Without adequate shelter in the great outdoors, you’re just going to get a table full of spoiled food, lukewarm beverages and a bunch of sunburned and grumpy people. Save yourself the trouble, and get yourself a proper shelter, like the Zempire Shelterbase.
The canopy has a silver coating will help deflect heat, and it is rated SPF 50+ so it will be protected from deteriorating in the sun. The fabric is also waterproof, so it will also protect you from a spot of wet weather. The seams on this shelter are also fully sealed so you will have plenty of protection from a range of conditions. You won’t need to fuss around too much with this shelter as it is freestanding – so it’s super easy to set up and take down.
With added clip on mesh or solid walls you can enclose your shelter from the elements, and the canopy pulls off, so you can pack it up and put it away with ease. This model is perfect for setting up some reliable shade for warm days, or for taking with you on your next camping trip.
Provides great protection from the sun and is waterproof. Material is heavier than other shelters of similar design. My wife loves the corner pockets. "Put it in the pocket" has become a running joke. It is heavy, but no more so than the traditional square type shelters and it packs up smaller. It does take a minimum of 2 people to set it up. I would definitely recommend it and feel that I have received better than average value for the money spent.
We have been looking for a long time for a dome shelter that is waterproof. This is it. It is far superior to other popular "shelter domes" that are only for shade. This shelter is both shade and extremely waterproof. We had very heavy rain, and not a drop got through. The structure is similar to other shelters, but smaller. The fixtures and tighteners are of really nice quality and fit really well, holding the material smooth and tight. The shelter came with one wall, and we bought a second. These walls also fit really tightly. We were thoroughly impressed with this item, and will look to buy futher Zempire products in the future.
The only negative. It is very heavy at 22 kg. Makes the bag hard for a small woman to carry. The setting up and putting down isn't hard, but requires at least two adults and two kids.
Dry simple structure to install / disassemble plus provides ample shade and protection. Side panels make a huge difference
How quick is this to put up compared with the Colman Fast Pitch Event 12?
We haven't set up the Shelterbase in store as of yet, but I've spoken to Zempire and they've said that the Shelterbase shelter should take you about 10 minutes, or 15 maximum to set up.
From comparing the instructions for the Shelterbase, with the pitching video for the Fast Pitch 12 - they are a very similar setup but perhaps the Fast Pitch will be a bit faster at around 5 minutes as there seems to be less steps.
Does this come with any walls or do you order them separately?
I’ve just confirmed with Zempire, and they say that the Shelterbase Shelter does come with pre-attached guy ropes on all the peg point areas.
