    I like the Buff pinwheel tents and planned to buy one for the CU-FSU game in Jax. Anyone own one? have any pros or cons for them?

    I just bought this tent up at the bookstore, set it up last night to install the top and it took all of 5 minutes. takedown was fast and it has a soft side case with wheels. paid $220.

    seems like a well made tent.

    nice. I have used several "quick shade" tents but none with logos. What brand is it? What kind of locking mechanisms are at the top(push button or ring pull?)

    One of they familys we tailgate close to at home games has one and as far as I know has used a few years now and it still looks good. I'm guessing they will have it again this year.

    :yeahthat:

    My cover is starting to get a little frayed. It's been through a lot in the last couple years. It's still good, but I would like a new cover.

    During the holidays I got my bro one of those from the bookstore. It was the last one without a box or case so we got a discount on it... So I am absolutely no help. Sorry for wasting your 5 seconds reading this...

    Thanks for the link, but that won't work. I don't need the whole tent, just the canvas cover. I have the frame. Plus, that tent is listed as 9x9, and my frame is 10x10.
