By Forrest Fisher
Ever noticed that it seems to take an outdoorsman or an outdoor group to come up with the best of the best ideas for outdoor use? It’s so true.
That’s why one of the Screen Tents (Quick-Set Escape Shelters) by CLAM seems to hit the nail on the head for protection from flying bug critters all year long. No matter where you live, there are pesky insects of some kind. With winter coming up and the snow birds heading south to Florida, there is an especially useful place to share one of these shelters, ON THE BEACH. Florida beaches in winter are famous for the “no see-ums,” those tiny bugs that bite, and one of these units is great for protection from the bugs and the sun on either watery sunshine coast in Florida.
My wife and I spread out two nice cozy (big) blankets on the sand and then pop up our 1660 Mag Tent Screen right on top of them. We’re finished in under a minute, literally, and both of us are pushing 70 years of totem pole marking. It’s that easy and maybe the best thing when you have grandkids and family along, these units are big and they’re tall too. Room and protection for everyone.
Our unit is 12 feet by 12 feet wide and is 7-1/2 feet high! It has the no-see-um screen windows all the way around and the roof and fabric are SPF-50 for sun protection. The side and roof panels also provide UV protection, something many of us have become more aware of these days. With the 6 stakes and tie-down ropes that come with the unit, you will enjoy a wonderful day in the sun free from bugs and flying sand.
The whole thing comes in a convenient carry bag that is light (34 pounds). We use a 2-wheel carry cart to move our shelter, chairs and our carefully stocked Yeti cooler to the beach and back from the vehicle. The same vehicle we use to beat the snow back during the memory of our brutal New York winters.
Hence, we drive down to Florida and love our stay there during the winter time, you can too, with one of these Mag Tent Screen units from CLAM. Fun times, no bugs, no sand, no sunburn, and also important – no snow! Love those Florida beaches in winter!
