A trip to the lake with Lightspeed Outdoors (Giveaway Coming Soon)
We have a great giveaway coming up! One of my favorite events to join is Summer Splash! It gives me the opportunity to find great summer products to share with you (and my family). Summer is my favorite season, not only because it is my birthday but I love spending time with my family and this is when we do it most! This Summer Splash giveaway package is going to contain items that will get your family outdoors and spending time together!
The first sponsor I want to share with you is Lightspeed Outdoors! They make awesome tents and outdoor shelters. They sent me their Quick Shelter to review for you! The Quick Shelter is great for the beach, park, lake or wherever you may need a little place to get away from the sun. Here are some specs:
- Lightspeed Outdoors® top-pull hub system allows for ultra quick set up and tear down
- UPF 50+
- Front porch clips up for privacy
- Sand pockets on outside for added stability
- 3-walled shelter with extended canopy
- Color: Blue/Silver
We had a great weekend for the Teens birthday! The day after her party we took our LightSpeed Quick Shelter out for a test run! We went to a secluded spot on Apache Lake! I let Hubby set up the shelter. It was SO easy. All you do is put the 4 corners of the “floor” flat. Then you grab the 2 ropes and pull up and out. It snaps in to place! Just tie the two ropes into a bow. Now, the 4 corners can be staked down. Personally, I think if it isn’t windy you can skip the stakes. You don’t have to line up any poles or thread them through anything. It literally took 10 seconds to set up! Hubby was impressed which is hard to do! To take it down all you do is push down on the 2 gray poles at the top and it pops back out! Be careful though it is a sudden pop and scared Hubby and I both!
It was pretty windy that day so we did stake the corners, but not the “guy lines”. We also used the sand pockets at the base of the shelter for some added stability. We had no issues with it going anywhere!
There is a lot of room inside. You could definitely fit 2 camp/beach chairs inside. We left the chairs outside the shelter to leave room for us to eat our lunch picnic style. We were able to fit me and 3 kids (baby in the carrier) inside the shelter with Hubby on the “porch” comfortably!
On the inside walls there is a mesh window so you can see all the way around or you can attach the flaps with the toggle and elastic to close them!
We had such a great time at the lake! We wouldn’t have lasted without our Quick Shelter from Lightspeed! Normally this is where I would tell you things I might change or things I disliked but I honestly can’t see ANY! The Quick Shelter has blown us away with how easy it is to set up and take down! It folds away in a carry bag and takes up very little space for transport. If you like to take trips to the Beach, Lake, picnic at the park, soccer games or just about anywhere this is the best thing to take along and at a reasonable price! Especially considering that you only need one person to set it up!
