Truly Instant Shelter

Hi, all

Here's a great product I just added to my kit- a Lightspeed Quickshelter.

It lives up to the name!
Very clever design- they've essentially built a sort of reverse umbrella, and it sets up VERY quickly
I bought this not only to use by itself, but to add to my pulldown awning footprint...
I'm carrying a spare rainfly, and this shelter set up at one end of the awning serves to support the fly, almost doubling the area under cover.
There's a video demonstrating the set-up at
LightSpeed Tents : Tent Details - Quick Shelter person tent

$38.00 at Costco right now, unless yours has already stopped carrying summer-season goods.
I think it's more expensive online.

Very neat, I remember many years ago I saw something very similar to this tent.

Cool! Makes me almost want to trade in the trailer for a tent. Almost.
