1) The directions are a joke. The tent is impossible to assemble with the information Coleman provides. Fortunately, I found a Youtube video by a customer (searching for Coleman beach tent assembly). 2) The company does not provide a carrying case (which is essential for a beach tent). It is impossible to squeeze the tent back into the container it is shipped in. 3) It arrived with a defective/broken pole. (The plastic sleve on one of the elements of the long grey pole was cracked and split. Coleman's customer service would do nothing about it, insisting that I contact Amazon. Amazon would replace the entire tent if I shipped it back to them. But shipping it back is impossible because there is no way to squeeze it back into the package it arrived in. NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!
