This is a lifesaver if you have Small children at the beach! It takes up no space and can easily fit in a beach bag (even with the floor may folded into the tent bag). The only "negative" is that it is a little tricky to learn how to collapse it to get it into the bag. I have to find a video on YouTube to remind myself if I haven't done it in a while, but once you get the hang of it it is super easy! This is a great price I paid over $60 at One Step Ahead a couple of years ago!
