This shelter is designed with an easy instant frame with quick-release buttons to set up or pack down in a flash. It’s large enough to accommodate the whole family, yet folds into a lightweight, compact size for easy storage in the car. Its fabric is a 150D PU coated polyester with a 600mm waterhead rating, with a frame of 22mm powder-coated steel. Roof vents allow for added ventilation, while built-in sand pockets are perfect for the beach - complete with steel pegs, guy ropes, and a carry bag.
For DIY shade, the Darche KOZI Series Compact Shelter is the perfect portable solution that’ll comfortably fit the whole family.
Staff tip:To prevent UV damage that isn't covered under warranty, avoid leaving your shelter set up for extended periods in the sun.
Roof dimension 1 answer
Sorry to be a pain but would you know the roof dimensions ( I know whole thing is 4.2 x 4.2 ) but just under roof dimension thanks ðŸ˜€ Oh and could one use it with legs collapsed ? ( lower height )

In theory, you could use it with the legs collapsed, but the doorways would end up being about 1m high, and you have some issues with excess fabric and tension of the material. We don't know the roof dimensions specifically, but Darche has previously advised it's around the 3m² mark.

Torn cover - Darche KOZI Series Compact Shelter1 answer
What’s the best way to repair the cover I have a 10cm tear in the top of the shade near the central pivot hub from where the fabric got snagged on setup. Are there special adhesive patches?
Amos - Pilbara, WA(1 year ago)
Fabric repair tape is the best option, you can find it here. We recommend putting a strip on both the inside and the outside of the canopy, sandwiching the cut in the middle.

Mesh floor.1 answer
What size mesh floor will fit?
Ryan - Brisbane, QLD(2 years ago)
The footprint of this shelter is 4.2m square, so any mesh flooring that is as close to this (or whatever size space you want to be covered) will be suitable.

Wind and rain1 answer
How dose it handle the wind and rain
Stewart - Taperoo, SA(2 years ago)
The Kozi range is brand spanking new, so we have no long-term, or 'in the field' feedback at this stage. Generally, if you take the proper precautions such as pegging everything out correctly, and maybe adding tracer springs between your guy rope and pegs you should be ok in winds...but keep an eye on things and take the shelter down if things are getting hardcore. In terms of rain, the shelter has a 600mm Waterhead rating, which technically isn't really waterproof. It may protect you in a lite shower, but I wouldn't be relying on it to keep you dry in any prolonged wet weather. Ideally it's for shade and UV protection. Hope that helps!
