Your private shelter is waiting. Awesome at the beach, in the park, or before a game, the three-sided Cabana sun shelter provides instant protection from the beating sun or a surprise thunderstorm. Easy to pitch and anchor, it’s a secluded escape complete with front door and big side widows for ventilation. Don’t get wet or sweat. Relax and stay a while.
|Intended Use:||Sun Protection|
I am part of the Kelty pro-purchase program so I am partial to Kelty gear. I use the Cabana in the spring/late fall trips to NC beaches exclusively. It blocks the wind nicely and keeps the heat in. I would def. NOT recomend the shelter for summer as you will die of heat stroke. It fits 4 chairs side by side inside. Overall it’s light, has its own backpack & great for the cost! It has saved us on numerous trips to the beach when it was cold but we wanted enjoy the trip & sit on the beach. It is also a spot to change into a wet suit from a sitting position. It can keep you dry in a short/light rain, but this is not its intended use. NCman on Nov 4th 2017
Large for its style, small enough for for the day trips. Setup was quick also. Unknown on Jul 7th 2017
I have had one of these for a few years now. My main use for it is for fishing in Colorado. It's fairly compact and easy to set up. If you've ever been to Colorado for any period of time, you know the weather changes quickly sometimes. I like to set this up on the bank of my favorite lake. It blocks the wind when it's breezy, Keeps me from getting wet when I's sprinkling and when it's cold I put a propane heater inside and half zip the front so I can still see my poles but stay warm. Great idea!!! Thanks Kelty!!! Darin on Apr 2nd 2016
pretty darn easy to use, good space for two
windows allow pretty good air flow, but can get a bit warm inside
love the carry bag
all in all- good value mmm on Mar 29th 2016
PROS: Lightweight, small, easy/quick setup, sandbag anchors (easy relocation) CONS: Traps heat, small, sandbag anchors don't close enough to keep sand from spilling all over (the nylon pouches need a flap to tuck on top of the sand), the floor and closing panel makes this act more like a tent than a quick shelter, the front closing panel doesn't secure well (connects from bottom to top, which throws debris from the flap into the shelter) BEST USES: kids, covered play area on a cool day in a backyard, observing sporting events from the grass, quick changing room AVOID: Sandy areas / beaches, hot weather, islands with lots of flying insects Overall: I was disappointed with the performance of the product. Aesthetics are spot-on, but the functionality isn't what I thought it would be or what I expected from a Kelty purchase. For some reason, the shelter trapped heat extremely well--despite the two mesh windows being open--and actually made me want to stay in the sun instead of using the shelter (which defeats the purpose). Next, the size is quite small, which makes it ideal for children OR 2x adults while sitting and stationary in small camp chairs). Finally, the fabric overhang on the top front prevents insects from being able to escape once they find their way in (a no-go if you're frequently around the type that fly and bite or sting). If you're looking at this product as an escape from the sun while camping at the beach, there are better choices. Tim on Jun 14th 2015
