The Sun Ninja Beach Tent Pop is a lightweight, elastic spandex sun shade that offers UPF 50 sun protection and pops up pretty much anywhere in three straightforward steps. You can either use it with two or four lightweight aluminum stability poles.
Constructing the four-person pop-up shade (which measures 7 feet x 7.5 feet and weighs 7.2 pounds) is easy enough and is doable solo—although it’s definitely helpful to have a second set of hands to assist.
To set it up, stretch the fabric out flat on the ground, then fill each of the four corner pouches with sand. (Don’t be shy; the instructions say to pack each corner to the point of overflow, and it truly makes a difference.)
No sand? No problem. The Sun Ninja beach tent also comes with four metal pegs for use on grass or other solid surfaces, along with four collapsible aluminum poles that measure 5 feet 5 inches high when extended.
