Smart Shade Sun Shelter Watch video

Is your family on the larger side and completely useless at pitching tents? Well, let the clever Speedy Family Pop-Up Sunshelter from Explore Planet Earth make light work of it.

Popping up in an instant, the Smart Shade protects you and your little ones from the harsh Aussie sun with its UPF 50+ rated fabric. A zippered panel on the back delivers extra protection when closed or great ventilation when opened up, and it has a detachable floor that you can sit on.  

Also featuring a durable non-corrosive spring steel frame, this pop-up beach shade includes pegs and a sandbag anchor for stability and has built-in sand and storage pockets for keeping small items at hand. And it’s as easy to pack up as it is to set up!

Light & easy

Weightless to transport & easy set up, little tricky on the pull down, but once you do it, you get the hang of it 😊

Love this tent, got 2 already

Two seconds to put up and take down. Great to use in the wind, just open while the kids fill the sand pockets.

I see other sun tents battle the wind but this one is easy as. High recommend this! Heaps of room for all and the picnic/beach gear. 10/10

Good size; improvements needed

Keeps: Good size; pop up nature
Starts: Have only one large pocket on sides for the sand; incorporate the floor into the shelter - the separate floor is a very poor design; heavier duty frame - is substantially flimsier than the model I purchased 16 years ago - cant see it lasting a similar period!

Stand against wind and floor?1 answer

Does this tent stand up well against wind? And does the floor have to be attached after assembly (or can it be left on when packing up)?

- NSW(10 months ago)

G'day Val,

Nothing in the world is totally windproof, unfortunately. Whilst the Smart Shade Pop-Up Beach Sunshelter - Family does hold its own against some moderate winds, I'd certainly suggest that you take it down if the wind starts picking up. As for the detachable floor, whilst you can fold it up with the floor still attached, it does make it a little tricker and it might get in the way. I'd probably just recommend that it might be easier removing it and reattaching it next time you set it up.

G'day Mike, 

Thanks for taking an interest in Snowys - we're always happy to hear from folks across the pond, but unfortunately we are only shipping within Australia at this time.

Does the carry bag have straps or handle? 1 answer

just wondering whether it is easy to take with me

- Newtown(1 year ago)

G'day Mario, 

I've just had a look for you, and I've found that the Smart Shade Pop Up Beach Sunshelter comes with a bag that has two carry straps - so you should be able to just sling this shade over your shoulder. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Hi does the ground sheet come with this or do you have to purchase it?1 answer


- Adelaide(1 year ago)

G'day Gary,

The groundsheet comes with the shelter, but is removable so you can choose whether or not to have it on.

Air flow1 answer

Does this have a mesh window panel at all that can be closed when not needed to let air flow through thanks

- Woonona(2 years ago)

G’day Hayden,

I’ve just checked this for you in-store, and the Smart Shade Pop-Up Beach Sunshelter does not have a mesh window on the back panel. 

If you have a look at the product image, you can see a seam down the middle of the shelter – this is a zip that allows you to open the back panel up to ventilate the shelter, so you will be able to get a good amount of air flow when you're using it.
