Durable, Effective

Very happy with this product after 18 months of use. Very effective in providing shade and mighty easy to put up and down. The storage sock is not quite as durable and mine has some minor tears along the seam. Overall, a very good product which is worth the money.

Great family shelter

A great shelter for sun protection while still being able to enjoy the beach. The silver lining on the interior worked well in blocking the burning sun. Lots of interior room for sitting. Easy to pull out when assembling and easy to fold up. Used sand to anchor the outside side pockets and had no problems with a light wind. Great to be able to angle the tent so a young child could play on the beach in the shade. Tent was delivered promptly within a few days of ordering.

Great shelter

The shelter is great, easy to put up (even though I am short I still managed on my own) and easy to take down again and best of all it fits back in the bag!!It is nice and roomy and we got the guy ropes in case of it being windy (which it was) It is also stays nice and cool in the shelter even when really hot at the beach. I would highly recommend this. We used it for 10 days at Tuross Head.

Great service and great shelter

We got the tent a day after ordering and literally just before Christmas. The shelter is heaps better than our old one which was a different brand.

Super easy to set up!

Awesome beach tent to set up and pack down. Bought some guy ropes and pegs in case it was windy - and it was. Performed super well!! Highly recommend!!

Good quality beach shelter but folds under pressure!

We bought this beach shelter as a member of the family had an identical one and we were impressed with its size, transportability and build quality. Its also very easy to pop up and fold down. The only negative I have is that it struggles with anything more than a breeze - the front pole tends to bend with the wind, collapsing the side and roof eventually. If we bought another shelter we'd probably choose one with side vents which allowed the wind to pass through without collapsing the tent

Response from Snowys Jan 04 2016

G'day Ben, thank you for sharing your experience. Funnily enough, I was in a similar situation over Christmas. Winds were pretty strong but I was adamant to relax under the UV Guardian. Fortunately I had a guy rope with me, so I tied the shelter down from that particular knuckle to the ground. Also, I shovelled sand into the side pockets to weigh it down. Although I wasn't able to zip up the side wall, it worked really well! I hope this helps next time you head out and the winds pick up. Laine

How many people can roughly fit inside comfortably?1 answers

Will this provide covering for more than 4 people?

G'day Adz,

The Caribee Guardian UV Beach Shelter doesn't havbe a recommend capacity so I can't give you a hard and fast answer.

This shelter is 1.9L x 1.9W x 1.4H so you could probably get 4 people inside it, but anything over that would most likely be uncomfortable.

Can you purchase a attachments for the front, like an awning?1 answers

We love our caribee sunshade, but when we go to the beach in the morning, the sun comes in. We love to have the door facing the beach so we can look out at the ocean, but it's full of sun. If there were an additional awning you could snap on with poles that would block the sun coming in, but keep the door open to allowing the breeze that would be spectacular! If one doesn't exist, would you let the manufacturer know of our suggestion.

There are no add-on accessories for this sorry Lisa, I'll mention it to our Caribee representative but given we've not had any other similar enquiries I can't see it hitting the shelves anytime soon. The best I can recommend is setting up a second shelter such as the Moana in front of your Caribee Guardian, but this would mean carrying more gear to the beach. Sorry we couldn't help with this.

Which colour would be cooler and provide more blockout from the sun or are they all much of a muchness?1 answers

- PERTH, WA(9 months ago)
Hi Melissa, these are all UPF50+ rated, so will offer the same sun protection regardless of the colour. In terms of how cool they will be, I don't think you will notice a lot of difference between them in terms of temperature, the fabric has a silver backing which does not let much light through.

How does rear wall work. Watched video but couldn't work out zippered rear wall.1 answers

Want a tent that can have three walls

- BENDIGO, VIC(11 months ago)
The rear wall is attached along the bottom edge Elaine, and a zipper runs around the top to secure it. You can see the wall lying undone at the front of the shelter about half way through the video.

Is it waterproof? What is the height?1 answers

- WA(11 months ago)
Hi Dagne, the fabric has a 2000mm waterhead rating. It will be fine in a light shower, but the structure itself is not designed to keep you dry. As for the height, you are looking at 1.4m at the peak.
- Snowys(11 months ago)

What are the dimensions of the package and its weight?1 answers

Is this product waterproof?

- WA(1 year ago)
Hi Dagne, I have updated these details on our website. Weight is 2.8kg, packed dimensions are 107L x 13W x 13H cm. The fabric is waterproof but won't provide much shelter in the rain given it cannot be fully enclosed.

What are these like in the wind1 answers

How well do these shelters perform when the wind picks up?

- Snowys(1 year ago)
While the quick pitch frame of the UV Guardian is easy to set up, they have some limitations in high winds with the corner knuckles collpasing into their packed position.This can be easily overcome with the addition of the 4pk guy ropes listed in the product description for the UV Guardian added to each corner.
