Portable shelter

As you can see, there are popup canopy tents for all outdoor occasions. However, we think that the Eurmax Ez Popup Canopy Tent is the best option for most people. It has a tall canopy with lots of head space and lets you add your desired amount of sidewalls. The window is also a nice touch if you fully enclose the canopy, letting you keep on eye on things outside your little sanctuary.

If you want maximum airflow without pests, then we recommend the Quick Set Pavilion Popup Shelter. It's very roomy and has screens on all sides that you can cover if it starts to rain. Plus, it can be moved after setup.
