Tent that even I could set up

Pros: easy to install, no camping / tent experience needed
Cons: lightspeed doesn't make shoes
" I am not mechanically gifted, but a friend of mine had a light speed tent last month and I saw him put together the thing in 20 seconds!
I immediately went to costco and am completely impressed with this tent. No poles to connect, no straps and trying to bend to reach opposite corners.
You literally just pull up in the middle, lock it down, and your tent is ready. I hope they start making other types of products, like dishwashers or something. "

Easy Shade at the beach

Pros: easy to erect, simple to break down, light weight easy to carry., attractive colors, self contained. no tent poles to assemble.
Cons: could be a little deeper
Model Number: Model 11649606
" I got the Pink Quick Draw sun shelter, (already had the larger Blue Quick Shelter.) This is so easy to put up and take down. Less than 30 seconds to erect, and less than a minute to secure it in the bag. The stakes were good for the hard packed sand here the Gulf Coast of Florida, but I would buy longer stakes for most other beaches. It's handy to carry a small mallet, as well. This is a decent size for a single adult, (perhaps a couple of children,) although when I was sitting in my beach chair in the shelter, (at noon,) my feet were still in the sun. Minor issue- just cover with a towel, or set up add'l umbrella. I use the larger Lightspeed Quick Shelter when sharing. Great item! "

Love It!

Model Number: R-SH QKDRW BL
" This is extremely easy to set up and take down. I read the reviews before I ordered it and read that some had problems with the take down. It is not hard at all. I read the instructions for set up and take down before I tried it and it's super easy. I set it up and took it down twice already and it took me all of, maybe, 5mins to do both. I have a 6mth old and two older boys. Both older boys are in all kinds of sports and it will be perfect for me to have the baby on a blanket in the inside while I sit in my chair right in front. My only suggestions would be for them to add a piece of material that extends a little farther out from the opening in the front and to add flaps that can close the mesh parts in case it starts to sprinkle. But all in all, I love it! "

Assembly easy, storage... not

Pros: easy up
Cons: ridiculous to put in carrying bag
" So easy to put up. Need to use stakes if there's any breeze, which is not a problem. The issue is putting away the shelter. I think it is packaged in the slender carrying bag for marketing. The slender bag makes it even MORE appealing. However, you would have to spend quite some time and a whole lot of patience and precision to get the thing back in the carrying bag with ease. And... that kinda defeats the "easy up" feature. You spend extra time and get frustrated at the end. "

Shady and light and EASY 1 minute open/close

Pros: pricecompact easy set up
Cons: wish costco sold them in stores not just online.
Model Number: quick draw
" Not deep enough to lay down in legs will be out in the sun but nice big mesh sides for cool ventilation, 4 or 5 kids or two adults seated could be happy inside, Pocket, up high in back for things to keep out of the sand, phones,cameras etc,like the built in floor, and simple fast pull up, put down. Good for beach,parks,tailgate parties you name it! "
