This tent was so fun to have at the beach. You can move in and out freely because of the front opening space. The kids like getting in it because they were able to lay down. They were also able to change clothes in it; you can hold a towel up and they can change in it. This has a small mesh net like material that is on it so that you can see behind you. This also allows a good amount of air the flow through so that you don’t feel hot while you are inside of it. It was windy when we took this to the beach so I was happy that this came with stakes that you can stick into the ground so that it does not blow away. You can get one here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ID30D9S I was able to push them deep into the sand so that it would hold in place and it did. This is very light weight so you can carry it with you without a struggle. It comes with a case and it shows instructions on a tab on how to fold it back down. We were able to hit the sand out and fold it back down. This pops up within seconds. Overall, I would recommend this. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
