A New Kind of Beach Tent
Beach tents have come a LONG way in recent years. Sun Ninja revolutionized the beach tent industry when it launched its compact, easy to assemble lycra beach tent a few years back. The entire tent can fit in a small bag and only weighs a few pounds. 1 person can assemble it using anchors or the weight of the integrated sand bags when filled. It stands up to wind like a champ and even when the wind is not blowing, the 4 included poles keep the tent standing tall and protecting you from the sun, unlike there Shibumi sun shade. It’s truly amazing!
As time went on, there were many imposters that tried to take what Sun Ninja had created and come up with their own version. While many competitors failed in quality of material, design, and other features, Neso has become an actual viable competitor to Sun Ninja, but with flaws in our opinion.
Our Pick is Sun Ninja
If you are comparing the Sun Ninja vs Neso, there are a few things you should know. We have both. We have used both a lot! We spend our entire summers down at the beach. Every day, we have to put up at least one beach tent and usually 2-3 when we have large groups of friends and family visiting. We stopped using our Neso tents (yes we tried several) after a few days each. The bottomline is the material Neso uses is too stretchy and their poles are too tall. Its a really bad combo functionally. It may be ok when there is zero wind, but as soon as you have a day thats windy (typically 12+mph where we live) your tent is going to flop around like crazy and eventually tumble over. Put simply, Sun Ninja does not do this. The fabric stays much tighter and the poles are a great height, just tall enough to walk under and not so tall that the angles and physics of the entire product make it fall over in high wind. Our pick is the Sun Ninja beach shade.
