Bug Proof Coleman Screen Shelter Gazebo

With the beautiful, balmy summer nights finally arriving, its time to entertain outdoors.

But I find that as the sun goes down, out come the mosquitoes. So there you are settled down with a cool drink, in your favorite lounger slapping away at the mossies. Or you have to burn citronella lamps or slap on the repellent, neither of which smell the best.

Well not any more. The Coleman Instant Screened Shelter  is absolutely ideal for lounging around in the great outdoors and keeping you protected from the bugs

It is so fast and easy to put up because of the Coleman InstaClip construction and the 5 shock corded poles that keep the tent fabric nice and taut.

But not only is this shelter simple to put up it  has a center hub and windstrong system so that the frame is locked into place giving the shelter the strength to stand up to windy conditions, so you can still stay outside comfortably even when summer breezes pick up. This resistance to wind is also helped by the guy lines that also give the shelter added stability.

Now some of the other features of this screen shelter is that it  is made from a durable polyester taffeta thas a 450 millimeter water resistant PU coating that is also is CPAI-84 flame resistance compliance. It has roof vents for airflow, two large doors, non-wicking threads and zippers, a hanging pocket organizer  that conveniently holds all those small items and it all comes in a handy storage bag that keeps everything together.

The shelter measures 15′ x 13′ and has a 7’4″ center height so there is plenty of headroom and space to move around in.

Review: Wenzel Mackinaw Screen Gazebo

wenzel-mackinaw-screen-gazeboIf you are like a lot of people, you love the outdoors. But also if you are like a lot of people you may not like all the bugs and pest that can bother you while you are in the outdoors.

For many people, this means they will sacrifice being able to enjoy the outside in order to avoid those bugs. But this does not have to be the case. With the Wenzel Mackinaw Screen Gazebo you can have the best of both words.

The Wenzel Mackinaw Screen Gazebo is a 15′ x 13′ gazebo that you can pop into place in no time. Think of the easiest tent you could take with you on a camping trip and you are in the ballpark of what you will get with this gazebo.

It has been created with a steel frame can condenses down into a small duffel bag, but then telescopes out to it’s full size in just moments. The walls are also pre attached so once you use the telescoping feature on the frame, you’re done.

If you are in an area that has a lot of wind or are thinking of using it on the beach, there are also guy ropes that you can use to make it a bit more stable.

Once it’s up, move on in and enjoy the outdoors, without the pests. With a center that is 7 feet tall, there is enough room to stand upright and enjoy yourself and quick zip doors make it easy to get in and out.

What We Like

  • This is a snap to set up. Just open the steel frame pieces and the rest of the gazebo is already attached and ready to go.
  • That it can be folded down into a very small size and put in a duffle bag to make it easy to take with you on trips.
