Whetstone Shelter

Sun-scorched campsites and rainy days at music festivals call for the adaptable shade and protection of the Big Agnes Whetstone Shelter. This ingenious shelter features adjustable webbing along the sides so you can quickly block the moving sun or protect yourself from fast-moving storms at a moment's notice. Durable polyester provides ample protection from the sun and elements, complete with fully taped seams that won't leak once it starts to rain.

It includes a footprint, so you won't have to sit on the dewy grass at your campsite or get sand all over yourself when you're lounging on the beach. Lightweight aluminum poles provide a sturdy structure, complete with four aluminum stakes for securing it to the ground surface below. Additionally, you'll find four interior mesh pockets for all your valuables when you're kicking back outside or even camping out in balmy conditions where bugs aren't a nuisance.

Great Shelter

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This shelter is awesome. Given the weight, you probably won't take it along with a tent to go backpacking but for days at the park or beach, this is great. Set up is simple with two pole sleeves and grommets. Construction is bombproof. When used with the floor, there is a fourth point staked to the ground, so it's a little more stable. Set up in the wind can be tricky without a partner. If you're using it somewhere sandy like the beach, think about buying some longer stakes. Purchased the large size which easily fits a couple adults and a dog/kid or two. This shelter is going to be a mainstay for travel and car camping trips.

Works great but...

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is a good product and I've only used it a few times, but it seems like it's not in it for the long haul... It sets up easy enough but the fabric has a tendency to bunch up on pinch both on setup and breakdown, and I could see it eventually tearing. The large is surprisingly big

Works well but ripped on second use

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this as a bday present for my wife, so she and our baby can have some shade at the beach. We were pleased when we set it up for the first time, however it ripped they day after. I was pushing the tent poll through the fabric to set it up, and like a spear it poked a hold right through the fabric. I would be giving this product a five star if it was made a little hardier.
