The Big Agnes Three Forks Shelter is a versatile, free-standing shelter that offers good protection from the sun and light wind. The updated fabrics and full DAC pole set up is a top quality improvement on the older version.
Big Agnes says:
Living in Colorado with its ample sunshine and sweeping winds has given us plenty of motivation to dream up our own version of a sunshade, thus the Three Forks Shelter was born. Steep wall architecture with removable side walls (sold separately) protect your party from wind and sun and a webbing connection frame that offers additional structural stability, the Three Forks Shelter is a friend to anyone headed to an all-day soccer tournament, rafting the Grand, or needing to keep gear and people out of the elements on a camping trip (fits perfectly over a picnic table).
Big Agnes's 2020 Three Forks Shelter is a fantastic shelter for family and group get togethers. It packs down to a good size considering how big it is when set up. You can comfortably fit up to four adults inside with four large chairs and a table. This version sees an update and upgrade in terms of the fabrics and pole set with top quality DAC aluminium poles now provided. This is the kind of shelter you will find yourself using more and more, whether it's in the garden, at the beach or as a basecamp shelter, it's so versatile.
The shelter has a webbing connection frame that connects to the four poles on the ground for added stability. You will have to be careful not to trip on them though, especially if it's used on a sandy beach as they can be easily hidden. You can also purchase the removable side wall for added protection on windy days.
