This sunshade is the best! As moms we are all about our kids playing on the playground, but this doesn’t mean we like to sweat! Our family lives in Saint George and our summer afternoons are always above 100 degrees. Even with a shade, there is no helping the sweat bath that will ensue. The worst!
When my son signed up for soccer last spring I worried about all those games we’d attend and watch in the sweltering sun. Immediately, I looked for an umbrella at all of our local stores. Then, I came across this gem in the isle of Costco. (Although this is not the same tent- it is very similar- grab this!)
When my husband and I go camping, we take these massive canopies. They are perfect to provide shade for a large space and people, but near impossible to set up on my own. When I found this sunshade I wanted to make sure I could set it up on my own. The box promotes one-hand set up. And believe me- setting up this sunshade really is easy! You just pull the string, and hold the base with the other hand. Wallah!
Not only is the sunshade super easy to set-up and handy to have at a soccer game, it also has windows to peek through on the sides. Shade is essential, but sometimes you have to angle the tent away from the playground, proving difficult to see where the kids are playing. Simple solution- unzip the side a little- you can see the kids and still have shade.
The side of the tent keeps the wind and rain off the spectators and it’s big enough to fit in a whole crew! The first time we pulled out our tent it rained the whole time at the soccer game. We squished a bunch of people inside- and totally fit!
If you find yourself outside as a spectator, mediator or just being a mom at the park often- save yourself the sweaty afternoon and get this shade-tent. We enjoy using the shade at the splash pad, soccer field- basically anywhere we need quick and portable shade. A purchase well spent!
