When the sun is out and whether is fine, it’s always a good time to fire up the barbie, and get some mates together for a little outdoor soiree. The only problem is, that harsh Australian sun can wilt your salad, turn your drinks lukewarm, and turn your skin to a lovely shade of beetroot. That’s why you’ve got to make sure you protect you and your guests with a nice spot of shelter, like the Fast Pitch Event 12 from Coleman.
The Event 12 is free standing, and can be adjusted to make it the right height for you and your pals. This model is so much easier to use than other outdoor shelters, as it has a fast-pitch system that means you can set up this bad boy, and take it down in under 5 minutes. The heavy duty canopy has 50+ UV protection, so the fabric won’t deteriorate and it will provide an excellent shield from the sun. This shelter is also tested at high winds, so it’ll stay sturdy if the weather turns a little sour.
For an easy to set up shelter that’ll take your outdoor events next level, the Coleman Fast Pitch Event 12 Shelter is the way to go.
Sorry.. you can edit these questions together if you like.. What I am after is a comparison in setup between this shelter "Fast pitch event 12" and the normal "event 12" (https://www.snowys.com.au/event-14-sun-shelter-sunwall)
Sorry about that Toby! I was answering your other question at the same time and jumped the gun there.
The Fast Pitch Event 12 Shelter is going to be significantly simpler to set up in comparison to the Event 14 (we don’t sell the Event 12 and you’ve linked to the 14 – so I hope I haven’t got my wires crossed again).
There double the amount of steps for setting up the Event 14 compared to the Fast Pitch 12, as it requires you to assemble the peak and leg poles with the centre hub etc. It may be helpful to read the instructions here, to get a better idea as they’re quite detailed.
To set up the Fast Pitch Event 12, you connect the roof poles, assemble side poles sections, attach sides to roof poles, extend corner holders and connect the poles and then attach the fly. The video linked in the product description will give you an idea of how it all comes together.
So just to compare this and the event 12. Which is the quickest to setup? Why would you advise getting one or the other? thanks!
The Mountain View is going to offer a little bit more stability so it's a great option for when you want shelter up for an entire day as opposed to a couple of hours.
That does mean though, that set-up is more complicated, and will set you back about 20 minutes. This model can also be fully enclosed (includes floor and walls) so it is going to provide more shelter and insect protection than the Event 12.
The Event 12 has a fast pitch frame that will only set you back 5-10 minutes for set-up, so it's best suited for shorter periods compared to an all-day event.
So if you're just wanting some shelter for picnics or barbeques the Event 12 would be best, but if you want to set up an all day shelter for sporting events etc. then the Mountain View would be better suited to you.
Am looking at this, the event shelter and the mountain view . They all seem similar but slightly different. Event shelter is most popular at camp grounds but not sure if that answers question.
If you compare the Coleman Event 12 Shelter to the Coleman Mountain View Shelter, the Event 12 is going to be a faster set up as it's got a fast pitch system.
I would say that it will take you around 5-10 minutes to set up for the Fast Pitch, and approx 20 for the Mountain View if that helps.
Just wondering if the shelter is waterproof as well for when it rains.
The Coleman Fast Pitch Event 12 is indeed 100% waterproof - so it can be used outdoors rain or shine!
