MasterCanopy Durable Ez Pop-up Gazebo Tent with Roller Bag(3x3M,Black)
About this deal
Thinking a nice gazebo is just a little bit out of your price range? Well, you can stop right there and take a look at this cheap pop-up gazebo that is pleasing a long list of customers. With its smaller dimensions, it is also a good choice for those of you with smaller gardens where space can be limited. In addition to the large drape curtains, the KEXMY pop-up gazebo also comes with netted sides to keep gnats, midges, and flies outside and away from you, your food and your drinks. The netting is colour matched to the gazebo, at least ours was, and the material is not flimsy in any way.
I have set the gazebo up in varying conditions since then, but it does start to feel a little unstable once winds get above 30-40km/h. That said, I was using my gazebo in a very exposed spot – if you’ve got more shelter around, whether in the form of trees, buildings, or anything else, then you shouldn’t have any issues with stability.Strong winds are also a common feature of our wonderful summers, but thankfully, you won’t have to worry about chasing this gazebo down the street every five minutes. Included with the gazebo are strong ropes to secure it, and four weight bags that can be filled with water. These bags, once filled and attached, actually do an excellent job of providing additional support to the frame, and when combined with the easy to stake feet, you have yourself a gazebo that can hold its own against those strong gusts. Solid and sturdy are how I would describe the frame on this pop-up gazebo. The combination of iron and steel components gives it a lot of strength and stability, while the powder coating has also been done well and should help to fight rust for quite some time. Being located in the North East of Scotland means that I have some seriously high expectations when a product claims to be weatherproof. What makes things even more challenging is the fact that my farm sits at the top of a hill, meaning that every day is a windy one.
After you have everything set up and have staked the feet into the ground with the supplied metal pegs, you then need to connect the provided guy ropes to the gazebo. The other end of each rope attaches to a metal peg, which you insert into the ground – this helps to hold everything in place. We all know that UK summers are not all about sunshine, and out of the blue thunder showers are quite common, so of course it’s important to have a pop-up gazebo that is not just going to let the rain through. I’m happy to say that after putting it to the test, this model is in fact waterproof like ABC Canopies claim. We timed how long it took to put up and take down each gazebo. We also rated each one for how easy it is to adjust the height and tighten the fabric roof.
I appreciated that the frame comes fully assembled, so all you need to do is stretch this out, secure the cover over the top with the attached velcro straps, and then extend the legs. It does help that there are instructions to guide you, and these are cleverly printed onto the carry bag, so you won’t be able to lose them. However, the instructions aren’t completely accurate, so a small amount of guesswork is involved, especially when it comes to fitting the cover. Running a very close, joint second to the outstanding ABC Canopy product, is this pop-up gazebo that comes to us courtesy of Master Canopy, and available in four different sizes. The 3×3 metre version that we got our hands on will provide you with around 9 square metres of sheltered space, so probably enough to house 6 people sitting very comfortably on garden furniture, or 8-10 standing more closely together.
