We have used it as our cooking and dinner extension to our tent. No more wet cooking equipment, chairs and the table in the morning! No more hassle of covering or putting away your chairs, table in the evening! Very stable, managed to hold strong wind!
We purchased this shelter as a day tent for our 3 week holiday in the south of France this summer, it housed our cooking station, full sized fridge, storage & table & chairs! The sides were great to protect from the early morning sun, you can open and close the sides according to the position of the sun for shade and then in the evening open them totally! My only negative would be that we could do with it being slightly bigger! The shelter withstood a 10 hour thunder storm too!! Really impressed with quality although rather heavy in bag!
This is an excellent shelter, whether bing used in the garden or for camping. Easy set up, great quality
Used it at the 80s rewind festival , it was the kitchen in the morning and the lounge in the evening sitting 8 people on camping chairs with ease. Easy to put up and take down and kept everything dry inside when it rained heavily over night. Using it on the beach next as a family shelter.
Bought it to create some share whilst camping in Lake Garda, brilliant and the surface reflected the heat. Also stood up brilliantly in storms perfecto!!!
Highly recommended. Good quality product
Bought this in June 2015 used for about a month, was very happy with the product. The following year 2016 once again we used it in Spain for 4 weeks. It was packed away safely, and stored for another year. Upon erecting it at the start of our holiday this year we noticed the roof fabric had a split of about 4" , as we had to use it we taped it up with gaffer tape. A couple of weeks into our holiday yet another split has appeared. I would expect this should last longer than 3 months use, a cheap plastic gazebo for about £20 is far better quality and lasts a lot longer. I wouldn't recommend buying one unless you are happy for it to only last a for couple of months use.

We were after a summer alternative to our porch which can get really hot in the sun but still wanted some cover from wind etc for evening drinks.
You need to make sure it is properly pegged down in higher than normal wind but an extra peg is easy enough and definitely recommended on set up.
If you're thinking about a shelter then this is great for the price in comparison to more expensive/leading brands.
This is our third season with this great shelter. We've assembled and disassembled it about 15 times, it's kept us dry and cool and looks great, just like the day we've bought it. It's heavy for a reason - rock solid decathlon technology. I would absolutely recommend this product, I expect we will get many more years out of it.
This was a great piece of kit. Very easy to put together I did it for the first time and on my own in 15 minutes. Big enough for table and chairs for my family of 5 with kitchen equipment. Three opening sides are a great idea. Love it!
