This shelter is, as its name suggests - free standing. The top quality Eastman Aluminum poles are placed in such a way that the tarp shelter requires no guy lines or tent pegs to hold it up. Tabs are strategically placed around the outside of the tarp to tie down in a wind.
One of the great benefits of the Free Standing Shelter is that it can be set up in minutes. You are sitting beside you campfire when a sudden rain comes up, in a few minutes your Free Standing Shelter is erected and you are again sitting beside your campfire, warm and dry.
A feature not shown in the picture is the no-see-um netting door. This door is attached to the Free Standing Shelter with Velcro. The door can be easily removed when it is not required; then quickly reattached when those pesky critters attack. The door has a center zipper.
The Free Standing Shelter comes in your choice of 2 different materials. The one pictured is made with the tougher Flag nylon. The other is the lighter weight, more compact and slightly less expensive Ripstop nylon. The Flag comes in white as pictured, the Ripstop in a very light gray.
The best feature of the Free Standing Shelter is that it is constructed by Horizons Unlimited with our high standards in mind. We are confident you will be pleased with the quality of this product.
