Ozark Trail screen house, 13ft x 10ft

Overall we think this shelter can be considered the best pop up canopy tent for large get-togethers thanks to the 12x12 footprint. EZ-Up impressed us with a thoughtful balance of convenience, ease of use, affordability, portability, and quality. It will also serve street vendors, fair volunteers, local community barbeques, music festivals, or sporting events exceptionally well. EZ-Up's proprietary Auto Slider Pull-Pin technology, located where the legs meet the pyramid frame, provides a quick lock release with an effortless tug of the pin. It's not a coincidence they built their name and reputation on this process. EZ-Up tents are always at the top of our list of the easiest pop up canopies to set up because of their pull-pin technology, smooth EZ-Glide truss washers, and Velcro attachments. Now unable to get all the parts I need to make it worth repairing. We bought this screen tent about 2 years ago and just took it out of the box to put it up. I could not even get the top frame together with out it either bending the poles or coming apart. This oversized EZ-Up canopy includes the recent design change in the top locks and leg adjustment locks to make setup even easier. While this design is catching on with most brands, EZ–Up has pioneered and mastered the technology. The Crown Shades Canopy has unparalleled ease of setup thanks to its patented push center lock technology. With just one press, all four legs are locked in place simultaneously – taking away the need for multiple people when it comes to assembly and reducing set-up time down to mere minutes! This allows you alone to quickly establish a shaded area so that you can focus on enjoying your day instead of struggling with complicated setup procedures. The stout steel construction and hammer-tone powder-coated finish give the legs an industrial feel that is much stronger than lightweight aluminum frames found in many competitors. The waterproofing is so impressive it's almost easy to forget the sun protection it offers. Sandbags are typically the most effective way to secure a pop up tent while at the beach so you won't have to transport the weight. Tie-downs with guy lines and ground stakes are a great option for grass and backyard anchoring. Weighted plates that slide onto the tent's steel feet are recommended for hard surfaces like decks, patios, or parking lots. At first glance, it looks like the square footage is quite a bit more than other screen houses in this article. However, because of the sloped angle of the tent walls, there’s less than 195 square feet of usable space.
Seasons-wise & climate-wise, they describe it as a 3-season tent. But I do not think this is so, and I see it best suited for summer camping only. With so much mesh on the ceiling you would not want to use it in a cool environment. This is a tent for very quiet weather conditions without much rain and wind. The walls and the fly are a poly taffeta 185T with a decent 1200 mm waterproof rating.
