The Whetstone is a free standing shelter is a lightweight, versatile and easy to set up. This updated version has had some little changes in terms of the style and fabrics used. Ideal for using at festivals and the beach.
Big Agnes says:
The Whetstone Shelter is the perfect accessory for long days at the beach, soccer tournaments, or music festivals. Rotate the shell with the sun for complete protection and use the mesh pockets to stash snacks, sunscreen, and coozies.
Big Agnes's 2020 Whetstone is a simple tarp shelter that makes a great sun-shelter or group hangout zone. It is surprisingly versatile and coming in at just over 1.6kg in weight it is a lot easier to transport and move than you'd expect. The simple but solid design works really well and can be adjusted and moved at anytime. It’s freestanding, so it sets up anywhere you can find a patch of level ground. The hooped shape sheds wind and helps it stay standing through gusts. The footprint is included and provides a floor and/or wall for the shelter.
