If the weight and bulk of traditional gazebos always stop you from taking shade with you on the go, then the Weekender Backpack Gazebo from Companion is a game changer.
This easy to assemble gazebo has been cleverly designed to be lightweight and compact, so you can just carry it with you on your back. The canopy provides UP50+ protection from the harsh sun and is also water repellent to 800mm if you encounter a bit of a drizzle. Stability is provided by the durable powder coated steel frame, and the height can be adjusted to 1.5m, 1.8m or 2.0m.
This shelter also comes with a sun wall for warm weather, and a backpack to make transport easy-peasy. Perfect for picnics, sporting events or anywhere else where you need compact shade, the Weekender Backpack Gazebo is an easy to assemble shade option for shorter trips.
Great gazebo. Fits on my motorbike quite nicely. Fitted everything under it that we needed to
Made to be light enough to carry so height is limited. Suggest it needs guy ropes and extra pegs. The pegs supplied can be bent too easily.
Used this for the 1st time last weekend on a day trip picnic. Very quick and easy to put up. Great to sit under and have lunch. Light to carry. We are very pleased with it.
Check the height carefully before you buy this - anyone of normal height will have to duck constantly to get under the edge. Not impressed.
Partner uses this to kick back under while I fish by the river. Easy to carry and set up (beats an umbrella). Only gripe is none of the seams are taped, so when it rains this is next to useless. I had to line the inside with tarp to stop the rain dripping through. Plan on amending this myself in some downtime. Other then that its a good bit of gear with room for improvement to make it even better.
Can you attach guide ropes to gazebo
I've just grabbed out our display model to have a look for you and can confirm that the Companion Weekender Backpack Gazebo does have some tabs that you can tie guy ropes to.
If I applied waterproofing spray and sealed the seams would this sufficiently keep me dry underneath in a bit of a strong shower.
Provided that the wind wasn't blowing the rain sideways, a good coat of waterproofing spray and sealing the seams should be enough for you to stay dry in a decent shower underneath your Companion Weekender Backpack Gazebo.
Can this gazebo be set up by one person?
Our shop assistant, Jennie, set up one of the Companion Weekender Backpack Gazeboes over the weekend to display on our shop floor. She told me that she had no issues at all setting it up all on her own.
I'm just wondering if this would hold up if I were to take it to the beach with strong wind?
Very few things in the gazebo world are totally windproof, especially when it picks up to a good rate of knots. The Companion Weekender Backpack Gazebo is a really great little lightweight gazebo that can be transported easily. To allow for the lightweight aspect of this gazebo they've needed to make the frame a little lighter than many other gazeboes are. I'd certainly not recommend erecting this in strong winds as it might lead to an unfortunate end.
Are the pegs etc supplied with the gazebo?
That's right, the included pegs go into the base of each leg. The Gazebo doesn't include guy ropes.
