I couldn't stand it either. Leaving for Ocracoke N.C. April 16th. Just purchased one also.

We just picked up one too! We didn't need one to go over the picnic table so we grabbed the 72x72 inch Traveler Shelter.
There were a couple of nights last year just north of Ely Mn we could've really used it!

Mine came a couple days ago. I think I will give it a try in the yard tomorrow.

I must be all thumbs. My new one didn't go up quite so quickly. A couple of the panels were difficult to pop out... as I pulled on them, the entire unit kept dragging toward me instead. One in particular was really obstinate. Maybe it was made a little tighter than usual or something. In the end it took me more like about 3 minutes to pop all panels including the roof.

Taking it down was even worse, but all my fault. Short term memory loss?? I read the instructions, but an hour later I completely forgot what I was doing! Popped all but one of the side panels in before I realized that I hadn't collapsed/stowed the doorway poles. I had to pop a couple of sides back out, go in and fix that. Then I got the sides popped in again, and DOH! I didn't pop down the top yet!! I swear, it's a good thing no one was videotaping....

Got mine yesterday. Unpacked this morning and put in front yard to erect. No luck until I realized it was laying upside down. Was much easier when I flipped it over. I collapsed it with ease but was a wrestling match to get it back in the bag. Practice will make perfect. Wife loves it (me too). Went inside and ordered 3 wind panels.

I like that mini clam. They didn't make that when we bought ours, but I dig the size

Finally got our first camping trip in on Saturday night and got to use our green CLAM screen shelter.

Just as the advertising said: it goes up and down in about a minute and fits back in the carrying bag without any hassle (keep and use the tie up strips it comes with). We had 70 degrees of temp and it heated up a bit inside. The breeze came through, the dog was OK being inside it, and the panels added some privacy (get two sets of panels if you want privacy). The bag is long, but it fits in our Highlander with all the back seats down. Seems like it will be great when the mosquitos come out next month.

When I tried mine, it took almost two minutes to set up, not counting staking.

I never got the panels yet. Not worried about privacy, would rather be able to see out, but I was thinking of getting a set for the windward side, for when it is windy and/or raining.
