The tent measures a spacious 78.8-inches by 55.1-inches by 51.5-inches, comfortably fitting two to three adults.

It features a convenient pop-up design and folds into a portable carrying bag, weighing in at less than four pounds. The exterior has UPF 50+ sun protection, keeping those inside cool and protected from the sun.

The anti-UV tent has a four-sided ventilation design with three mesh windows and comes with sandbags, stakes, and wind ropes to keep it upright on windy days.
