Internal Pocket1 answers

Is their an internal pocket where you can store a phone and a small speaker like a Beats Pill for music?

- Adelaide(4 weeks ago)

G'day Pat!

As these are out of stock at the moment I can't go and physically check one out, but I know that there is at least one small internal pocket that should fit your phone and speaker. There might even be two pockets, but don't hold me to that!

How many people can roughly fit inside comfortably?1 answers

Will this provide covering for more than 4 people?

- Parramatta(4 months ago)

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?2 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.
- Snowys(11 months ago)

I'm agree with Lisa. Would love to have a front awning on the shelter.

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

- PERTH, WA(1 year 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(1 year 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(1 year 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(1 year 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(2 years 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.
