Bought this sun shelter as my daughter has recently started lifeguards competitions which means long days at the beach. The shelter seems to attract the sun and on the 2 occasions we have tried to use it we have been unable to sit inside it because it is too hot. If you want a sweat box, buy this. If you want shelter from the sun you can actually use, buy a beach umbrella. The shelter is a waste of money.
I am sorry for the situation, but the main purpose of this shelter is to protect you from wind and rain. If you are looking for UV protection, I would recommend the 2 seconds XL fresh,a innovative canvas which reduces the heat felt in the direct sunlight.
