Awhile back I found myself invited to a product launch that took place at the FIVB volleyball world finals in Florida. The one thing I remember was how hot it was! The sand burned my feet the second I removed my sandals. When I wasn’t in the VIP area of the stadium, the one thing I could have used while I was just hanging out on the beach was a beach tent just like the Neso.
The Neso is a beach tent is stakeless, water-resistant tent that provides beach bums with near UV-free shade. So what’s it like to use and should you buy it?
Let’s talk about setup first. Setting up the Neso beach tent is seriously a breeze. That’s mainly because there’s really only four simple steps: unpacking, stretching the tent out flat, filling the anchors with sand (or whatever other natural and heavy materials might be laying around) and propping the tent up with the included poles.
The very first time I set the Neso beach tent up (in my backyard, actually) it only took me about seven minutes start to finish. Now that I’ve got it all figured out I think it will take me about three or four minutes from now on.
And tear-down is equally painless. If this tent was hard to setup or take down, it would be a deal killer (for me, at least). Thankfully that’s not the case.
One thing that’s really great about this tent is just how light it is… it’s SUPER light. That matters because you’ve got to haul it with you to the beach or wherever it is that you’re planning on taking it. If it was heavy, it’d be a pain. Thankfully, it’s like carrying around air (not literally, but truly it’s like carrying nothing — you almost don’t notice it slung over your shoulder when it’s in the included carrying bag).
So if it’s so light… does it blow away when the wind picks up? Nope. I mean, I suppose it could if a strong enough wind came through, but if you anchor it right — including in the right direction — and have the poles position in a way that the tent collects less wind… you’ll be just fine.
I was really surprised at how strong the tent material is considering how light it is. It’s a tough, stretchy fabric that has ...
