Some things are made for the shade. The Shade Maker 2 sun shelter is big enough to shelter your whole family from the sun or rain and sets up really, really fast. Spacious 100 square-foot floor to accommodate everyone. A convenient backpack-style carry bag adds to the ease of creating shade on the go.
|Intended Use:||Sun Protection|
We just used this first time for the beach and it works very well. I ended up buying larger sand specific stakes(4) to stake out the 4 corners. This worked well and kept tent in place given wind on beach. I would recommended buying some good stakes rather than using supplied ones if using this in sand.
Set up is pretty simple even with one person. Its very novel that the carrying bag is actually a little backpack which makes carrying this to beach easy. This works well if you are into "manspreading" at the Jersey Shore, or need to establish advanced base camp for the kids and family. Overall worked well, kept my kids form burning in sun, kept me cool, but kept my beer cooler. Stoke level A+. Ryan on Jul 21st 2017

I like the construction but was looking for a shelter for raft cooking". This is a bit small for that purpose but will make a great addition to my collection of shades for smaller groups. Unknown on May 11th 2016
I recently bought the Shade Maker 2 and cannot be happier. We first used it on a blazing hot 100+ degree day in Arizona and it haves us some much needed shade. Last weekend I had it out on the beach on an extremely windy day in Malibu and staked it down with the guy lines and had no issues whatsoever. I have recommended this to a ton of people already!

I WANT TO ECHO THE ABOVE REVIEW!!!! I too have repeatedly checked this web site to buy a shade shelter and the product is ALWAYS OUT OF STOCK!!! Why advertise the product? KELTY GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER. Seems like they don't want the business or can't be bothered to keep the website accurate and up to date....they want you to shop somewhere else for this kind of product. I give up. David on Jun 23rd 2015
Have the original Shade Maker and have nothing negative to say about it, just a suggestion make the optional shade walls reach the ground instead of a few inches off of it. Would have given it a 4 out of 5 but wanted to combat the last review of 1 of 5. Brian on Jun 22nd 2015
For three years I have attempted to buy this product of a similar Kelty shelter and it is always out of stock - why they advertise it and never have any stock of these products is both stupid and annoying. John on May 25th 2015
