard and brushed out the rest of the sand. I recommend brushing over the leg/joint areas as well so sand doesn't damage these areas. We were very pleased with the performance. It provided a shade haven and a place to store stuff out of the sun.
Great product, worth the money if you are going to use it more then once or twice a year.
My only suggestion would be to buy a better set of stakes. The 8 plastic stakes that come with it are not that great. Also, they only give you 8 stakes when 10 can be used if you are going to stake down all sides and front flap.
Our first trip out to the beach was essentially a disaster. The tent set up very easily and I pounded the stakes into wet sand. All was good, shade was nice but then a surprise rainstorm came in and it started pouring (or so we thought). This is where the faults shine. The vents on the sides and rear are NOT zip up. They are flaps with velcro on the bottom that roll up and set into place (with an elastic band). This means that water can just pour (literally pour) right into the tent during the rain. The very center/top of the tent does a terrific job at channeling water down directly INTO THE TENT via these vents. We had to emergency put our towels and other wet-sensitive items in the car. The water was forming cold puddles inside the tent very quickly and we were constantly trying to lift the bottom to get the water to run out the front. The funny part is once we got the stuff in the car and gave up on bailing water from the tent we went out to walk in the rain and realized... it really wasn't raining that hard. It seemed like a downpour in the tent because the water was being channeled directly in.
Here's the thing... if they didn't say "umbrella rated 450mm PU coating for wet conditions" then I would probably give this 5 stars. But they tricked me into thinking it was going to be fine in the rain and that influenced my final decision. Technically speaking the water was not seeping through any other parts of the tent so those are definitely meeting that description. But this tent is a disaster in the rain.
It rains frequently when we visit the beach here in Florida. I'm a bit disappointed.
That being said, if you are looking this specifically for shade and it's always sunny then it's a great tent.
Pros: -Sets up very quickly
- Long front tarp is great and a fairly unique feature
-Side pockets inside are nice for small item storage (keys or phone)
-It does pretty well in the wind (sub 20mph gusts)
Cons: -Terrible terrible terrible in the rain
-Flaps are velcro attached and not zippered (big problem if it rains)
-On the Blue/Gray model the tarp that stretches out in the front is dark colored and will immediately get scorching hot in the sun. I should have thought about this when I ordered. The blue/key lime model seems to have a lighter colored tarp and shouldn't suffer from the same problem.
-Fairly awkward to roll up and fit in the carrying bag with just one person.
Overall, I'm a little disappointed. The flaps design seems so cheap. As long as it doesn't rain though, you should have an excellent shade that sets up quickly.
